Decoration and distribution of similar properties

When there is more than one rental unit of the same type of accommodation, the photos and description will be generic. In this case, the accommodation that a guest books may differ in decoration, but not in layout or equipment.

Moreover, only the characteristics shared by all the rental units of a same type of accommodation will be mentioned (for example, if only 1 out of 5 apartments has a dishwasher, this will not be mentioned in the description).

Electricity

If an accommodation on the site has an obligatory rate for electricity, it means that the use of electricity is not included in the rental rate. Please read the description of the property for further information.

Reservation with a pet

All properties that allow reservations with a pet apply an extra charge. When the guest marks “pet” this charge will be automatically added to the total rate of the reservation.
