If you cancel within 24 hours of your arrival and we are unable to sell your bed to anyone else, we will charge you for the first night of your booked stay.

2. No-shows: if you do not turn up without cancelling, we will charge you for the first night.

Check-out until 11am, check-in from 3pm to 9pm.

If you plan or need to arrive after 9pm, please let us know in advance so that you don’t have to sleep under Heidelberg‘s Old Bridge as we lock Lotte‘s front door at 9 pm.
