It's the second time I visited this hotel and I must say I am very disappointed with the parking.
It is listed under amenities that free parking is available. I have rented a car for 2 weeks during my holiday and was not able to park inside sometimes. There are only 4 parking spots. And what really blows my mind is that the employees of the hotel also park their car on one of these 4 parking spots leaving only 3 spots available.
Even the receptionist parks her car inside?! I have never heard of such a thing and goes beyond my comprehension especially when the surroundings of the hotel are dark streets where you can always find broken glass on the pavement.
I guess some of the cars have been vandalized with broken windows.
Once I had to leave and another car was parked behind me.
Nobody at the reception knew to whom the car belonged to. I had to wait for two hours before I could finally leave!
The first time I did not rent a car and was not aware of this situation but now I can say that I am very disappointed with the hotel. Do not advertise free parking as this is misleading. You should advertise that you have only four parking spots available. And make sure the employees do not park inside.
Furthermore, the hotel is rather clean and the location is good.
