Places to Stay
Last year we stayed in Renaissance Brussels Hotel. If you want breakfast (it's awesome!), better book directly at the hotel, they have a weekend special (99 EUR Double/night). If not, book through booking.com, they have better rates, but it seems like there aren't too many open twin rooms.
FOSDEM organizers have arranged some discounts or special deals like free wifi at certain hotels. Find the list on the FOSDEM website.

To and From
- There's a direct bus-connection from the airport to the Renaissance. Simply take Line 12 (faster) or 21 (slower) to Place du Luxembourg, then it's just 2min walk to the hotel.
- Map (from last year) showing off a few of the important places.
Last year we spent Friday afternoon in "The Beer Factory", Place Du Luxembourg, 6. (2min walk from the Renaissance.) We could simply meet there again, as most of us will be in Brussels in the afternoon. — Simon Steinbeiss 2013/01/29 10:18
- I will arrive at 11:20 at Brussels airport, will then take a bus and will be at the hotel at 12:30 the latest (I guess). Meeting in the lobby sounds like a good plan if we all manage to get a room at the Renaissance. — Simon Steinbeiss 2013/01/06 18:29
- I'll be in 'le central' pub http://osm.org/go/0EoS_axhX-- friday evening in case you guys are not too far away — gaston
