Accommodation

Hotels close to the Vrije Universiteit (VU) and VU-Griffioen (the conference venue)

The hotels below are near the conference venue and fairly easy to reach. The conference venue is at a 30-minute travel distance from the city centre. Of course, there are many more hotels in Amsterdam. If you look for hotels more or less outside the city centre, prices will probably be similar to the ones presented below. There are also many hotels within the city centre. These are usually a bit more expensive. You can check www.booking.com for more information. It may also be worthwhile to consider a bed-and-breakfast (see www.bedandbreakfast.eu).
