Rated 5 Star hotel in North Korea, as you can probably guess, it's not rated by any international standards. Not being an expert in hotels, but, if I were to "rate" it, I'd give it a 2 Star rating...
As you have probably heard, if you are reading this, what you can see and where you can go in the DPRK are very strict, it's not much better in this hotel. You do feel like you are being watched ALL THE TIME. Not saying you'll see or hear cameras focusing in your room, but once you have stepped out of your room, it feels like you have at least 2 pairs of eyes on you.
Basic hotel, coffee prices various A LOT, be sure to ask for the prices before paying to order anything.
There is a shop with surprising amount of items to buy, overpriced, of course, but if you are in a desperate need for any home comfort food/items, they have it there.
There is a bar next to the main entrance to the hotel, has 2 kinds of locally brewed beer. That was probably the highlight of the hotel!
There is a revolving restaurant on the 44th floor. Offered good view of the city, need to ask your guide to organise that, try to do it when there is day light.More
