Our best rate promise


For our clients willing to book directly through our reservation department by any means whatsoever (telephone, email, online booking), we commit to making them benefit from the best available rates, including special offers : therefore, we guarantee the most interesting rates available on the market for direct bookings.

This guarantee applies on the rates and offers that are still valid on the reservation date. It doesn't take effect anymore for rates or offers that would have expired at this date, or for the ones that would occur after the reservation date.


Rates: taxes and variability


VAT taxes are included in our rates (2.10% rate for accommodation, 10% rate for food and drinks, 20% rate for the other services). Local city tax is not included in our rates (€1.20 per person per day in 2018).


Our rates may be modified at any moment without prior notice.


Guarantee deposit ("Arrhes")


The effective payment of a guarantee deposit (French legal definition: « Arrhes ») is required in order to confirm any reservation. The deposit represents 30% of the total amount of your stay, payable by credit card, bank wire of French banking check. The deposit amount will be deducted from your total due payable upon check-out.


According to French Law (art. 1590 Code Civil), guarantee deposits defined as "Arrhes" are strictly non-refundable.


Reservation confirmation


A reservation will be deemed confirmed and guaranteed only once a guarantee deposit has been received by the hotel (general case, see above), or when a prepayment (full or partial) has been received.


Booking modification, Cancellation and Early departure


Unless elsewhere specified, modifications are possible upon request. They are subject to availabilities and conditioned to a modified stay amount equal or superior to the initial reservation amount.


Cancellation of a reservation for which a 30% guarantee deposit has been paid (general case, see above):

a cancellation fee is due. Its amount is equal to the guarantee deposit.


For other types of reservations, including prepaid stays, a cancellation fee does apply as follows:

- 22 days or before planned arrival date (15.00h local time): 30% of the total reservation amount,

- Between 21 and 8 days included : 70% of the total reservation amount,

- 7 days or less before planned arrival date, including no-shows: 100% of the reservation amount.


For early departures, occurring before the planned checkout date, the total amount of the initially-planned stay will remain due to the hotel.
