24 Hour Cancellation Policy for Spa and Banya Services:
A 100% cancellation fee applies to reservations canceled with less than 24-hour notice. For Example: Appointment is 5/22/16 @ 1pm || client has to call by 5/21/16 @1pm to cancel the appointment to not be charged. A portion of this fee goes directly to the therapists who would have provided your reserved service. This policy helps retain great employees as they rely on us to provide them a full schedule. *See Below for additional policies regarding appointment cancellations.
*If client calls later than 24 hours to cancel their appointment, but reschedules for a different day with the same therapist, there will be no fee.
*If client calls 24 hours in advance to cancel a rescheduled appointment, they will be charged for the service. A rescheduled appointment is nonrefundable/ cancelled approved.

Parking and Valuables:
Archimedes Banya is not responsible for lost or stolen valuables in your vehicle and on premise. If your vehicle has been burglarized, Archimedes Banya is not responsible for repairs to your car. Be smart and do not leave any valuables inside of your car. A car with no bags or clutter present is a lot less likely to be broken into.
Archimedes Banya is not responsible for lost items at the banya. It is recommended that you not leave any valuables in your robe pockets, as robes can often be confused or taken to be laundered. If you lose valuables and we find them, you have 7 days to claim them. It is incredibly difficult to keep track of so many items that are left behind. We do our best to recover as much as possible and often things are found and returned.
We now close the banya floor at 11:45 allowing the guests plenty of time to vacate the banya by our closing hour of midnight. All guests need to be leaving by 12 am and no later. We reserve the right to charge guests for an extra hour extension if guests leave late.
Late Arrival Guests:
We no longer allow guests to check in to banya after 10:45pm.
