  1. Cancellation by the customer

1. The customer has a right of withdrawal only in accordance with the statutory provisions or on the basis of contractual agreements. If, in individual cases, when the contract was concluded between the hotel and the customer, a date for free withdrawal from the contract was agreed in writing, the customer can only withdraw from the contract up to this date without triggering payment or damage claims by the hotel.

3. On the agreed day of departure, the rooms must be vacated and made available to the hotel by 11:00 a.m. at the latest. After that, the hotel can charge 80% of the agreed accommodation price for the use of the room beyond the contract until 4:00 p.m. and from 6:00 p.m. even 100% due to the delayed vacating of the room. This does not justify contractual claims by the customer. He is free to prove that the hotel has suffered no or less damage. Further damage claims of the hotel remain unaffected.

4. The subletting or re-letting of the rooms provided and their use for purposes other than accommodation require the prior written consent of the hotel. If this has been granted, this does not justify the customer’s right of withdrawal.


  1. Right of Refusal and Referral

  1. Hotel Liability

1. No-fault liability of the hotel is excluded according to § 536 a BGB

3. In principle, the hotel is only liable for financial losses of the customer in the event of intent or gross negligence. Notwithstanding this, the hotel is also liable for simple negligence in the event of pecuniary loss if it has culpably violated an essential contractual obligation; in this case, however, the liability for damages is limited to the foreseeable, typically occurring damage.

4. If the customer has been provided with a parking space or garage space for a fee, on their own property or on someone else’s property, the hotel will not take care of the parked vehicle and valuables stored in it, i.e. no custody agreement will be concluded. The hotel is therefore not liable for the loss of or damage to vehicles parked or maneuvering on the hotel property and their contents, unless the hotel caused the damage intentionally or through gross negligence.

5. The above limitations of liability apply to all claims for damages, regardless of their legal basis.

6. All claims against the hotel generally become time-barred after one year from the beginning of the knowledge-dependent regular limitation period of Section 199, Paragraph 1 of the German Civil Code. Claims for damages become statute-barred after five years, regardless of knowledge of the circumstances on which the claim is based and of the debtor. The shortening of the limitation period does not apply to claims based on an intentional or grossly negligent breach of duty by the hotel or culpable injury to life, limb or health of the customer.


  1. Final Provisions

1. Changes or additions to the contract and these terms and conditions should be made in writing.

2. The place of performance and payment is the hotel’s registered office.

3. The exclusive place of jurisdiction, including for disputes over checks and bills of exchange, is the hotel’s registered office in commercial transactions. This also applies if the customer does not have a general place of jurisdiction in Germany.

4. German law applies exclusively. The application of UN sales law and internal private law is excluded.

5. Should individual provisions of these General Terms and Conditions be or become invalid or unenforceable, this shall not affect the validity of the remaining provisions. The invalid or unenforceable provision shall be replaced by a valid and enforceable provision whose effects come closest to the economic objective pursued by the contracting parties with the invalid or unenforceable provision. The above provisions apply accordingly in the event that the contract proves to be incomplete. In addition, the statutory provisions apply.

General Terms and Conditions (GTC) of the restaurant Curious NINE

Our entire team makes every effort to ensure that every single guest can have a wonderful time with us. In order for this to succeed, we ask for your understanding that we only make reservations and catering in our restaurant on the basis of the following general terms and conditions:

1. Scope

The following regulations apply to all reservations and hospitality in our restaurant CURIIOUS NINE (Soho Hotelbetriebsgesellschaft mbH, Marie Curie Straße 7-9, 76829 Landau).

By making a reservation on the basis of these regulations, you also agree to their validity for all follow-up transactions, i. H. any future use of the services we offer. This applies to future reservations regardless of whether they are made verbally (e.g. by telephone), by email or in any other way.

2. Reservations and cancellations

Since our restaurant only has a limited number of seats and the dishes we offer are always freshly and elaborately prepared, we cannot offer great flexibility when allocating and reserving the available seats. In particular, in the case of larger reservations, we are regularly forced to turn away other guests. Against this background, the damage we incur as a result of non-compliance or inappropriately short-term cancellation of reservations is considerable. We therefore ask for your understanding that we reserve the right to assert claims for this damage in accordance with the following regulations. Please also understand that we will not notify you again in such a case.

2.1 Reservations are binding with regard to the reserved time and the number of reserved seats. However, you can cancel all or part of your reservation up to 12 hours before the reserved time without incurring any costs. For larger groups (from 6 people) a free cancellation can only be made up to 24 hours before the reserved time. The same (free cancellation only up to 48 hours before the reserved time) applies – regardless of the number of people – to reservations for “specials” we offer (e.g. Valentine’s Day, Christmas parties, New Year’s Eve or exclusive events).

2.2 If a cancellation is not made by the time stated in Section 2.1 at the latest, we are entitled to charge a flat-rate compensation of EUR 30.00 for each unused or canceled seat. The same applies if the reserved spaces are not used at the agreed time, i. H. the guests do not appear or do not appear in the announced number.

2.3 If you are not responsible for the late cancellation or non-use of the reserved places, we are not entitled to claim compensation. In addition, you are always free to prove that we have not suffered any damage as a result of the late cancellation or non-appearance or that this is significantly lower than the compensation according to Section 2.2.

2.4 If the reserved seats are not taken within 20 minutes of the reserved time at the latest (i.e. the guests who have been announced do not appear), we are entitled to allocate the seats to someone else. Sections 2.2 and 2.3 also apply in this case. In this case, however, we must and will allow the income that we generate by allocating the places to other participants to be offset against the compensation in accordance with Section 2.2.

3. Exclusive Booking

The exclusive booking of our restaurant (for closed events) is only possible on the basis of an individual menu offer, which we will be happy to submit to you if there is availability.

4. Payment

Unless otherwise agreed, the following terms of payment apply:

4.1 Payments are to be made in euros.

4.2 As an alternative to paying in cash, we offer the option of paying by EC card for amounts of at least EUR 25.00. From an amount of at least EUR 50.00 we also accept payment by the following credit cards: MASTERCARD, VISA, AMEX. Other cards are not accepted.


The following conditions apply to the redemption of vouchers:

5.1 A voucher can only be used to pay for the food and drinks offered and consumed in our restaurant. A cash payment of the voucher amount is not possible. We ask for your understanding.

5.2 A voucher can only be used once for payment (up to the amount of the total amount shown therein) and has a legal validity of 3 years.

5.3 Unfortunately, we cannot pay out any remaining balances (in the event that the price of the consumed food and drinks does not fully reach the total amount shown on the voucher) in cash!


The following conditions apply to our liability for damages and reimbursement of expenses under contract or other legal grounds:

6.1 We are fully liable in accordance with the statutory provisions for damage caused by us or our employees intentionally or through gross negligence.

6.2 We are only liable for damage caused negligently by us or our employees if

6.2.1 essential contractual obligations are violated. These are obligations, the fulfillment of which enables the proper execution of the contract and on the observance of which our customers regularly rely and may rely. Also essential are obligations that arise from the nature of the contract and the violation of which jeopardizes the achievement of the purpose of the contract.

6.2.2 Obligations to respect the rights, objects of legal protection and interests of customers are violated and our performance can no longer be expected of them.

6.3 Our liability in the cases specified in Section 6.2 is limited to the foreseeable damage typical of the contract. In all other cases we are not liable for simple negligence.

6.4 The limitations of liability according to Sections 6.2 and 6.3 do not apply to damage resulting from injury to life, limb or health. They also do not apply to claims under the Product Liability Act, due to fraudulently concealed defects or from a guarantee, or for all other cases in which the statutory liability rules are mandatory.
