The hotel choices in Brest seemed limited and we were really pleased to find something with more charm than a chain hotel. The room we stayed in was a very good size with a large bathroom, fridge, tv and comfy bed. Aircon and heating also in the room. The reception served drinks from a fridge and the key for the room doubled up as a church key which was very helpful. Breakfast was a lot of food for two people and incredibly good value, £3 each. Great location and really friendly staff. Book and you won’t be disappointed
The hotel Bug is very conveniently located opposite the main bus station and the train station and is a 5-10 min walk to the main shopping street of the town and a 45-minute stroll from the fortress. The hotel is in the midst of some pretty major modernisations which seem to have been going on for some time. Most rooms are recently renovated and the public areas are in the midst of a huge reconstruction programme (there is now a brand-new shiny glass lift for example). Room was spacious, spotlessly clean and had a fridge, tv, air con and some basic toiletries as well as free WiFi. Upon our arrival the receptionist was friendly and welcoming and spoke good English, as did the night man when we came back from our evening meal in town. Beers and other drinks are available from reception and were pretty reasonably priced. We opted for breakfast in the hotel and for around £3 each we were given coffee, porridge, 3 eggs, 3 sausages and a platter of bread, meat and cheese - EACH! which was far too much really but our lack of Russian and the breakfast lady's lack of English left us unable to decline! We had a great experience here and gave us a convenient and cheap flavour of Belarus.…
This is a gorgeous boutique hotel with an old world charm. It is located just off the beaten path but walking distance to the city centre. It is opposite a large park in Brest. Small breakfast room. No in room tea or coffee service. Rooms are clean and with modern bathroom facilities.
I was on a short trip for New Years Eve. Hotel is in soviet style, however is being renovated. They will probably add some more services like concierge etc. Very nice and professional staff. I really enjoyed my stay in Brest and Hotel Bug.
I’m surprised that the Bug is rated second best in Brest. I found it very average. Nice to have a fridge in the room but adding a kettle and some coffee and tea would have been a nice touch. The staff were polite but not much more than that. Breakfast though was surprisingly good; they don’t do the usual buffet breakfast but asked what you wanted. Through the language barrier we were offered porridge or scrambled eggs, and choose the latter. What came was a very tasty omelette with a frankfurter sausage, followed by Scotch pancakes with some kind of sweet preserve (possibly persimmon?). Not necessarily what I would have chosen, but tasty nonetheless.
