I’m often told that I moan, so for once today I am going to sing the praise of a French company !
Last night I was looking to book a nice hotel in Paris close to the Eiffel Tower but all the nice little boutique hotels on my favourite website were fully booked or excessively out of price range (more than 300 Euros for a 1 night stay when all we want is somewhere to put our heads down for a few hours and also not including breakfast!) so quite disappointed I booked a Best Western Hotel which are fine, but not quite as snazzy and upbeat as I’d been hoping.
Not being very familiar with Paris, I sent the hotel an email asking for directions, not to the hotel but from the hotel to the airport. I didn’t really expect an answer. But at 9 am this morning, I received an email in reply giving me detailed directions and a link to the RATP website with the exact map on it! I rarely come across customer service like this in France so a big well done to the Best Western Alma in Paris, thank you!
Nb. Now just need to hope my stay goes okay!
