How to make a hotel reservation

To make a hotel reservation, it is necessary to fill in the ONLINE ACCOMMODATION FORM.


Please note that the online Accommodation Form is only accessible with a password. Simply fill in the Personal Data Form and a password will be sent to you. The password differs from password for the paper submission.


Reservations will be processed on a “first come, first-served” basis. Due to heavy demand and the fact that distribution of rooms in many hotels is limited, please book your accommodation as soon as possible.  


All rates quoted are per room per night including 14% VAT and breakfast (except rates in Dormitory Petrská and AZ Hostel). Should VAT change before the beginning of the Conference, the Conference Secretariat will automatically change the price of your hotel room and inform you in writing about the new rate.
 

Extras are to be paid directly at the hotel reception before departure.
