The Hotels Aequa and Astoria are just a few steps from the Hotel Oriente. Information about accommodation will be provided at the Reception Desk of the Hotel Oriente. While breakfast will be served in each hotel, dinner will be served to all participants at the Hotel Oriente. This will provide the opportunity for contacts and small group discussions.

Extras will be paid in each hotel.
