Hotel Europe in Minsk to get 5-stars status next year

A commission from the Belarusian State Institute for Standards and Certification made in late June several recommendations to the hotel, but Hotel Europe has remained without a star status up to now. Ludmila Vokuts, the head of certification sector at the Institute, told the European Radio for Belarus that they were not yet invited for a final inspection, but she visited the hotel recently in order to check how the management improved on their recommendations.

Ludmila Vokuts is doubtful that Hotel Europe will be granted a certificate this year.

At the same time, at the official web site Hotel Europe positions itself as a five-star hotel, while receptionists try to convince our reporter that the hotel has already obtained a five-star status.

In December, a part of Hotel Princess will also be launched in the Belarusian capital. This hotels also pretends to become a five-star hotel.
