1. These terms and conditions apply to contracts for the rental of hotel rooms for accommodation, as well as all other services and deliveries provided by the hotel for the customer.

2. The subletting or re-letting of the leased rooms as well as their use for purposes other than accommodation require the prior written consent of the hotel, whereby Section 540 (1) sentence 2 BGB is waived unless the customer is a consumer.

3. The customer's terms and conditions only apply if this has been expressly agreed in writing beforehand.


II. Conclusion of the contract, partners & statute of limitations

1. The contract is concluded when the hotel accepts the customer's application. The hotel is free to confirm the room booking in writing.

2. The contracting parties are the hotel and the customer. If a third party has ordered for the customer, he and the customer are jointly and severally liable to the hotel for all obligations arising from the hotel accommodation contract, provided that the hotel has received a corresponding declaration from the third party.

3. All claims against the hotel become statute-barred one year from the beginning of the knowledge-dependent regular limitation period of Section 199 (1) of the German Civil Code (BGB). Claims for damages become statute-barred after five years regardless of knowledge. The shortening of the limitation period does not apply to claims based on an intentional or grossly negligent breach of duty by the hotel.


III. Services, prices, payment, offsetting

1. The hotel is obliged to keep the rooms booked by the customer available and to provide the agreed services.

2. The customer is obliged to pay the applicable or agreed hotel prices for rooms provided and for other services used by him. This also applies to services and expenses of the hotel to third parties initiated by the customer.

3. The agreed prices include the respective statutory value added tax. If the period between the conclusion of the contract and the fulfillment of the contract exceeds four months and the price generally charged by the hotel for such services increases, the hotel can increase the contractually agreed price appropriately, but no more than 5%.

4. The prices can also be changed by the hotel if the customer subsequently wishes to change the number of rooms booked, the hotel's services or the length of stay of the guests and the hotel agrees to this.

5. Hotel invoices without a due date are payable within 10 days of receipt of the invoice without deduction. The hotel is entitled to make accrued claims due at any time and to demand immediate payment. In the event of default in payment, the hotel is entitled to demand the respectively applicable statutory default interest in the amount of currently 9% or, in the case of legal transactions in which a consumer is involved, in the amount of 5% above the base rate. The hotel reserves the right to provide evidence of higher damage.

6. The hotel is entitled to request a reasonable advance payment or security deposit upon conclusion of the contract or thereafter, taking into account the legal provisions for package tours. The amount of the advance payment and the payment dates can be agreed in writing in the contract.

7. The customer can only offset or reduce an undisputed or legally binding claim against a claim by the hotel.


IV. Withdrawal by the customer (ie cancellation, cancellation) / failure to use the hotel's services

1. Cancellation by the customer of the contract concluded with the hotel requires the hotel's written consent. If this is not done, the price agreed in the contract must be paid even if the customer does not make use of the contractual services. This does not apply in the event of a breach of the hotel's obligation to take into account the rights, legal interests and interests of the customer, if the customer can no longer be expected to adhere to the contract or if he has any other statutory or contractual right of withdrawal.

2. If a date for free withdrawal from the contract has been agreed in writing between the hotel and the customer, the customer can withdraw from the contract until then without triggering payment or compensation claims by the hotel. The customer's right of withdrawal expires if he does not exercise his right of withdrawal in writing vis-à-vis the hotel by the agreed date, unless there is a case of withdrawal by the customer in accordance with number 1 sentence 3.

3. In the case of rooms not used by the customer, the hotel must offset the income from renting the rooms to other parties as well as the saved expenses. 4. The hotel is free to demand the contractually agreed remuneration and to apply a flat rate deduction for saved expenses. In this case, the customer is obliged to pay at least 80% of the contractually agreed room rate. The customer is free to prove that the above-mentioned claim did not arise or did not arise in the required amount.


V. Resignation of the hotel

1. If the customer's right to withdraw free of charge has been agreed in writing within a certain period, the hotel is entitled to withdraw from the contract during this period if there are inquiries from other customers about the contractually booked rooms and the customer, upon inquiry by the hotel, is entitled to Resignation not waived.

2. If an agreed advance payment or an advance payment requested in accordance with Clause III No. 6 above has not been made even after a reasonable grace period set by the hotel has expired, the hotel is also entitled to withdraw from the contract.

3. Furthermore, the hotel is entitled to extraordinarily withdraw from the contract for an objectively justified reason, for example if • force majeure or other circumstances for which the hotel is not responsible make it impossible to fulfill the contract; • Rooms are booked with misleading or false information about essential facts, eg about the customer or the purpose; • the hotel has justified cause to believe that the use of the hotel's service may endanger the smooth business operations, security or public image of the hotel without this being attributable to the hotel's sphere of control or organization; • There is a violation of Clause I No. 2 above.

The customer is obliged to do what is reasonable for him to remedy the disruption and to keep possible damage to a minimum. The hotel is not liable for the loss of valuables.
