RTNS2014 > Accomodation


The organizing committe has negogiated the rate you have to pay for a room in two hotels in Versailles, near the conference. The rate is 90 € for a single room and 45 € for a twin room. The normal rate for a room in Versailles is higher than these prices.

In the registration process, the participant can choose a room from these two hotels. The participant can also decide to arrange himself his own hotel reservation by not selecting this option in the registration process.

Note that we have a limited number of rooms (double/single and twin) that are available at these rates and that these rooms are blocked until September 15th, so the sooner you register, the better it is!

The name of the two hotels will be given very soon.

You can find a map of other hotels within Versailles here.

You can also see the Versailles tourism office web site for other hotels and tourist information.
