Our reservation information said only to come to the hotel and then we would be directed to parking. However, the old town is closed to traffic without a permit, and the hotel is impossible to find without a detailed map or specific directions. GPS is absolutely no help. Finally we parked and two of us wandered through the town until we found the hotel. The desk clerk gave us a map, but it was poorly printed and very difficult to follow. A nice policeman gave us a better map, and we finally were able to drive to the hotel. The desk clerk called a taxi to lead us to where the parking area was and then bring us back to the hotel. The cost for this service was included in our room cost. However, no such arrangements were available the next morning, and the desk clerk (same guy) made it clear that it was not his problem. I suppose we could have asked him to call us a taxi, which we would have had to pay for, but by then we were determined to solve the problem on our own, which we did by walking to the parking lot and then using the better map and our memory of the taxi driver's route out of town to find our way. There's no excuse for the hotel not being more helpful to guests who need to locate the hotel. They obviously know it's a problem or they wouldn't have the taxi arrangement, and why not include the cost of the taxi both ways? We spent so much time trying to find the hotel and then hassling with the parking that we lost most of the afternoon we had planned to spend sightseeing.
