This place classifies itself as a hotel, which I guess technically it is. You know a place is bad when your taxi cab driver goes to the room to drop off your luggage and looks at you to ask, "Are you sure you want to stay here?" The fact that this place is even listed in Lonely Planet is beyond me. We wanted a cheapy hotel because we just needed a place to shower up and store our luggage before leaving at 4 a.m. to go to the airport. We arrived in UB around 1 p.m so we knew we would not be hanging out at the hotel for that long. I've stayed in many places over the years. Of all types and this is the WORST place I've every stayed in. Lonely Planet says that the hotel has been remodeled. Bullsh*t. Oh, sorry, they did have brand new white crown molding but what's the point when the rest of the place is a dump. It was $35 U.S. a night. I'm sure you might be thinking.. "What do you expect for $35 a night?" However, I've stayed in cheaper places than that were cleaner with showers that aren't freezing. Awful. Shame on Lonely Planet. I usually have photos of every hotel I stay in but unfortunately, I do not for this place. You'll have to take my word for it. Just a photo of the building.
None. Okay, maybe the location is okay. We asked the desk person to order us a cab for a 4 a.m. pick up which did happen.
About 500 m from Strings and the White House hotel. A small 12 room hotel with excellent restaurant. You will be amazed about the quality of the food. And size. European style. Very friendly staff. They do not speak much English but that appeared to be no problem te me. Ask for Jason, one of the staff members if you have need for an English speaking staffmember. They will get him on the phone for you. The hotel is newly build just before the credit crunch and the rooms are really nice and tidy. Even minibar is at normal bar prices, which are too low, I think.
Gana's is a great place to stay - on the edge of the Gandan ger district of UB, but only a short walk to the centre, it has a few double rooms and dorms ($5 / 7000togruk per bed), but the most popular place to stay is in one of the five gers on the roof! There is one private ger (1 double and two single beds) which can be rented for $20, or dorm beds in the other gers at $6 (8000 togruk).
Breakfast of bread, jam and tea or coffee is included, and there is free internet.
It's a great place to hang out and meet fellow travellers over a beer or two!
Odd name but I guess it's owned by a South Korean as they have hotels with names like this over there. Anyway, I stayed here for about 6 nights after my 10-day Mongolian tour and I liked it very much. My room came with a double-bed, TV, fridge, 2 armchairs, 2 tables and phone and was nice, well decorated and clean. The bathroom was very big and more like a wet-room kinda thing with a shower in one corner and again was nice and clean. The staff were friendly and helped out with a few things. Breakfast was fairly simple and consisted of bread, cold meats, cheese, jam, biscuits, tea and coffee. My room was US$34 and double rooms are US$36. It's located just off Baga Toyruu where it meets Sambuu Street.
A 20 minutes walk from the station you will find Gana's Guest House (follow the road to Gandantegchinlen Khiid).
In the guesthouse you can stay in your own room with toilet/shower or stay in a ger (traditional tent). We stayed in a double room - nice and clean, but very, very, very cold in the night.
Very friendly staff and they can also help you to arrange tours to the national parks.
When we arrived to UB by Transsiberian train, Mr Kim from UB Guesthouse picked-up me and my wife, we went to his UB Guesthouse but it was really unclean, noisy and too big with very small rooms,so we moved to many other hostels and guesthouses for several days, and finally we moved to Temuujin's Guesthouse and Tours,we found it very very clean, very centrally located, very nice breakfast, very cheap organized tours and very good hospitality...
Showers and toilets looks very modern Ifeels like you are in five stars hotel)
Also, you must ask for their very good DVD collections (western, Mongolian and travel related movies)
They have 4 apartment-block guesthouses and two hotels in the center of Ulaanbaatar city.
We stayed 3 days at "Golden Gobi" Guesthouse, 3 days at "Idre's Guesthouse", 2 days at "UB Guesthouse", but they are not good if you are looking for clean and safe places. After several days in prison-like places we are finally moved to "Temuujin's Guesthouse".
Now we are very happy, from our windows we can see Peace Avenue, we have tasty and free breakfasts every morning cooked by Temuujin's wife Nimaa, every evening we are dining together with them, and we feel more lucky.

Nice simple meals in one of many camps around Gorkhi Terelj National park.
Good beds, not too cold during the night, sleeping in GER is MUST. No sounds at all (excl. sounds of nature)
Simple, not very far from city center, clean, ok breakfast, friendly and pleasant staff. Ex-Soviet building but so-mongolian.
the owner is reliable speaks good english and he can organize tours for any place in mongolia.we had few probs with the guide of our tour, nothing serious just lack of communication, and once we talked to the owner about that he prooved to be very understandable and professional and even if not asked he compensated us.very professional, highly recommended.
prices for a twin/double room is about average , we paid 12usd a night.I think the dorms where about 4 or 5 usd pp.very clean and central.
We stayed in Bold's Guesthouse in UB and he was an absolute star. He picked us up from the train station in his beat-up Soviet ambulance, drove us to the best markets to buy wheels of cheese, and sorted out all the things we needed and any questions we had at no cost beyond the peanuts we paid for accommodation.
Centrally located in an old, Soviet-era apartment block (cows roaming around children's swings).
Residents were good, kind people. I wrote a postcard home and forgot it somewhere in the area. Almost one year later, the postcard arrived at my parent's house...someone had picked it up, put postage on and sent it....11 months after I'd left the country!!
We did the trans mOngolia , and have been staying in Homestays in Russia. Coming in Hotel Bisrhelt was a nice, what a great surprise. The people where friendly and the room huge. The single beds, where almost double beds, the bathrooom was a proper one with a hair dryer and good facilities. The breakfst a bit chaotic, but we where thre just after the new year, but the people where courteuos.
It is central on Libertay Square. If you want they will picj yopu up at the station. There is a travel agent in the Hotel that can arrange trips for you.
This accommodation is run by Shuren Travel and can also be booked through Monkey Business in Beijing. A little pricey for the budget traveller, but if the country for only a day or two well worth while for the experience of staying in a well facilitated and comfortable Ger Camp.
The accommodation is in a traditional Mongolian Ger, for 2 or 4 people per Ger. There is a restaurant located at the camp which does excellent food, all meals are usually included in the package.
In Mongolia we enjoyed our stays in the gers. The interiors of these spacious tents are very colourful. In the ger are four beds and they are very comfortable to sleep and live in. The outer and innermost material of the ger is canvas with a layer of felt sandwiched in between. If it's cold there is a stove in the middle for heating and if it's hot the sides of the ger can be rolled up.
Near the area of the Manshir Monastery we stayed in a ger camp on a beautiful spot surrounded by mountains.
The camp is near a ugly restaurant (in the form of a church-mosque) in complete disharmony with its environment, developed by Japanese and constructed by Chinese, opposite a golf-course in development.
The view from the roof of the tower of the restaurant is fabulous, not seeing the building itself. Anyway we enjoyed also the wodka and beer in the warm panorama bar.
One of the better hotels in Ulaanbaatar with nice rooms, and it is conveniently located near to the Zaisan Memorial, Bogd Khan Winter Palace, stadium where the Naadam Festival is held. It is also short walking distance from the city centre, including the famous Sukhbataar Square.
