I have stayed at the Intercontinental in Berlin before – you can read about my Club Intercontinental stay here.
On this occasion as the stay was really for The Big Win promo from IHG I picked the cheapest room – a Superior Room. My guaranteed one room upgrade as an Intercontinental Ambassador member, the put me in a Deluxe room.
I had not stayed in this room type before and it was a bit of a revelation in terms of how nice it was.
Located in the older part of the property (west side), I was given a room about half way up the tower.
A large bath, shower, toilet and bidet, this area would have put several 5* properties to shame.
A nice hotel, with a good upgrade for Ambassador members, very close to the Zoo and about 10 minutes walk to KaDeWe. The 200 tourist bus stops outside so it’s a good location to stay for a first visit as you can easily get to most places in the city from here.
