Berlin and accommodation

We gathered some hotel options for you! Be quick, many hotels already had no space left in May...

  • You can book for Eur 65/night single or Eur 75/night double at hotel Aletto Kudamm by sending a mail to gr@aletto.de with your reservation data and mentioning "owncloudconf2015". Note that we could reserve only 20 rooms and the reservation ends on June 28!
  • Another option is the NH Berlin City Ost, about Eur 75 per night. It is situated in Berlin East so a S-bahn ride away but close to where we have booked more people. We have no reserved rooms so you'll have to be quick!
  • Hotel Amelie is just a quick U-bahn stop away, is affordable and still has room.

If these hotels are full or not to your liking, you can use this site to find something close by the University.

Code of conduct

We want everybody to feel welcome at the event. Please be mindful of our code of conduct. Also, please note that there will be video recording. The conference is an open space, please be sure that you are comfortable with that. Of course, you can always ask people not to take pictures or video of you.
