Accommodation

There is no official hotel for OCP17, so you will need to make your own arrangements for accommodation in Warsaw (consider https://www.booking.com/ or http://airbnb.com ).

You may also consider the Warsaw River View, where our invited speakers will be staying. It is a nice small hotel located near the Vistula river, within walking distance of the conference venue.

Apart from that, there are several B&Bs close to the conference site:

Additionally, you may consider Hostel Aga http://www.agahostel.pl/en/, which does not offer breakfasts. For breakfast, you will need to visit a nearby restaurant (Rabarbar, Rewers…).

There is a limited number of single rooms in these ho(s)tels, so – if interested – you should book one early to stay close to the conference site.
