Yes. Example: Your flight arrives during nighttime from the 9th to the 10th. Officially the day 10th starts at midnight. If somebody else would check-in at day 9th he would be staying in this bed until midday of the 10th meaning that the bed is occupied from the 9th to the 10th leaving no vacancy for you. So to make sure that no other guest is staying in the bed reserved for you your rate starts at day 9th even if you officially arrive after midnight and day 10th has already begun.
Yes. Every room has air-conditioners that are turned on from 9 pm to 9 am, following ecological standards suggested by environmentalists. All rooms are also equipped with ceiling fans which can be optionally used by the guests.
As we are located only 5 km from the airport, it is more economic for you to get here by bus or taxi. The bus takes around 25 to 30 minutes. If you prefer to take a taxi, it will take around 10 to 15 minutes to get here. We suggest you to use the taxis waiting in front of the A-5 exit in the airport. Those are the cheaper ones.
