What about holiday apartments in Venice?
We at Luxrest Venice are applying the regional directives as per hotels, b&b and holiday rentals and we have set up a protocol for welcoming our guests and preparing the apartments.
Our representative will wear a mask, will meet the guests at the water-bus stop which is closer to the apartment and will walk the guests to the house, respecting social distancing. Housekeys, previously disinfected, will be provided in a zipped plastic envelope.
Sanitization of the apartments
Luxrest Venice relies on qualified personnel, who is now certified to carry out sanitization of the apartments between each guests' change. All surfaces are cleaned with bactericidal and virucide detergents (having as an active ingredient sodium hypochlorite, ethyl alcohol or others) and linen is washed at 90°C and/or with chlorine-based sanitizers. Fabrics like curtains, sofas and carpets are cleaned with steam appliances or atomizers with bactericidal and virucide detergents.
Welcoming you at our office
We will be more than happy to welcome you at our office for any assistance you may need: we provide bactericidal gel at the entrance door and we will wear a mask; you will be invited to do the same. We will clean all seats with disinfectant detergent after each visit. We disinfect all screens, keyboards, telephones and workstations after each shift. The office is regularly cleaned.
