    Download as PDF
    I. Scope

    The hotel (hereinafter, “B&B”) lets out the agreed hotel room plus agreed facilities (hereinafter “Hotel Room”) to the guest (hereinafter “Guest”) for the agreed period of the stay. These General Terms of Business and General Reservation Conditions (hereinafter: General Terms and Conditions) shall apply to hotel accommodation agreements for letting out Hotel Rooms as well as to all other services and supplies provided by the hotel to the Guests.

    II. Conclusion of agreement

    1.By reserving a Hotel Room the Guest makes an offer to B&B to enter into an accommodation agreement. If there is availability, the Guest will receive from B&B a reservation number by e-mail, fax, telephone or on site in person, depending on the type of reservation made (online/by e-mail, by phone or on site). The accommodation agreement between B&B and the Guest shall come into effect when the Guest receives the reservation number, when the Guest makes payment of the overnight rate or when the access code is provided or sent (see clause IV.1.) to the Guest – whichever is earlier.

    2.The Guest is advised that reservation numbers that the Guest receives from third parties (e.g. through Internet portals or travel companies) are not identical to B&B's reservation number. The Guest may ask for the B&B reservation number at the hotel.

    3.B&B's offers for entering into an accommodation agreement are made without obligation and are not binding. B&B may, at its own discretion, refuse to enter into an accommodation agreement with a Guest.

    4.The Guest shall not have any right to use of a particular Hotel Room. He/she is only entitled to use of a Hotel Room in the room category booked by him/her.

    III. Reservation, cancellation

    1.    The difference between the terms “simple reservation” and “guaranteed reservation” as used hereinafter is that with a simple reservation the Guest only orders a room, whereas in the case of a guaranteed reservation payment is also guaranteed by provision of his/her credit card details. The term “cancellation” as used hereinafter means that the Guest has rescinded the accommodation agreement.

    2.    If the Guest, in the case of a simple reservation, does not show up at the hotel by 7 p.m., the reservation shall be forfeited completely and the reserved rooms shall become freely available. In the case of a guaranteed reservation, the reservation of the Hotel Room will also be held for the Guest after 7 p.m.

    3.    The Guest may cancel a simple and guaranteed reservation free of charge up to 7 p.m. on the date of arrival. Cancellation of guaranteed reservations after 7 p.m. on the date of arrival shall not be permitted and shall not lead to termination of the accommodation agreement. In such cases the Guest shall still be required to pay the overnight rate for the first night less 10% for saved expenditures. The same applies if the Guest does not show up on the date of arrival without cancelling the reservation. The Guest shall be free to prove that B&B’s saved expenditures are higher.

    4.    For multi-day guaranteed reservations, all subsequent nights as of the second night will be cancelled in the case of a no-show. As a general rule, the Guest shall have no claim to the subsequent nights.

    5.    The special terms and conditions set out in clauses VIII. and IX. shall apply to group trips and reservations for dates of trade fairs and special events.

    6.    Reservations at rates designated as early bird rates shall be binding and cannot be modified or cancelled free of charge and are only bookable via the website In such cases, the overnight rate shall fall due immediately on reservation and shall be non-refundable. In the case of cancellation or no-show, the Guest shall be refunded only saved expenditures equal to 10% of the overnight rate. The Guest shall be free to prove that B&B’s saved expenditures are higher.

    7.    If the Guest decides to pay an online reservation directly through an online payment system, the reservation cannot be modified or cancelled online. In the case of a modification or cancellation request, the Guest must contact the hotel directly.

    IV. Arrival and departure

    1. B&B shall provide the Guest with a Hotel Room of the agreed room category/with the agreed facilities on the date of arrival based on availability, generally from 2 p.m. onwards but in any event by no later than 3 p.m. On check-in the Guest shall receive, either at the reception, the check-in terminals located at the hotel, or during online check-in, an access code for access to the hotel and the Hotel Room.

    2. The Guest shall return the Hotel Room duly vacated and undamaged by no later than 12 noon on the departure date. After such time, B&B shall be entitled to charge the Guest 100% of the overnight rate for his/her use of the Hotel Room exceeding the contractually agreed use as a result of the Hotel Room being vacated late.

    2. The rates applicable shall be the agreed prices or the prices stated on B&B's price list valid on the date of conclusion of the agreement.
