In respect of all bookings relating to apartments not operated by CITY SPACE, CITY SPACE acts as an introductory agent on behalf of our preferred suppliers. Your contract for such bookings will be with the actual preferred supplier. All such bookings will be also subject to the relevant preferred supplier’s conditions in addition to these conditions. The booker will be notified at the time of booking if further preferred supplier’s conditions will also apply.
We reserve the right to refuse, at our sole discretion, any booking you make with us. It is the responsibility of the booker to notify CITY SPACE at the time of booking of the names of the relevant guests and whether they are adults or minors. Bookings for accommodation require at least one full name for each apartment. For maximum occupancy in an apartment see Clause 8 below.
At CITY SPACE operated apartments, non-corporate bookings will not be accepted from any paying guests under the age of 21. Proof of identification and date of birth may be requested at check-in.

You are advised to ensure that you put in place appropriate travel insurance policies to cover cancellation, medical cover and cover for loss or damage to personal property during your stay.

Telephone bookings are confirmed only when CITY SPACE has accepted the booking in writing or by email and has taken payment in full. Payment in full is required at the time of booking, unless otherwise agreed in writing. Should payment not reach CITY SPACE within the required time CITY SPACE reserves the right to suspend or cancel any bookings made and any deposit paid may be forfeit.

We may pass your debit/credit card details to a third party to process any payments.
Where CITY SPACE is unable to confirm the initial requested accommodation, an alternative may be provided and an email or other notification will be sent to inform you of the details. CITY SPACE will endeavour to hold the reservation for 48 hours in order for you to signify acceptance by making payment in full.
As soon as your confirmation and invoice are received, please check the details carefully. If anything is not correct you should tell CITY SPACE immediately. However, we regret CITY SPACE cannot accept any liability if it is not notified of any inaccuracy in any documentation within 48 hours of it being sent out.

If any of these changes are material and are not acceptable, then you will be entitled to a full refund.
The rates we advertise are to the best of our knowledge correct at the date of publication but we reserve the right to change any rates from time to time. Rates can go up or down. Rates quoted are based on the rates prevailing at the time a booking is confirmed (in the currency requested). Once a booking has been confirmed CITY SPACE will not change the rate quoted unless you amend the booking or our cost of supplying the accommodation changes as a result of currency fluctuations.
As an agent for its preferred suppliers, CITY SPACE will pass on any rate increase in accordance with the conditions of the contract with your supplier as soon as we are made aware of the increase by your supplier.
3 Security Deposit
A Security deposit to cover any additional charges, including breakages, damages and additional cleaning incurred during your stay, may be taken at the time of booking or on arrival at the apartment. CITY SPACE reserves the right to deduct from the Security deposit, without further notice, all amounts chargeable under these Booking Conditions, including, further accommodation charges.

Additional charges will be deducted from any Security deposit held or from a debit/credit card supplied in settlement of any outstanding sums and after an inspection of the vacated apartment. CITY SPACE will provide the booker /guest with a breakdown of the additional charges where applicable. If additional charges are taken from the Security deposit the remainder will be refunded at the end of the guest’s stay to the person who paid the Security deposit.

At CITY SPACE operated apartments, additional charges include:
•Telephone Calls: Telephone calls are charged separately. It is the guest’s responsibility to pay all telephone call charges incurred during their stay in an apartment. Sometimes, telephone call charges are provided by a third party supplier. Where this arrangement exists, it is the guest’s responsibility to set up a charge account with the service provider direct (details available in the apartment).
•Broadband: Broadband is available in all apartment locations and where applicable will be charged for separately. Where broadband is offered, CITY SPACE will make every effort to ensure that the service is available at all times, but CITY SPACE cannot guarantee any internet or broadband connection availability. If there is a fault which is deemed by CITY SPACE to be associated with the user’s hardware or software, no support will be available. The weekly charge for broadband entitles usage of up to 1GB of data transfer per week. Usage over and above this level will be charged at £15 plus VAT per GB per week thereafter. Use of the internet is on the understanding that under no circumstances will CITY SPACE be held responsible for any actions that may arise from the use of a guest’s internet connection.

When the duration of the reservation is in excess of 28 days, a discretionary final cleaning charge of up to £100 plus VAT may be charged. In addition, if an apartment is deemed unfit for occupation, the booker /guest will be obliged to pay compensation to CITY SPACE for loss of revenues in addition to the costs of cleaning and repair.

Early check in/late check out cannot be guaranteed unless the booking is made from the night before arrival/for the night after departure. Key collection details will be provided to the booker prior to the check-in date. Many apartments operate unmanned receptions so access codes and other relevant details will be provided only after a booking is confirmed. It is then the booker’s responsibility to ensure that the guests have all the key, access codes and other relevant information, provided to them by CITY SPACE, to allow guests to access the apartments.
6 Changes and Cancellations
Once a booking has been confirmed by us, should you wish to change your booking, all requests for changes must be made in writing and CITY SPACE will do their best to help. Where changes can be made an administration fee of £25 plus VAT per booking will be payable to CITY SPACE once any change has been made together with any other resulting costs (for example any increase in price).
All changes of date are subject to availability. Should any change be rejected, the original booking will be re-instated. Name changes or child age changes will not incur any charges or administration fee.
•CITY SPACE’s cancellation policy is set out below, however, where CITY SPACE acts as an agent for a preferred supplier the cancellation determined by that supplier may differ from CITY SPACE’s own policy. The specific cancellation policy should be requested at the time of booking and will be stated on the guest's confirmation.
•Requests for cancellations and changes must be made by contacting CITY SPACE’s Reservation Team during office hours. Any cancellation or change notified directly to the Preferred Supplier will not be effective. Bookings not changed or cancelled through CITY SPACE will be subject to a 100% charge.

If you wish to cancel or change an extended booking (see “Extensions” below), you will be liable to pay the total charges for the extended period in accordance with the scale above. These charges apply to notification advised prior to arrival and/or during your stay.
CITY SPACE reserves the right to treat an early departure or reduction in the number of nights or apartments booked which results in a reduction in the overall charges payable as a cancellation.
CITY SPACE does not expect to have to make any changes to your booking however occasionally bookings have to be changed or cancelled or errors in information or other details corrected. CITY SPACE reserves the right to do so. If this does happen, CITY SPACE will contact you by telephone or email where reasonably possible to explain what has happened and inform you of the cancellation or change. If a change has to be made (and the change is not acceptable to you) or your booking has to be cancelled CITY SPACE will, if possible and as soon as is reasonably practical, offer you an alternative apartment (from the range advertised by CITY SPACE) of similar type and standard in a similar location for the same period. As the alternative property is likely to be operated by a different preferred supplier to that of the original apartment booked, the advertised cost of the alternative apartment will be payable. If the alternative apartment is advertised at a lower price, you will receive a refund (if you have already paid the total accommodation charges) of the price difference. If you do not wish to accept a change or any alternative apartment offered or CITY SPACE cannot offer you a suitable alternative apartment, you will be entitled to cancel your booking and receive a full refund of all monies paid to CITY SPACE unless this is the result of an Event beyond our Control – see Clause 10 below. You should tell CITY SPACE as soon as reasonably possible whether you wish to accept any change or alternative apartment offered or alternatively if you want a refund.
CITY SPACE defines a group as being three apartments or more being booked in the same location for similar dates. For group bookings, the minimum cancellation charges that will apply per group booking regardless of length of stay, are the same as for stays of 28+ nights as detailed above.
•If you wish to extend a stay, CITY SPACE requires notice in writing. Please give as much notice as possible in order to facilitate your request. All extensions are subject to availability and rate change. Failure to give CITY SPACE notice in writing of an intention to extend a stay may result in your apartment being booked by another guest.
•Where notice of intention to extend your stay has been given, CITY SPACE reserves the right to take all additional payments and charges from any credit/debit card used to make the original booking (plus any further deposit requirements). Where payment has been made by cheque or bank transfer, an invoice for the requested extended period will be sent to the billing address provided at the time of booking and payment must be made by return.
•No administration fee is payable when a booking is extended.

•The number of people permitted to occupy each apartment is limited to the number of beds. In some apartments extra beds can be provided and this will be at a charge to be agreed at the time of booking. If the number of people permitted to occupy an apartment is exceeded, CITY SPACE or the preferred supplier may refuse access to the accommodation and reserves the right to charge for additional apartments.
•You and your party must comply with any rules and regulations set by CITY SPACE, if the apartment is CITY SPACE operated, and/or the preferred supplier in relation to their apartments.
