Is the parking cheaper for two motorcycles (motorad) sharing one space or less...?

salve, il vostro hotel dispone di una sauna o bagno turco? grazie 1000, marina
Unfortunately we do not have either! Our hotel is very small and basic and does not have extra amenities like bars, fitness area, sauna etc. best regards Manfred Stern am Rathaus
