3–4 Semiramis InterContinental. This modern high-rise was, for many years, the center of the city's hotel life. Today it's got more vigorous competition but stands up well when compared with newer properties. Rooms are spacious, with full-length windows that make the most of the city views. All rooms have balconies. The clientele are predominantly businesspeople, and the crisp service and quality of the facilities reflect their needs.
