Together with the Tourist Bureau of Clermont-Ferrand, we have chosen 5  hotels (** and ***) just close to the Streetcar route (= tram track)
(direct connection to the central part of the town as well as to the Conference center) and made pre-reservation so that you may find rooms available.
Four of these hotel are located at a short walk distance from the Conference Center (and from Montferrand),  and one is located closer to the old city of Clermont and to Clermont downtown.
These pre-reserved rooms will be sell on a "first come first served" basis.
