How to get there:
Amsterdam Airport Schiphol is one of the largest air traffic hubs in Europe
and thus very well connected. Trains depart from Schiphol to Amsterdam Centraal
every few minutes, cost around 4 Euro (one-way) and take about 20 minutes. From
Amsterdam central station to the venue, take Tram [1,2,5] and leave at
Koningsplein, or walk around 20 minutes. From the southern parts of Amsterdam
including the HiPEAC conference venue area you may also take Tram [4,9,16,24]
and leave at Muntplein.

Hotel information:
The range of hotels in easy walking distance from the TACLe meeting venue is in
the hundreds, yet finding a good and reasonably priced place to stay is not so
easy. As a rule of thumb, avoid hotels in the red light district. Most of them
are pretty shabby and the neighbourhood tends to be very noisy at night. Also
be aware that many 3-star hotels in Amsterdam offer basic/economy/budget rooms
without private bath room. However, the time of the year certainly plays in our
favour and very attractive deals with good hotels in prime locations at reasonable
rates may well be possible.
Please note that the HiPEAC conference venue, and thus the majority of the
recommended hotels, is in a different part of town outside the historic center.
