The ECRTS 2011 and satellite workshops will take place in the ISEP Campus.

ISEP is located in the University area in the north of the city, and it is served by the Metro line D (Yellow Line) with a direct connection (15 minutes) to the city center (downtown).

Hotels in the Campus area

There are two hotels that are actually located in the campus area:

Hotel IBIS São João (web) and Hotel Eurostars Oporto (web). 

Hotels Downtown with easy acess to Campus and Conference Location

We also recomend two hotels located downtown, but with easy access to our campus (15 minutes by Metro line D).

Hotel Porto Trindade (web) and Hotel Teatro (web).

Both are located closer to the historic Porto and have free internet access in all the areas. The price and quality of the Hotel Porto Trindade is similar to that of Hotel Porto Eurostars, and it is located just across the street from the main Metro hub of the city. Hotel Teatro is a design Hotel and prices are a bit higher.

CISTER has also reserved a block of rooms in these two hotels at a reduced rate:

For both cases, please use the code ECRTS11 to make your reservation.

Other Hotel Sugestions

There are also other alternatives in the city for every budget.

In the five-star list we can recommend Infante Sagres (web), Porto Palácio (web) and Yeatman (web).

The Grande Hotel Porto (web) offers old style luxury at affordable prices. Starting at roughly € 85 it is situated in Rua Santa Catarina, which is one of the traditional, pedestrian shopping areas in Porto.

On the cost-focused side, the Star Inn (web) is a low-cost design hotel with single rooms starting at € 35 and you can even walk to the conference location (25 minutes).
