Lonely Planet review

The tallest building in the country, a mid-'90s tower on its own island right in the middle of Pyongyang, is where nearly all tour groups stay. The rooms are already showing their age, but they are spacious and comfortable, with great views over the city from most and hot water in the mornings and evenings.

As well as a pool and sauna, there are numerous restaurants, a microbrewery, a bowling alley, a billiards hall, a karaoke lounge, several shops and a casino. One advantage of the Yanggakdo is that you can wander around outside without your guides as the grounds are so large, something you aren’t able to do in other Pyongyang hotels.

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