Hotel is located only a few minutes from the Kim Il Sung square and same distance from the river. It's not the best hotel in the city, but with a good price it will convince you :). Food in the restaurant is also good.

It reminded me hotels of Soviet era, just slightly refurbished. Room fares from $80. Due economy regime, it was cold in all places, temp not higher than +12C. The rooom was warmer with heated floor. No hot water from 24.00 till 06.00. Couple of blackouts per day - which is quite normal for the city. 5 TV channels including 2... More

I had two nights here in May. The rooms were just like any other two star hotel elsewhere. The beds were not soft but not too hard. The restaurant had a good range of dishes and the staff were attentive in spite of the language barrier. The view out the window at night was interesting. We were on business and... More

It is difficult to rate this hotel but if you can cope with the very hard beds and a breakfast that has little of what Europeans usually have for breakfast ,the hotel is nice. Staff are friendly and the room clean. My room had a modern flat screen tv with 5 channels including Al-Jazeera, RT a Russian channel, a Chinese... More

Beside the fact, that I like smaller hotels more, than larger ones, the... More

Not sure if there's any point in writing a review since we didn't have any option but to stay here. Was on a Chinese tour (much cheaper than a Westerner tour) to DPRK... was supposed to be staying at the Yanggakdo Hotel, but due to high volume of tourists, we were pushed over to this hotel for the first night....

A cheap option in Pyongyang. Seriously hard beds, limited breakfast options in inclusive B&B rate, but otherwise acceptable. It is, however, fairly close to propaganda loud-speakers which can disturb periodically. Friendly staff. Benefits from easy access to the river, where foreigners can walk freely.

With beds as hard as a rock, with towels as big as postage stamps and excellent service are nervous about this hotel is the life experience. The dining room is light blue and pink, dotted with waiters and delicious Korean and Chinese food. The hotel has "spa", hairdresser, three bars and a shop. But most of all, this faltwy tower...
