The hotel only guarantees check-in from 15:00 (some rooms may be ready for check-in before then, but we cannot guarantee this). Please be aware that your registration fee covers the costs of your room and the related ‘tourist tax’. The hotel’s policy is to require guests to provide a credit-card to cover any extra costs incurred by the room during your stay, so please make sure that at least 1 person per room has a card for this purpose. No money will be charged if you do not incur extra costs.
