The Monument may, however, use reasonable endeavours to try and re-locate any confirmed booking, cancelled by us, to an alternative location similar in standard to the hotel.
  2. All bookings are made for a room type in the hotel. If the guest has indicated a room preference at the time of booking, The Monument will use reasonable efforts to honour this. However, there is no guarantee that the guest will be able to stay in the specific room or bed selected; applying equally throughout the duration of the stay, meaning a room or bed change may be necessary. These changes may be due to operational or safety reasons and if the guest is allocated to a room with a lower rate than originally selected, The Monument will refund the difference in room rates.

Damage

  1. The Monument reserves the right to charge a guests’ debit or credit card, and/ or withhold the guests deposit, for any damage incurred during their stay, and the guest hereby authorises The Monument to make this charge when necessary. Damages pertain to the room, hotel or for missing property, with the inclusion of specialist cleaning costs.

Parking

  1. The Monument has limited parking opportunities and therefore, cannot guarantee a guest a parking space unless otherwise corresponded. Parking cannot be reserved online and therefore; the guest must have had prior contact with The Monument if they wish to park.
  2. Parking will be from check-in (15.00 p.m.) until check-out (11 a.m.) with a charge of € 25,- per night. When discussed with the reception, extra charges may apply when extending the duration of the parking.

Hotel etiquette: The Monument house rules

  1. Guest Behaviour. At all times, guests are required to conduct themselves appropriately and to comply with The Monument’s company procedures. Moreover, guests must act in respectful manner, by not causing offence or harm to other guests or employees, not disrupting the hotels procedures and or comfort and enjoyment of other guests. This includes requests from staff regarding behaviour and cleanliness, and respect for property, employees, guests and their health and safety. When a guest has broken these etiquette requirements, The Monument retains the right to refuse accommodation and or services from the person or persons in question. Furthermore, The Monument will provide no refund for the remaining nights of a guests stay and hold no liability for the loss of services if the above rule has been broken.
  2. Hotel etiquette; The thing that sets a hotel apart from any other form of accommodation is the social aspect. For everyone to enjoy The Monuments facilities, there are a few things to consider.
  3. Respect; The Monument has guests from all parts of the world and so requires each guest to respect all cultures, religions, and sexual orientations. Failure to do so will result in termination of booking with no refund.
  4. Night-time; After 23.00pm The Monument requires all common areas, hallways, and rooms to be quiet.
  5. Around the hotel; When arriving late at night, The Monument asks all guests to respect the neighbours and local area by minimising the noise at these times.
  6. No Smoking; smoking inside the hotel is prohibited. Failure to abide by this rule, will lead to termination of booking with no refund and immediate removal from the hotel. If the fire alarm is incorrectly activated (i.e. due to smoking inside) there will be a fine of €250, payable by the person or persons responsible for activating the alarm.
  7. Soft drugs; due to The Monument being located in the Netherlands (where soft drugs are legally sold in certain establishments); certain liberties apply when considering the use of soft drugs. Therefore, The Monument holds a tolerance policy when it comes to the use of such drugs. This means that soft drug use is not strictly prohibited in the smoking area of the hotel. It is however, not allowed to; smoking soft drugs inside or in front of the hotel, prepare soft drugs to be smoked in the common areas of the hotel. Where staff believe this rule has been disrespected, the guests booking will be terminated, with no obliged refund.
  8. Hard drugs; All hard drugs are strictly forbidden! In the case that a guest is seen with or using hard drugs, or when reasonable suspicion has been raised regarding this clause, the booking will be terminated with no refund.
  9. Extra Guests; Bringing extra guests into the hotel is strictly prohibited. When this rule is broken, the guest will be charged the full price for the extra person.

Groups

  1. Definition Any reservation with +4 individual guests is considered a group reservation. The same terms & conditions apply as for all bookings, according to our full terms and conditions - with the following additions:
  2. Confirmation & Payment The confirmation invoice you have received from us does not act as proof of reservation but as an offer. Your option becomes a confirmed reservation when payment has been completed no later than max. 30 days before check-in date.
  3. Damages For any damage to or soiling of our property provably incurred by members of a group we reserve the right to charge repair or cleaning costs to individual members of the group or the reservation holder.
  4. Room Allocation and Pricing We reserve the right to allocate the beds and rooms in our properties to the best possible fit, or as we see reasonable. We do not offer accommodation for groups in the same room with individual guests, as this may cause misunderstandings and inconvenience with all parties involved
  5. Cancellation Free/refunded cancellation for the entire reservation is possible until 30 days before checkin date. Cancellation between 30 and 15 days before check-in date results in a %50 cancellation fee on the total amount. For cancellations requested 15 days before check-in date or later there is no possibility for a refund. Refunded cancellation for individual beds of a group reservation is not possible, however the amount for the city tax surcharge can be adapted when you arrive with less guests than planned.
  6. Force Majeure Cancellations reasoned with Force Majeure or higher powers do not pose an exception to the cancellation policy defined above. This includes any rules or regulations concerning COVID-19 or any other diseases, travel restrictions, local, national or global restrictions. All cancellations made for any imaginable reasons (including pandemic or disease related) abide to the deadline for eligible refunds until 30 days prior to check-in.
  7. Online reservations; The Monument does not accept reservations for more than 4 people via our affiliated booking websites (for example, booking.nl) as The Monument cannot guarantee compliant room allocation. When a guest has made a group reservation through an affiliated site, the guest may be asked to cancel the reservation in order to contact The Monument directly. Once The Monument has made this request, it is up to the guest to follow this procedure, The Monument holds no responsibility to track the status of this and will proceed with the group booking when contacted directly.

For any questions regarding these terms & conditions, please contact the reception staff at The Monument Hotel.
