Paris hotels allow guests to 'pay what you want'

PARIS (AFP) - Five Paris hotels on Monday launched a scheme allowing guests to "pay what you want" in an experiment that may be extended if successful.

The three- and four-star hotels taking part in the scheme are located in the city's 9th and 11th districts - a little away from the city's tourist centres.

The owners are bullish about the prospects and confident that clients will not abuse the scheme.

Tourists often complain about high hotel rates in Paris and tiny rooms.
