When making a hotel booking, you are advised to check the terms and conditions of cancellation. All cancellations should be confirmed in writing and should comply with the terms set out by the establishment. In the event of the cancellation being received by the hotel before the agreed deadline, the client has nothing to pay.
If this date has gone by, the hotel is entitled to demand payment for the first night. If you simply do not turn up or decide to leave the hotel before the planned date, the hotel may collect the cost of the stay in part or in full.
