"The old Bait and Switch?" Hotel Vier Jahreszeiten Tip by Callavetta
Hotel Vier Jahreszeiten, Heidelberg: 185 reviews and 3 photos
I didn't stay in this hotel and I am not planning to. I'm writing this to comment on my experience when I attempted to book a room online.
I was really excited to find this on the hotel website:
If you book directly in the Hotel, no Travel-Agency, you can pay your bill in US-Dollars.
Exchange rate 1 to 1
Ask for our summer-specials
In the winter ask for: ? 3 days staying - 2 days paying ?
What a nice deal, given the state of the USD against the Euro right now. So I inquired about staying 3 nights and paying for 2, and also about the payment offer.
The reply told me I could book a room for 3 nights and would get a 4th free. If I wanted the payment offer I would have to pay cash for all 4 nights.
Hmmmmmm, suddenly the hotel was no longer in my price range! Also, they offered me a double room at the top of the 85 euro to 100 euro range.
Unique Qualities: The hotel looks like a great location and a lovely place. I just didn't like the bait and switch tactic.
