2. If any interference with the performance of any obligation or if defects in the services of the Hotel occur, the Hotel will, on immediate complaint of the customer, endeavor to remedy the same.

Aforementioned limitations of liability shall also apply in cases of any claims for damages of a Customer against employees or vicarious agents of the Hotel. They do not apply in the cases of liability for a defect after a guarantee for the quality of an object or a work was given, or in cases of fraudulently concealed defects or injury to persons.
6. If the Customer is – even against payment – provided with a parking space in the garage or the car-park of the Hotel, this shall not constitute the conclusion of a contract of bailment deposit. The Hotel shall not have any surveillance obligations for the vehicles. If vehicles or the contents of vehicles parked or otherwise situated on the Hotel premises are lost or damaged, the Hotel shall be not liable unless the Hotel, its legal representatives or its vicarious agents have caused such damage by willful intent or gross negligence.

8. The Customer’s claims for damages shall fall under the statute of limitations two years at the latest from the time the Customer obtains knowledge of the damage, or, irrespective of this knowledge, three years at the latest after the damaging event.
