Parking space is limited in the immediate area surrounding the hotel (and parking is subject to a municipal fee). As far as I know, the hotel reserves few parking lots for guests so you should contact reception and find out if there is a free lot for the duration of your stay. Alternatively, there is a paid parking in front of Ramada Trimontium Hotel, which is within walking distance (if you don't carry heavy luggage).

"well the top floor has a little balcony with a decent view"
"Beware of the 3 flights of stairs if you like top-floor rooms."
"3rd Floor standard room had a pleasant view and big enough to accommodate two"
"If you can manage the stairs go for A4!"
"Room 201 (28 sq m Double room with balcony) was delightful. Overlooks side street action below, sunny aspect and flowers in window boxes."
US$ 92 - US$ 115 (Based on Average Rates for a Standard Room)
