Bike Mongolia has chosen Continental Hotel for your accommodation in Ulaanbaatar. It is a smart 3-star hotel situated only 10 minutes' walk from Genghis Khan Square in the city center. The hotel is facilitated with a business center, gym, and restaurant.

Meanwhile, during the tour, you will stay at ger camps. A "ger" is a portable dwelling structure traditionally used by the nomads in the steppes of Central Asia. These camps are all privately owned and staffed mainly by local people. Standards and services vary a lot which is the beauty of this kind of accommodation as no 2 ger camps are the same. Each ger has 2 to 4 beds and usually guests will share with the same friends as in the hotel. The ger camps are completed with a restaurant, showers, washing and toilet facilities, and electricity powered by a generator.
