There are places where history is saved in every stone.
Nowadays the former monastery of the bernadines is a comfortable hotel in the center of Minsk. Its original interior and special charm attracts tourists from different cities and countries. Our careful and attentive staff will be at your disposal.
There is no noise of the city due to elaborate engineer and architectural solutions. It is a good place to have rest before guided tours and business meetings.

Every room is equipped with a desktop, safe, mini-bar, air conditioner, satellite television, telephone. Rooms also have a private bathroom, hair dryer, towels. On the territory of the hotel there is free Wi-Fi.
So officially this is a three star hotel. In my view, it is more than that. The rooms are specious. At least in the historical part of the building. The room is modernized, especially bathrooms, but still have a feel of 17th century monastery living quarters. Heavy wood furniture, wooden window shutters, oak wooded mirror, etc. - all of makes your stay very memorable, even though I didn't spend too much time in the room due to the heavy business program. The hotel is situated in the heart of the historic centre of Minsk. It is very conveniently positioned if you have a spare hour or two to walk the street. Lastly, I don't know how to explain it, but I had an incredible sleep here (on of those 'sleep like a baby' moments). It is a very peaceful place.
If you are heading to Minsk, and you can afford some $ 80 – 90 / night, I don't see why choose anything else. Monastery Hotel is really a monastery! I mean, it's not a monastery, it's located in a monastery. A real former Bernardine monastery, 17th century – just imagine! Real thick stone walls, high ceilings, even the restaurant is located in a former refectory. The furniture was obviously ordered specially for the purpose, solid, real wood. The rooms are very spacious – I guess, twice the size of an ordinary hotel room. For my part, however, the location was the decisive factor – it is the closest to the theatre, as I made myself sort of theatre tour. But if you want the most central hotel in the city – here you are, it's literally two steps from the Freedom square and two central cathedrals – one Catholic, the other Orthodox.
The Manastyrski is a beautiful historical hotel, with all the modern comforts. It is a converted monastery. It's strikingly beautiful, warm and comfortable. The staff are very helpful (they do have English speaking staff as well) and it has the best wifi I have ever encountered in a hotel. The breakfast had many choices and was beautifully presented and clean. I highly recommend this hotel and the city of Minsk. We will be back again.
The hotel helped with our visa application, I emailed them and they sent a response with the appropriate paperwork within a few days. The hotel was easy to find being directly opposite the cathedral in the old town. It took around 15 minutes to walk from the train station. Reception was efficient and a good standard of English was spoken. We were very impressed with the hotel, really big room. Big bed. Very clean. Fast internet that you connect to in your room. Great location for exploring Minsk. We only had to get a metro once to the national library everything else we did on foot.
Excellent place to stay: best location, good value for money, spasious room, very clean, very good breakfast (really good comparing to some 5 star european hotels), helpful and courteous staff. Totally recommend this hotel, stayed there before and will stay again when in Minsk Besides its in the historical building and location, renovated former monastery quarters.
I have traveled to Minsk a dozen times in the past several years. This is the best hotel for the price in Minsk. I highly recommend it. Great location. Friendly, helpful staff. Clean, comfortable rooms. I will continue to travel to Minsk, and I will plan on staying here. This hotel is better than many, if not most, of the hotels where I stay when I travel domestically in the U.S. and where I pay twice the price.
