Huh? The Magic of Translation...

I love travelling to very un-western places if even just to get a hook on the English translations. These excerpts are from a website. Here is the hotel we propose to stay at in Tunis, Tunisia. The query is should we reserve Room #1?:

"What would think if we offer to you a soft nest in the centre town, a true diamond in an ecrin that we propose to you, a true residence, with all the conveniences necessary to your autonomy."

Or take a Chance on Room #2?:

"In more we offer to you a single position in the centre town from where you will be able to achieve all your races"

Should we elect for achieving all of our races, or maybe go with a diamond ecrin?

What the hell is a diamond ecrin anyway?
