Find your… Concierge
What is a five-star trip without a concierge to tend to your every whim? Well, the joy of Symphony, a newly released app from Spain, is that this digital concierge will understand you even better than Barney did Vivian in Pretty Woman. The Barcelona-based team has created an app designed to remove all effort from researching and arranging hotels, dinners and just about any activity on your holiday. Their rather ingenious approach gets users to swipe through a series of images to build a highly personal profile, meaning you either “dislike,” “like” or “love” a certain image, restaurant, hotel or activity. The app then serves up a fully customised luxury city guide and can book any suggestions that take your fancy. And because even the technophiles among us yearn sometimes to speak to a human, you can activate “Ludwig,” a built-in live-chat concierge, who will modify your profile or reservations.
