Terms and conditions

The following is important key information about check-in, other guests, practices, security, discretion, smoking, cleaning, cancellations, as well as photos and film.

The BDSM-Loft is LGBT friendly and we highly value tolerance, transparency, openness and honesty. At the same time discretion and trust are also highly important to us. Allow us a few clear words in order to avoid misunderstandings and to ensure a pleasant start to a great stay

Check-in
Check-in is at 18.00 on your arrival day (not " sometime from 6 pm onwards "). An early check-in at 15.00 is bookable as well as a late check-in with an individual time. Check-out is up until the maximum check-out time and is spontaneous and flexible according to your choice.

Please note: we have no reception. Therefore, your check-in explicitly takes place at the agreed time (fixed). For our check-in staff, unscheduled waiting times or even a second journey mean a significant and an additional amount of time. Sometimes following appointments force our check-in staff to leave again after 15 minutes waiting time. Then (unfortunately) a new check-in time must be agreed upon. For this, please use the mobile phone number which is stated in the reservation confirmation and imprint. Please note that an SMS can NOT be sent and can NOT be read because of call forwarding! A second check-in time is charged with €25.

Berlin is very large. Therefore please plan your arrival, your train journey, your flight times, etc. in such a way that you can be at the check-in punctually and on time.

Guests

A change of guests, multiple persons and visitors (also temporary) are not permitted in the apartment. Unannounced guests (whether " just to say hello", "just looking" or "just collecting guests or only for a drink" or overnight etc.) are charged 100€ per calendar day per person.

If you would like to come to the BDSM-Loft spontaneously, please send us an email to info@bdsm-loft.com and give us the number of guests (max. 4 extra people). Please understand that anyone unable to send us an email, is not understandable for us. Any additional person who visits unannounced will be billed at 60€ per visit (per day or per night, as per your booking)

Practices
Safety and hygiene have a very high priority for us and our future guests. Please take note that pets, drug usage, wet play (urine), Coprophilia (usually know as scat or caviar), usage of wax and any persons entering the apartment under the age of 18 years are strictly not permitted. Additionally, please also respect our non-smoking guests. Smoke only in the designated smoking area. Not adherence to these conditions will result a penalty of 200€ and is non-negotiable!

Safety
For reasons of safety, we have a few rules that we would like to inform you of. Trust, understanding, consideration and knowledge of the wishes of your partner are the basis for passionate games. Additionally, we advise you to take note of the safety-mechanisms and measures in this location, as well as agreeing a safety word with your partner. The equipment is only suitable for use for a maximum of 120kg. For personal and equipment damages from usage of equipment with a higher weight than allowed, the guest is liable.

The foyer is equipped with a security camera for the safety of our guests and the apartment. The security camera is located inside the property but is not located in the booked apartment area. The security camera video recordings are deleted 24 hours after the guest departs.

Discretion
For reasons of discretion for our neighbours and also for future guests, we kindly remind you that entering and leaving the apartment is only allowed in civil clothing. Thank you for your understanding in this matter.

Smoking
At the BDSM-Loft you don´t need to stand outside to smoke. The designated area for smoking is the room between the kitchen and the main room and is only permitted in this area. Please do not smoke in other areas of the apartment as this will set off the networked fire alarms. Thank you for your understanding.

Cancellations
In the unfortunate event that you have to cancel your stay, please note that the following cancellation fees apply:
4 weeks before your arrival date that cancellation fees are 100%. With a cancellation more than 4 weeks before your arrival date, your down payment is used as the cancellation fee. For a re-booking up to 4 weeks before your arrival date, 50% of your down payment goes towards administration costs. A re-booking within 4 weeks of your arrival date will be treated as a cancellation and processed as a new booking.
Sometimes, life gets in the way of our plans through third parties or illness, therefore cancellation insurance is advisable. In order to cover cancellation costs, there are a number of insurance agencies online with inexpensive offers who specialise in cancellation insurance. The cancellation is to be sent via email to (info@bdsm-loft.com) from the email account from which the booking request was made. Please include your name, booking ID number and the dates of your booking. We (the hosts) reserve the right to cancel any current booking with special reason, e.g. water or fire damage, insolvency or other reason. In the case of such a special situation, the guest will naturally be reimbursed the payment for the cancelled dates.

Photos and Film

Photos and film are naturally allowed for your own private use. When you are posting your private photos in forums or make them available in any given fashion to public viewing, then we kindly ask that you name our domain “BDSM-Loft.com”. Commercial filming and photos are exclusively permitted after requesting permission from the hosts.
