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 !

Even south korea would have to admit that this tremendous monument to the supreme leader is a spectacle to behold. I arrived to a completely empty hotel, so the service was amazingly fast. The secret: any imperfection in work is treated with execution. An absolutely brilliant strategy! I was given a free tour of the city, but remember. Don't ask about the "Super happy fun camps" or your trip may be unexpectedly cut short! As for food, only the best smog filled air is served with a side of gravel deep fried in the oily sweat of the dying children. When my stay was coming to a close, i did't want to leave. But sadly, i had to return to the democratic pigs who had nothing to give me but a capitalist lifestyle. Thank you so much oh supreme leader for showing me your love and compassion during such a wonderful trip!

I arrived at the hotel at 3:00 AM (NK time of course) with nobody there to greet me. I finally found the door after walking around the pyramid a few times, and there was a man there to greet me. I was a little afraid at first due to the large assault rifle he was carrying, but it was quickly evident that he was simply protecting the people inside. I think my nose was running, because the man put a tissue up to it, but I don't remember much after that. I think I blacked out from exhaustion. I woke up in bed. Well, sort of. I was strapped down to ensure I wouldn't fall out of bed at night. How nice of them! They told me "최고 지도자 김정은 은 공개 방송 을 통해 한 시간 안에 당신의 공개 처형 을 요구한다!" (Pronounced "choego jidoja gimjeong-eun eun gong-gae bangsong eul tonghae han sigan an-e dangsin-ui gong-gae cheohyeong eul yoguhanda!") Which I believe roughly translates to "Your meal is ready, breakfast will be in one hour on the house. Enjoy your stay!" But my Korean is a little rusty. Later I was taken to a dimly lit room with a strange looking table. It must have been breakfast time. A man walked in to service me and I asked him "What's on the menu?" He must have been grumpy about something because he said "미국 쓰레기 다이!" Which means "Don't talk to me!" He pointed a large gun at my face, which made me scared. I asked him what was wrong, but all he did was shake his head. Several cameras and microphones were brought into the room, and a burlap sack was placed over my head. Someone said "You dumb Americans have infiltrated us! You will pay!" I think what he meant to say was "You Americans are so silly. Don't forget to pay for your hotel room at the front office." Everyone in the room started laughing (probably cause I looked like a scarecrow with that burlap sack over my head.) After that I just remember waking up in an American War Hospital, with a man standing over me. He said "Those damn North Koreans have been liberated. After your failed execution, we went to war! You've been in a coma for 18 months but we never pulled the plug, no sir." I was shocked that my good friend Kim Jong Un would have me executed, but I was happy to be alive. The whole experience was an adventure, and I lost 54 pounds in the process. -"미국 쓰레기 다이!" in Korean directly translates to Garbage die USA, but in context was meant as "Die American scum!" You can Google Translate Korean if you want to know what the other one actually says.

I like the view but I couldn't open the window and it smelled like wet cement, And My mattressWas nothing but a bamboo Mat with the words "자본주의에 죽음을" On it. It was on almost everything I noticed. And the employees seemed a little nervous But were always smiling! I had a bagel for breakfast but come to find out it was supposed to be a Doughnut..And had 150 rubles a night you would think they would have more amenities! But my overall stay was okay. I just wish the hotel guest next door to me would've stopped screaming I hardly got any sleep!

None of these people have actually stayed at this hotel, as it's not actually open. Apparently all of them didn't bother to check that the hotel has effectively been completed, and does have windows on every single floor. Just more typical high-horsing from Westerners who think they're superior to the North Koreans because they have "democracy". Bullshit.

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

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 ^^
