92 Euros? That's nothing... if you manage to hit the right parking lot
somewhere in Zurich (some area which belongs to Hotel Senator)
this will get "upgraded" to 492 Euros per night...
But since these "slightly less than gentlemanish" tactics
(boldly manipulating fully paid parking timers etc.)
have had their fair share of open news publicity lately I'd guess
that they've been quickly taken down and shot now.
(and yes, this parking scandal has been exquisitely performed with
nice inactivity/cooperation by local police *rolleyes*)
