Before coming here, having read the previous reviews, I was actually quite worried about staying here, but my client booked it for me so I had no choice. I should not have worried. The Bashkortostan is a very nice hotel. My room was excellent, plenty of room, nice decor, extremely clean and tidy. For a business trip it is ideal, right in the middle of Ufa.
My room was warm, but not too warm, it was quiet and everything worked. Yes, the way some things are done here is clearly 'Russian' and its look and feel, and if you hadn't been to russia before would feel very soviet, but by Russian standards it is very good.
The staff on reception for my visit all spoke good enough English to deal with every query I threw at them, not perfect but enough. They were very friendly, courteous and efficient.
Check in and out is slow (but that's the same everywhere in the Russian federation) but everything else works well.
I never ate in the restaurant, so can't comment on that, and breakfast was typically 'Russian' but, you're in deepest Bashkortostan, so this should be expected.
Overall, when I return to Ufa on business, I will definitely choose the Bashkortostan again.
