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 our Living Hotels, you now have the possibility in selected hotels, 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 detergents, on the other hand, Living Hotels donates 4,00 EUR to a non-profit organisation for every cleaning not carried out.
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, there is also the possibility to waive room cleaning at check-in. Please contact our colleagues at the reception desk directly for this purpose when you arrive at the hotel.

Donation handover animal shelter Berlin – August 2023
In October 2022, the pilot project “Cleaning Waiver” started in the Berlin Living Hotels. Through the decision of our guests to forgo cleaning and thanks to the great support of the Berlin teams, we were able to donate 17,948 EUR to the Tierheim Berlin from October 2022 to August 2023.
Due to these excellent results, the project will gradually be introduced in all our locations. The selection of the beneficiary organisations is made by the respective teams on site.
*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.
