Terms & Conditions
These terms and conditions are between you and Conscious Hotels and apply to all bookings of hotel rooms in any Conscious hotel, to the exclusion of all other general terms and conditions.
You agree that you will make reservations in good faith for legitimate use by you and your invited guests only and not for any other purpose, including but not limited to reselling, impermissibly assigning or posting on third party websites, or making speculative, false or fraudulent reservations or any reservation in anticipation of demand.
2. Room rate and city tax
The room rate charges agreed when you made your reservation will apply to your booking. Meals, drinks and other extras are not included in room rate charges, unless otherwise agreed. All charges are inclusive of VAT and are shown and must be paid in local currency. Room rate charges must be prepaid on non-refundable offers, all other charges must be paid on check-out.
City tax will apply. The city tax may change between the time of booking and the time of your stay in our hotel. The city tax in 2019 is 7%. From January 1, 2020 the city tax will be 7% + a fixed charge of €3 euros p.p.p.n.
Please note our hotels don’t accept cash payments only pin and credit cards are accepted.
3. Cancellation, modifications and no-show
Want to cancel a reservation? We have 2 types of rates; flexible and non-refundable.
For the flexible rates cancelling your reservation is OK but you must tell us by 2pm one day before (24 hours) you were booked to arrive unless we specify otherwise when you’re booking. If you cancel your reservation after 2pm, one day before arrival, we’ll charge you 1 night’s room and taxes. Peak periods may have additional cancellation restrictions, but we’ll tell you about those when you book with us.
With a non-refundable rate you are not able to change or cancel your stay and thus you will be charged for 100% of the costs.
If you have booked a room through the use of a travel agency or an online travel agency (such as Booking.com, Expedia and Hotels.com), you must cancel or modify your booking through the agency that you used to make the booking.
Refunds of prepaid charges are generally processed within five business days after your request to cancel or modify your booking.
From 2pm on. If a room is available for early check-in, you can check in early. Depending on the hotel an early check-in fee may apply payable at the time of check-in.
Until 11am. If you have not checked-out by 11am, a late check-out fee may be charged. If you have not checked-out by 4pm we may charge an extra night. Open balances will be charged to your credit card on file.
Yes, we can store your luggage for one day on the day of check-out.
No, there’s no charge. Just contact one of our hosts.
6. Late check-out
Depending on the hotel late check-out may be possible against payment of an additional fee.
7. Shortening your stay
If you need to shorten your stay, the full value of your booking will be charged if you have booked a non-refundable rate. If you need to shorten your stay and have booked a flexible rate, please inform our staff asap but at least before 2pm 24 hours before your arrival. If you inform us later than 2pm a late check-out fee or even the next night’s stay will be charged depending on the time of notification and the hotel you stay in, for more information see the respective rate plan details.
8. No show
In the unfortunate event of not showing up on the day of arrival the full amount of the reservation including taxes will be charged to your credit card. Note: if the room is not checked-in by 4am (in the night following the day of arrival), the system will automatically put the room as a ‘no show’. This means the reservation is cancelled, but the obligation to pay for the full amount of the reservation including taxes remains. Please let us know if you arrive after midnight, so we can hold the room for you.
An invoice will be sent to the email address provided at the time of booking or at the time of check-in.
Invoices cannot be modified after check-out.
If you are underaged and you are not accompanied by someone of age 18 or older Conscious Hotels reserves the right to evict you from the hotel.
