Here is our video review and commentary on this duplex suite:
300 m2 is quite the space! Those two terraces are massive. The terrace by the bedroom feels underused though, with all that empty space with no furniture.
At 30,000 points per night, this InterContinental is one of the hidden gems on IHG network. Regular rooms sell from 250€ and up, while a presidential duplex suite sells north of 550€ if booked in advance. Probably a good place to ask for a cash upgrade on a points booking!
