Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Jonr CP Minsk
I really enjoyed my stay at the Crowne Plazza in Minsk. It has gone a long way to restore my faith after a not so good experience at the CP in Paris recently. What really stood out for me was the staff and the friendly and efficient service I received during my stay. It was my first time in Belarus and what made the big difference to my trip was the ease of airport transfers arranged via the guest relations desk.
Only criticism was that the cleaning trolley seemed to be permanently situated outside of my room. Attention to detail guys, please park the trolley in a non public area!
The hotel is also situated in a good area of the city with some quality local restaurants within 5 - 10 mins walk from the hotel.
Well done CP Minsk! BTW, the Italian restaurant on the second floor of the hotel is also to be recommended in my opinion.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by DonnyDave One of the best in Minsk
I have stayed in many hotels in Minsk, over 15 years. This is far and away the best of the current crop. That doesn't mean it's 5 star by w european standards, but still the best I have stayed in in Minsk.
That may change when the new hotels that are currently being built (for the Ice hockey championships in 2014) all start opening.
When that happens, the CP will have to buck its ideas up in some respects. I agree that the rooms and beds are not as comfortable as a couple of years ago. And there is a generally lower maintenance standard - but not BAD, just not as good as before.
But in my experience, the rooms are comfortable enough and well provisioned, the restaurant food is really good, and the location is great.
It's pretty highly priced per night, but not that bad when compared to other similar quality hotels.
A colleague says the pool/gym are quite good too.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by badulius bed and rooms with little maintenance
I'm a frequent traveller in this hotel due to my job.
I notice a decrease in maintenance:
mattress old and deformed
tv channel choice poor bad smell of cigarettes in no smoking rooms
tolerated presence of "girls in search of men" in the bar
when new hotel will be opened in Minsk late this year I'll move from Crowne Plaza for sure

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by 780474518Platinum Too high room rate that not equal to hotel atmosphere and service
Coridors not clean, staff have low qualification, airport transer dismissed, quality of food at lobby bar is bad, especially Japanese menu.

My stay in this disgusting Dirty Hotel was not good.
I posted a review which has not been put on site as it shows the total inadequate service and attitude of the hotel
Dirty Room, non locking door, wash your own cups and glasses daily
Non replenishment of towels and finally left with one hand towel
Waste left in room from previous occupant not cleaned away till a complaint made again
Hotel Guide book, take no notice of as the 2 differing numbers to contact reception dont work
If you need a Doctor forget it, they can not arrange, although it states in guide they can
Check your bill daily if drinking in bar, best to not sign for things to room as you will fing additional item on bill that you have not eaten or consumed
Hotel carpets are badly stained with water, probably why lighting is so poor in hotel corridors to try hide the dirt
Hotel gives more priority to Casino and Night Club and are nt bothered in Residents.
There are better cheaper cleaner places to stay that will give better servive than this over rated non clean and rip off hotel
