Overall experience: Excellent

My stay in IC Phoenicia was good, but at Le Vendome it was just excellent. If you want pool or gym access, Le Vendome grants you access to the ones in IC Phoenicia. They work together but in my opnion the atmosphere is much better in Le Vendome. It is not as busy as Phoenicia. The complementary minibar was a nice extra and the balcony is great too, things that are not offered at IC Phoenicia!

This is the welcome drink.
Fruits were already in the room.
Some sweets as a small gift from the hotel.
The complementary minibar I will use for sure.

When I returned in the evening to the hotel, I was completely flabbergasted. There was a new pillow on the bed with my initials on it!

The room.
