February 28th, 2018 Parking lots in Chapultepec

we are using a 24 feet camper, asked pricing at our arrival, the guard told us 80 pesos per day, told us to find a spot in the back of the parking.
had a good shaded spot under a tree one of few in this parking.
spent 15 days there, at noon this morning wanted to go, confirmed price of 80 pesos per day with a manager, a bit later another manager came and requested that we pay 120 pesos per day instead because our vehicle is the size (in length) of 3 parking spaces (measured width)
I said no and he kept us there for 2 hours, talking on the phone with another manager
we were able to go out and pay 1200 pesos as expected, but bad experience.
