2. USE OF THE PRE-BOOKING AND ONLINE BOOKING
2.1 Pre-Booking Services
The Online Pre-Booking services are purely for information purposes; their purpose is solely to offer the user the chance to consult the availability of an apartment in the establishment. Within 24 hours the user will receive an email confirming if their booking has been made, therefore the services will only be binding once they have been accepted by LORD through confirmation of the booking via email and payment of it by the user.
The user must verify confirmation of the booking and immediately notify LORD in writing of any error.
2.2. Online Booking Services
The purpose of online booking services is to book an apartment at the LORD establishment. The use of these services will entail the full and unreserved acceptance, and the validity, of all the terms or general conditions, which will be considered to have been automatically incorporated into the contract that is signed with LORD, without requiring a written transcription in it- and which are included in the last updated version of these terms and/or general conditions.
Contracting procedure: By using the service will receive a confirmation email which will include the confirmation that their purchase order is in the process of being confirmed. If you are a consumer, once the charge corresponding to your booking has been made, you will receive an email confirming it, this email serves as a receipt of your booking. The credit card used in the booking may be requested upon arrival to verify that the data provided is correct. The owner of the credit card must be present at that point.
Guarantee: The booking is confirmed and guaranteed with a credit card. If it is not presented at the establishment without advance notice, the full amount of the booking (VAT and fees included) will be charged.
Termination of the contract and compensation for booking cancellation: The credit card is only a means of guarantee. The cancellation of bookings by the user will not result in the early cancellation costs, provided that it is carried out more than 5 days in advance of the arrival date of the booking. Following that threshold, LORD will charge, as compensation, the full amount of the booking (VAT and fees included).
In accordance with what is stipulated in Law 3/2014, of 27 March amending the restated text of the General Law for the Protection of Consumers and Users, the supplies of services or goods produced in accordance with the specifications of the consumer or clearly personalised, or that, due to their nature, cannot be returned or may be damaged or quickly expire, are exempt from withdrawal.
If arrival is after 18:00 guests must check in online before 16:00 on the day. To do this, you will be sent a link and instructions.
Any modification to a confirmed booking must be requested in writing signed by the holder of the booking which should be sent via email to email@example.com.
The change, if possible, will be accepted in writing via firstname.lastname@example.org. This change will be governed by the booking conditions of your fare. If the modification results in an increase/reduction in the value of the stay due to an increase/reduction of days or due to a modification of the arrival and departure dates that entails a rate change, the price that will apply to the modified dates will be the one in force at the time of the modification.
Once the reserved stay has begun, leaving it before the date contracted will not result in the right to any discount or refund.
Any cancellation of your booking will be governed by the cancellation policy chosen at the time you made your booking. In particular, cancellations or modifications of dates or modifications with a reduction in the number of nights of a booking (or services/experiences linked to it) made within the 5 days before arrival may result in the full amount of the booking being charged.
Policy on minors.
Minors under the age of 18 must stay in the establishment accompanied by their parents, guardians or adults who are duly authorised by the former. The staff at the hotel may request the relevant documentation identifying the adults as parents/guardians or authorised people.
Prices per apartment and night.
Prices are only valid in writing and during the period that is indicated. When there are justifiable reasons, LORD reserves the right to modify these fares without prior notice.
Prices relating to the booking will be outlined to you during the booking process. VAT is applied to prices, without prejudice to the possibility of additional taxes also being applied, in accordance with the current local regulation. The aforementioned local taxes must be paid directly at the establishment.
Prices displayed at the time of the booking include VAT (or the equivalent tax) in accordance with the tax rate applicable at the time.
If the tax rate changes between the booking date and the date of the delivery of the services, creating a disparity, in accordance with tax regulations, the tax rate applied to the final price will be that corresponding to the time of the delivery of services or the accumulation of tax, even in cases where this results in an increase in relation to the end price indicated to the client during the booking.
2.3 The user undertakes to use the services in accordance with the Law, morality, good customs and public order, as well the provisions of these Terms and/or General Contracting Conditions. Consequently, they are obliged to not use the services, for ends or purposes that are unlawful and/or contrary to what is established in these Terms and/or General Contracting Conditions, harmful to the rights and/or interests of third parties or that could, in any way, damage the services, LORD and/or its image.
In particular, it is highlighted that:
It is forbidden to smoke in the apartments and the rest of the building. If this regulation is breached, an amount of up to 300 Euros will be imposed to cover the cleaning costs of the apartment, and in particular the cleaning of upholstery, curtains and quilts.
Pets and accompanying animals are not permitted.
Parties or music at a high volume are not permitted in apartments. If other guests or residents in surrounding buildings complain and/or call the police, this may result in an immediate eviction regardless of the time of day or night.
Nobody other than the people listed in the booking is permitted to enter the apartment.
After the stay, the apartment, and the kitchen in particular, must be returned by the guest in a similar state of tidiness and cleanliness to that found on entering the apartment, with clean dishes, cutlery and kitchenware. Guests are responsible for taking out rubbish produced by them. If they do not do so, an extra cost of up to 100 Euros will be charged, which can be paid by the guest or deducted from the deposit
The breach of this commitment, as well as possible damage caused to the apartment or building, will result in the loss of the deposit without prejudice to additional liability that is not covered by the amount of the deposit.
It is not permitted to occupy an apartment with a larger number of people than declared when making the booking. If it is necessary to accommodate more people, The Passage should be notified and the rental conditions may be modified.
All children, regardless of age, count in terms of calculating the maximum capacity of the accommodation, this capacity, adding adults and children, can never be exceeded.
In the event of the breach of any of these two conditions, The Passage reserves the right to demand the immediate eviction of the apartment and the termination of the contract, without the client being able to request damages or compensation of any kind for the enforcement of this measure and the client will be obliged to pay pending rent if there is any.
2.4 LORD can, for greater flexibility and to benefit users, unilaterally modify, at any time and without prior notice, the services provided, and the conditions regarding operativity, techniques and the use of services. Likewise, users, with the aim of improving the service and establishing an optimal level of quality, the ultimate objective of LORD, can suggest modifications that they deem useful, by contacting the managers of the page via the email address: email@example.com
