Terms and conditions
By booking and by confirming a booking, both parties agree to the following terms and conditions:

  1. Once a booking has been placed by the guest or his representative (customer) and was confirmed by the Hotel La Casa GmbH (hotel) a booking contract is formed after the booking is reconfirmed by the customer (this might require a deposit or payment agreement through an accepted payment method).
    Any additions or modifications (customer business conditions etc.) need to be expressly agreed to in written form and approved by La Casa GmbH.

  2. The parties in this contract are the hotel and the customer. If a third party placed the order for the guest, then this party is also liable to the hotel together with the customer as joint debtor for all obligations of the accommodation.

  3. The stay at the hotel is limited in time by the agreed arrival and departure times.
    The rented accommodation is only available to the preregistered number of persons. Any additional occupancy (including temporary, short-term and unexpected) needs to be registered at the reception before or at arrival. Any subletting or overcrowding is prohibited and may result to the premature termination without advance notice. The customer will be billed for the additional occupancy and any additional damages.

  4. This contract is binding for both parties once the booking confirmation is received. It can be terminated at any time by written statement. Termination fees may apply (see below):

    Terms for termination and termination fees for single rooms and group bookings of three rooms or less:

    • Tagespreis”/Daily rate:

    • Early Bird Rate:
      Requires valid credit card. Upon booking your credit card will be charged the full price. Once the payment has been made, the booking is considered to be confirmed by both parties. Because of the severely reduced price for this rate, there will be no refund if the room is canceled or the guest does not arrive.

    Your room will stay reserved for you after 6 pm until midnight (10pm on Sundays) if the booking has been reconfirmed by the guest in writing and was accompanied by valid credit card information.

    _________________________________



    1. Termination fees
      If the guest does not arrive without prior written notification, or if a room is canceled after 6pm on the day of arrival the full room price is charged. You will receive a note whether this fee or parts of it might be used to reduce the price of a future booking.
      We recommend trip cancellation insurance.

    2. Failure to arrive / early departure for personal reasons, illness, acts of nature etc.
      If the guest does not arrive, or if the stay ends early for personal reasons, illness, acts of nature etc. the guest is still obliged to pay the agreed price.

    3. The guest is required to pay for the room and any additional services requested. This includes services of third parties requested by the guest.

    4. The prices may be modified by the hotel if the guest changes the number of rooms or inhabitants or the length of the stay (requires the expressed permission of the hotel).

    5. All invoices need to be paid within 5 days after receiving. The hotel may demand immediate payment of accrued costs at any time.

    6. Default charges are calculated as follows: The first reminder is free of charge, the second one costs 15 Euro, the third 25 Euro. After this a collecting order is filed. The hotel may demand interest as stated in § 288 BGB on late payments. The current interest according to law is 5 percentage points above the base interest set by the European Central Bank for private entities or 8% otherwise.
      The hotel reserves the right to assert a further claim for damages.



  5. The hotel is not liable for any damages except in case of intent or gross negligence.

    2. The guest is responsible for damages caused by water, heating or electricity that were caused by improper handling or misuse. All repairs will be performed through specialist companies at the guests expense.

    3. The guest is not entitled to damages if the hotel is forced to cancel the reservation for reason of force majeure.

  6. The hotel reserves the right to offer the guest alternative accommodation if the one booked initially is not available for unexpected reasons. The guest will be notified of such a change upon arrival. Additional costs for a room upgrade are on the expense of the hotel. Such a change does not entitle the guest for a price reduction.

  7. The room(s) should be treated with care. All rooms are inspected prior to arrival and are considered to be free of defects/damages.
    Any defects found after arrival must be brought to th attention of the reception at once. We will try to find a remedy for the problem. If a defect is reported at the time of departure or later, we are no longer in a position to do something about it. A liability is excluded in this case.
    If the room is dirty beyond any normal standards, or in cases of vandalism, the hotel may charge extra fees for cleaning and repairs.
    The guest and the contract partner (the recipient of the invoice) are responsible for damages to/theft of hotel property in the room. A minimum fee of 60 Euro will be charged to take care of cleaning and repairs.
    The use of candles or spreading vividly colored blossoms is not allowed.

  8. Smoking is prohibited in the entire house, on all balconies and the courtyard!
    Please think of subsequent guest. Failure to follow this restriction may result in the immediate termination of the contract.
    Compensation for damages on hotel or third party property will be claimed. The contract partner or the person who caused it are required to pay an extra cleaning charge of 60 Euro minimum for smoking in the rooms. Alternatively the hotel may consider the room to be temporarily unsuitable for subsequent guests. In that case the contract partner or the causer will be charged the room price for at least one extra night. These fees may also be claimed after departure.
    Since our hotel is advertised as suitable for allergy sufferers, we kindly ask our smoking guests to pay special attention to this. Thank you for your cooperation and understanding.

  9. For the above reasons pets are also not allowed (see section VII and VIII)!
    An extra fee of at least 50% of the room price is mandatory. If necessary an extra cleaning fee may be charged in addition to this. Both fees may also be claimed after departure.
