The Airbnbwebsite also offers great alternatives. By booking directly on the web is the easiest - and cheapest - way to book a room. Never the less we were able to reserve 20 beds at an excellent small historic guesthouse in a walking distance to the National Museum where the conference will be held. It is called Guesthouse Galtafell, (www.guesthousegaltafell.is) situated in a quiet but central street near the pond (Tjörnin). It is very suitable for those who travel together as the house consists of both double/twin rooms and/or small apartments. The price is also pleasantly surprising... Please contact GuesthouseGaltafell if you want to book a room/bed, directly to ms. Þórey Bjarnadóttir: firstname.lastname@example.org or tel. +354-699 2525. The rooms are reserved to the 15th of April for ARLIS/Norden (Gróa Finnsdóttir).
In addition we have reserved 6 rooms at Hotel Saga untill the end of February. Please make the booking through: Gróa Finnsdóttir - email@example.com
For your knowledge the conference fee is ÍSKR 42.000 (Icelandic króna) and includes e.g. the conference dinner on Friday night, but not the day tour on Saturday. Still, we are optimistic and hope we will be able to provide ARLIS/Nordens´ participants with some travel grants if the sponsors will be generous enough to us.... Therefore we encourage you to register to the conference as soon as the registration begins on the 20th of February. We are very grateful for your patience and... please remember to book a hotelroom ! If you´ll have any question at all or need some help with the booking then please contactGróa Finnsdóttir (firstname.lastname@example.org) who are more than happy to assist you!
