Ambassador gifts in my room!
This year I stayed in IC Athens, IC Le Vendome and IC Phoenicia and so far this stay has been my favourite one! It’s the first time I get upgraded to club as an ambassador. A €20 worth of South-African wine was waiting for me in the room as a gift. The room is great, there’s a very spacious bathroom with shower and bathtub. In the evening, they knocked at my door for the turn down service. I experienced this for the first time in my life and wow, it feels awkward as I am not used to this.
Turn-down service… an attendant came to close my curtains, put my slippers next to the bed, refilled water, offered a chocolate and removed the decorative pillows from my bed. Room with a view on a beautiful day…
The whole building is impressive. You can see all the floors as the middle part of the hotel is open. The elevator has a glass wall on one side. During my stay I was treated exceptionally like a real VIP.

Fruits and South African wine in the evening in the club lounge… I also received some hot snacks but sorry, forgot to take pictures!
Even a service bell was available on the table during breakfast in case I needed more coffee, tea or anything else…!
