Lodging can make or break any trip, even if you only spend a couple of hours each day there. Your accommodation is a place to unwind and recharge for the next busy day ahead, so here are some the best places to stay during a trip to Saransk.

Admiral Hotel

Independent Hotel

Admiral Hotel

This nice and quiet hotel is a bit outside of the city centre but still within walking distance from most of the city’s attractions. An indoor pool, fitness centre, and spa are at the guests’ disposal should they find themselves with a bit of time on a busy trip. A buffet breakfast is included in the room price.


Independent Hotel

For an upscale place to stay directly in the city centre, try Meridian. This elegant hotel is just a short walk from the important attractions, and it’s the perfect place to treat yourself.

Hostel Shpinat


Those travelling on a budget should check out Hostel Shpinat. It’s the perfect option for an affordable hotel in a great location. It’s just a bit off the beaten track, which makes for a relaxing and authentically local experience—the best of both worlds.


Independent Hotel

Victoria, which is located in an Olympic Center, is a treat for fitness fans. The hotel features a large gym, a swimming pool, and a sauna. It’s outside of the city centre, but the sacrifice is worth making.


Independent Hotel

Saransk is one of the city’s best-known and most central hotels. It is extremely well-located, reasonably priced, and a great base to have while staying in the city.

Park Hotel

Independent Hotel

Park Hotel has a great location, and the reasonable rate even includes the breakfast buffet. The restaurant is built around a grill, and the building looks a little bit like a castle.

Severnyi Zamok

Independent Hotel

Severnyi Zamok is a cosy and quiet hotel a little away from the city centre. It is ideal for travelers looking for a bit of rest after busy days of sightseeing, as well as families with children. As it is in a residential district of Saransk, guests get a unique window into the everyday lives of the locals.

It's the personal contact, the personal experiences. I love meeting people from all over the world... I really like getting to know everyone and feeling like I'm traveling with a group of friends.


I have so many places on my list, but I would really lobe to go to Africa. I consider myself an “adventure girl” and Africa feels like the ULTIMATE adventure!
