Hello:) There is few airbnb places in the city center. The hotels might be quite expensive. Once you get out from the airport, you will find a bus station. It isn't written really big but there will be two types of buses. One is a mini bus(I forgot the number sorry:() and the other one is a big bus. Both of them cost 4 Belarusian Rubles. You need to pay this is cash so prepare! It will take you to the Central Bus Station(which is in the city center) It also makes few stops in between, so if you want to get off in the middle you can, but I think your accommodation will be in the city center, so just take it till the end!

If you get the cabs at the entrance of airport, they will ask for 70-80 BYN. Normal taxi fare is around 30-40. I suggest you to get Uber or Yandex Taxi. There is also a bus to train station. It is around 4-5 Rubles. There are many hotels at the center. You should choose according to your budget. Newest hotels are Marriott and Doubletree Hilton. However, Crowne Plaza, Minsk Hotel, President and Europe may have better locations. Renting apartment is also very common here. If you are on budget, renting apartment can be an option.
