The key question is:

Are there demands for a hotel in Pyongyang? I can't imagine scores of poeple waiting to cue up for a 5 star suite in the heart of a closed country.

Makes no sense to me. Someone care to explain?

And the key answer, an answer given probably at least 200 times over the course of this thread, is NO.

We know why this hotel was built, it doesn't need to be said.

We know it doesn't make sense economically, or probably even mentally, but again, nothing needs to be said.

I think we all just need to appreciate the uniqueness of this building and be happy when it's finally finished.

Who says that this building is for hotel?

It was planned for hotel more than 20 years ago, but that was almost three decades ago. Perhaps the plan is changed, not all rooms are for hotels or perhaps no for hotel at all.

Will probably mixed use with hotel, residential and some office space. Perhaps a few restaurants and a theatre as well.

What makes you think there will be a theatre? Was that part of the original plan?

But yeah, mixed us is probably a good guess considering the size of the thing. Hotel, residential units, office space and a few restaurants.

At the moment there are 2 hotels where most tourist will (have to) stay. Both massive hotels, the Koryo hotel and the Yanggakdo hotel (I will stay here later this year). The last one is the most populair, because of the facilities (not much, but more then the other one) and it's on an island in pyongyang, the only place where you are allowed to walk alone outside. Both hotels are never fully occupied during the year, but during the Arirang massgames season (you tube it if you don't know what it is) lot of people travel to north korea. Even American people and south korean are allowed to travel to north korea, although with some restrictions, but most tourist are Chinese. So maybe during the massgames the capacity of ryugyong hotel is welcome, but I don't think so. I will be there during massgame period, so will try to figure whether the hotel is full or not.

It looks like a giant rocket sitting in the middle of random Asian city. Very strange building.

Go back through this thread and you'll probably find every known photo of the Ryugyong.
