Lonely Planet review
Pyongyang’s other first-class hotel, this striking 1985 orange-bronze twin-towered structure is more commonly used for business travellers, journalists and NGO staff, although some tour groups stay here too. Each of its twin towers has a revolving restaurant on top, though only one of them is open as, in a spectacular failure of forethought, the other overlooks the highly secretive ‘forbidden city’. The rooms are quirky, with curious alcoves for sitting in, and small bathrooms, but it’s comfortable, clean and has several bars, restaurants and shops to occupy guests, although avoid the overpriced ground-floor coffee shop!
