If you have the Alex on your left you will have to drive for ~350 Mt more. Parking will be on your right marked Alexander Court... You will have to ask The Alex the first code...

Pretty much opposite the hotel, to the left and under ground. It was €18 over night. Reception will need to give you the access code to enter the main gate and the pedestrian gate.
