Pets regulation in the Hotel

The Hotel degli Aranci is an animal friendly hotel.

We know that sometimes it is difficult to find a trusted person to leave our four-legged friend with, and that more and more guests want to travel with their pets. It is for this reason that our hotel welcomes our 4-legged friends, but to ensure everyone a peaceful holiday, please note the following rules:


  • it is allowed to have a maximum of two pets in the room at the same time;

  • the hotel can accommodate a maximum of 5 pets at a time;

  • small dogs are allowed (max 5kg - except for guide dogs);

  • pets must be on a leash or in a carrier when in public areas of the hotel;

  • the owner undertakes not to leave pets unattended in the room;

  • pets are not allowed in the restaurant and breakfast room (except for guide dogs);

  • for safety reasons, the cleaner will not clean the room if the pet has been left unattended. The animal must be on a leash or secured in an alternative way (cage – carrier) even when you are present during the cleaning of your room. In order to avoid unpleasant situations, please inform reception in advance when you want your room to be cleaned daily (available between 8:00 and 12:30);

  • the owner is responsible for damages (material or physical) that may arise from the animals. The Hotel degli Aranci reserves the right to request the reimbursement of expenses or the payment of an extra night (due to the impossibility of selling the room) and request the owner of the animal to repair or replace the damaged elements;
