When it comes to staying in Pyongyang, hotel options are limited. Just a handful of hotels are available for tourists and the Yanggakdo is one of them.
The Yanggakdo International Hotel is the largest operating hotel in North Korea, offering about 1000 rooms in 47 storeys. With a height of 170 meters, it is the second largest building of the country, after the Ryugyong Hotel (unfinished and with no foreseeable opening date). The Yanggakdo was built between 1986 and 1992 by a French developer, and opened to the public in 1995.
