Where to stay in Veliky Novgorod

Despite Veliky Novgorod's popularity as a tourist destination, it offers a somewhat limited selection of accommodations. If you want to stay in the center, choose from several mid-range hotels and a couple more luxurious options. Alternatively, explore the few hostels and guesthouses here, some of which are located in peaceful areas outside the city. Due to the limited options, be sure to reserve lodging ahead of time.
