Vintage plate 2018

Koryo Hotel is the most beautiful hotel in the whole country! It is the third largest establishment in the country, after Ryugyong Hotel (which is still not open), and Yanggakdo hotel. It consists of two towers of 45 floors, of a height of 143 meters, connected by a footbridge. Built in 1985 under close supervision of Kim Il-Sung, the hotel was constructed to "showcase the glory and power of North Korea."

The extravagance of the hotel is illustrated by its entrance, composed of a dragon mouth made of jade with a width of 9 meters. It leads to the entrance hall which is decorated with a mosaic of symbols of North Korean culture. The tiles of the mosaic are made of precious metals and gems, and covered by a thin layer of glass which is renewed twice a year in order to preserve its brilliance.

The hotel also includes a shop, a gym, a swimming pool, a revolving restaurant which is located on the 45th floor, a circular bar on the 44th floor and two cinemas (one of 200 seats and the other of 70 seats). In the hotel there is also a billiard room on the second floor and a casino in the basement, where you can play Blackjack, Roulette and slot machines. The casino’s staff mainly includes Chinese employees. Other services are available in the hotel, such as a beauty parlour, a barber, a shoe-repair shop, a pinball room, a bookshop, a photography studio, meeting rooms, tennis and badminton courts, a swimming pool, a sauna, a massage and a small clinic.
