Dear guests,

Until now, 3 G was valid, but from 3 April, most of the Corona rules in Bavaria will be abolished, including the access restrictions and the obligation to wear a mask in hotels. However, the providers can set their own rules, such as the obligation to wear a mask, by means of the house rules. Whether restrictions still apply therefore differs from hotel to hotel. 

You can be sure that we will continue to implement hygiene measures consistently. Of course, we will keep the air purifier in the restaurant. In addition to cleaning, we will also continue to place emphasis on ventilation in the rooms. The public rooms, like the corridors, are very wide and high rooms, so we have optimal conditions on site here in addition to ventilation. 

We look forward to welcoming you as our guests and assume that we will all continue to treat each other responsibly.

Yours sincerely,

Your Opel family

Dear guests, 


you can find the current bus timetable at www.vgn.de (Verkehrsgroßraum Nürnberg). This schedule is to change from June 2022 so that the bus runs approx. every 30 minutes. Please note the information about the ALT (Anruf-Linien-Taxi, call in advance: approx. 45 min) and also that the bus route indicated there is actually not 378 but 8354 (378 is only called 378 in the VGN plan because the VGN stops after the district of Bayreuth).

Yours sincerely,

Your Opel family

Our explanation of the service charge on the invoice


We kindly ask for your understanding that we are not responsible for the following rules. What we are responsible for, however, is that we implement these rules correctly. Occasionally there are questions about this, so here is the explanation, which unfortunately we are explicitly not allowed to print on the invoice according to the tax advisor. If we apply the service charge, it is not itemised, so I guess that has to be the case as well. Thank you for your understanding. 

  

According to a published ruling of the Federal Fiscal Court (BFH, file no.: XI R 11/14), the provision of hotel parking spaces is subject to the general VAT rate of 19 percent. This also applies if there is no agreement between the hotel and the guest on the use of the parking space and no separate fee is to be paid by the guest, according to the court.

In a statement by DEHOGA, it is said that a "free use" of hotel parking spaces is not permissible according to the BFH. However, the use of parking spaces could be part of an all-inclusive price for ancillary services, such as a business package. This also applies to business travellers. Since the use of a hotel car park for business travellers is business-related, these costs could be reimbursed tax-free by the employer as ancillary travel costs. (Also concerns, for example, the use of communication networks).

If you are interested, you can find out more about this under the following ruling.

BUNDESFINANZHOF Ruling of 1.3.2016, XI R 11/14

As long as there is a change in VAT, the 15% taxation is accepted, starting from the room rate.
