Ciutadella Apartments describes on the web those elements, accessories and features that each apartment has, but not those that it does not have, that means that if a client needs to know some special or specific data, as for example if there are steps in the entrance or in any part of the apartment, if the apartment is interior or exterior, or if it is noisy or not, as well as any characteristic or element that is fundamental for the client’s stay in the apartment, he or she should expressly ask for it by email to Apartamentos Ciutadella before booking the property, so that he or she can be sure that the property meets all his or her expectations.
If the client arrives at the apartment and it does not satisfy him/her because it lacks some fundamental requirement for the client, and nevertheless this one had not previously asked it via email, the amount will not be refunded under any circumstance, neither will it be possible to change him/her to another apartment (since each property has its own owner and it is not possible to cause a damage to an owner due to an unknown need of a client).
The final cleaning of the apartment is mandatory for the USER, if this rule is not met, Apartamentos Ciutadella may claim payment from the USER for the cleaning, the total amount being between 50€ and 100€ depending on the state of the apartment. If you wish to hire other cleaning services, you can do so directly when booking on the website as an additional service, or by contacting us at email@example.com.
