However, if the Guest has any complaints regarding the service, they can submit them verbally or in writing to the Service Provider.

The Guest can address their complaint intended for the Service Provider to the email address operation@vagabondhotels.com, verbally at the Service Provider’s customer service (1061 Budapest, Paulay Ede utca 3.), or by sending a postal letter to the registered office (1083 Budapest, Práter utca 6-8.

The Service Provider promptly investigates verbal complaints and remedies them as necessary. If the Guest disagrees with the handling of the complaint or if an immediate investigation is not possible, the Service Provider immediately prepares a record of the complaint and its position on it and sends a copy of it to the Guest by post or email or, in the case of a verbal complaint communicated by telephone or other electronic communication service, sends it electronically within 30 days of the complaint, at the latest simultaneously with the response.

The Service Provider responds in writing to written complaints (including those received by email) as soon as possible but no later than within 30 days of receipt. The Service Provider provides reasons for rejecting the complaint.

The contact details of the Conciliation Boards competent for consumer disputes are available on the website https://bekeltetes.hu/udvozlo under the Menus section. In the absence of domestic residence or domicile, the jurisdiction of the Conciliation Board is based on the registered office of the company involved in the consumer dispute or the body authorized to represent it.
