FIVE Paris hotel owners have decided to allow guests to pay what they want for staying at their establishments.
In a real-life version of the Channel 4 reality series Four in a Bed, or Bienvenue Chez Nous as the French version on TF1 is known, the quintet of three- and four-star hotels in the ninth and 11th arrondissements, have reserved a few rooms each for guests who book their stays via the specially set-up www.payezcequevousvoulez.net/ website.
Those who book their rooms via the site will be able to set their own rates for their stays.
If successful, the scheme - which initially runs until August 10 - may be extended.
Bosses at the five hotels - l'Hôtel Plaza Opéra, La Villa Bohème, l'Hôtel Tour d'Auvergne, Grand Hôtel Français and L’Hôtel Villa Opéra Lamartine - say they are confident that guests will pay a fair price.
