General Terms

Subject of contract

These general terms and conditions govern the legal relationship between you and the Hotel Alexander. Our confirmation of your reservation or order, which will be sent to you by mail or e-mail, serves as basis thereof.

Cancelations of hotel reservations

If you have made a reservation for a room without warranting such reservation by means of your credit card, we will keep the room reserved for you until 4:00 p.m. of the arrival date.
In case you should fail to turn up until that point in time, the Hotel Alexander will automatically be entitled to dispose of the room/s in question.

If you have warranted your reservation by means of your credit card, yet decide or have to decide not make use of the reservation, we request you to cancel it at the latest 24 hours before the day of arrival. For late cancelation or default of appearance (no show), late arrival or earlier than scheduled departure, one night's rate will be invoiced as a matter of principle. If we should get a chance to rent it again to someone else, we would, as a matter of course, abstain from billing.


For reservations made via a tour operator, the pertaining conditions for reservations and cancellations apply as indicated. If upon making the reservation online a wrong credit card number should have been entered, we would consider the reservation as not guaranteed.

Cancelations of reservations for groups of more than 6 persons

We request you to kindly inform us in writing of essential modifications with regard to your reservation as soon as possible. If, due to reasons beyond our responsibility, the reservation is completely canceled, the following flat charge for cancelations will be debited as a matter of principle:

30 to 15 days prior to arrival 25% of lost turnover for room rental
14 to 5 days prior to arrival 50% of lost turnover for room rental
4 to 0 days prior to arrival 100% of lost turnover for room rental

Said confirmation must have arrived at the Hotel Alexander until the last day of the option period.
