Hilton Cyprus (about 5 kms from the venue) for special rates (made only via Cynet with a very special rate of 110 EUR  – single and 130 – double). For reservation, you may contact Ms Sofi Anagnostopoulou ( / +357 22653062) and please, make reference to the meeting.

Other suggestions are Semeli Hotel (very close to Hilton) and for those who want to be right next to the venue (but rather far from the city centre) is UC Hall Residence.


Transportation (airport to hotel): For travelling from the airport to Nicosia you can use Kapnos Airport Shuttle ( or we can arrange for a taxi to pick people up (Mr. Andreas +357 99 689020 – about 50EUR per ride and less if shared).

Transportation (hotel to venue): The best way to get around is by taxi. Bus service is rather limited.
