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.
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.

And I will certainly have a closer look at the Hotel Oktyabrskaya!
Also sincere thanks to Ludwig Chekhovtsov who wrote me in private.
Have a nice weekend,
