Thanks a heap for the link, Luca ^

I just booked two nights in Berlin. Atleast that's what I think I did , given my non-existent knowledge of Italian.

BTW, does this promo work only for the 6 city locations in the link or are other European hotels possible...

cheers
AJ

The link is http://email.ichotelsgroup.com/cgi-b...QQ0I3U0GN6R0An

The offer is valid for any European location except the UK and Ireland, not only the ones listed. But not all hotels seem to participate in this promotion.

My guess is, not knowing much Italian or German, that 95% of the prices shown are based on standard rates, or similar - so not great deal if used to prepaid rates - however Brussels Europa only ever seems to have standard rates anyways, at min, of 60 euros, throughout the year - so a genuine bargain I've blagged there for the upcoming May(day) Bank Holiday weekend.

Interested to know if anyone finds similar genuine half price offers (ie. Lisbon's prepaid rates are I believe about 48euros at times).

Worrying that cancellation would incur a 100% charge, yet there is an enormous 'cancel resrvation' button at the bottom of my reservation - must remember not to view it on my laptop, which has a habit of clicking on links when not meant to.

To make a reservation in English:

Click on the link above
Do a reservation search
On the bottom of the search results page, click on the 'Über InterContinental Hotels Group' link
Click the Reservation Desk link at the top of the Corporate Information page that comes up
You should now be able to make a reservation in English with 'Exclusive 2 for 1' in the room rate selection.

It's definitely a good deal. ^
For the IC Berlin for my dates the best prepaid rate was € 107 per night, and with this deal I booked € 128 for two nights!

I went to the Italian link above, then to the US site (I was still logged in) and was able to book the promotion (in English) for a Monday-Wednesday at the IC Ceylan in Istanbul...

Please note that in the German version, the sentence after the single * says "For booking this offer, you receive NO Priority Club Rewards points !"

In the English version, no such rule, BUT the rate is pre-paid & non-refundable!:

Hmm. I booked a German hotel using the Italian link and then got the English email today. So who'll guess what happens next?

FlyerTalk Rocks!

I was cruising around trying to decide where to stay for a reasonable amount of money in Paris this weekend, and I found this thread.

2-1 300 euro at the Intercontinental on the Rue de Castiglione

I have never stayed at an Intercontinental before, I will report back!

Thanks guys.
