After years of construction, North Korea’s famous hotel will be “partially” open to the public, said Reto Wittwer, CEO of Kempinski AG. By the middle of next year, the hotel will be operational — with shops, offices, restaurants, ballrooms, and 150 guest rooms.

Mr. Wittwer first saw pictures of Ryugyong Hotel when a Beijing-based travel agency released photos this past September.

According to Wittwer, Cairo-based Orascom Telecom is currently giving out funds for the completion of Ryugyong Hotel.
