Arrival and departure

What happens when I arrive very late on my planned day of arrival?

Don't worry. Many hotels allow late check-in. To be sure, we recommend enquiring directly with the hotel to find out until what time the reception will be open on the evening of arrival.

What do I need for checking in at the hotel?

The main traveler requires a valid identity card or passport. In addition, many hotels require a valid credit card as collateral. In some hotels the security deposit can be paid by cash or debit card. If you have further questions, please contact the hotel directly.

Can I extend my stay?

Of course. Please make an additional booking on roomsXXL.uk.

Cancelation

How do I cancel a booking?

Please log in on roomsXXL.uk under "My booking" using your booking code and your last name. You can then conveniently proceed with your cancelation online.

How do I get a refund after cancelation?

In the case of reimbursable offers, the refundable amount will be directly credited back to your credit card. You need to do nothing except canceling your booking.

What does it mean when a cancelation date displayed in a booking lies in the past?

If, e.g. when booking on 12/15/2013 under cancelation it says "cancelation possible until Friday, 12/13/2013 12pm (CET)", this means that the deadline for canceling free of charge has already passed. Thus, a cancelation of the hotel stay will not return a full refund.
