In addition, washing or cleaning pets in the shower, bathtub, sink or other such places in the room/hotel is not allowed.

Separate charges will be made for any damage such as scratching or biting on, for example, furniture, accessories, doors. We ask all bookers who bring their pets (with emphasis on dogs) to Different Hotel to provide a deposit of 250 euros or a credit card guarantee.
