눉I am a frequent user of booking.com and it is the first time that with booking.com I had to make a pre-payment via bank transfer before arrival. If I had known, maybe I would have chosen a normal hotel. Nonetheless, I was very happy in the end to have done it. Truly, the need of a bank payment before arrival was written in the rules of the place, but I had not noticed it. So, I think it should be better highlighted by booking.com, so that people know at the moment of booking that they will have to make a bank transfer before arrival.
눇Everything was perfect and excellent: the flat, the kindness of the owners, the location... the only limit is the absence of wifi in the apartment "au soleil couchant" (while there is wifi in "au soleil levant" but it is in a different place, and it is not convenient to go there just to use it).
