Stayed for 3 nights as part of group tour. Hotel is centrally located. Near train station. Twin towers. Room is old but comfortable and clean. Bed is a little hard but still ok for me. View of Juche Tower from my room. TV has Chinese Channels, Al Jazeera which were great. Bathroom simple. Small bath towel. Hotel has a revolving restaurant but can’t see much as windows are not clean and the city at night is not brightly lit up either. Food is average. Breakfast served on a restaurant on third floor. Not much selection. Ask if coffee is included for your room first. For our group, only first cup is included (free). Gift shop at corner of lobby. Can pay in RMB, US$ or Euro. Sells basic necessities, dry food as well as some simple souvenirs (eg fridge magnet). Prices comparable to souvenir shops in the places we visited. Book/CD shop on second floor. There is a Swimming pool and karaoke at the basement but I didn’t check them out. Itinerary is quite packed and we didn’t have time (or energy). When arriving, suggest you carry your own luggage to the room. Otherwise you may have to wait a long time as the staff goes room by room to deliver your bags (and they expect tip).

Not much I can add to other reviews. The room was really dated the bathroom seemed straight out of a caravan which moved when walled in. The lighting was interesting where the only use of the electronic key switch turned off a small light in the hall and as we later found out the telephone. The living are had no light at all however I found the bed to be very comfortable which is far more important. The lobby area of the hotel is rather cool decor wise and some excellent facilities in terms of bars, billiards tables, swimming pool and karaoke. Also $1.50 for a large beer made the evenings tolerable Probably never going to go back however I recommend this hotel as experience to anyone

The Hotel Koryo in the center of the city was a bit old. The service at the breakfast buffet and in the evening in the bar were, restrained but always friendly. The offer was plentiful and the prices very cheap. Those looking for luxury should stay at home or accept things as they are. The friendliness and cleanliness is better than in many other hotels outside the DPRK. The hotel exudes a certain "DDR 70 years of charm" with the many plastic flowers and the partly worn-out furniture. I enjoy my stay and my time without internet an international news papers

We went To north korea during Easter. The weather was good. When we first arrived to the hotel, the reception looks great. Evening view of the hotel looks beautiful. The room is not and there is no way you can adjust the temperature other than opening the door. The windows in the room are sealed and it cannot be opened. Breakfast is a non event. Not a lot you can eat. Bring your own coffee satchet. The hotel has shops and bookstore. The bookstore close at 8pm. The shop close at 10pm. Some of the stuff you buy here is actually cheaper than other touristy sites. Next to the hotel, there is the stamp museum where u can buy postcard.

We arrived in Pyongyang airport and were met by our 2 guides and were booked into this grand hotel in the centre. We choose to come as a couple and not in a group. This was to give us more freedom of movement and to have the luxury of a guide each, plus driver. The hotel is interesting in its design and facilities and have funky bathrooms, which looked as if they were recommissioned from a cruise ship. The hotel has many facilities, dining, restaurants and shops. The food is good and plentiful, with a good choice at the buffet breakfast. The basement has lockers for secure items and saloons for hair and beauty treatments, even a in house tailor. Good place to stay and get to see the sights from.
