CERN Hostel

A limited number of rooms has been booked at the CERN hostel. These are very nice and convenient, and therefore highly demanded. They will be issued on a first come first served basis.  If you would like to book one of these rooms from our block, please contact Michelle.Connor@cern.ch


list of suggested hotels in the area is provided on the CERN housing service webpage. Special rates are usually applied for CERN visitors. 

Notice that the main CERN entrance is in Switzerland, while some of the suggested hotels are located in France. Public transportation from locations in Geneva, Meyrin or Cointrin is efficient, but not from hotels located on the french side. 

On general grounds we recommend hotels in downtown Geneva (unless you have a car). A convenient area to connect with public transportation to CERN is the Cornavin train station, which is also close to the city center.
