With all of these millenials complaining about the dear leader's six star hotel, they forget that all of the problems they experience is due to opression from imperialist states in the west. This place has impeccable service and they will treat you very well. If you are rude to the staff, they will be rude right back to you. Remember...

Stayed business and will never be staying here again. Staff were very rude and tried to get me to promote their little fat ruler with the dodgy haircut Kim Jong Un, and because I refused they threatened to have me arrested! Food was mediocre and tasteless a bit like the decor in the rooms. Prices are expensive for poor quality...

On first look it appears this hotel is very outdated. And that this hotel being 6 stars should be at the top of its game.. I can tell you its not. This hotel is is as bad has it can get. Worse than butlins or Pontings. I wouldn't even allow my pets to stay here. You would be better off...

I was appalled and shocked but the shear deplorable condition of this place. I would rather sleep outside (not in the winter) for a country that is state run you would think they would want to please travelers. I also had a slew of vagrant and prostitutes at my door.

Our tour included 4 nights of staying in Ryanggang hotel, but after too many people complaining about no heating and no hot water, they moved us to a different nearby hotel! (Sosan hotel). When we arrived, we were told hot water will be available from 9pm to 11pm. Later we will find out that it was a lie, there was...

Horrible place, but I guess still on the upper side of NK hospitality. Beds are wooden plates with a cushion on it. Warm water in the morning and evening for an hour each. No fruits available, but thats for most of the country.

As you can read from the other reviews, this hotel is not one with Western standards. My bed did not have a mattress, it was a plank with some cushioning on top, which made it very hard. Soviet style, dark hallways. On the plus side, the breakfast was OK, and you can play pool and/or karaoke there (which is necessary...

Concrete, cold water showers, rock hard beds and power cuts are all to be expected at this Soviet retro hotel. Think of it as a form of military training and you'll love it. None of the light switches worked and what was that crazy broken enigma machine between the beds? Loved the DPRK and this hotel fitted in perfectly. Would...

Judged by western standards, this is not a good hotel. At all. However, I guess it is an average budget hotel by North Korean standards. As with many other North Korean hotels, electricity is unstable and there is only hot water during certain hours in the morning and in the evening. The breakfast is not good and the bar is...

Judging solely from it's name, I expected this hotel to be some kind of a partner of Ryanair, and after having stayed there, it wouldn't surprise me if it is! Going on one of the cheapest tours of the DPRK/North Korea, I guess we were destined to stay here, at the #8 of 8 hotels in Pyongyang. I didn't expect...
