Chose this hotel as I am an elite ihg member. Not a great choice. In residential area no quick access to metro with little around apart from a great little coffee shop(Taia) down a street running away from the front of entrance of the intercontinental. Taia's breakfast was 6€ a godsend when after the hotel tried to charge us 72€...

The best part of this hotel is the breakfast the worst, its location. In my numerous travels abroad to historical cities, I have generally preferred hotels which are centrally located and within walking distance of monuments/sights. This one is definitely not like one of those. Taxi or public transport is needed to go anywhere. Metro is not closeby. So cab...
