The President ticks most boxes for a business trip to Ufa for a foreigner. It is set within a large forested park with many footpaths and an outdoor restaurant, The Leto, within a short stroll of the hotel. The few from my room to the rear was across grassy woods and quite calming and very quiet. However, the bat sized mosquitos ruin any stroll or meal in the park or at Leto and I learned not to keep my window open after day one when I woke up with about 4 pints of blood missing.
There is a pool and sauna on the premises but I never sought them out.
The resident Scrooge Bar is a psychedelic hotch potch of pictures and random tall chairs and plastic squeaky butt chairs. It is better to eat in there than the Premier restaurant in the basement. There is an extensive buffet breakfast but the evening menu quality in general was disappointing, all the meat was tough in whatever I chose. If you're desperate though there is a McDonald's straight shot out of the hotel 5 minutes walk. Although take your translate App, as my request for a Big Mac Meal ended up being a Happy Meal with a plastic dinosaur :-)More
