Check-in is from 3pm, but if you arrive earlier it should be possible to drop bags off after 11 am. Also early check-in may be possible depending on the cleaning schedule. Please contact the hosts in advance to make arrangements.

If you need to leave bags in the city, Waverley Station has a left luggage facility.

Keybox

  3. Shut the box and spin the numbers to lock it.
  4. Use one key to open the courtyard door and the other key to open the front door of the apartment (on the first floor).
  5. You should use the keys inside the apartment (on the lounge table) and replace the keys in the keybox.

Guests should check out by 11 am, but later check-out may be possible by prior arrangement – please let us know as early as possible if you want a late check-out. When you leave please lock the door and drop the keys into the mailbox for Flat 5.
