We have arranged for an inexpensive option with a local university dormitory. If you’d like a more comfortable place, there are plenty of hotels around the venue and in down-town Brno. We’ve listed a few good options for hotels below which have kindly offered a special rate for GUADEC participants.
The Taufer Dormitory (Tauferovy koleje) lies in a quiet neighborhood, with excellent public transport connections both to the venue and to downtown Brno. You can either share a room or have a room to yourself. Between every two rooms, there’s a little kitchenette and a bath room. Note that even if you are staying in a single room, the bath room is still shared with the other room.
You’ll get a small towel and soap at check-in but plan to bring your own too.
Rooms are equipped with wired Internet connections. The dorms are able to provide ethernet cables if you ask at the reception but they only have a small number available. The GUADEC organization can provide cables for those who need one and will do so when delivering badges or on request.
Wifi is available in the lobby, which is ideal for all kinds of hacking and chatting.
The dormitory address is Jana Babáka 3, Brno.
Tram line 12 has a request stop in front of the dormitory (stop name “Tererova”) and takes 15 minutes directly from Brno main station (Brno hlavní nádraží). See Local Transportation in Brno.
Note: You can reserve a room at the dormitory when registering for the conference. Payments are to be made directly to the dormitory at the reception when checking out.
