Frequently Asked Questions / FAQ

When can I check in and out?

• Check in:

During the weekdays from 4:00 PM to 9:00 PM.

During the weekend we always apply a minimum stay of 2 nights. This means that you can check in on Friday and check out on Sunday. Unfortunately, check-in on Saturdays is not possible.

Be sure to let us know in advance if you are unable to check in during these hours, so that we can send you an access code so that you can check in yourself.

• Check-out: 6.30am - 11am (weekend from 7.30am)

Can I check in earlier?

Yes of course!

You can always leave your suitcases with us in our luggage room from 10am, and dive further into the city.

However, your room is only ready by 4 pm.

If you really want to stay in your room, you can do so from 1:00 pm on request and subject to payment of a surcharge of € 35 / room.

If you want to check in even earlier, for example at 10 am, the price of an extra night will apply.

Can I still check in after 9pm?

Of course, a late check-in is also possible. Is there a good chance that you will arrive after 9pm?

Contact us in good time by e-mail or via the chat function of our reservation system and we will provide you with all the useful information to check in after this hour.

Pay attention: you can only use this option after receiving a payment or guarantee from your credit card.

Once you have checked in and have your key in your possession, you can freely enter the hotel and your room.

This is useful if you are still going out for dinner or have to go to a party or other occasion nearby.

Is it possible to check out later?

You can request a late check-out (until 1:00 pm), this comes to € 35 per room.

If you depart later than 1 pm, the cost of an extra night will be charged.

Of course you can always leave your bags with us and dive further into the city without surcharge.

What if your stay cannot continue? Cancellation policy

For individual and group bookings:

When booking you can choose between flexible/refundable, non-refundable rates or our BeSafe rate.

  1. A non-refundable rate is cheaper but has the consequence, as the name already reveals, that you lose your stay can no longer cancel free of charge.This is never good news, but we cannot bear this for you, we count on your understanding and respect when applying and following these conditions, the reservation is firm and a cancellation fee of 100% is due in the event of cancellation/no show. We expect to receive payment for this rate no later than 4 days after booking. Our reservation system will automatically charge the card/payment method provided.
  2. You can cancel the flexible rates up to 48 hours before your arrival. For example: If you booked a stay and want to cancel less than 48 hours before the date of arrival, the entire stay will be charged. So if you want to cancel for tomorrow, you should have canceled before 4pm yesterday. Even if you do not come, you will be charged for this stay. We expect to receive payment for this rate no later than 48 hours before check-in. Our reservation system will automatically charge the specified card/payment method at least 48 hours before arrival.
  3. Be-Safe rates : BeSafe Rate Plus guarantees cancellation for any documentable reason and provides a refund of up to 100% of the prepaid amount in accordance with the rules of the insurance policy applicable at the time of booking.
