These terms & conditions determine the rights and obligations of AboutAnyHotel.com and the client for the reservation of hotel accommodations and other services provided by AboutAnyHotel.com. Websites are operated by AboutAnyHotel.com, see article 6.6.
2.1 On the websites www.AboutAnyHotel.com, we provide information concerning the hotels available: hotel classification, comfort and features, level of equipment and rates supplied by each hotel. A visitor of the website (or: guest) can make a reservation request for a specific hotel by filling in the reservation forms on the website. Filling in and submitting the reservation forms constitutes an irrevocable commitment of the guest to accept the reservation and these terms & conditions. The reservation can not be disputed except by abiding to the terms of cancellation as stated in Article 4.
2.2 Once the client has reserved, a confirmation page recapping all the reservation details will be displayed.
2.3 Reservations are processed by our customer service agents. During office hours, reservations are processed immediately; however, confirmations may be delayed as we are subject to response delay from the hotels (hotel closed, reservation manager absent or unavailable).
2.4 AboutAnyHotel.com confirms the reservation by email or otherwise if requested stating the reservation details, name of hotel, booking dates, number of persons, hotel address and phone number, etc. Upon sending a confirmation email to the guest, the reservation is fully guaranteed by AboutAnyHotel.com. Should the hotel chosen by the guest have no vacancies for the required room type and dates, and the guest has indicated on the reservation form to accept an alternative hotel, AboutAnyHotel.com will do its best to make the reservation at the alternative hotel as indicated by the guest. The guest accepts the reservation at the alternative hotel.
3.1 The confirmation email contains a statement with the total amount due. For some hotels the client needs to make an advance deposit which is a small part of the total reservation value. For other hotels, no advance deposit is necessary. In this case the client pays the complete amount to the hotel once he or she arrives. If we require you, the client, to pay an advance deposit as the guarantee of your reservation, it will be clearly written in the confirmation which amount needs to be paid in advance. The remainder is to be paid in the hotel once you arrive. The advance deposit is charged to your credit card by AboutAnyHotel.com after the reservation is confirmed.

The client making a reservation must be entitled to use the credit card. AboutAnyHotel.com shall not be held responsible for payments made by persons without such entitlement. The remainder of the total amount is payable in the hotel and it can be paid by any means (creditcard, cash, or otherwise) as far as is accepted by the hotel.
4.1 Cancelling a confirmed reservation is free of charge, except for any cancellation charges by the hotel. AboutAnyHotel.com does not charge cancellation fees unless specifically noted.
