Three Camel might be he best place to stay in all of Mongolia. The deluxe gers have their own toilets and sinks; the common shower area is clean, although hot water is sometimes an issue.

The bar and deck are lovely viewing areas of the expansive Gobi, don't miss the every changing sky.

The restaurant is fine, and you can watch the cooks through a window from the porch. The staff is wonderful and interesting, most quite well educated.

The two downsides are its terrible exchange rate and the bikes ( this is really nice biking country and they should take advantage of this for their guests.

Room tip: If you can afford it, get a deluxe ger.

The best camp I've seen so far, just loved staying there. Gonna visit it again. Place to watch the sunset is absolutely divine, feels like you're the only person in the world. The only thing is don't forget to take a bottle of wine and some music with you. Location is just perfect and you easily can access to the other sights.

Standing in front of the yurt listening to the silence of the desert, or watching the night stars is a wonderful experience. The camp is small, and there are no domestic animal around, so it's probably the place in the Gobi that makes you realize the most that you are in the desert.
There is also a very nice viewpoint to watch the sunset.
Food is delicious, but a little bit light at lunch.
The yurt are clean and comfortable, but there are 2 small beds in the standard yurts, which is a bit annoying when travelling in couple.
Staff is doing their best to help, but sometimes that's not a lot.

I recently spent two nights at the Three Camels Lodge in the Gobi. The lodge also owns the great tour company Nomadic Expeditions (or vice versa). I had a great 1st night, but lousy 2nd. Most of the staff were excellent; however, others could care less and were borderline disrespectful. This was only ger camp on my 10-day trip that DID NOT have outlets in the ger for recharging. Their approach was two power strips, which were inadequate to handle all the guests. In the mornings, the power was not switched on, so it was impossible for charging at that time. I stayed in a deluxe get, which provided its own sink and toilet. For this property, the food was average. It was hard to image that this price place would serve pizza and soup for dinner. We had been warned that there was a large group arriving on day two. The staff was challenged and were unable to deliver consistent ands friendly service to all. I mentioned to the manager that I was disappointed in my stay. her reply was "I'm sorry" and no further interest in determining the problem or devising a solution. It suggested that the attitude that they had a captive audience. Don't try to use US dollar, because the exchange they honor is about 15% below the conventional rate. This is not a place I would recommend.

Room tip: Get a deluxe ger because of the adjoining bathroom with sink and toilet. Also, inform the staff of your intent to take a shower in the AM so that they have hot water available,

This was one of the best ger camps i stayed at during my recent visit to Mongolia.... we were prectically nomads with Nomads tour and expedition, staying each night in a different ger, during our stay of 11 days....

Three Camel lodge has 1 ger in the front which is their reception, post that they have 3 permanent structures namely the restaurant, the lounge area and the information center.... the washroom are underground, amazingly done interiors and warm ambiance....

the ger are large and spacious, the breakfast was the only place where we got freshly cooked meal, as in instantly made omelettes, etc.... the staff were well versed in English and extremely polite and cooperative....

it was a great experience staying at this lodge, and i surely recommend it to other travelers....
