Accommodation

Accommodation is plentiful in Odesa and ranges from renting a small room from a local resident to registered hostels, to the more expensive hotels. The organizers are not responsible for guest accommodation, and you can find a hotel of the desired category on the booking site, where all types of accommodation are available. The conference hall is located in the center of the city, so we recommend choosing a hotel in this area. The center of the city can be crossed by a 20-minute walk.
