Conference accommodation


The general advice is that hotels which are all state run can be uneven in the services they provide. Hotel names listed below are chosen because they are close to the conference venue. These hotels are reviewed on Tripadvisor. Otherwise casas particulares (Bed and Breakfast) are privately run and are often more comfortable and offer better value for money. Contacts on the list below are all in the vicinity of the conference location.
