Conference Hotels

A quota of rooms has been booked at special conference rates in the following hotels. All rooms are subject to availability and bookings should be made before April 30th, 2013.

Delegates should make their hotel reservation in connection with the registration, on the conference registration form. TAVI Congress Bureau will take care of the hotel reservation for the delegates. To guarantee your hotel reservation, a deposit of one night’s room rate is required to be paid in advance together with the registration fee. The deposit will be forwarded to the hotel and it will be deducted from your final hotel bill when checking out. If you must cancel your reservation, see the cancellation and refund policy. All prices are per room per night and include breakfast and VAT.

The hotel deposit is non-refundable if the cancellation is made after April 30th, 2013. Possible cancellations or changes to reservations should be made in writing by e-mail or fax to TAVI Congress Bureau.

The recommended hotels, indicated with blue symbols in the map, form two groups: hotels in downtown Helsinki (Eastern group) and hotels in Espoo (Western group). The advantage of hotels in Espoo is the short distance to Dipoli (red symbol) congress center, while downtown hotels have much more to offer outside the conference. Bus ride from the main bus terminal (called Kamppi; pink symbol) to Dipoli takes 10-15 minutes, and the timetables for bus lines 102 and 103, together with the journey planner, can be found under transportation. A possible conference dinner place (purple symbol) also marked.
