This past July we spent 16 days in Mongolia, staying in 4 different ger camps and at the CK hotel on 4 different occasions. This was a group tour, so we had the chance to stay in 4 different CK rooms and get feedback from 20 other people. Firstly, most of the facts presented in the negative reviews may have some accuracy BUT, all of our rooms had safes and mini-bars and all of the staff spoke English adequately and tried to be helpful. The Chinese restaurant (Mr. Wang's) was fine. That said, like Mongolia, the hotel is far from perfect. We never had a room where everything was finished. There were always loose wires poking out from some wall or other and there was always cheap vinyl breaking off of some piece of furniture. The AC did not seem to work, but the weather was not too hot in July. The breakfast buffet was OK at best (it had to meet both Eastern and Western tastes) and, true, there was no brewed coffee in sight. I'd note that we never got brewed coffee on our trip. Tea is what people drink in Asia.
Nonetheless, we were very happy to be back to the CK after touring the ger camps. The rooms were 2-room suites and large. The lobby wi-fi worked. The beds were comfortable. The showers were fine. The toilets flushed. For us, the laundry service was very quick. People were nice. Access to the Sky Department Store was a plus. In terms of location, it's a bit of a walk (~1 mile) to Parliament and ~1.5 miles to the State Department Store. However we found the location to be quiet. No noisy disco. True, it's not Paris. It really is Mongolia and I think the CK needs to be judged by that standard. Certainly it's good compared to the other places we stayed, including Three Camel. How it compares to other "upscale" UB hotels is not something on which I could comment.
