Extra cleaning services can be provided by an agreed fee directly with the cleaning staff.

We do not supervise visitors and you are free to bring whomever you want, as long as you respect your fellow flatmates and the general rules (noise, etc). As to guests, the flat main bills are included and as such you’re not expected to entertain guests. We are flexible to the point we authorize guests since we receive the request with a 48h prior notice and with the payment of an extra fee.
