We stayed in Ulan Baatuur hotel for several nights as part of a group tour.. We found the staff extremely friendly and helpful. The hotel is clean, well furnished, modest, and ideally situated for tourists. The breakfast was excellent and the staffs happy to give us a packed breakfast on two occasions when we were departing very early in the... More

I had two, omen night stays here at either end of a tour to western Mongolia. As others have said its an old style soviet Hotel, that doesn't seem to have changed much since it became Mongolia's "first five star hotel". Its no longer a five star hotel by western standards of course, but I enjoyed my stay here. Its... More

The UB Hotel was built in 1961. It seems as though they've not done a thing to it since, and that's not necessarily a bad thing We stayed in a deluxe room, although for the size and sitting room it should have been called a one bedroom suite. We'd read that the hotel had served Russian dignitaries during the Khrushchev... More

After 36 hours on the train from Beijing a hot shower and some good food were very necessary. The UB hotel provided both plus comfortable beds, good wifi and good breakfasts. It's a Soviet era and style hotel but very very well located just off the main square.

I stayed here for three nights while on tour in Mongolia. The "UB" is well located for tours and/or business aound the capital areas which are just a few blocks and a quick walk away. The breakfast is good, a buffet with the standard "Western" style breakfast foods available. The rooms are spacious, the a/c works well, the toilet and... More

This was the first hotel ever built in Mongolia apparently and it appears they haven't laid a finger to it since. If you sit quietly in your room and look closely at the carpets you can almost see and hear the plots being formed by chain smoking, vodka drinking communists of a bygone era. It was also apparently the first... More

It's been a long time since the Ulaanbaatar Hotel was the top place in town. The carpets have absorbed the smell of many cigarettes and room service meals eaten in the rooms. But it's still a comfortable and quiet place to stay. The staff are good. The rooms have what you need. The location is very good. And there's a... More

Stayed for almost two weeks on business. Hotel is very central and the State Department Store is a 15 min walk. Behind the hotel there is a supermarket where you can get water and other necessities. Rooms - I had an office room and a bedroom which were both extremely well heated. On the downside was the cleaning, the debris... More

The Ulaanbaatar Hotel has easily been the worst hotel experience of my life. The service and prices are appalling. It is clear from the start that they have no interest in pleasing you as a customer, and only see you as a walking cash machine. After demanding that I pay an outrageous price for what was advertised as a "complimentary... More
