A clean, safe and friendly experience

House Rules & Policies

The following House Rules & Policies have been established based on industry standards, management and operational procedures, and our personal experience of owning and operating Galeria River since 2012. These House Rules & Policies are considered a part of our reservation agreement with you. By booking, you agree to abide by all of our House Rules & Policies, terms and conditions, and procedures. We have established these House Rules to promote our guests' awareness and safety and ensure their enjoyment while staying in Galeria River.

ARRIVAL AND DEPARTURE

 

CHECK-IN

Check-in time is from 14:00 until 20:00.

 

Arrivals after 20:00 are not possible, so we kindly ask you to revise your travel plans, if needed, and arrive on time. Should you fail to check in within this timeframe, your reservation will be regarded as a no show.

 

Arrivals before 14:00 are always on request and subject to availability, but we will do our best to accommodate your request. Please make sure to contact us before your arrival date to ensure a smooth check-in.

 

We will do our best to honour special requests (such as a specific floor or room number, extra beds, crib, etc.) upon arrival. However, we cannot guarantee in advance the availability of these items.

 

  • Upon arrival at our guesthouse you will be asked to provide identification (Identity Card / Passport / Driver’s License) for each person staying overnight, minors included.

 

CHECK-OUT

Check-out is up to 11:00.

 

However, if you need a later check-out, contact us before arrival, or during your stay, and we will do our best to accommodate your request. If a later check-out should not be possible, you are welcome to leave your luggage at the Front Desk and retrieve it at a later time.

 

  • Front Desk official hours

    Please note that the Front Desk is generally open from 10:00 until 20:00 during summertime and from 12:00 until 20:00 during wintertime. At our discretion, we might close the Front Desk earlier than 20:00 or alter the working hours.

 

PARKING

 

Because Galeria River is located in Ljubljana’s historical centre, a car-free zone, we do not own a parking area. However, parking is possible on the streets and parking spaces nearby.

 

The nearest secured parking space is just 250 m away from Galeria River – NUK II. It is located on Emonska street by the Square Of The French Revolution, close to the National and University Library. Parking costs 1,20 EUR/hour (day tariff from 7h to 19h) and 1,80 EUR/night (night tariff from 19h to 7h).

 

Parking is also possible on the streets of Ljubljana. Grudnovo nabrežje is approximately 400m away from Galeria River, by the banks of the Ljubljanica river. It costs 0,50 EUR/hour/max 6 hours (day tariff from 7h to 19h) and, it is free on Saturdays and Sundays. If you will be parking on the streets, please do so only on white marked parking spots and not on the blue or yellow ones. Furthermore, please note that street parking does not allow full payment in advance, but has to be renewed every day.

 

ROOM OCCUPANCY, CHILDREN, AND EXTRA BED POLICY

 

ROOM OCCUPANCY

The general occupancy is 1-2 persons per room. Extra beds for a third or fourth occupant are allowed in all room types (surcharge applies) except for the Economy Double Room and Studio Apartment. Reservations of extra beds must be arranged before arrival and are only final when confirmed by our guesthouse.

 

CHILDREN

All children up to 2 years old stay free of charge when using the existing bedding or baby crib. All children from 3 to 12 years old pay an additional 15,00 EUR/child/night when using the existing bedding or an extra bed. Individuals above the age of 12 are considered adults by our guesthouse. An adult person in a room is charged 30,00 EUR/night for using an extra bed.

 

These costs are not calculated in the room rate and will be charged extra.

 

EXTRA BEDS AND TWIN BEDS

The maximum capacity of extra beds/baby cribs in a room is one. Any extra bed or baby crib is upon request and must be confirmed by our guesthouse. Baby cribs are allowed in all room types except for the Economy Double Room.

 

In principle, all rooms come with double beds for double or single-use. However twin-bedded rooms are also available with the addition of an extra bed, on request. Please note that reservations of twin rooms are only final when confirmed by our guesthouse.

 

GUARANTEED RESERVATIONS

 

To guarantee your reservation you will be asked for your credit card details to perform a pre-authorisation seven days before the arrival date.

 

Pre-authorisation is a type of credit check. We use it to ensure that the credit card is valid and that there are sufficient funds to cover all or part of the reservation costs. With the pre-authorisation, the amount of the reservation is »held« as unavailable for a certain period.

Please note that the pre-authorization amount is not held by our property or by our authorising bank but it’s held on your card by your own issuing bank. The amount is released automatically by the online payment processor after seven days. However, the actual release period can take anywhere between seven (7) and up to fourteen (14) days to clear in your account. If not, you will need to contact your home issuing bank.

 

No reservations shall be confirmed without a pre-authorisation as a proper guarantee. If you do not possess a credit card, we can alternatively prepare a pro forma invoice and send it to you via e-mail. In this case, the payment is made by bank transfer before your arrival.

 

PAYMENT METHODS

 

PAYMENT METHOD 1 – LEAVE YOUR CREDIT CARD DETAILS

Upon booking, no deposit will be charged. We will ask for your credit card details only as a guarantee, to perform a pre-authorisation seven days before the arrival date.

PETS

 

We are a pet-friendly accommodation, so we are glad to welcome you and your furry friend to our guesthouse. The charge is 10,00 EUR/pet/night. The additional fee covers the extra time and effort for cleaning the room after your visit as the next guests may suffer from allergies.

  • Guests are responsible for all property damage resulting from their pets;
  • Any disturbances such as barking or meowing must be curtailed to ensure other guests are not inconvenienced;
  • Pets should not remain in the room alone and unguarded as the service staff may need to enter;
  • To ensure the safety of our staff guests must contact the Front Desk to arrange for a convenient time for servicing their room.

 

HOUSEKEEPING

 

To provide you with the best value possible, we offer housekeeping every second day — dusting, vacuuming, emptying trash, cleaning the bathroom, replenishing soap and toilet paper if needed. Housekeeping will be happy to make your beds if all personal items are removed. Towels are changed every second day, while bed linen is changed every fifth day.

 

Also, we take our commitment to the environment seriously, so we strive to freshen up without wasting our natural resources. Towards these goals, we change linens and towels according to how many nights you’re staying with us. You may, however, request fresh towels and linen whenever you want, regardless of our policy.

 

Important notice: general housekeeping may not be possible during the Covid-19 pandemic. Please read carefully our Covid-19 guidelines for more information.

 

ACCESS TO ROOMS AND SECURITY

 

ACCESS TO ROOMS

Our housekeeping staff and management reserve the right to enter a room for reasonable purposes, such as an emergency, housekeeping, maintenance, verify that the room, its furnishings, and mechanical equipment are intact, or to address or prevent a violation of our House Rules.

 

SECURITY

If needed a laptop-sized safe deposit box is available in each room for all guests, with instructions. Although the staff and management take responsible steps to ensure the safety and security of all guests and their possessions, guests retain final responsibility for their own safety, their belongings and security.

 

LUGGAGE STORAGE

 

We provide luggage storage free of charge for guests arriving at a time when rooms are not yet available and also for guests who have checked out but wish to collect their luggage later that same day.

Due to the Front Desk’s limited hours, we kindly ask you to arrange the storage of your luggage with the staff during check-in or the day before your scheduled check-out.

 

QUIET HOURS FROM 22:00 TO 8:00

 

Our rooms are located in a building with other privately owned units. Therefore, we kindly ask you to respect quiet hours. Televisions, voices, or other devices must be kept at a respectful low level at all times. Doors should be opened and closed quietly. No congregating in the hallway, running on the staircase, parties, loud disturbances and/or noise-nuisance are allowed or tolerated on these premises to ensure we can protect the property and our guests at all times. In the event of a disturbance, one polite request (warning) will be given to reduce the noise. If our request is not followed, you will be asked to leave our premises without a refund.

 

DAMAGE TO PROPERTY AND MANAGEMENT’S RIGHTS

 

Guests will be held responsible for any loss or damage to Galeria River property caused by themselves, their guests, or any person for whom they are responsible.

In case of damage caused to Galeria River by the guest, the guest is due to cover all damage costs caused to the guesthouse. Should the guest fail to voluntarily cover the costs of damage caused, we reserve the right to charge the credit card submitted at the time of booking.

Guests should conduct themselves in a respectable manner, not to provide any disturbances to other guests, and will not cause any nuisance or annoyance within Galeria River’s premises.

 

In case of breach of our Hotel Rules & Policies, we reserve the right to request any guest to vacate his/her room or other areas of the property without previous notice and without assigning any reason whatsoever, and the guest shall be bound to vacate when requested to do so. In case of default, we reserve the right to remove luggage and belongings from the room occupied by the guest.
