Well, this is an excellent place for a traveler who needs to stay overnight during the journey through Belarus. The hotel is typical of the Soviet era, but it is well maintained, clean and comfortable as far as possible. Rooms are spacious enough and equipped and secure parking is available for a reasonable surcharge. A very good impression on us did service personnel - receptionists and other hotel staff were very helpful and friendly. Hotel also provides a buffet breakfast - menu of course does not reach the quality of German hotels, but all offered meals were fresh and very tasty. Parking is hidden from the public eye, for finding may be necessary assistance from the security officer :) Hotel is located right in the city center near the station, our room on the eighth floor on the side facing the square was rather noisy in the morning.

Room tip: Rooms on the upper floors offer views of the city. Side facing the square is the noisier

Hotel is Soviet style multi-story building and in the city centre, to the train- and to the bus station 15 min by taxi or a 45 min walk. Rooms start around $ 50 (no AC, TV only Russian) and are quite good and very clean. It`s better to have a room to the backyard since the rooms facing the intersection are quite noisy. Breakfast is included and in the ground floor and quite Okay. You need to speak Russian there. It’s your best option for day-trips to Mir or Nesvish since the main hotel in Nesvish (the Bradt guy spells it Njasvish – whatsoever) is under reconstruction and there is only a very expensive small one inside the castle and no other accommodation.

Stayed at the Horizont for one night with a friend in October 2012. The hotel is a large block of concrete (9 floors, built in 1979), which sure looks austere but not necessarily badly maintained from the outside. The location right at the heart of Baranovichi (across the street from Lenin Square) is unbeatable and that's perhaps the hotel's main advantage. We got upgraded to a "superior" room at the front desk when the staff saw our "western" passports (to this day, we still wonder what a standard room would have looked like...). Overall, the staff, while not exceptional, was better than anticipated (it's a good idea to learn some Russian before going though) and not unfriendly as one could fear in such "Soviet"-style hotels. In a typical fashion for that part of the world, each floor has a "floor attendant" whose usefulness is questionable. Our superior room was very interesting: it looked as it came straight from 1979 without any alterations (other than perhaps the smoke detector). Everything seemed vintage, from the wallpaper to the heater to the TV to the fridge, not to mention the wooden floor, the bedside rugs and a very impressive chair that must date back from before the hotel construction. The beds were a bit on the basic side but they did their job of getting us a good sleep. The bathroom (WC + washbasin + shower) was definitely substandard and not very inviting (again, it did the job, with hot water in the shower and a working toilet flush). Although it was cold in Baranovichi during our stay, the room heating worked perfectly. The breakfast buffet was surprisingly good and varied, including a large choice of cooked Belarusian treats. However, the (massive) breakfast room was cold and uninviting, and could have done with a significant upgrade. As for other amenities, I understand that the breakfast room turns into a restaurant at other times of the day, while there's a very basic bar in the lobby, whose operating hours do not seem too generous. While we did not use them, I believe that tourist services (information, bookings, guides) are offered. All in all, we enjoyed our stay at the Horizont, probably more for the "Soviet", "retro" experience than anything else. Our basic needs of having a warm shower, sleeping and having a breakfast were satisfied. I can see how more demanding visitors could be disappointed though.
