Check-in

If you arrive during office hours please go to the Guesthouse reception desk for your key and to sign your housing contract. You will find the Guesthouse reception desk at the main entrance of the Guesthouse (second reception desk on your left).

If you arrive after 5 PM or during the weekend or a holiday, please notify the Guesthouse. They will make sure your room is ready for you and your key is waiting at the first reception desk which is open 24/7. If no one is at the desk it means the guards are making their rounds, so you might have to wait a little. You can sign the housing contract at a later time during normal office hours at the Guesthouse reception desk.
