Lonely Planet review
This 1985 orange-bronze structure is the preferred place to lodge UN functionaries and business people as well as some tour groups. Each of its twin towers has a revolving restaurant on top and its location is better than the Yanggakdo's, on the relative bustle of Changgwang St, a short walk from Pyongyang train station.
Our independent authors have visited Koryo Hotel and selected this as one of our recommended hotels in North Korea.
