Frequently asked Questions
Is it possible to stay longer than 6 months or shorter than 1 month?
Our contracts expire automatically after 6 months. We will be happy to offer you another comparable apartment afterwards, if available. However, the apartment must be changed in any case and a new contract must be signed.
We offer shorter stays only in rare individual cases and upon request.
Can I terminate my contract early?
If you wish to terminate your contract prematurely, we will try to find a new tenant as quickly as possible. If we succeed in doing so, we will terminate your contract regardless of the specified terms or deadlines.
For utmost flexibility, we also offer open-ended contracts. These automatically extend for one month at a time (up to the maximum stay of 6 months), and can be terminated with 4 weeks' notice to the end or middle of each month.
Do you have apartments for 3 or more persons?
Unfortunately no. In our opinion, even the larger apartments are overcrowded with 3 occupants (whether adults or children). We do not want our guests having to "pile up" and therefore ask for your understanding that an occupancy with 3 persons or more is not possible.
Do you have apartments with separate beds?
None of our apartments have separate beds. However, you have the option to book an extra (folding) bed.
Do I have to register a residence? How does that work?
Generally, the following applies: Foreign nationals without permanent residence in Germany who wish to stay in a location for more than 3 months are required to register a residence. The same applies for anyone who is registered at a residence in Germany and moves into a different residence for longer than six months.
If you are required to register, you have to do so within 2 weeks after moving in at the citizen's office of the municipality of Eching (Bürgerplatz 1).
We will provide you with a Wohnungsgeberbestätigung (housing provider confirmation) for this purpose. In order to be able to issue this document, we require a copy of your identity card.
Please be aware that you may have to register your new residence for the "Rundfunkbeitrag" (broadcasting fee)!
Do I have to pay "Rundfunkbeitrag" (broadcasting fee)?
If you are our guest without registering your residence here, you do not have to pay the broadcasting fee.
However, registering a residence in Germany generally triggers a duty to pay broadcasting contributions ("Rundfunkbeitrag"). Exception: You are already registered, e.g. because you already maintain another residence in Germany or you are exempt from the fee for social or health reasons.
Rundfunkbeitrag – Befreiung / Ermäßigung
The "ARD ZDF Deutschlandradio Beitragsservice" (formerly GEZ) is usually notified automatically by the registration office when the new residence is registered. Currently, the broadcasting fee is €18.36/month.
Further information, as well as the possibility to register online, can be found here:
Rundfunkbeitrag – Homepage
Can a visitor stay with me temporarily?
If a visitor would like to stay in your apartment for a short stay, we will gladly provide you with an extra bed (width 80cm) incl. bedding and a set of towels for a one-time fee of €30.00. Furthermore, we charge an energy fee of €10.00 per night for visitors.
We define a visit as a stay of no more than 6 consecutive nights and up to 6 nights per month. In case of longer double occupancy, we may charge the double occupancy rate. Please let us know in advance if you plan to have a guest.
I am very sensitive to noise. Which types of noise exist?
Some apartments in our newly constructed buildings are facing towards the road. However, all of these rooms have soundproof glazing, so you should hear almost no noise with the windows closed. At the same time, a ventilation system ensures sufficient fresh air.
Occasionally, noises from the restaurant (kitchen noises, conversations) can also be heard in the apartments. However, this mostly affects the apartments directly adjacent to the restaurant (B50, B51, 28, 29, 34, 35) during opening hours.
We cannot completely rule out noise pollution from planes taking off or landing at the nearby airport. As a rule, however, aircraft over Eching are at an altitude at which they are barely audible.
If you are very sensitive to noise, just let us know when you make your reservation. We will then preferentially offer you a quiet apartment facing the courtyard.
Can apartments be visited before booking?
Yes that's possible. In the past, however, finding an appointment turned out to be difficult, as our house was often fully booked.
However, in any case, you can visit the facility and the accessible rooms. Also, we will be happy to provide you with pictures of the desired apartment.
Are there any additional costs?
The monthly rent includes:
(Hot) water, heating, electricity, internet, satellite TV, one parking space in the underground garage as well as free parking on the premises, free access to the common rooms, room cleaning, final cleaning etc.
If the apartment is damaged or inventory is missing after the rental period, we will deduct the incurred costs from the deposit.
Not included in the rent is the use of the washing machines and dryers (1 € per washing or drying cycle) as well as other additional services (guest bed, additional parking spaces in the underground garage, use of the charging sockets for EVs, cellar compartment).
Please note that a potentially payable broadcasting fee (Rundfunkbeitrag) is also not included in the rent!
Do you accept payment by credit card?
We prefer payment by bank transfer. Cash payment is also possible. Due to the high fees for payment by credit card, we accept them only in some exceptional cases.
When do I have to pay?
The deposit is to be paid until 7 days after signing the contract, but must in any case be received on our account before moving in! The rent is due monthly in advance.
How to check-in outside of office hours?
If your apartment is located in the building sections 10 - 10d, you will receive a code for a freely accessible locker at the entrance to Obere Hauptstr. 10. In it we will leave you the key for your apartment. We will inform you of your locker number and code before your arrival. To open the locker, please enter the code followed by the # key.
Sollte Ihr Appartement im Neubau liegen (Appartement Nr. 1 bis 83), so erhalten Sie von uns vorab einen Zugangscode, der sowohl die Haustüre, als auch Ihre Zimmertüre öffnet. Dazu geben Sie jeweils den Code am elektronischen Türschloss, gefolgt von der ✓-Taste ein. Im Appartement hinterlegen wir Ihnen dann den Schlüssel bzw. Transponder.
Why is there a waiting list?
Many of our guests opt for open contracts with a 4-week notice period. Every now and then, guests also want to end their contract early, e.g. because of work-related changes.
Our waiting list allows us to quickly meet requests for early contract termination and in general to avoid vacancies as much as possible due to the short notice period.
The flexibility of our guests also reduces our ability to plan ahead more than 1-2 months, as we cannot know for sure which apartments will become available. If your desired check-in date lies further in the future, we often can only offer to put you on our waiting list for the month in question.
Please let us know in your inquiry if you wish to be placed on our waiting list if we can't offer an apartment right away and thus be contacted by us in case a suitable apartment becomes available in time. If you are on our waiting list and find something else in the meantime, we would appreciate a short notice!
Who do I contact if I have a problem?
In a genuine emergency, the police (110) or fire department (112) is your first point of contact.
Should you have been locked out, for example, or have another urgent problem (water damage, power failure, etc.), you can reach us at any time at 0179 / 215 00 85.
If an employee is needed on site outside of office hours and your problem is self-inflicted, we charge €20.
For all other problems, you can reach us at 089 / 319 10 25 (weekdays from 9.00 to 17.00), or by email at email@example.com. Alternatively, we look forward to your visit to our office.
How does the room cleaning work?
The exact times for the 14-day cleaning of the apartments will be announced about 3 days in advance by notice in the stairwell. On this day we ask you to leave the apartment in a tidy condition. The service staff will knock first and then - if there is no answer - enter the apartment. If the date communicated in advance is inconvenient for you, it is possible to postpone the cleaning date a little. However, since the cleanliness and maintenance of our apartments is important to us, it is not possible to skip the regular cleaning altogether.
Only if you are not on site for several weeks, the cleaning could be cancelled. Please let us know then briefly. Our service manager Mrs. M. Danner is available for you by phone during the day.
Are your apartments handicap accessible?
Apartments No. 1 - 83 are accessible by means of a ramp (with railings) and elevator directly from the underground garage. There are no door thresholds and the bathroom has a level-access shower. However, since the bathroom does not offer enough movement space for wheelchairs, our apartments are low-barrier but not barrier-free.
Is it possible to have breakfast in the restaurant?
At present, no. However, only about 200m away from the boarding house, directly on the main road, there are several bakeries and a butcher's shop.
Is there a possibility to copy or print documents?
You are welcome to copy or print a few pages free of charge in our office during opening hours. For larger quantities, however, we must refer you to a copy shop.
Where can I rent a bicycle?
Guest who would like to rent a bike, can do so at Hotel Olymp.
However, we recommend bringing your own bike!
