if you go to Nizhny Novgorod please do not hesitate to book a room in Grand Oka Hotel. it is so clean ,the breakfast is rich,the bars are great .Also ,the rooms are very neat and super clean. Will definitely come with my famliy again and again
Stayed here for the World Cup game. Very comfortable beds, extensive mini bar, fantastic breakfast with great choice, lively bar in the basement, easy for taxi drivers to locate. A very nice hotel with helpful reception staff who spoke English
The hotel is someway south of the main sites of Nizhny Novgorod. Too far to walk except for the most hardy ramblers but there is a fast and frequent bus service from near the hotel and taxis are cheap (if using a taxi app.). Reception is bright, modern and shiny and check-in was efficient. Rooms are older and smaller but adequate. Definitely need air-conditioning is staying during the hot summer months and there are blackout blinds for the windows which are very useful as it gets light very early. In the basement is an excellent sports bar with good beer and food and many giant tv screens. Perfect for watching other football matches on. Breakfast was reasonable and better than expected based on some of the reviews. We felt the hotel was quite expensive for the facilities but this was during the World Cup and booked through a travel company. I'm sure it's much better value at other times. Ideally the hotel would be closer to the town but it's ok apart from that.…
The hotel is very good.. Staff are very helpful.. Rooms are of good size and cleaned every other day.. Facilities are very good A good size bar downstairs with a bowling alley The only thing is the area miles from town but Taxis are cheap enough..
Please note that this hotel is actually two very different hotels in one. One of them is in the old Soviet building were you get renovated rooms of a much lesser standard than in the newly built section. My rating regards the modern part. The reception is friendly by Russian standards and overall service in the newly built section is good. The hotel has a good gym and a proper 25 m swimming pool with a sauna. The spa next to the reception has a wide range of treatments and very good massage! The Bali type massage was excellent as was the regular Russian sports massage. We he location is far off and you will either have to go to the center by cab (15-20 min depending on traffic) or your own car. The immediate surroundings and views are not that appealing. The breakfast is a bit basic. …
Close to airport and to Nizny city center. Professional welcome in a large hotel style lobby and reception desk. Nice and clean all-white entrance and lobby. Clean rooms, well furnished and foreseen with all you need and expect in an internationally oriented business hotel. Only minus: the breakfast is worthless (as in many Russian hotels unfortunately). No orange juice, no good bread (dry stuff) and actually not worth spending your time, let be money, in that place.
This is a huge and nice hotel located not far from city center, easily accessible by public transport or taxi or own car. Hotel staff is good. Hotel has a restaurant as well. It is possible to find tasty food, but not so economic price. There is free internet access via wi-fi in rooms. It is possible to find comfortable and free car park area. Next to hotel there is nice bar.
Hotel is quite far from the city centre. There are two areas within the hotel- 3* where I stayed and 4*. 3 star looks basicaly like nice dorm. Just two beds, one table and basic bathroom. Enough for a short trip but definitely not luxurious. Good food.
We arrived at Nizny Novgorod after an excellent hotel in Yekaterinburg.We walked into a well appointed Reception which was lovely and cool on a hot 34degree day. We were quickly booked in and given our keys. We went up in the small lifts, only room for two people plus cases and found a small rather tatty and not particularly clean room. Others in the group had even worse rooms. After complaints from our guide we were moved to a slightly better room which had been renovated. The room was very warm and had no air con or fan. We have never stayed in a hotel which purports to be 3or4 star and where temperatures regularly are in the thirties that did not have a fan as a minimum. Even worse the curtains were almost transparent and bright sunlight streamed through from 4.00 am. We had a very hot night and poor sleep. We decided to eat in in the evening. The quality of the meal was fine but the service unbelievably slow. It took 25 minutes to get our first drinks and it was the most expensive beer of the three weeks we have been travelling 50% more than the night before and 75% more than we have paid tonight in a far better establishment. Breakfast was fine but this is the first hotel I have ever reviewed that I would not recommend.…
There are two hotels in Oka: Business (3-star) and Premium (4-star). I've Stayed in Premium during 2-nights business trip to Nizhniy and was fully satisfied with the hotel: excellent and large rooms, excellent bathroom and good places to eat and rest: restaurant with awesome, panoramic view, jazz cafe with live music and other places like sport gym, swimming pool, billiard, bowling etc. among the disadvantages is a high price and the fact that the hotel is far from centre.
