Accommodation Reservations

The standard of hotels in Finland is high. Double rooms have either double beds or twin beds and all hotel rooms have a shower or bath. A buffet breakfast is included in the room rates and the hotel restaurants are prepared to accommodate special dietary requests. Most hotels have sauna facilities available to hotel guests free of charge in the mornings.

The Conference Secretariat has pre-booked accommodation in the hotels listed below. The rates given below (including breakfast and VAT) have been negotiated only for reservations made through the Secretariat while registering to the Conference.
