Lonely Planet review

This striking 1985 twin-towered structure is commonly used for business travellers 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 ‘forbidden city’, home to the country's highly secretive political elite.

The rooms are quirky, with small bathrooms and curious alcoves for sitting in, but it’s comfortable, clean and has several bars, restaurants and shops to occupy guests. Avoid the overpriced ground-floor coffee shop.

Our independent authors have visited Koryo Hotel and selected this as one of our recommended hotels in North Korea.
