ISIS has re-opened the Ninawa International Hotel in Mosul.
Isis has purportedly opened its own luxury hotel in Iraq’s second city Mosul for members of the extremist group to stay in while visiting.
The property is well-regarded on TripAdvisor.
Cleaning staff are washing windows, as well as painting, decorating and gardening. The black flag of the Islamic State was raised in the forecourt of the hotel and coloured balloons were released in celebration.
The 262-room hotel is thought to be the first accommodation of its type in the self-proclaimed caliphate and will also cater for weddings.
In ISIS style, the building’s elaborate exterior decorations have all been taken down, the ballrooms boarded up and the bars now alcohol-free.
No word on what it takes to get upgraded to a view of the Tigris river.
