FAQ - frequently asked questions about VeggieHotels
Hotel search and booking
How can I tell whether a hotel is vegetarian or vegan?
On veggie-hotels.de you will only find hotels that are exclusively vegetarian or vegan. In the Search menu you can also restrict the criteria for your desired hotel e.g. filter for vegan houses only. Additionally, in the venue description of all VeggieHotels, you can easily recognize whether a hotel is completely vegetarian, vegetarian/vegan or purely vegan. The vast majority of certified VeggieHotels are vegan-friendly, as they also offer purely plant-based dishes.
Do you list venues that offer meat as well as vegetarian/vegan meals?
On veggie-hotels.de we exclusively present hotels, pensions and B&B guest houses, which specialize in 100% vegetarian or vegan cuisine. Our partner portal, vegan-welcome.com, lists recommendable vegan-friendly hotels, which always offer vegan alternatives besides their conventional fare.
How do I know whether the hotel still has rooms available?
Vegetarian and vegan venues located all over the world are listed and described on veggie-hotels.de. You can plan your “veggie vacation” individually with the help of numerous search filters. Room availability can be requested by clicking on “Reservation request” or directly on the website of the venue.
Where can I see the room price for my desired dates?
Please request current prices for your desired dates with a non-binding booking request via our website or, by visiting the website of the respective hotel. VeggieHotels does not guarantee the correctness of the information on veggie-hotels.de, especially the prices. The noncommittal price quotations on veggie-hotels.de usually show the most favorable price per room. However, the exact price structure is incumbent on the venue operators and can be found either on the web page of the hotel or via a noncommittal reservation inquiry on veggie hotels.de.

You can find a suitable venue for your vegetarian or vegan holiday by clicking on “Search”. You then have three major categories to choose from:
1) Select a country as your travel destination.
2) Select travel topics such as vegetarian and vegan wellness hotels, or veggie long-distance travel. Yoga, hiking and city trips also find their place on our site as a separate search category.
3) As a third search option, you can make a detailed search using many other filters to find the hotel of your choice. Whether you want to take your dog with you on your journey or whether you value 100% organic at your veggie venue, our detailed search allows you complete flexibility with just a few clicks.

However, confirmed examination details are only available for certified VeggieHotels venues.

All hotel guidelines can be viewed directly on the hotel’s website. Alternatively, you can also contact the hotel operators via a non-binding booking enquiry and include all questions directly to the hotel.
