Rent a Flat
There are not so many hotel choices in Novosibirsk and prices are quite high. I needed a detailed search and founded out there are couple of companies renting "flats" throught the city. This is very typical "Chinese" way as the flats are capable of many people and have their own living room, kitchen and bathroom. The prices are reasonable but do not exoect so much to get. Against the lost of the key, 500 rubles is deposited. Money is returned when you deliver the key back.
Unique Quality: A Flat in an apartment building, own its on. Walking distance to trains station, subway and grocery.
Directions: Get out of the train staion, turn left and walk through Lenina Street, on your left, you will see the main office of UYUT. You will register here and get your key.
Hard to avoid and hard to love
Well, this is a VERY soviet style hotel. It is really big and bulky and has been undergoing some renovation over the last years (some floors of the hotel) - but it is not very beautiful. Actually I will be honest and say that it is ugly.
However it was not really expensive when I stayed there and it served the purpose; I needed a clean bed for a few nights.
Unique Quality: If you favour western quality hotels pick the suites. The standard rooms are rare and ugly representatives of the soviet times.
A little bit better
I was staying there several times. Quite good hotel.
This can be recommed.

Directions: The Sibir Hotel Novosibirsk is situated in the heart of Novosibirsk city near the major business and theatre area and is easy to access from all main routes. The hotel is close to main cultural attractions of the city.
Development of Siberia by...
Development of Siberia by Russians and Cossacks: a bit of history
In the middle of 13th century Siberia was seized by Tartar-Mongols. Siberia was included into the Golden Horde, and later into Siberia and Tyumen Khanates. The main reasons for Russians to start moving to the east was need in raw materials, including metals, as well as finalization of relationship with Siberia Khanate.
The first Russians to penetrate into Siberia (16th century, during Ivan’s the Terrible rule) were northern voivodes (heads of local troops) and Cossacks (Ermak). In 17th century Russian geographers Dezhnev and Popov found way through Siberia to the Okhotskoye sea, which fact started new era in development of eastern lands.
This area was always used for remote prisons; before the communist revolution for 'ostrogs', and later for GULAG camps. But camps and oil are not the only attractions of Siberia. The region has a highly developed industry, including refinery, machinery, metals, timber, chemicals. What is also important, Siberian universities are widely recognized worldwide, and the most famous of them are The Novosibirsk State University (http://www.nsu.ru/english/), and The Tomsk State University. They offer the hightest level of education and have strongest departments of scientific research in various fields.
First cities were also founded by Cossacks and Russians in the 16th century. In the picture you see old city of Tyumen (photo of the end of 19th century). Below is the way Tyumen looks now.
