Inter-Continental, also known as Inter-Con, is a five-star hotel located in Karte Parwan, west of Kabul, Afghanistan. It is considered foreign. It was built in 1969 near Bagh Bala. This hotel has 200 rooms, a swimming pool, a sports club, a tennis playground, clean space with natural views, two restaurants, a coffee shop, and six halls for holding formal and informal gatherings for people.
The Intercontinental Hotel was built on April 8, 1967, in cooperation with the Intercontinental Hotel network by the English company Taylor Woodrow Construction Company, and on September 9, 1969, it was opened and put into operation by the honorable Zahir Shah. After Russia’s military intervention in Afghanistan, Intercontinental Hotels Global privileges have been taken back from the Kabul Intercontinental Hotel.
During the civil war in the 1990s, the hotel was damaged by paramilitary forces. In 1996, only 85 of the 200 rooms were habitable due to the vulnerability of the civil war. This was while Western journalists were widely used during the US attacks on Afghanistan in 2001, because this hotel was the only big hotel in the capital at that time. Later, the hotel was renovated again, and all the services and rooms of the Intercontinental Hotel were equipped with the equipment and facilities that a five-star hotel would have.
From 2005 to 2007, the fifth floor of the hotel was converted into offices by a company called Senlis Council.
All the employees of this support group from Europe, which later became the International Council Security Development (ICSD), lived in this hotel.
The 2018 attack on the Intercontinental Hotel caused huge financial losses to the hotel, and foreign departments, including the UN-USAID-GIZ departments, and other reputable foreign agencies, avoided sending guests and holding their programs in the Intercontinental Hotel, the Marketing Directorate of the Hotel Barceló said. Unfortunately, they have been contacted and asked to arrange programs in the hotel, but unfortunately, their answer is negative for now, but they have this opinion in relation to this: “If the security of the Intercontinental Hotel is surveyed by one of the reliable and reliable security companies, and through them, the security system of the hotel will be designed, after implementing their ideas, the security certificate for the hotel will be given by the security company, and as a result, the Intercontinental Hotel will be at the top of the priority list of foreign authorities. The hotel’s revenue is predicted as follows:
