Ulaanbaatar is a city with a long name and a lot to offer. Perched in a river valley, it’s surrounded by a lush and exquisite landscape. Its pride and joy is the Bogd Khan Uul National Park, which is most often a tourist’s first stop. Nature’s wonders abound here and are visible in the form of fascinating hot springs and beautiful rock formations.
Ulaanbaatar is a destination of stark contrasts. On one hand, you can experience a traditional lifestyle that’s indigenous to Mongolia and, on the other hand, just a short distance away, the city center’s towering buildings reveal how modernity has encroached into this historic town. However, evidence of its rich past is still seen in the Soviet-era buildings and historic statues that pepper the city center. Come and spend time in Ulaanbaatar by staying in one of the Airbnb vacation rentals on our list below. Scroll down to learn more.
Make your trip to Ulaanbaatar more memorable in this centrally located modern apartment. It’s nestled in the heart of the city, which means you can easily explore what the capital of Mongolia is all about. Tourist draws like Sukhbaatar Square and the Government Palace, for instance, can easily be reached on foot. Restaurants, clubs, coffee shops, shopping malls, and other commercial establishments are nearby as well.
The apartment features a modern design with large windows that not only give off a relaxing vibe but offer a beautiful view of the cityscape as well. Amenities like cable HDTV with Netflix, Wi-Fi, heating and cooling, and a modern kitchen provides comfort and convenience. It’s also big enough to comfortably sleep up to four people.

This rental is a traditional yurt, known locally as a “ger”. Similar in design to the accommodation in listing number one, this particular ger is found near the railway station and is easily accessible by bus from the airport. The simplicity of this rental makes it all the more alluring, presenting a typical Mongolian experience.
Inside, the rental is stripped of most of the bells and whistles of a hotel room but it more than makes up for this with its warmth and coziness. Your host will prepare your meals every day and will go as far as offering recommendations on things to do in town.
