Staff at reception do the basics. Can't complain about them but certainly wouldn't praise them. Rooms are ok in size. Beds comfortable but rooms probably need a renovation. Bathroom is clean but showers need help urgently. Warm water at best and shower holder doesn't even hold the shower head so stuck hanging it over tge taps.

While the rooms were adequate the service at reception was dismal. A non-English speaking female staff member completely ignored me and walked away from the desk as she continued her private phone conversation. Very unprofessional. Customer service is still a unknown concept in many Russian tourist enterprises.

I have booked a room with additional bed in advance and confirmed that once again by phone few hour before arrival. Yet upon arrival there was no additional bed in a room. Being asked about that hotel's staff managed to deliver to our room some terrible beggar's trash from under a bridge. It took about 40 minutes. Being asked for... More

Stayed at this hotel as part of an organised tour so cannot comment on the value for money side, but the rooms were clean and reasonable size. Reception staff did not speak much English, luckily we had our Russian speaking tour leader otherwise this would have been a bit challenging. Location is great, walking distance to the main attractions.

this hotel is close to the old medieval 'kremlin' fort in this old town which, despite its long history, is hidden in soviet era appartmant blocks. the hotel is good, clean and efficient - but don't expect west european frills. The food is staple russian fare ( I'm here as part of a conference so maybe the food we get... More

This is a perfectly adequate hotel for a couple of days. It is clean and staff were friendly (although I was happy I speak Russian as some do not speak fluent English). It is reasonably close to the Kremlin and there are supermarkets nearby. Most people visit Novgorod for only a day or so and this hotel is, in my... More

You visit Novgorod for one reason and that is to visit the Kremlin - its a one night stay sort of town so you want, good value, a clean & comfy room , friendly staff, reasonable food and accessible to the sight that you have come to see. The Sadko Hotel has all these. Most people will either arrive overnight... More

An adequate hotel for a short stay in Veliky Novgorod. A little outside the centre, the hotel is situated 15 mins walk from the main sights and 30 mins walk from the train and bus stations. My room was clean but spartan. The double glazing reduced somewhat the street noise, but the thin curtains admitted a lot of light. Wifi... More

Staff at the hotel is friendly, though some basic Russian is needed to get along. The rooms are OK, but the beds could be way more comfortable. The area is rather quiet, but it can be rather noisy inside, especially as some guests do not bother to close their doors when they gather. Internet access was tricky at best. The... More
