I had friends coming to Ufa from another country. The first thing I thought about is booking a hotel for them. But it turned out to be too costly - a hotel room in a good hotel with wi-fi and air conditioner for two people is around 7 800 (260$) rubals per night!
So, I decided to rent an apartment. A decent one room apartment costed 1800 rubals (60$) per night, what was a big difference considering the fact that they stayed in Ufa for 5 days.
If you are coming to Ufa, renting the apartment is the better way to do it. When choosing it you should consider the restaurants, shops, bus/tram stops etc.
I live in Ufa and can help accommodating guests and help with transfer, translation(which you will definitely need as we do not have signs in English), guide or providing information about Ufa, places to see, places to go etc.
The Good = Agidel is very conveniently located on the main street of Ufa. Across the street is a Gostiniy Dvor shopping center and a theater. Several cafes and restaurants are nearby. There is an elevator! Toiletries (even toothbrushes) are included, as well as a small mini-bar. The rooms have fridges. An electric tea kettle can be borrowed from the dezhurnaya (housekeeper). The rooms are warm (almost too warm). Hotel staff are friendly and very accommodating. The housekeeping staff cleans the rooms, refreshes the toiletries, and gives clean towls daily.
The Less Than Good = There is a small fee for registering foreigners. The lighting in the rooms is rather dim, with everything emanating from one light bulb. A breakfast buffet is included but it is of lame quality. The hotel offers “Eurostyle” rooms and “Soviet” rooms, however, the “Eurostyle” rooms actually did not differ from the “Soviet” rooms in any significant way, except price. The free wi-fi ranges from glacially slow to non-existant (luckily there is good wi-fi at the Gostiniy Dvor across the street). They say that there is a sauna, but when I was there, it was out of order.
It is conveniently located in the center of town.
The best choice if you are new in town.
Located in downtown, and convenient for bus and tram.
Very close to shopping center, government complex, Theater for Opera and Ballet, University,.....all within walking distance
Very economic choice. However, the room is quite small, and the building looks quite old.
The main problem: No english you can use here.
It is in the northern part of the city center.
There is a park(October Revolution Park?) with the Great Lenin Status.
On the other side of the park, there is a Theatre for Act Performance, which I highly recommend.
Very cheap and good experience for me even though I do not understand what they are saying......^^*
There are also a bowling center. But that's about it. For other activities, you need to take a bus to get around.
Convenient to take a bus or a tram.
I like the breakfast here.
Typical Russian type.
