It's a really nice hotel and well situated so it might be best to call the hotel and double check

Bietet das Hotel Parkplätze an? Falls ja wie teuer sind diese?
Hi, We rent parking spaces in a nearby garage. Costs 225:- for 24 hours until the end of February when the park house raises it to 245:-. Parking also available on the street right outside. Most information can be read on hotelposeidon homepage.

"Corner rooms are slight bigger"
"Definitely a place to stay if you want a cheap, no frills, quiet and walking distance from the city central (downtown)."
"We are on floor 3 and it was quiet."
"walls are thin, so higher floors should be quieter as the cleaners get to them later"
$88 - $173 (Based on Average Rates for a Standard Room)
