Skip your daily room cleaning for a good cause

For each waived room cleaning, Living Hotels donates 4 EUR to a non-profit organization

As a guest of Living Hotels you now have the possibility, when booking a hotel rate with daily cleaning, to waive the daily room cleaning including bed linen and towel change for a good cause.* On the one hand, you protect our environment due to a reduction of used water and detergents and on the other hand, Living Hotels donates 4,00 EUR to a non-profit organisation for every cleaning not performed.

This is how it works:

  • When booking via our website, select the "Do something good for free" package in the second or third step "Add-Ons". The cleaning waiver (including the waiver of bed linen, towel/bath towel change) is then automatically added to your booking.
  • If you book directly with us, please inform our staff by phone or e-mail that you wish to waive the daily room cleaning.
  • If you have booked via other platforms, you also have the option of waiving room cleaning at check-in. Please contact our colleagues at the reception desk directly.

*This voluntary offer is only bookable for hotel rates with daily room cleaning and only from two consecutive nights. If you book longer than 7 nights with us, a one-time cleaning will take place on the 7th day of your stay. Unfortunately, there is no possibility to waive cleaning only on individual days at the moment. Following your check-out, a final cleaning of the room will of course take place.
