Ordos Accommodation: Where to Stay in Ordos & Recommended Hotels

Ordos, which means "many palaces" in Mongolian, is one of the important cities in central Inner Mongolia. There are not only the Ordos Grassland with abundant green and nomadic customs, the Kubuqi Desert with rolling yellow sand and resonant melodies, and the Mausoleum of Genghis Khan full of historical vicissitudes, but also the Kangbashi District, which was once a “ghost town” but nowadays developed into the first 4A level scenic spot named after the urban landscape in China, is also worth a visit.

So where to stay in Ordos? There are all kinds of hotels for you to choose from in downtown areas in Ordos (Dongsheng District and Kangbashi District), from luxury hotels to economic hotels and hostels with good environment and living conditions. Besides, you may also find accommodation in and around some scenic areas such as Kubuqi Desert (Xiangshawan, Yemingsha, Qixing Lake...), Genghis Khan Mausoleum Tourist Area and Ordos Grassland, etc. Check more detailed information about the TOP places to stay in Ordos, and recommend hotels and hostels in each area to plan your Ordos tour in 2021.

Top 1: Dongsheng District - Old City Center with Hotels of All Levels

Although Dongsheng District (东胜区) is a little bit far from the scenic spots, it is the old downtown of Ordos with mature construction of urban infrastructure and facilities. Therefore, more than half of the tourists would choose to spend nights here. Dongsheng has a large number of hotels, rich in variety (from five-star high-end to 3-star budget) and cost-effective. There are two railway stations (Dongsheng West Railway Station, Dongsheng East Railway Station) and an important bus station in Dongsheng District. So public transport in Dongsheng District is more convenient than in Kangbashi District. Independent travelers can take tourist buses at Dongsheng Bus Station and reach the Genghis Khan Mausoleum Scenic Area directly.
