“Surprisingly good contemporary hotel.”
Reviewed 27 May 2014 via mobile

Hotel is located on the quiet street in the modern part of the city, within two minutes walk from the subway, one stop from the central train station and two stops from historical center.

Hotel is not big, very clean, with friendly staff. Mid-sized rooms are very comfortable for the price. We have seen 4* hotels with much less attractive rooms. Windows in the rooms can not be opened, so if you are a smoker, you are caught in the room with your smoke. If you are not, ask for nonsmoking room.

There is a big restaurant in the basement with several sections: mixed food, Japanese, steak house and three lane bowling. Because of low ceiling in the bowling room it might a problem when a lot of smokers are playing.

Overall it's a good hotel worth of trying.

Our room on 2nd floor had great view of Fenway Park - room itself was spacious and impeccably clean. Bathroom with soaking tub also large and immaculate with lovely toiletries. Room very quiet - no traffic sounds from street or hallway. Staff was all very attentive, professional and courteous. Valet overnight parking pricey, but worth the peace of mind.
Thank you, Hotel Commonwealth for a most comfortable stay!

Room Tip: super neat and clean hotel other rooms also like very much

Reviewed 20 December 2012

Hotel Nikol is a quite average business hotel with a moderate level of comfort. The location is quite convenient - near the metro and several major production companies of Nizhny Novgorod. Yet far from the historic center, which is a disadvantage. The restaurant at the hotel is alright, although at as early as 11pm the waiters already try to usher you out as soon as possible to close the place. The rooms are very spacious, but not so convenient, because of some defects of the heating system - it is either extremely hot or rather cold in the room. Anyway for a short-term business travel the hotel is OK, but as a tourist I wouldn't go there.

I stayed there one night at the end of June. The hotel is a real gem for business travelers. It's very convenient located in one metro stop from train station connecting Nizhniy Novgorod with Moscow.

The second highlighting point is the staff of the hotel. Staff at reception desk and in restaurant is very friendly and always ready to help. I didn’t expect to see such well trained hotel staff there and was very positively surprised.

The room is very small, but clean and well equipped with flat-screen TV, free WiFi and other amenities.

The restaurant is average, but still OK to have a breakfast or business lunch.

All in all, a good hotel and now my choice for this city.

Nizhniy Novgorod is recovering from the communist regime and many of the buildings in this area are quite dilapidated and sad. The sight of this hotel in amongst all of this is very welcome and the service and facilities are as good as you would expect from any good western hotel. Everything worked well and the staff were friendly and efficient.
