A la Carte Maps

In a recent newsletter to our hosts we put a call out to gather their tips and hints as to how to treat their guests, whether that be with a welcoming smile, fresh flowers or home-cooked local food.

One host, Yvonne, provided a great tip which I thought was definitely worth a blog post all of its own. Her 9flats property is in Vienna and because she used the service herself, she suggested using www.alacartemaps.com so that guests get insider tips and tricks.

According to their website “A la Carte Maps are a combination of travel guide, city map and piece of art: Our beautiful fold-out maps feature a range of great insider tips for things to see, do, experience and discover in a city.”

9flats.com is all about experiencing travel like a local and A La Carte Maps concept certainly fits in with our philosophy. Their simple idea is that locals from across the world provide insider-tips, advice and information – all written on a beautiful hand-drawn map.
