6. Check-in

Our guests are kindly asked to tell us with at least 2 working day notice the expected arrival time in Venice and any other useful detail such as flight or train numbers etc. to enable Mitwohnzentrale Venezia s.a.s. to organize the schedule for the welcome service and to arrange a meeting point. The clients should provide a mobile number (working in Italy) as well. In lack of this information, Mitwohnzentrale Venezia s.a.s. will not be responsible for any failure or delay in the welcoming service; this because the apartments do not have a fixed reception (like hotels have) and every single check-in must therefore be well arranged and organized in advance.

We ask our guests to call the person in charge of the check-in (whose name and mobile number will be given to the client in time) as soon as they arrive at the airport, train station or car park, to confirm the arrival and to agree a time for the meeting. Usually the meeting point is the closest public transport station to the apartment: the staff of Mitwohnzentrale Venezia s.a.s. will advise the best way to get to the meeting point.

At the agreed time an employee of Mitwohnzentrale Venezia s.a.s. will welcome the guests, hand over the keys, show him the apartment and take note of the counters for gas, electricity and telephone. At check-in the guest will sign the contract and all necessary documents for the registration, will pay the security deposit and the balance owed.

The apartment is delivered between 3.00 p.m. and 20.00 p.m. at the arrival day and must be left no later than 10.00 am at the departure day. Apartments are delivered between 9.00 a.m. and 3.00 p.m. if they are free in the morning.

According to the availability of the apartments and our staff schedule, other timings can be arranged with the following additional costs:

  • For check-in 08.00 pm and 10.00 pm:   30 Euros
  • For check-in 10.00 pm and 00.00 am:   40 Euros
  • For check-in 00.00 am and 01.00 am:   50 Euros
  • Please note that check-ins after 1.00 a.m. are NOT possible! Thank you for your understanding.

Check-in time means the moment you will reach the apartment, NOT the moment you arrive at the airport, train station or car park.

7. Check-out

At check-in, or during the stay, the guest will agree with Mitwohnzentrale Venezia s.a.s. the day and time for the check-out, which anyway can’t be later that 10.30 a.m. on the departure day. At the agreed time an employee of Mitwohnzentrale Venezia s.a.s. will come to the apartment to recollect the keys and to do the checking and payment of the utilities (gas, electricity and telephone). He will check the general state of the flat, to see if something got broken or damage; he will pay attention to the cleaning as well (please, read paragraph 10).
