Travel Blogs from Ulan Bator
Having read a lot about ulan Bator not being a particularly safe
place to be, especially in the dark (even the carriage attendant lady
did not let us out the train when crossing into Mongolia for our own
safety as it was dark!) we were a bit dubious to walk to our hostel
when we arrived at Ulan Bator …
We drove back to UB. Parted with our group and checked into a hostel next to a car repair shop. Our room had 2 kinds of pink flowery wallpaper. We walked around looking for a place to eat and finally settled on a sushi restaurant that one of the Aussies had recommended to us. It was surprisingly delicious, although we don't usually make it a habit …
We’ve spent a couple of days in Beijing relaxing, exploring the hutongs and discovering that it was impossible to get Mongolian currency anywhere. Mostly just waiting to catch the Mongolian train to take a 30 hour journey on the Trans-Siberian railway to Ulaan Bataar. This is something that Vinh and I …
... all you would need to build a ger.
These were days for relaxation and for catching up lost internet time. But these were also days for goodbyes, as our gang were to split up. Only five of us were to take the train to Beijing, with a sixth rejoining us there, and the rest of the group were on their merry way home. A night a the opera, in which an amazing showcase of Mongolian cultural traditions ...
... I had one fellow in a car shout something at me and at them and another fellow throw things at them from the cab of his truck.

How has this hotel rated in the past?
We stayed here for a few nights on two separate occasions.
The rooms are OK. Spacious, large beds and a private bathroom. Though they are very basic - shower pressure is pretty poor, curtains are almost non-existant, and the walls are quite thin (which is terrible if you have noisy neighbours). There is wifi available, but unfortunately there isn't reception in all rooms.
The main pro for this hotel is the manager who is really friendly and helpful. He helped book taxis for us and held our bags when we went away on a tour.
