Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. The Inter-Continental is a three star hotel located in the Karte Parwan section of the capital Kabul, in Afghanistan. It served as the nation's first international luxury hotel, one of the most visited by foreigners since its opening in 1969. The hotel has 200 rooms and is equipped with a swimming pool, a gym, and about four restaurants for dine in or room service. The hotel was assaulted by suicide bombers in June 2011, resulting in at least 21 deaths and severe fire damage to the hotel roof. Construction started on the hotel in April 1967 and was opened for business on 9 September 1969. While originally developed by the InterContinental Hotels Group and built by Taylor Woodrow construction from the United Kingdom, the Inter-Continental Hotel has had no association with InterContinental Hotels Group since the 1979 Soviet invasion of Afghanistan.
