To accommodate those travelling from far, INTI approached a selection of well-located hotels in Rotterdam, Amsterdam and Almere, which have made up special arrangements for participants of the conference. In order of the locations of the program, the INTI suggests the following hotels:

* Unfortunately, INTI has not been able to arrange a deal with a hotel located in Rotterdam. However, we highly recommend Bazar Hotel, located in the city centre, relatively close to the central station (Bazar Hotel ***)

Lloyd Hotel & Cultural Embassy (***rooms)
* From April 25 onwards, participants of the International New Town Day will be able to book a room with 10% discount with the promocode: NEWTOWN

Hotel Finn ***
* Please, include your creditcard details and a mentioning of INTI with your reservation in order to receive a discount price organized by INTI

In case you wish to make use of the arrangements INTI has made with these hotels, please mention your participation in the International New Town Day when you make your reservations: you will get a discount on the regular prices of the hotel. In case of Hotel Finn, please also include your credit card details with your reservation.

If you prefer not to travel too much during the program, naturally, it is possible to book one of the hotels for several days. During the night in advance of the conference, however, we strongly recommend booking with Hotel Finn, as it is very close to the conference location in Almere

During the two days of excursions and side visits, the bus tours will be organized by INTI. The costs for these bus tours are included in the price of the conference. The suggested hotels are in proximity of the starting points of the bus tours (in Rotterdam and Amsterdam respectively).

In case you decide to stay in one of the hotels for several days, you can make use of the Intercity Direct train connection, which takes you from Rotterdam Central Station to Amsterdam Central Station (and vice versa) in 42 minutes. This train leaves every 30 minutes and approximately costs €15,10 with €2,40 extra surcharge.
The travelling time between Rotterdam and Almere (using the Intercity Direct) is approximately one hour and 10 minutes, with a transfer on Schiphol Airport.

Keep in mind that, for the Excursion Days on June 28 and June 29, the bus will leave at the Kiss-and-Ride areas of respectively the Central Station of Rotterdam and Amsterdam.
In Almere, the hotel is within walking distance from the venue of the Conference.
