Inner Mongolia Hotels

Inner Mongolia is becoming more of a tourist destination with foreigners becoming more curious about the ‘off the beaten track’ areas of China. Although Inner Mongolia is the largest Chinese province, it is not hugely populated, making it a pleasant place to visit without the crowded spaces.

Be picky about the time of year you travel as Inner Mongolia tends to have long, cold winters with frequent blizzards. Summer on the other hand is quite pleasant and the season most come to visit.

The two main areas of tourist interest in Inner Mongolia is Hohhot and Baotou, so we have created a quick guide to help you begin your search for the best hotel to suit your needs.


The best pick in Inner Mongolia’s capital is the Holiday Inn right in the city’s centre. It is a great place to stay for a very reasonable price with basic rooms and great service. However for those with more money to burn there is the International branded Shangri la Hotel which you can never go wrong with though you will be paying the bigger price.


The Shenhua International Hotel is a popular choice found next to the city hall. From the airport it will take about thirty minutes to arrive at this hotel. When you arrive you will walk through a large lobby then led to you somewhat small rooms, however the excellent staff will make your stay that much better. Although it is not the flashest hotel, you tend to get what you pay for. However if you are looking for abit more luxury, again, the Shangri la Hotel is always an option for those willing to pay the extra price.

Before you go in and book your hotel, it is good to keep in mind the time of year you are travelling in as if it is around the Chinese New Year or Spring Festival, hotel availability will likely be scarce. Another thing to be sure to find out before you confirm your booking is to enquire about taxes. Many hotels will quote prices exclusive of taxes therefore ask what the final price is with all added extra costs so you get a true idea of the amount you will be paying.

Otherwise, Inner Mongolia will delight you with its cultural and historical value. Once you base yourself in one of its main cities you can go out and explore the rest of the province. A great idea is to pre organise day trips and tours through your travel agent so you can make the most out of your stay.
