The rooms themselves are quite simplistic. The hotel corridors, halls, bar, etc however have a more soviet retro touch matching the architectural style of the building.
Bright walls with different tones of green and brown, dark green carpets, wooden elevator frames and old clocks grandfather clocks give you the impression of being in a hotel in the soviet block in the 1970s.
There is a bar in the basement with an assort of both local and foreign drinks.

The hotel also has a billiards room.
Lunch - we usually have lunch here when going to Hamhung. A local dish is potato starch noodles. The restaurant was refurbished a few years ago.
They sell souvenirs and snacks at the lobby of the Sinsunhang Hotel. They will most likely not have change for large denomination bills here so please make sure that you bring change. When you stay at a hotel in Pyongyang, if they cannot give your change you will be handed a receipt and asked to come by the next day to collect your change. The problem with this hotel is that you will most likely either only stay one night or have lunch.
