Participants at the conference will be accommodated at Hotel Parlament www.parlament-hotel.hu/ The address of the Hotel is: 1054 Budapest Kálmán Imre utca 19 Phone number: +36-1-374-6000 How to reach Hotel Parlament: When arriving by train: From Nyugati pu. (Western Station): Walking distance. From the underground you should follow the signs towards BAJCSY ZSILINSZKY ÚT. Walk on the right side of the road (having the train station behind your back) and after about 100 meters you will find Kálmán Imre utca on your right hand side. From Keleti pu. (Eastern Station) or Deli pu. (Southern Station): In both cases, take the red metro line (Metro number 2) to DEÁK FERENC TÉR (junction of all three metro lines). Then take the blue metro (Metro number 2) toward ÚJPEST. You should get off at the ARANY JÁNOS UTCA stop. As you come out of the metro station turn left and follow BAJCSY ZSILINSZKY ÚT until you reach Kálmán Imre utca on your left hand side. When arriving by plane: The easiest way to get to the city from the airport is by the „AIPORT MINIBUS”. You can change money or use the ATM machine in the arrivals hall. You will find a desk for the Airport Minibus Service in the meeting area of the airport. Please buy a return ticket, which costs 4390 HUF (~18 EUR) per person. Wait until the driver calls the address you gave at the desk. Please keep the ticket as you will need it for your trip back. When departing, you will need to call the Minibus Service one day in advance and arrange a pick-up time, depending on your flight out. The hotel can arrange this for you. Alternatively, if you arrive with family or with other colleagues, it may be cheaper to take a taxi. There is an airport taxi company called Zona Taxi. You can find the taxi station outside the terminal. It has fixed prices, which to Hotel Parlament should be 4500 HUF. Please pay in forints because the euro price is significantly higher.
