Had a one night stay on a countrywide tour and I can honestly say that this hotel had the hardest bed !! My room otherwise was very warm and comfortable. Hot water in the bathroom and no probs with electricity. Had a good breakfast, impeccably served. A good base for visiting the International Friendship Exhibition and the Pohyon Buddhist Temple,...

Due to the not so good reviews I had low expectations. But I was surprised, that I had nothing to complain. Room was spacious, clean, comfy. The furniture was dated, but that does not matter. Small booksop. Nice bar, where I had a nice evening with my driver and guides. Food in restaurant (dinner, breakfast, lunch) was also good and... More

Interesting mural to greet you when you arrive. Room a little on the small side but the water was hot and the beer was cold which probably helped with the sleep that night. A number of bars and pool tables to fill in time after dinner. Food was average but ok.

If you happen to find yourself in Hyangsan and your tour operator promised "first class all the way" and you end up here then you've been misled. The only decent place to stay in this city is the Hyangsan Hotel, not this drab excuse for an inn. At the Chongchon I found hairs in my bed and hairs in my... More

A decent hotel with a rather cold lounge and a heated room, our room had a very nice view on the lake side, on entrance we were asked at what hour we want hot water and at the mentioned time we indeed had hot water, both diner and breakfast was enjoyable and the bar had good beer and a kind...

No choice of hotel but an interesting stay. Furniture from the 50's, very hard beds, moldy smell in the bathroom, tv does not work, dirty carpet. On the plus side: decent food was served, staff was very nice, view of the river with a patio on your room, and a cute gift store.

Guys you have to remember you are in a country that probably has no notion about hotel grading systems in the rest of the world or no notion about Westerners hotel expectations. All in all I found this to be a pretty charming hotel. It does the job for a one night stayover. The rooms were quite nice although had... More

The one and only "budget" option in the Myonhang area for tourists, the hotel is adequate enough, but the night I stayed there I was greeted by a bathub full of cold water and a sink full of bugs. The toilet didn't flush and there was no hot water, and the beds were hard as rocks. The room in general... More
