Kaesong Folk Custom hotel is probably the best place you can stay during your trip to Kaesong DPRK - probably it's the only one for tourists at the same time.

It's not a hotel, it's more like errr... I don't know. But anyway, it's very special and unforgettable place. You can hear crickets singing all around the night in the darkness. The buildings are ancient, very beautiful! You will sleep on the floor, the mattress was quite okay but the pillow was hard like a rock. The room was also almost dark, I had my head torch in use. No water in the evening. In the morning there was boiling hot water running from the tap. Obviously, the water has been too hot already for some time because the bathtub had melted. Tables in the restaurant were also low model - a bit tricky to eat but no worries! There was a bar (cheap local beer) and a souvenier shop. Bridges, the river and gardens were beautiful.

So, I liked the place very much despite the lack of luxury.
