Terms and Conditions

These terms and conditions define the rights and obligations of the Parties within the scope of reservations made through Korkdam (hereinafter the hotel or Korkdam or we) website. We kindly ask our Customers (hereinafter Customer or You) to read and understand our terms and conditions before completing their booking as by making a booking via our website, you also accept and agree to all terms and conditions.

  1. RESERVATION

A reservation is deemed to have been made upon the hotel’s acceptance of your reservation request. You may receive an acknowledgment of receipt by email after your reservation. You are solely responsible for your choice of services and the suitability of those services for your need. We cannot be held responsible in this respect.

The Customer does not acquire the right to be provided with specific rooms. The Parties to the contract are the hotel and the Customer. If a third party placed the order on behalf of the Customer, then that party shall be liable vis­à­vis the hotel for all obligations arising from the hotel accommodation contract as joint and several debtors together with the Customer, insofar as the hotel has a corresponding statement by the third party.

Rates published online are not valid for Group Bookings. A “Group Booking” is defined as a booking for 10 rooms/suites or more with the same or similar arrival and departure date.

In case of any reservation that has been identified as a Group Booking via Korkdam.com, the hotel reserves the right to contact the client in connection with special conditions and rates relating to Group Bookings.

In case of any reservation that has been identified as a Group Booking via Korkdam.com, the hotel reserves the right to refuse and cancel any such reservations if the client has not accepted the hotel’s applicable special booking conditions and rates. Exceptions to this is Group Bookings which are reserved via an authorised and dedicated booking link.

  1. Repudiation by Customer (Cancellation, Annulment)/Failure to Use Hotel Services (No Show)

Cancellation by the Customer of the contract concluded with the hotel requires the hotel’s written consent. If such is not given, then the price agreed in the contract must be paid even if the Customer does not avail himself of the contractual services.

This shall not apply with the breach of obligation of the hotel to take into account the rights, objects of legal protection and interests of the Customer, if holding to the contract is no longer reasonable or another statutory or contractual cancellation right exists. To the extent the hotel and Customer agreed in writing upon a date for a cost­free cancellation of the contract, the Customer may cancel the contract up to that date without incurring payment or damage compensation claims by the hotel. The Customer’s right of cancellation shall expire if he does not exercise his cancellation right in writing vis­à­vis the hotel by the agreed date.

Reservations with prepayment cannot be changed and/or cancelled in any way, and sums paid in advance as a deposit cannot be refunded. If rooms are not used by the Customer, the hotel must apply credit for the income from renting the rooms to other parties and also for saved expenses.

At its discretion, the hotel may demand the contractually agreed compensation and to make a flat­rate deduction for saved expenses. In this case, the Customer shall pay a percentage, determined by the hotel’s internal regulations, of the contractually agreed rate for lodging with or without breakfast. Guests departing before their booked check­out date will be charged for the remaining nights of the original reservation confirmation.

III. Hotel Stay, Room Availability, Delivery and Return

In the application of the regulation customers may be asked on arrival at the hotel to fill out a police registration card (or immigration form or both). For this purpose, Customers will be asked to provide identification so that a check can be made to decide if they need to complete the registration. The hotel may have some internal Regulations for Customer and you accept to be bound by and undertake to respect these regulations.

Our hotel offers WIFI access that allow you to connect to the internet. You undertake to ensure that computing resources made available by us are not used for any illegal purposes or in any way for reproduction, representation, provision or communication to the public work or object protected by copyright or related right such as texts, images photographs (and so on) without the authorization of the copyright holder when this authorization is required. You agree to be bound by all the terms and conditions of our WIFI provider.

Unless otherwise agreed in writing on the booking confirmation, you are entitled to check in at any time from 2:00 p.m on the agreed arrival date. The Customer does not have the right to earlier availability.

On the agreed date of departure, you shall kindly vacate your room(s) and make them available to the hotel no later than 12:00 noon unless otherwise agreed in writing. After that time, on the grounds of the delayed vacating of the room for use exceeding the contractual time, the hotel may charge 50 percent of the full accommodation rate for the additional use of the room until 6:00 p.m. (after 6:00 p.m.: 100 percent). The Customer is at liberty to show the hotel that it incurred no or much lesser claim to use damages. The hotel shall act to remedy upon knowledge thereof or upon objection without undue delay by the Customer. The Customer shall be obliged to undertake actions reasonable for him to eliminate the disruption and to keep any possible damage at a minimum.

The Customer shall notify the hotel immediately after gaining knowledge of the loss, destruction, or damage while in the hotel. Insofar as a parking space is provided to the Customer in the hotel garage or a hotel parking lot, this does not constitute a safekeeping agreement, even if a fee is exchanged. The hotel assumes no liability for loss of or damage to motor vehicles parked on the hotel’s property, nor the contents thereof.

Wake­up calls are carried out by the hotel with the greatest possible diligence. Messages, mail and merchandise deliveries for guests are handled with care. The hotel assumes no liability in this regard but will make its best effort to deliver, hold, and for a fee forward such items (on request).

  1. What kind of security measures for the compliance with data protection?

We strive to maintain the appropriate standards of security and we have put in place robust technical and organisational measures for the protection of your Personal Data in accordance with the current state of the art technologies, especially to protect the data against loss, falsification or access by unauthorised third persons. For the transfer of particularly sensible Personal Data via the internet, such as for example credit card details, we exclusively use encrypted transmission routes and we comply with the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standards (PCI DSS) which is a set of policies and procedures intended to optimise the security of credit, debit and cash card transactions and protect cardholders against misuse of their personal information. However, the transmission of information via the internet is not completely secure. So, whilst we will do our best to protect your personal data, we cannot guarantee the security of your data transmitted to our Website. Any transmission is at your own risk. Once we have received your personal data we will use strict procedures and security features to prevent unauthorised access. Our internal processing takes place inside a VPN which is firewalled against the open internet and inside of which any kind of communication is processed in an encrypted way. As far as third parties (i.e. external companies) are rendering data processing services for us, we have committed them to the compliance with our data privacy regulations. The external service providers are supervised by our Global Data Protection Manager in terms of compliance with these regulations.

request that the processing of your personal data is restricted by Korkdam, request not to be subject to a decision based solely on automated processing, including profiling, which produces legal effects concerning you or similarly significantly affects you.

If we process your personal data based on your consent, we will retain your personal data for a limited period of time needed to fulfil the purposes of processing it.

Where we enter into a contract with you, we will keep your information for the duration of the contractual relationship you have with us, and, to the extent permitted, after the end of that relationship for as long as necessary to perform the purposes set out in this notice. The criteria to determine the storage period are statutory and contractual requirements, the nature of our relationship with you, the nature of the data concerned and the technical requirements. Laws may require us to hold certain information for specific periods.

Where we process personal data for marketing purposes or with your consent, we process the data until you ask us to stop and for a short period after this (to allow us to implement your requests).
