In this video a hotel in Belarus is shown with rooms for $4.10 per night. But the city is not mentioned. So, is this the cheapest hotel in Europe and where is it located?

  • Could "Where are the cheapest hotels in Europe located?" be a better title for the question? – Mikael Dúi Bolinder Sep 1 at 20:33

No, it is not the cheapest hotel in Europe.

There is no clear definition of the difference between e.g. hotels, hostels and bed & breakfasts, but it is not difficult to find cheaper hotel-like lodging on booking.com in other European countries. I just tried a search in Ukraine for an arbitrary date in October and found about 60 offers for €4 per night or less.

I would also assume that many of the cheaper offers are not even advertising on the better-known booking sites, since it is too expensive. In Ukraine, there is e.g. very cheap lodging available on most train and larger bus stations, but you will not be able to book these online.

The hotel shown in the video is Zhilkommunhoza in Krasnapolle. That was already answered in comments to the YouTube video.

  • What site did you search on for those offers? Did you search in English? – Spehro Pefhany Sep 1 at 21:14
  • @SpehroPefhany Are you asking about the offers I already stated that I found on booking.com. No, I did not use booking.com in English, but I don't think that they show search results depending on the user interface language. – Tor-Einar Jarnbjo Sep 2 at 5:56
  • I ask because I didn’t find that on booking.com, the cheapest listings were dorm beds which are hostel accommodation, not a hotel room. – Spehro Pefhany Sep 2 at 10:27

    @SpehroPefhany Most of the cheapest listings are just for a bed in a dormitory, but there are several options for a private room. For example a private room in Hostel №2 in Alchevsʼk is UAH 54 per night, or about USD 2.10. Even if this is a hostel, I would consider a private room 'hotel-like' enough to be comparable. – Tor-Einar Jarnbjo Sep 2 at 11:21

Not sure if the hotel is the cheapest in Europe, but I found one for $4.80 a night called the Old Road Apartments, link. (Not affiliated with the service). Or the cheapest in Belarus classified as a hotel is Райский сад for $4.99.
