Hi everyone,



I may have to go to Nizhny Novgorod by the end of this month for a couple of days.

Anyone familiar with the area there, i.e. are there any ProZ members living there and could s/he recommend a good hotel there?

Is the Volna hotel OK?

I\'ll have to go to Dzerzhinsk as well, but I think it\'s advisable to stay in N N. Correct?



There aren\'t too many Nizhny Novgorod hotels with websites available on the net (and none in Dzerzhinsk), hence my question(s).



Thanks in advance for some tips.

Hotels in NN Aug 9, 2002

Hello Evert! I don\'t live in NN right now, but I have been studying in college there and I think you will certainly find a good hotel there! If you arrive by plane, just make inquiries in the airport on the arrival. Of course, you are right: no good hotels could be found in Dzerzhinsk. BTW, there is a good website www.allhotels.ru (mostly in Russian), but they are \"enlarging their database\" at the moment: inactive for a while.

please say hi to my home town! hotel "Oktybrskaya" Aug 10, 2002

I was checking out the site before going to bed and now I am afraid I won\'t be able to sleep for some time! I spent most of my life in NIzhny Novgorod and miss it greatly. I only wish I could go too at least for a couple of days!

As for the hotels, \"Volna\" is nice but it is in the lower part of the city, across the bridge from downtown, in an industrial district. I think I would rather stay in the old town, near the Kremlin. I just searched on google because I couldn\'t remember the name of the hotel that I would recommend & it surely looks like there are 2 hotels in NN: Volna and Volzhsky Otkos!

Volna was originally built mostly for foreigners working at the auto plant \"GAZ\". That explains its location in a very unflattering industrial district.

I would like to recommend Hotel “Oktyabrskaya”

9а, Verkhne-Volzhskaya emb., Nizhny Novgorod, 603005 Phone 32-12-90

Fax 32-05-50 (area code is 8312)

It is a 2 minute walk from the Kremlin and it is right on the embankment.

Very close to Nizhny Novgorod Linguistic University where I studied!

I hope you have a great time and please share your impressions when you come back. Do not hesitate to contact me should you have any specific questions.
