Hotel reservations

Please take note that hotel reservations are to be done via the online registration form (operated by TAVI Congress Bureau) in order to benefit from the special rates. All prices are per room per night and include VAT, breakfast is included in Hotels –not in Dream Hostel.

To guarantee your hotel reservation, a deposit of one night’s room rate is 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 are two people sharing a double room, you both indicate the reservation on the registration form but only one participant needs to pay the hotel deposit, the other participant voids the deposit by ticking the option “I share a previously reserved double room”. Please, remember to indicate on the registration form the name of the person you are sharing a room with.
