A former five-star hotel in Mosul is opening under new management: the Islamic State group.

Arabic language media outlets are reporting that visiting commanders are invited to stay in the 262-room Ninawa Hotel in Iraq’s second-largest city, The Telegraph reported Tuesday.

Previous reviews on TripAdvisor rated the hotel as “Excellent” with a “nice wedding room.” Other reviews said it was “very suitable” for families, the newspaper reported.

CNN Arabic reported on the hotel’s opening, which included the Sunni radical terrorist group’s black flag flying on the property.
