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.

Handy Tip

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.
