I've stayed at Ulaanbaatar hotel on two separate trips to Mongolia. The first trip was in 2000. At that time Ulaanbaatar Hotel was one of the nicest in the capital. It is old and constructed during Soviet rule of Mongolia. During my recent stay in early May, I booked the hotel for two reasons: 1) I had been there before... More

We have stayed here twice this month and each room had easily fixed maintenance matters that apparently are beyond the competence of whoever is in charge of such things. Wallpaper ripped, bathroom door doesn't close and a skirting board trying to escape from the wall, plus tired carpets were our lot. But it's not a bad place with all the... More

The hotel selection based upon location (located right beside Sukhbaatar Square) was quite reasonable. Everything else remembers my 1990`s visits of the region. The front office staff was old fashioned but fair, service in the lobby bar slow and with minimum interest. The price is comparatively low but I find the hotel as a missed opportunity.

As someone who has been visiting Mongolia since 1991 -- when this was the most prestigious hotel in town -- I find it quite depressing to see how little they have done to make the hotel reflect the huge changes that have occurred in Mongolia since then. Two exceptions; there is good wifi in the rooms, and breakfast is not... More

I went to Mongolia to attend a conference, and decided to stay here. The hotel isn't big, but it is very clean, has very accommodating staff (even during e-mail exchanges before the trip,) and has an unbeatable location (located right beside Sukhbaatar Square.) The prices of the rooms were quite cheap for a "5-star" hotel, as compared to other newly-built... More

Though this hotel is quite old I think they've done a good job making it comfortable. The rooms are huge with great views of the city. They are also very clean. The staff is friendly, helpful and kind.

I've stayed at this hotel on two occasions. The first was with my father, visiting from the USA in August 2014, and the second was in September of 2015 on my own. The rooms were very sterile and far less than you would expect of a hotel in Ulaanbaatar for more than $100 per night. The included breakfast was nothing... More

The UB Hotel has been around a long time, and sure looks and feels like it is from a different era. That being said, I enjoyed my stay there. The breakfast buffet is fantastic, the rooms were nothing fancy but well kept and the bed comfortable. Oddly, only the bathroom was newly upgraded, while the rest of the room seemed... More

I saw a few negative reports on rooms' poor maintenance, but in my case, there was absolutely nothing like that - the room was renovated, small yet cosy and had all the facilities you need. Breakfast buffet was a bit limited, and kitchen staff were slow in replenishing it - other than that, no negative feedback. And the location makes... More

The hotel location is great. That is it ! The ulaanbaatar hotel has nothing of a 5 star hotel. The rooms are antiquated and the beds really small. The prices are outrageous for that kind of service. They even forgot to wake us up for our early flight.
