Frequently asked questions (FAQ)
Are SYLQ Living apartments furnished? What is included in the price?
All SYLQ Living apartments are furnished, and prices include water and electricity. Services to help your day-to-day life (for example, cleaning services) are also available.
How can I reserve an apartment from SYLQ Living?
You can reserve an apartment directly online. If you cannot find what you are looking for, please contact our bookings team. You can contact us by phone or email.
What information does SYLQ Living need to make a reservation?
To make a reservation, we need to have your name. The reservation can be made either in the name of a private person (age limit 23 years) or a company. To make the reservation we need the personal identity number/passport number or a company’s VAT number. We always check the credit report for the individual or company. In addition, we need up-to-date contact information (home address, email address and phone number) as well as basic information about all tenants.
How can I cancel the booking or change the booking dates?
With our Flexible Reservation service, you can cancel the booking or change the dates according to the following terms:
You can cancel the booking or change the dates by the latest at 16:00 seven (7) working days before arrival. Price £200 + VAT 10 %.
Please note that the cancellation or changes for arrival or departure dates are not possible without this service. Flexible Reservation service cannot be purchased after booking.
The service fee won’t be refunded if a reservation is cancelled, but the price of your reservation will.
Notice of changes or cancellation must be given in writing by emailing our customer service team.
Why do prices vary for the same apartment or room?
Prices vary according to the length of your reservation and the termination period you select when making your reservation. A longer agreement with a long termination period earns you a more affordable price than a short agreement.
Why can’t I reserve an available apartment for the day I want?
If you are having difficulties in booking an apartment online, please contact our bookings team.
How long can I wait before I have to decide whether or not to confirm my reservation?
If you book through our online shop, your reservation is confirmed when you pay. If you receive an offer by email, your reservation is in effect.
How can I pay?
The reservation can be paid for online or with online banking or a credit card.
Can I pay for my accommodation by invoice?
Yes of course, you can. If you book online, you must pay for the initial period when you book. You will then pay through recurring billing. If you want to pay only by invoice, please contact our bookings team.
Can I reserve an apartment or room even if I have an adverse entry on my credit report?
We can make an agreement in this type of situation. In such a case, the entire price of the accommodation and security deposit is paid in advance.
I will be arriving late in the evening. How can I get my keys?
If you are not able to pick up the keys during office hours, contact our customer service well ahead of time and make arrangements for the keys to be delivered (where and when the keys need to be delivered). Please note that this service comes at an additional cost.
If you are not able to get the keys yourself, you can provide our customer service with the identity information of the person who will pick them up. We will provide the keys to the designated person after verifying their identity.
How does a key code lock work?
Some of our locations have locks that work using key codes instead of traditional keys. The code will be sent to you by text message and email by 16:00 on the day your reservation begins. If you have not received your code by 16:30 on the day of arrival, please contact our customer service. You can use the code to enter the building and your room or apartment.
Using the code: enter the five-digit code followed by hash on the keypad on the door, for example 12345#. If you enter the wrong code, press the # key again before re-entering your code. When you have entered your code, you will hear the lock click open. Pull the door open using the handle. It may be necessary to pull forcefully.
Who handles cleaning in SYLQ Living apartments?
Our own service team is responsible for the condition and maintenance of our apartments. If you would like to order cleaning or linen service during your stay, please contact our customer service. You can also order a final cleaning – this way, all you need to worry about at the end of your stay is packing up your personal items; you can let us take care of the final cleaning. However, please note that you are responsible for keeping your apartment tidy during your stay.
