Arrival and Departure

Since you have rented an apartment located in a private building, there is no on-site 24-hour reception rather a check-in appointment is necessary to receive keys. A complimentary check-in appointment can be scheduled between 15:00 and 20:00 as indicated on the property page and check-out time is no later than 10:00 on the day of departure. Failure to vacate the property by the standard check-out time without prior consent will result in an automatic extra night charge. We will try to accommodate your earlier arrival and later departure based on availability and at a surcharge. All check-

in appointments after 20:00, will incur a late check-in fee between €25,00 and €50,00 depending upon the apartment selected and the time of arrival. The complimentary check-in time is provided on the property page. Please note that we do not accommodate arrivals after midnight.

Based on your arrival details, including flight or train number, which must be provided no less than 5 days prior to arrival, you will be provided a designated check-in appointment directly at the apartment. As a rule of thumb, from the airport, clients arriving by taxi or in private transfer, will be provided a designated appointment time one hour and a half after their scheduled airport arrival while clients arriving in public transportation (train or shuttle bus) will be provided a designated check-in appointment two and a half hours from the scheduled airport arrival time. Please respect your appointment provided as it has been organized based on availability and other guest arrivals.

It is the guest's responsibility to update the check-in staff of any delays including changes in airport arrival time, luggage claim problems, transportation issues, etc. Failure to provide at least one hour notice of any delays will result in an additional check-in charge of 25,00€ and the guest must contact the check-in staff directly to reschedule the check-in appointment. A few days prior to the guest's arrival, the guest will receive a check-in reminder with all the details and contact information for the appointment.

Guests may request luggage storage at the apartment based on availability. Extra charges will apply. Alternatively, upon request, we will provide luggage storage suggestions near the apartment.

*Every guest must be registered with the local authorities as required by Paragraph 109 of R.D. 18.6.1931 n. 773. To satisfy this requirement, all guests are required to provide a copy of their passports by the time of check-in. Alternatively, guests may send a copy of their passports in advance to passports@romefortheholidays.com.
