It was an absolutely wonderful stay! I even got the top floor! I loved the view through my unfinished windows. And the cold, hard concrete floor was much better than those warm cushy capitalist ameri-pig beds. And the ground up grass and dog poop was delicious! Overall, it was a glorious stay. All hail Kim Jong-Un

I just comeback from there and it was fun. I had a chance to do base jumping flawlessly as my room doesn't have any windows. I'm fascinated how citizen here friendly and bow 3 times a day on a picture. Here the food are not provided as they encourage guest to do it yourself. Luckily I bring some instant noodle. Recommend for family trip !

Whilst ascending to the 1083 foot view of the Ryugyong Hotel in Pyongyang, N. Korea... a reflection upon the tenacity that it took to get into this pinnacle of human achievement and ingenuity. As the elevator rickets up and around the 105 floors of this structure, attention is drawn the obligatory worship being performed by the hotel staff. This was so cultural, having to perform all the tasks at home but in a hotel... the word genius springs to mind. This vacation to this hotel was made even greater by the fact that 4 trips had already been planned but were in fact cancelled before materializing... The 1st of these travesties occurred in 1989 due to "problems with building methods and materials." Which is vastly difficult to comprehend given the extensiveness of N. Korean reliability. The 2nd onslaught to this dream of visitation took place in 1992 because of some chrysanthemum-induced famine. The 3rd vicious blow was dealt when, in 2012 after having made plans to commemorate the 100 year anniversary of the birth of Kim II-sung, the man who does not poop's grandson, who also does not poop, decided to let the rest of the world learn this common knowledge. The 4th and final obstacle came in 2013 shortly after Kim jung-un decided to launch a satellite, because it is common knowledge that he does not poop either. The fifth time was met with success! So, finally, as one sits here, atop the 105th floor... there is no doubt where 2% of N. Korea's GDP has gone. 5 Stars ^^

I Loved it from beginning to end, when I popped my DVD smuggled into the country among other things i.e. The Interview they took the DVD and told me they were out of movies to watch so took it off me, the next thing I knew my head was whacked by a long stick, next thing i knew i was in a camp, where i was fed leaves for breakfast, dog for lunch & dead zombie for dinner, next thing I know I was starving and could see it, then i was on the North Korean TV News where some presenter was raving on about how bad america was. Then I ended up tied to a rocket and blasted off apparently into space next thing I know im falling into the pacfic ocean and US Marines rescued me for no reason. Later I found out i was trhe reason that North Koreas missile launch failed & I'm unhappy Kim Jong Un didnt sucedd in launching a rocket to the sun with prisoners on board.

Well I have to say that i loved it because while my family was being kill by the supreme leader. I was living the high life, (Literally) I was so glad that i got on the 100th floor. So when i got up there, i finnily found the pool! It was soooOOooo big and there were toy ships in it. (I think) Anyway it is the best hotel i been to.

Hey I'm agent DeCock from Pretoria. Oh my stay was incredible. After just getting parole I was fascinated by how much the world has changed in 20 years. They had their own gym with a back spreader, a rope up station and a waterboarding fountain. The pool was exquisite I can't believe they keep it at a -.1pH, it tingled my skin. The management wasn't that bad either. While I had to bow 3 times a day to every picture on the wall it was worth it to see the smiling faces of all those hotel staff wearing wires and national flag pins. I had the finest meat prepared by the prisoners in the death camps 100km away. I was a little reluctant to eat it due to North Korea's prominent recycling programme but I was won over. Original flavor. The only problem came when the camera monitor in my room showed the person in the next room changing. Apparently the 10 cameras and microphones and one way television they kept in each room had a malfunction. All in all, great trip.

I was traveling in the middle of no where and needed a place to sleep. All the other hotels were booked up for the holidays. They were so kind to take us in with no reservations. They even allowed us to stay on the top floor. Love the sunrise in the morning. I'll have to visit again one day.

Great hotel and view. I love the grey, lifeless concrete buildings everywhere. Their Supreme Leader has this great haircut where he buzzes the sides. I heard the pompadour is coming back in style, Justin Bieber and Brad Pitt have one too now! If you look off into the distance, you can see the labor camps. It's so exciting! Juche Communism at its best! They get so hungry, one of my tour guides said the children will fight over kernels of corn that the pigs have ate and pre-disposed of! Yummy! Their Supreme Leader must really care about them. Awe! The whole city of Pyongyang has this 1980's Cold War vibe. They are so uber there! It's like going back in time! They even have The Interview on Pay-Per-View! But unfortunately, it's on an 18" CRT television set running at 480i...
