Check in / check out times, is there enough time to sufficiently disinfect my room after departure?
With every guest change, our rooms are cleaned thoroughly and the surfaces are disinfected. For example, not only is the bed linnen is changed, all protective and hygiene covers are replaced. Please understand that we have to insist on a check-in at 10:00am and that a check-in before 16:00pm cannot be guaranteed. Before a room can be newly occupied, it is disinfected (including all walls, surfaces, lamps, textiles, etc.) by a technology called "cold fogging". A device fills the room with a fine mist of hydrogen peroxide, ozone and silver ions. Viruses are destroyed when these substances break down into pure oxygen - the procedure takes about 1 hour per room.
Pre Check in: We kindly ask you to pass uns registration detail (Names of guest in your party, each date of birth, home adress, e-mail contact and personal mobile number) already in advance - thank you.
Pre Check out: We will leave a proforma invoice to check in your personal key box to cross check. For check out or further information or any kind of questions please give us a short call, so we can arrange a personal appointement.
