We did not stay at the hotel. We walked through the hotel grounds to the restaurant. We enjoyed a traditional Royal Korean Lunch "pangsanggi" There was an option to try Dog soup. Items are served in small bowls. Some were found to be very tasty and others not to everyone's palate. Great environment and tremendous experience.

It is really nice to stay there as you get a feeling of how it was in the ancient days. The rest is as everything is in north Korea - not great. The 'bed' is a mattress on the floor. The food is unbelievable bad and that was it.

This is the hotel used for tourist accommodation in old Korean capital. Traditional rooms are located at houses arranged as courtyards next to stream going through the hotel grounds. Some of the houses have been recently renovated. First room I got was in quite a poor shape. There was a bed with mosquito net, closet, small table, fridge and bathroom that was probably original from 80s. Luckily air conditioning was not working and I got moved to one of those renovated rooms. This one was much smaller and had in traditional was mattress on floor. There was a small table and tiny closet. Also the bathroom looked new, like I was the first one to use it. Dinner and breakfast were offered at dining room in main building and those were ok. Hotel grounds allow you to walk around a bit and the city itself is just outside of the walls. Of course you need your guide to accompany when strolling at streets. Overall this is a nice change to bit business style hotel at Pyongyang.

Travelling in the DPRK requires to adjust your standards. This hotel is no exception but you will find a very special place, nicely decorated garden and very basic accommodation! But the charm is the uniqueness of the place in the heart of Kaesong. Food is basic but sitting on the floor at a 30cm high table makes it a nice experience.

Based on the feedback we had read (Lonely Planet) we had high expectations but we were very disappointed. However we assume this is the only hotel available for visitors to the DMZ. The room is small and dark and the bathroom is in desperate need of renovation. Diner is good and served at low tabels while seated at cushions. Electricity is only available at certain hours and you need to check with reception in advance when hot water is available to shower (during our stay only from 20.30-21.30). Be aware not to get electrocuted while showering due to the open electrical wiring in the bathroom. Breakfast is very, very simple but served with a smile.
