How do you tag an ATM which is not situated on the surface but on an underground level of a metro station?

Where do you put the tag? Do you guess the (underground) location? Or do you put it near / or on the tag of the metro entrance or of the metro station?

I guess I would try to estimate the position of the ATM as best I could, then add a "level=-1" tag to it (in addition to the other relevant tags).

layer=* is for determining the relative vertical positions of crossing ways. I think a better tag would be level=-1.

the multiple links I added to this answer may help you.

I began to map inside a metro station though I'm yet to complete the links can help you see what you can do. In this the ATM is given as if it was inside a building and even if you can't be too cirtain on the precise place the corridoor/room/area'ed-highways all help you give a logical postion for some one to navigate to. Infuture someone may move it to a more exact place for you.
