House rules

Occupancy

Each bridge house accommodates a maximum of 2 adults (21+ years). Since our bridge houses only have 1 king-size bed each, we recommend sharing your bridge house bed with a partner or friend as no extra beds can be placed in the bridge houses.

Check-in

The check-in time is 4 PM on the day of arrival, at the latest.

SWEETS hotel operates on a self-service system which allows guests to check-in online and access the reserved bridge house with their smartphone (using an app called FLEXIPASS). Detailed instructions are included in SWEETS hotel’s confirmation email, which is sent to you directly after booking.

Good to know:

  • The personal key code for FLEXIPASS will be sent on the day of arrival, as soon as the bridge house is ready (4 PM at the latest).
  • A key card is provided in the bridge house. During your stay, both the key card and your mobile phone can be used to unlock the door.
  • The key code and key card will stop working once the check-out time has passed.

Check-out

The check-out time is 11 AM on the day of departure, unless a late check-out was added to your booking and confirmed by SWEETS hotel. Bookings for 206. Amstelschutsluis automatically include a late check-out of 12 AM.

Please let us know when you check out by selecting the CHECK OUT option on the electronic tablet (SuitePad) provided in each bridge house. The provided key card and FLEXIPASS key code will stop working once the check-out time has passed.
