This will most likely be your largest outlay while in North Korea. Only “approved tourist hotels” are allowed to stay, and you must pay in hard money. Discounts may be available if you request lower-class accommodations, travel in a group, or visit during the low season (November to March). Depending on these variables, the cost of your trip, which includes lodging, all tourist activities, and meals, will vary from USD70 to USD200 each day.
Before you depart, you usually pay your tour operator for all of your meals, accommodation, and Beijing–Pyongyang transportation. At peak season, a week in a four-star hotel will cost between €1,300 and €1,600, depending on your tour operator, but may cost as little as €800.
