Asked by Abrahams from UAE | Apr. 01, 2019 04:05Reply
Is there any recommended hotel near Dandong Station?
I plan to make a short day visit in Dandong and take train K27 the next day morning to Pyongyang. I prefer a hotel offering luggage storage service as I prefer to leave some of my luggage in Dondang while visiting Pyongyang. Thank you.

You may consider hotel like Hilton Garden Inn, Yalu River Hotel or Holiday Sunshine Business Hotel. They are all in walking distance from the railway station. Usually all hotels can offer luggage storage service, but if you will left them there for many days, there could be a fee charged. Not sure, how many it costs. If a few hours, it is for free.

There are two stations in fact, but the West station seems hardly used. All the rides from Beijing stop at Dandong station which is also the one you can use for the international trip to Pyongyang
