Accommodation

There are many options for accommodation in Madrid. An alternative is to to search for hotels near Campus Sur UPM. An example of an affordable hotel at walking distance from the venue is the "Hotel ibis budget Madrid Vallecas".

However, Madrid is very well communicated by it's extensive Metro system: moving to different areas of the city is very fast. As an example, the event (dis)organizer (jemarch) will be based near Reina Victoria (Metro station "Guzman el Bueno") during the event and from there it only takes around 40 minutes to reach the UPM campus. So, you may opt to stay near Reina Victoria, or any other part of the city of your choice.
