I have a last minute medical, business or family situation and I need to cancel my stay, will I get refunded if I am in the non-refundable period before the check-in date?
As an independent small boutique hotel with a very low number of rooms that is trying to provide a unique experience to our guests, our operating costs per room are running very high, and we therefore are closely subject to our occupancy and room rates to provide such service.
It is very difficult for us to resell particular rooms of specific date at settled rate pertaining that is being released on short term notice. This is the reason why we have strict cancellation policy and that we don't waive our cancelation fee in case of change of plans or emergency. We highly recommend to purchase a travel insurance for any inconvenience or emergency that could prevent visiting una as planned.
