from Ooostel2.be. Failure to obtain the written consent from the accommodation will result in the client being obliged to pay the
contractually agreed price, even if he does not make use of the contractual services. This provision shall not apply, if it causes a
breach of duty by Ooostel2.be to make allowance for the rights, legal interests and other interests of the client, in the event that
such rights and interests should make it unreasonable to expect the client to stick to the contract or should entitle the client to
any other statutory or contractual right of rescission.

at other above mentioned Ooostel2.be companies.

reserved on the basis of misleading or false information with regard to material facts such as the client’s identity or the purpose
of the room reservation; – Ooostel2.be has justified reason to believe that the client’s use of accommodation services may
jeopardize the smooth running of business, security or public reputation of Ooostel2.be without this being attributable to
