The new hotel Garni in the historic city centre is setting a new standard of comfort and service to the city’s three-star hotels. It is fully restored to recreate the original exterior of Machiz, a 19th century hotel that belonged to a merchant, Soutin. The name Garni is also historic and comes from one of Minsk hotels located nearby. The designers did their best to convey the spirit of the epoch: interior decoration, furniture made to order, old pictures of the city streets and stained glass windows with views of the city's sights all recreate the atmosphere of the late 19th century. Garni can boast of well-trained and qualified personnel who speak foreign languages, the latter still being uncommon for Minsk. It has a nice restaurant, a fully equipped business center, dry cleaning, Wi-Fi and other small pleasures of modern civilization. All taken in, Garni is a pleasant addition to Minsk’s hotels, one of the best options in terms of price/quality relationship.
