*** This property has a very appealing price (lower than the market's average) because it is for sale. All guests will have to allow access for viewings for potential buyers, but the disruption will be kept at a minimum. We will inform guests about timings for these as soon as possible in advance.

Please note that the water system is different from a regular one - the boat has a calorifier tank that is smaller compared to domestic systems. Please allow some time between showers for the water to heat up. Also, our guests can use the marina facilities which offer virtually unlimited hot water.

Wifi is provided by the marina and the speed may vary, although usually the signal strength is good.

ALTIDO London will be in touch to offer you assistance with airport transfers and in-stay services, such as in-stay cleans and linen changes. If there is anything that has been missed out or if you have any questions at all, please don't hesitate to get in touch. All feedback is appreciated.

Please note that а refundable damage deposit of GBP 3000 is mandatory and should be paid via card and upon check-in. We inspect the property after you check out; if no damage we refund the deposit within 7 days via bank transfer. Please provide us with your bank details when you book with us.

House Rules
ALTIDO wants you to have a fantastic stay, and we encourage you to see the space as a home away from home—treating it as though it is yours! There are, of course, a few things we politely ask guests to note before their arrival and throughout their stay:
- Strictly no smoking, no parties, no pets.
- Dispose of rubbish appropriately.
- Keep the property clean and tidy.
- Whilst washing up and stripping the beds at check-out would be appreciated, it is by no means expected.
- Quiet hours are between 10 PM and 9 AM. So please keep the noise down and respect the neighbours in the building.
- Please remember to close all windows and doors when leaving.
- To ensure the safety of our current and future guests, we ask all guests to complete our online check-in form and to provide a valid form of identification.
- Careful attention to the keys is extremely important. Guests are responsible for any additional costs resulting from misplaced keys or locksmith call-outs.
