The Faculty of Arts and the Faculty of Architecture are situated in the so-called business district, not far from the city centre and the throbbing leisure district, and ideally located close to several hotels, restaurants and to the exciting Casa da Música. Although the University of Porto offers several accommodation possibilities within a short distance of the Faculty, including a very limited number of inexpensive single bedrooms and en-suite rooms in halls of residence for doctoral students and academic visitors, unfortunately these are insufficient to host all conference participants.

However, there is a wide offer of off-campus possibilities, from bed-and-breakfasts and budget hotels to five-star hotels. The IAFL Porto 2017 Organising Committee has negotiated special rates for conference participants, who can choose from a wide range of accommodation possibilities. Most of the places that we recommend are within a walking distance of the conference venue, but delegates will also be offered the possibility to choose other recommended places, if they find such offers to be more suitable (for instance, new high quality budget hotels have opened in the beautiful city centre).

Participants are expected to book their own hotels, as accommodation is not included in the registration. We also recommend that conference participants book their accommodation as soon as possible, since Porto has become a very popular destination, since it was elected the European Best Destination in 2014.

In order to benefit from the discounted rates offered by these hotels, participants should follow the procedures described for each hotel. Please note that the offer is subject to availability, since some of these hotels have a small number of rooms.
