As the headline says you don't really have a choice if you are going to stay at the Yanggakdo or not, as you'll stay wherever the tour makes you, but this place really isn't all that bad.
The beds are comfortable, the bathroom is big with a western style toilet, and the t.v. has bbc world if that's what you're after. My room was on the 25th floor so there is a great view from the room and the windows open so you'll be able to take a clear picture if you'd like.
The hotel itself has many amenities, a post office, casino, karaoke club, 3 or 4 restaurants, gift shops, and a place to buy toiletries.
The real benefit here is that because it is on an island you will be allowed outside the hotel and on the grounds without being under the watchful eye of guides. A small amount of freedom, but it is greatly appreciated.
