Bookings, Amends and Cancellations

What is the cancellation policy?

All pre-paid bookings are non-refundable, sorry about that. So if you cancel, don't turn up or we deny check-in to a person not accompanied, we can't give you back your monies.

All bookings made with a corporate account may be cancelled as per your company agreement. Cancellation outside of these terms or being a no-show means you'll be charged for the first night.

Can I change my booking?

Switch around your dates (subject to availability) by submitting our online form. All you gotta take care of is a €15 change fee and any rate difference.

If you're less than 24 hours from your arrival, call us to change your booking directly until 4pm on the day of arrival. Our number is +31 (0) 20 888 5555.

Do I have to pre-pay my room?

So we can offer the best available rates, all bookings are pre-paid in advance. 

When will my credit card be charged?

Payment for a booking is processed within 48 hours of the booking being made.

Rooms

What different rooms does the hotel have?

There are 111 rooms. Types include Shoebox, Cosy, Roomy, or one of our three Concept rooms. Feel free to request! They'll cost you the same as the others, but are subject to availability.

Got kids! Are two rooms necessary?

The maximum number of people in a room is two. However we can accommodate infants with travel cots sharing their parent's room or an extra bed for children under 12 years old. Travel cots and extra beds are available free of charge from the hotel. As soon as you have made your reservation, please call the hotel directly in order to check the availability and book a cot or extra bed.

I'm sure I booked for two adults, but my confirmation only says one!

Our rates are charged per room rather than per person, so this does not affect the price you pay. There is no problem if you have not entered the correct number of guests. We will simply change this at check in. Please note the maximum capacity is two adults per room.

Is there a hair dryer in the room?

Yes! All of our rooms have a hairdryer for all your primping and preening needs.
