Terms and Conditions

A valid contract is agreed once the appropriate booking form has been
signed by the customer and sent back to APARTMENT-CONCEPT by Fax or Letter Mail.
APARTMENT-CONCEPT is bound to provide the reserved accommodation on the reserved
dates. The customer has to pay the previously agreed on price.
After inspecting the apartment and receipt of keys, the previously agreed on price should be paid in cash by the customer.
Of course you have the option of a (online-) bank transfer by using the

convenient and absolutely free for you.

7. Smoking policy
On behalf of the large majority of our customers smoking is strictly
forbidden inside our apartments! Smoking is tolerated on the balcony only.
8. Additional charges
According to the decision of The Federal Court of Justice of Germany (Az. I
ZR 291/89 of June 6, 1991), travel agencies as well as tenants of vacation
rentals are obligated to quote final prices in their advertisement. Therefore we
explicitly state the ancillary one-off service fee (final cleaning, bedding and
towels: 25,- EUR) to be optional. If a customer does not wish the one-off
service fee of 25,- EUR to be included in the final price, the following rules
apply: Bedding and towels are to be brought by the customer. On the day of
departure the whole Apartment is to be thoroughly cleaned by the customer and
must be approved by one of our employees! The following policy applies: The
apartment must be left exactly the way it was found upon arrival.
If any provision of the Contract is held by any competent authority to be invalid or unenforceable in whole or in part, the validity of the other provisions of the Contract and the remainder of the provision in question shall not be affected.
German law shall apply to the Contract and the parties submit to the exclusive jurisdiction of the courts of the City of Berlin.
