Calling the Congo - Help

Hi,

I'm trying to call a hotel in the Congo and I can't get through.

Does anyone know how to call there?

I'm dialing: 011 242 81 03 07 for Le Meridien. It's not working and I need to speak to them.

Thanks.

A strategy that sometimes has worked for me when I've called a difficult to reach place has been dialling the operator and placing a station-to-station call. It's more expensive, but you pay for the call only when you get through to the organisation that you're trying to reach.

In one instance, a few years ago, we got a diligent Canadian operator who spent something like 1.5 hours on the phone, and succeeded in reaching the party to whom we were trying to get through. I'm sure you don't want to hear that it took 1.5 hours!!! But at least we didn't pay for that waiting time.

Another strategy, if your question can be answered by the organisation's head office, is to call there and not to attempt to call the in-country property, but I don't know if that would serve your needs in this instance.
