“Good hotel for short stopover”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 November 2011

I stayed for two nights on a business trip, arriving late on the first evening, leaving early morning.
As the hotel was booked for me, I cannot say too much about that process. I don't know if a non-smoker's room was an offered option but I ended up with not my preference - a smoker's room. While the lady at reception was apologetic, she was unable to move me due to guest levels, although promised to check if it was possible for the second night. She did ask me the following afternoon if I had been moved so I guess the request was left for someone else to deal with but nobody contacted me on the subject. To be fair, neither did I press the issue as the expected smell of smoke in the room did not turn out to be a major issue.
The room was basic business hotel type of average condition but ok for my short stay. Plus point of free wifi. Not sure if the tv had foreign channels as only flicked through a few
Breakfast was also standard fare and, as leaving before the restaurant opened on departure day I was given a basic, but filling, packed lunch.
I did not use any other facilities but it seems to be a popular location for conferences.
Nothing really stood out either way for me, hence the average rating. I would have no hesitation to use again the hotel again for a short business trip but might look elsewhere if staying longer than a couple of nights.

Hotel Volna is a perfectly serviceable place to stay: clean, reasonable, very helpful staff -- and the building has some historic interest, too, as an example of Soviet modernist architecture from the 1930s (don't worry, though: it has been renovated, although in the 1990s). The restaurant is decent Russian fare. Overall only one complaint: it is a l-o-o-o-n-g way from the interesting parts of the city. It's closer (and, I think, may have once been part of) the monumental GAZ auto factory complex. If you are going to N-N to see the old Kremlin and the center (and by all means, do!), it's a 30 minute drive from the Volna

Very good service and nice stay in this hotel! We got perfect cooperation by all the staff of the hotel. Specially housekeeping staff is good, they are performing their duties in a systematic manner. All departments are very kind, professional and always helpful.
Good luck & Keep it up!

Comfortable and modern hotel with pleasant English speaking staff. Rooms are nice and very clean with fairly standard for a business hotel including comfortable bed, bathroom, satelite TV, mini-bar, Wi-Fi and so on. Buffet breakfast is worth trying. They offer a wide choice of conference facilities (equipped conference halls with restaurant service).
Food in restaurant and bars is excellent especially if you are fond of russian cuisine. In the evening it was so pleasant to relax in a cozy piano-bar drinking local bear and watching live football matches on a wide screen.
I have previously stayed at the hotel as it a perfect place for business travellers.

...so it has to be pretty good was my thought. The hotel is very modern and suited more to business than leisure travel. The restaurant is good and stays open very late which is great. Bed was comfortable and the bathroom was very nice. It is not located in the heart of the city rather it is about a 20 minute ride to the city center which is where all the sites and things tourist want to do are located so that might be a drawback if not travelling on business. Staff was very nice which made for a very pleasant stay. I tried to set a wake up call using the instructions on the phone but it did not work the first day so the second day I called the front desk for a wake up call.
