PAYMENT POLICIES

Currency and Tax:
All rates are quoted in Euros, inclusive of the prevailing rate of VAT, unless otherwise stated.

Credit Card Pre-Authorisation:
Should the guest be using a credit card to guarantee the room reservation, the Hotel may hold an amount on the card provided prior to arrival to secure the booking. For non-refundable bookings, prepayment will be charged to the said card prior to the guest’s arrival.

Deposits:
For all reservations, the Hotel requires a deposit of €80 for incidental charges upon check-in. For deposit using credit card, pre-authorisation by the Hotel is required.

Third-party Booking Sources:
In the case of cancellation or modifications to reservations made through third party providers, we recommend that guests first contact their source of booking for assistance before contacting the front desk as it is not usually possible to amend bookings made through third parties directly with the hotel.

Deposit & Pre-Authorisation:
For non-prepaid bookings, the Hotel reserves the right to receive payment or request pre-authorisation of the full amount for the stay period based on the credit card details provided upon check-in.

Please note that the Hotel reserves the right to pre-authorise the booker’s credit card 24 hours prior to arrival. This places the pre-authorised amount in a holding state which also temporarily reduces one’s credit limit. The pre-authorisation is not a charge and no funds will be debited from the account at this point, this will also not be reflected in the credit card statement since no charge has been made. The credit limit will be released back to the cardholder within one week depending on the issuing bank.
