RECOMMENDED ACCOMODATION
There is an agreement with Hilton Cyprus (about 5 kms from the venue) (www.cyprus.hilton.com) for special rates. Provided that the booking is made via Cynet, the rate is: 110euro/single and 144euro/double).
Other suggestions are Semeli Hotel (very close to Hilton) (https://www.semelihotel.com.cy/) and for those who want to be right next to the venue (but rather far from the city centre) is UC Hall Residence (https://uchall.com.cy/en/).

GETTING TO THE VENUE AND USEFUL TIPS

The best way to get around is by taxi. Bus service is rather limited.

TIP #1: 
I would suggest landing at Larnaca airport, which is much closer to Nicosia than the Pafos one!

TIP #2:
The weather will be hot, so bring light clothing!

TIP #3: 
Electricity plugs in Cyprus are G type – UK like.
