Since April 1 2011, hotel Belarus was closed for renovation, scheduled to be completed for the World Cup Ice Hockey Championship in 2014.
For a long time there was a talk about how to demolish the old building of the hotel Belarus and in its place erect a modern 5 star hotel complex, that will meet all international standards, as well as local groundwater characteristics. But the hotel Belarus became for its existence the hallmark of our capital Minsk and unique architectural monument. With the support of the president was decided to leave the old building and remodel it into line with new international standards. It was planned to grow two floors, install a panoramic elevator, completely change the network engineering, to conduct large-scale renovation of rooms and ancillary facilities. The appearance of the hotel will also get a global change.
The restaurant «Panorama» on the 22nd floor, the cafe «the Belarusian cuisine», the cafe «Royal» will retain their names, but will change the interiors. As stated by the hotel management the level of service will be much higher.
