I'd like to mention right at the beginning of this email that whenever you book a room and you want the conference special rate you should tell them you want the rate for the YAPC conference at the University of Minho.
The official hotels for YAPC::EU::2005 are the following:
(the numbers are so that you can easily find the hotels at the map (5Mb png)).
First, allow me to explain why there are three hotels:
All the details we have on these hotels can be found at http://braga.yapceurope.org/index.cgi?BragaHotels (and there's also some more info on some other hotels too, just in case), but here are some highlights:
(OK, all these rooms have breakfast included)
If you still think this is expensive, or if you're in for some adventure, you might want to go camping. Braga has a camping park. The standard rates (per night) are:
Mind you, you have to take your tent.
Here are some rough figures:
3 * (2 + 2 * 1.7) euros = 16.20 euros
BTW, the camping park advertises "free hot water shower, any time of the day" (but they probably also have cold water, if really want).
More details (but not too many) can be found at http://braga.yapceurope.org/index.cgi?Camping.
Apart from all this, we're still working on a mean of letting people stay at the students' residence, which should be cheaper than staying at a hotel.
I would also like to mention right at the end of this email that whenever you book a room and you want the conference special rate you should tell them you want the rate for the YAPC conference at the University of Minho.
Oh, and I'd also like to thank Magda, who went through all the trouble
of contacting the hotels :
) Thanks, Magda! :)
If there are any questions, that's what we're here for :-)
