spent a night inside a non-heated mongolian yurt, when the outside was close to 0degrees. it was freezing cold! had 5 layers on of clothes.
and yes not very clean.. they have provided a pillow and a blanket for each person but was very very dirty. its not for the faint of heart. you would actually see that it was not washed and the yurt itself was not maintained.
and also, there was only one lightbulb attached. bathroom was a 5-minute walk away.
well its uniquely mongolian. and such a thing that should not be missed out
Here is the improvised Yurt build with the help from the government. Most yurt nowadays are made of bricks(stones). Though they is still no air-conditioning in the summer and heater in the winter.. it is equiped with basic needs - toilet, tap water and electricity which runs on generators.
It was winter!!! Therefore we were not able to stay at the yurt. Hence we stayed at Zhao Jun hotel. Nice 3 star hotel and it is one of the top hotel in Hothot
They offer good exchange rates! Good bed and well kept hotel. I stayed in winter and the room are all kept warm for all guests. Good service and excellent food!
This hotel was the last one I stayed in the city of Eerduosi. It was in a bigger district called Dongsheng, so many more things to do here! It was a reasonalbly priced hotel around 180yuan for a double room, with clean bed linen and a a nice shower room with a bath, air con, water machine and tv receiving many channels. And to answer the question posed by VT, yes I would recommend this hotel to others! It was in the centre of town and this time, there were plenty of shops to go look at!
It had a karaoke place and a restaurant, maybe a sauna, Im not sure. A basic but comfy hotel.
In Erduosi City (Erduos in English), in an area called Dalateqi, a place where no-one stays up later than 9pm except for the youngsters in the internet cafes, is where you will find this place to stay! Anyone can stay there as far as I know though Im not a hundred percent sure WHY anyone would WANT to!!! Ok, ok, it's not THAT bad, Ive stayed in far worse, but I just got a bad impression from the word go! The most expensive room (the top suite!) where I stayed was only 180yuan, just over 13pounds, was hardly luxury! Just as we checked in the electricity and water got cut off! So we wandered around the dusty and dark streets to find somewhere to eat! Half an hour later they came back on again and we had some nice food in the hotel restaurant. The breakfast is back in the restaurant but canteen style, walking around with your silver dish picking out the food you want!
Nothing, that i know of!!!! But very central..of what Im not sure as there didnt seem to be any shops anywhere, just dusty streets adn many many trucks carrying rubble and building equipment! But very near to an internet cafe!!! An internet cafe in the desert! How funny!
Using online hotel services it can be extremely difficult to identify ANY hotels in Inner Mongolia.
I have a recently published Chinese guide book for the region which lists hotels across the region. I will provide information about specific hotels OUTSIDE Hohhot and Baotou if you are serious about visiting. Note that I have to translate Chinese text to provide this information.
4 star hotels in Hohhot and Baotou
3 star hotels available in Tongliao, Dongsheng/Erdos, Chifeng, Hulun Beir/Hailar, Ulanho, Xilingol
2 star hotels in Wuhai, Jining, Reshui, Jingpeng/Keqi, Daban, Bayan Ob, Alashan and wherever there are 3 star hotels.
These are the Accomidations that we aquired when we asked the bus to stop in the "Middle of Nowhere". Between "Here", and "There". When I asked the name of the place, so I could put it on this sight they simply told me in chinese, it's called, The Economic Development Zone. This is fairly common. 10 Yuan per person. About 1 Dollar.
Nothing special. The attraction is, it's in the middle of nowhere and very quiet. A bit cold though in the winter. It doesn't stay warm unless someone stays up all night to shovel coal, and no one does. But the blankets are heavy.
