No one’s sure why the Ryugyong Hotel earned the nickname the “Hotel of Doom” but it might be because of its menacing appearance (it could pass an an evil villain’s fortress) or because the hotel’s goals were so grand, the project was doomed to fail. Construction began in 1987 and nearly three decades later, the hotel still hasn’t opened.
Work has been on a start-stop schedule thanks to global tensions with North Korea and it doesn’t look like the hotel will open any time soon.
