Samuel booked rooms at The Moon Hotel, Rue de la Montagne 4B

  • one triple room for the night of Thirsday 21
  • two double rooms and two triple rooms for the nights of Friday 22, Saturday 23 and Sunday 24. (these were the last rooms of the hotel)

i.e. 3+10*3 nights for a total cost of 1104€, which makes 33.5€/night.

in each room there is a double bed, so some people will have to be "couples".

Been there in 2006 and 2007. It was okay.

Rooms at ~ 18.60€

gaah, Full!

We need someone to get the keys before 20:00. Reservations last until 16:00, so either he gets the keys before 16:00, or we just need to call for confirming the reservation

I seem to remember something that in 2007 the Madame at the reception wasn't really happy with us arriving later than 16:00 even with having had confirmed that via a phone call.
