These services consist, in particular, of allowing the use against payment of hotel bedrooms and other premises such as those for conferences, banquets and/or other events, as well as all further offerings and services of the Hotel associated therewith. The Hotel is entitled to have its services performed by third parties.

- The GTC of the Contractual Partner shall not apply even where the Hotel fails to expressly reject these. Any conflicting statements by the Contractual Partner making reference to its GTC are hereby rejected.
II. Contract conclusion

Grand Hotel GmbH shall be free to accept the contract in writing, verbally, in text form (by e-mail or fax) or ultimately by the provision of services.
- If the contracting party enters into a so-called contingency contract, the contracting party shall be liable for any and all damage culpably caused by the end-user.
- The subletting, re-letting or free-of-charge use of the rented rooms by third parties as well as their use for purposes other than accommodation shall require the Hotel’s express permission. On request, the Hotel may, at its own discretion, grant an exception in writing.

- Booked rooms will be made available to the Contractual Partner from 2 p.m. on the date of arrival. Unless otherwise agreed, the Hotel reserves the right to allocate the room to others after 6 p.m. without the Contractual Partner being able to derive any rights or claims whatsoever.

The final number (guaranteed number) of participants must be communicated to and confirmed by the Hotel. Said number is a guaranteed minimum number of participants that will be charged to the Contractual Partner. If more people take part than agreed, then the organiser will be charged for the actual amount of participants on the day.
- Where the agreed time of commencement of an event is moved, the Hotel shall be entitled to invoice the contract partner for all additional costs thereby incurred.
- Reserved rooms shall be available to the Contractual Partner only within the period of time agreed in writing.

- To prevent damage, the affixing and installation of decorative material or other items must be agreed with the Hotel in advance. Exhibits and other objects brought in must be removed at the end of the event. Should the Contractual Partner fail to comply with this provision, the Hotel shall be entitled to have them removed and stored at the Contractual Partner’s expense. The Contractual Partner shall dispose of all transport packaging, outer packaging and all other packaging materials at its own expense. Should the Contractual Partner leave packaging behind after the end of the event, this may be disposed of at the Contractual Partner’s expense. All items such as decorative material brought in in connection with the event must meet all relevant statutory requirements.
- The Hotel is not insured for items brought in. The requisite insurance cover shall be taken out solely by the Contractual Partner.

The power consumed will be invoiced at the currently applicable electricity prices as charged to the Hotel by the power supplier. The Hotel shall be free to charge a flat rate fee at its discretion. Any faults or defects in the Hotel’s technical equipment caused by such connection shall be charged to the Contractual Partner.

V. Provision of services / Prices / Payments / Offsetting / Assignment
- The Contractual Partner is obligated to pay the Hotel’s prices that apply or have been agreed for the room and the other services received by the Contractual Partner. This shall also apply to any other expenses incurred for the services arranged by the Hotel for the Contractual Partner. All prices are quoted inclusive of VAT and duties at the statutory rate in force at the time. Increases in taxes and duties shall be borne by the Contractual Partner.
If the period between conclusion of contract and initial provision of services exceeds 120 days, the Hotel shall be entitled to increase prices by a maximum of 15%. Subsequent alterations to services may lead to changes in prices. The Hotel is entitled to request an advance payment or provision of security from the contract partner on conclusion of contract of up to 100% of the total amount due by the Contractual Partner. The amount of the advance payment and payment dates may be specified in the contract.
- Amounts due to the Hotel are payable without deduction within 14 days upon receipt of the relevant invoice. An invoice shall be deemed to have been received by the invoice recipient at the latest 3 days after being sent, except where earlier delivery can be proved. A default interest of 12% p.a. shall be charged in case of payment arrears.
- The preparation of a consolidated invoice shall not release the contract partner from the duty to pay individual invoices on time. Default of payment, even of an individual invoice, entitles the Hotel to withhold all future services and make the performance of such services contingent on the provision of a security covering up to 100% of the outstanding payment.
- For each reminder sent after default occurs, the Hotel may charge a reminder fee in the amount of € 10.00. In principle, invoices are payable immediately in cash or by credit card. The Hotel reserves the right to reject cheques, credit cards or payment in foreign currencies. Vouchers from tour operators will only be accepted if a credit agreement exists with the company concerned or if corresponding advance payments have been made. No refunds will be provided for services that were not used.
- The Contractual Partner may only offset a claim against the Hotel if its claim is undisputed or has been upheld by final judgement. This equally applies to the Contractual Partner exercising a right of retention in relation to its own claims. Claims and other rights may only be assigned upon written consent of the Hotel.

The Hotel will store the items for a time period of 12 months and charge a reasonable fee for doing so.

- All claims of the Contractual Partner, to the extent that the latter is a consumer, against the Hotel arising out of or in connection with the contract shall lapse after one year starting from the end of the year in which the claim arose and the Contractual Partner became aware of the circumstances giving rise to the claim, or would have become aware but for gross negligence. Consumers are subject to a statutory warranty period.
IX. 9 Additional provisions for package tour contracts
- Where, in addition to providing food and accommodation, the Hotel is obligated to organise a leisure programme itself as a free service, this shall constitute a so-called package tour contract.
- The Contractual Partner may not assert any claims due to changes to, variations in or curtailments of individual services within the scope of a package tour contract which become necessary subsequent to conclusion of contract if such changes, variations or curtailments are merely insignificant.
- If the services that have been agreed upon and provided are not used by the Contractual Partner, the total fee may not be reimbursed or reduced.
