Booking accommodation for GRAPPA @ 5 is the responsibility of the participant. Amsterdam is a busy capital city with a wide range of hostels, hotels and Air B'n'B opportunities to offer, but it is recommended that participants do not leave it too late to book, as October tends to be a busy month in terms of Amsterdam-based conferences and events.
For those seeking inspiration, the hotels below have all been tried and tested by guests at the Institute of Physics.
