My husband and I stayed at iQ the last 4 nights of our 2 week honeymoon. My husband found this hotel from trip advisor and booked it because of the wonderful reviews. We liked the modern look in the lobby, self serve laundry option, breakfast-although it is an additional cost of 10 euro per person, the rooftop lounge area, and vending machines with snacks and beverages. The location is fine if you want to use public transportation, right next to the metro station and a 5/10 minute walk to an On and Off Sightseeing bus. There is also a grocery store around the corner that you can buy sodas/water, and snacks to keep in the mini fridge. There was one man at the front desk who was particularly helpful with maps and two great restaurants. This is not a particularly romantic, warm, friendly, or comfortable hotel. The bed was very uncomfortable, the shower/tub is very tall and can be difficult to get out of because the ledge is so high. The tv is extremely small and for a hotel that caters to people that speak English, we were shocked by having only 2 English stations--CNN and BBC. When my husband asked for a code for the business center computers, they explained you had to pay to use them-which is very strange if you offer a business center. Also, there are no ice buckets? With vending machines that serve ice, you'd think the hotel would offer a bucket. Instead you can use a cup from your bathroom or cups to buy from the vending machine. People were using trashcans instead. If you are looking for a self serve hotel then this is the place for you. If you are looking for a warm and friendly hotel with romantic qualities then this hotel is not for you.
