Hotels in town

ALL regular participants have to make their own bookings. This table presents a list of hotels with which we are accustomed to work, conveniently located in the center of Grenoble, near bus and tram stops or near the train station. The ESRF benefits from special room rates in some of them (see "Comments")

Note:  tram B is joining the 'Avenue des Martyrs'  to downtown Grenoble in 15mn, therefore public transportation will be easy to downtown hotels.
