For those participants who may want to spend a few days in Madrid or El Escorial before or after the meeting, we are currently elaborating a list of recommended places to stay, usually on the less expensive side and at reasonable locations. Please keep in mind that at any time now any of these hotels may or may not have that wonderful offer you are looking for and for the right days, but otherwise don't be surprised if you discover that the typical price of a good hotel in June is from 150 € up. Just click on each link to see the pictures, rates, contact details, etc.
This page will be under construction for a while and the list may change periodically as we discover new details.

Accomodation in El Escorial:
- Hotel Victoria Palace (best hotel in town)
- Best Western Hotel Florida (a less spacious but pleasant hotel)
- Hostal Cristina (a pleasant-looking bed & breakfast, right by Victoria Palace)

Accomodation in Madrid, near the airport (we recommend this only for a short stay):
- Hotel Tryp Diana (near the Fair Grounds)
- Hotel Auditorium (new hotel, on the way to the airport, frequently offers special discounts)

Accomodation in downtown Madrid but near the important train stations (Atocha, Chamartín):
- Hotel Husa Chamartín (located right above the Chamartín train station)
- Hotel NH Nacional (a nice building by the Atocha Station)
- Hotel México (an inexpensive, clean, and quiet place near the Atocha Station, Botanical Garden, and the three main art museums)

Accomodation at some other downtown hotels in Madrid
- Gran Hotel Conde Duque (a classy hotel in a quiet area which often has economical rates)
- Intur Palacio San Martín (an excellent hotel at a historical downtown location)
- NH Sanvy (quite near the Columbus Square, at the best neighborhood in Madrid, "Barrio de Salamanca")
- Hotel Victoria 4 (a new hotel in historical downtown)
- Vincci Capitol (at a busy but great downtown location)
- NH Bretón (in a comercial and business district)
- Best Western Carlos V (at the heart of Madrid, by Puerta del Sol)


Apartment complexes for short-term rentals (you can rent from them for a couple of days, a week, or longer; most will have a reception desk where the staff speaks English, daily cleaning, and a bar for breakfast and snacks; you will also have your own kitchen where you can prepare the food yourself; what will differ from one place to another is the location or how new the place is):
- Arturo Soria Suites (a newer place on the NE side of the city, near a residential area)
- Apartamentos Recoletos (an older place but the location is magnificent, by the Columbus Square, National Library, and Wax Museum)
- A & H International Apartments (near the Avenida de América Bus/Subway Station and the National Music Auditorium)
