As I said our choice was Deluxe Room King Bed.As the name suggests, the bed in our room was big.

Free internet was available for us. Of course I didn’t neglect to use it. The speed was acceptable and we didn’t have to log in every hour like in Prague. Maybe because I was in Prague only with Club status and here with Platinum?

As soon as the breakfast was finished, you can see, there were lot of free places. But not more than 15 minutes ago lounge was filled with people. It’s the perfect place for organizing the appointments with bunch of acquaintances sipping a drink or coffee.

Summary

Intercontinental Warsaw is the second hotel of Intercontinental Group I’ve been to. The former, in Prague, also blow my mind, but this in Warsaw even more. Maybe it’s a merit of the swimming pool, or bigger room? Maybe just 44 floors are better than 9? I absolutely don’t express any reservations to this hotel and I can definitely recommend it to anyone. Both demanding client and this lesser.
