Visiting & Tips
The Songdowon Hotel built in the 1970’s is a basic hotel located in Wonsan.
The hotel is located in the seaside city of Wonsan on Korea’s east coast.
In the city, Songdowon Hotel is located by the seaside with rooms affording views of Wonsan harbour or the city and its surrounding hills.
It is located next door to the Dongmyong Hotel near Jandok Islet & Pier, and across the road from the Wonsan Seafood Restaurant and Kangwon Province Art Gallery.
As it is a basic hotel, it is a simple building with eleven floors finished in a classic retro North Korean combination of pastel green and white.
All rooms of the hotel have their own balconies.
Outside of the hotel is the car park area which you cannot leave, as with any other hotel in North Korea.
The retro style of the hotel continues on the inside with the hotel not seeing any renovations or updates since it was originally built so it is a bit tired in many places.
Rooms are comfortable and have two beds, television, heated floors, bathroom and balcony.
The hotel’s restaurant where dinner and breakfast is served is located on the second floor and famous for its unique hot stone BBQ where you will cook you meats on a searing hot stone.
The hotel is equipped with the following facilities;
Hot water is limited here, your local guides will confirm times it will be available on the spot.
The hotel is equipped with two elevators, but they aren’t always in operation at the same time, are slow and have a strange habit of not always opening their doors level with the floor.
