For participants staying at Universitas Hotel

Saturday 12 September 2015, by Mihai Maga

The easiest way of getting from the airport to the university hotel is by taking a taxi. This will cost you somewhere around 10 Euro, depending on the traffic.

The address of the hotel is: Hotel UNIVERSITAS - Babes Bolyai University Hotel, Pandurilor Street, No.7 (entrance from Plopilor Street), Cluj-Napoca.

Phone: +40 264 429 788

Just give this address to the taxi driver.

The easiest way of getting from the university hotel to the conference venue (Kogălniceanu Street, no. 1, the central location of the Babeş- Bolyai University) is by taking the tram and then walking for a short distance.

Take tram 101 (Bucium-> P-ţa. Gării) from the station on Plopilor Street, in the direction P-ţa. Gării. Get off the tram at the G. Bariţiu Station. From there, walk until the first intersection and then go right on Ferdinand Street. Walk until the end of Ferdinand Street (you pass the Museum of Pharmacy). At the end of Ferdinand Street, turn right on Memorandumului Street and walk until the first intersection. Cross the street and walk straight ahead (parallel with the Saint Michael Church) until you reach the next intersection. Then cross the street again and walk straight ahead (on the University Street) until you see an orange building on your left. When you see that building go left and you are on Kogălniceanu Street. Once on Kogălniceanu Street, the orange building (also known as the Echinox Building) is on your right and the University (the conference venue) is on your left.

You can also take a taxi from your hotel, but given the traffic, the route that I have just described might be faster and far more pleasant. In case you really want to take a taxi, you can ask the receptionist in the hotel lobby to call one for you.

The price of a single room is 70 lei/night; the price of a double room is 100 lei/night (the cost of a bed in such a room is of 50 lei/night); breakfast is not included in this price; it cost an extra 15 lei/day and you can order it, if you want, and pay for it at the end of your stay.
