The square is surrounded by a very large building. The hotel Hampton by Hilton is part of this building and should be on your left hand side. Go straight ahead towards the building, where there is a sort of tunnel (between the Marmaris restaurant and the café Lebkov&Sons).
Keep going straight ahead. You are now in a shopping street. Amongst the many stores in this street, you will pass a Subway and a Domino’s pizza restaurant on your right hand. Just go straight ahead until you come across another square.
On this square you will see the supermarket Lidl on your left hand side, the clothing store WE on your right hand side and in front of you a Kentucky Fried Chicken restaurant. Cross the square towards the Kentucky Fried Chicken (which is in a corner) and take the shopping street next to it.
Walk this street all straight ahead till you come across a second square with some cafés and restaurants. On the left hand there is a McDonald’s, walk in that direction and you will find us a bit further in that street, on the opposite side of the McDonald’s (we are right next to the store Big Bazar).
