Hi I thought so too, but it's absolutely ok to enter over the tram tracks..in fact it's the only way as it's a one way street! There's a little car park area to the left once you drive in for checking in...check in is up the lift. Hope this helps.

"Twin room was very generous in size, two large double beds, good sized balcony."
"all rooms face north east and over looking the pool and city"
"Beach view also overlooks the bear garden, so light sleepers should avoid!"
"Can be a long wait for the elevator -we chose to take the stairs."
"Make sure your reservation includes the complementary breakfast - it's delicious!"
