I did not have high expectation in terms of hotels here, all the other hotels were nice surprise, but his was "meeting" my expectations. There is electricity but there was no running water, so you could not really bath (therefore you can not really swim in the sea, unless you want to be salty...). Due to the lack of water...

It was a wet and wild night the evening we arrived at Hamhung, so diving into the roaring sea was not an option. However, it was rather pleasant to stroll along the sand and get to grips with being on a North Korean beach. Strung out along a tree lined road is a series of huts consisting of 3-4 rooms...

When arriving in northkorea, we had very low expectations, but these were exceeded. However this was more to our expectations. The bathtub was filled with water for the toilet, and a barrel with a waterheater for washing. There were brief cold running water in the morning. The sky was wonderfull and a nice beach for a morning walk. Breakfast was...

Firstly I will add that the review by Chase Mollys is incorrect in that he refers to the brand new Majon Hotel (notice the similarity in names) down the road. That is a five star hotel with bowling alley, spa centre and is of course, much more expensive. I have been to this resort twice now (I had no say...

Had a one night stay on a country wide tour, in western terms I'd give the hotel at best a 2/3 star rating. Consisting of a main block which housed the restaurant, shop, check-in and main facilities - the sleeping blocks were separate and situated along the tree lined sea front. Restaurant in the main building was pretty good. Bedrooms...

This is a resort hotel which is set up to 5 star standards. It is a pity that there was temporarily no tap water and a bowl of water was supplied for washing and another for sluicing in the shower. This was probably more importantly used to flush the loo. A swim in the sea was suggested. The hotel is...

I stayed in Hamhung for one night in January 2014. I was supposed to stay at the Sinhungsan Hotel in the city center, but the guides recommand to stay at the Majon Beach Hotel, because there the heating and the hot water supply would be better. The room was simple, the heating mediocre, and the hot water system a bit...

The presence of a group of long-term resident Nepali and Filipino aid workers here having some R+R (and making their presence felt in the karaoke bar) suggests those in the know find this one of the best hotel choices in the area. So if you are allocated a room here - be thankful and enjoy ! Rooms in separate houses...

Aside from the fact that it is in the DPRK, Majon Bathing Resort is a very unusual (and distinctive) beachside resting place. Located outside Hamhung, a major industrial city, the resort is made up of several small beach-houses and a central complex with a restaurant, shop and telephone facilities. Rooms are quite austere, with simple beds and plain floors. The...
