Change of accommodation type or house / residence

The only possible changes are upgrades, from a room to a studio for example, after a year of stay. Such a change generates a fee of CHF 250 to be paid in advance. The type of lease remains unchanged and a new guarantee must be opened. The old guarantee is released after the check-out of the room.
