Parking

The Theaterhotel has it's own parking in front of the hotel on "het Schouwburgplein". Visitors of the hotel can use this parking for free, however: this is a very small parking that is usually filled to capacity during the festival.

A better option is to use the Stadserf P3 parking just behind the hotel. Just follow the parking signs on the "Hofstraat". You can also park in Stadserf P1 and Stadserf P2, as you will drive past those two just before P3, but P3 has a direct entrance to the hotel on the 4th floor.

The maximum tariff for parking in Almelo is € 6,00 per 24 hours, except on Sunday when it is free. This pricing is both for the parkings and on the streets. If you show your P4 parking slip at the Hotel desk you'll only pay € 5,00 per 24 hours. 

For the old hands who used to visit the Theaterhotel in the past: yes the parkings have been renamed, P3 used to be P4, etc... Also: the good old days when parking was free in the neighbourhood are over.
