Important advice:

Amsterdam is a very popular tourist destination, and accomodation in summer is in very high demand. Hotels tend to be fully booked already months in advance. For this reason we strongly recommend that you book your accommodation as soon as you decide to attend TACL 2009.


The organization recommends the following hotels close to the venue of the conference:

  • The Asterisk hotel (Den Texstraat 16) is  2.4 km away from the venue and is accessible by tram in about 10 minutes. The price is  between 50 and 80 euros per night. We have some special agreement with the Asterisk hotel, so please mention that you are a participant of the TACL conference at the ILLC when you register.
  • The Eden Lancaster hotel (Plantage Middenlaan 48) is 3 minutes walking from the conference. The price is between 100 and 110 euros per night.
