GISE 2018

Hotel Accommodation

Florence has over 14.000 hotel rooms, many of which are walking distance to city center and venue. A wide range of accommodation options is available from five star to budget rooms.

The Organizing Secretariat OIC has reserved a number of hotel rooms at preferential rates in different categories located at walking distance from the Conference venue and the city center.

Please note that Florence attracts millions of visitors every year. Due to limited room availability, we do advise you to make your reservation as early as possible in order to have the best choice of available hotels. Hotel accommodation is subject to availability and will be allocated on a first-come, first-served basis; in order to avoid any disappointment early bookings are recommended (phone reservations are not accepted).

To secure adequate overnight capacities, hotel rooms for the congress have had to be contracted a long time in advance.  Please note that hotels occasionally publish online or last-minute promotion rates for a limited number of rooms which may vary from the prices contracted for the congress.

The Organizing Secretariat OIC srl can offer also accommodation in further hotels in the Meeting area.
