Pothonggang Hotel

The Pothonggang Hotel is a deluxe hotel with 9 floors and 161 rooms located in a quiet, green and relaxing surrounding in Pyongyang by the Pothong River.  It was built in 1973 and renovated in 1998. We mainly use this hotel for exclusive private tours in North Korea.

The hotel is located by the Pothong River (Gang means river in Korean) in the Phyongchon District, very close to the Central District of Pyongyang. Close by you will find the Ice Rink, the Changgwang Health Complex, the Pyongyang Indoor Stadium as well as the Chongryu Restaurant and the Ragwon Department Store. Please note that we can arrange visits to stores in North Korea as well as casual walks in cities whether you are going with groups (our groups tend to be small) or on a private trip to the DPRK.

The hotel also has a post office from which you can send mail and postcards to friends and family back home, which we are sure that they will love receiving.
