If you want to use the disabled parking area, just show your special sign / pass (on your car or pass) to the video-camera and the security will open the gate.

Press the bell push mounted on a post with an outdoor microphone system. When they respond, gives the serial number on the orange/blue badge. They then raise the barrier to the car parking area for disabled users. The exit barrier raises automatically on the approach of a vehicle. One slight snag with the entry arrangement – it is mounted, of course, for left-hand drive vehicles!

Cite Europe Hotels

Don't forget the three hotels close to Cite Europe, Hotel IBIS, Suite Novotel hotel and ETAP (Budget). When booking a hotel through the Accor hotels web site, look for the "promotion rate". Although these offers are restrictive (cancel, and there is no refund), the prices are often very keen. We enjoy our stays at the Suite Novotel hotel, which has large rooms and a better quality of furnishing than most IBIS hotels for example. When travelling Hotel IBIS are a good bet, as there is a 24 hour concierge.

Don't forget our hotels chains in France and the United Kingdom pages. Looking at the chain's own web site can save you money as many of the offers are only available there.
