DjangoCon Europe, 2nd to 7th June 2015, in Cardiff, Wales. 6 days of talks, tutorials and code.

Accommodation

Accommodation in Cardiff is reasonably inexpensive, and most of Cardiff’s hotels are in the city centre and a short walk from our venues. We strongly advise you to book sooner rather than later to be sure of getting a convenient and affordable room - especially if you’re staying for the sprints.

Get organised with our wiki

Other hotels

Check sites such as Hotels.com and Booking.com for other hotels (apparently if you put your browser into private or incognito mode, you can sometimes get different, better, prices).

Some hotels don’t even appear on those sites; you need to go to their websites directly:

  • Travelodge HotelsThere are several Travelodges in Cardiff, including one very close to City Hall and one very close to Cardiff Central Railway station.
  • Premier InnOn Churchill Way, about ten minutes' walk from City Hall.

Location location location

You’ll have most fun at DjangoCon if you’re staying somewhere a short walk from City Hall and the University, our venues.

Having trouble?

Maybe you can’t find a city centre hotel you can afford. Or perhaps your hotel doesn’t have rooms on all the days you want, or you need to stay in Cardiff after the event and the One Direction fans have taken all the rooms…

Don’t worry.

  • find a room-mate on the conference wiki
  • look a bit further on the edges of the map provided above - Cardiff’s smaller than you think
  • consider staying in Cardiff Bay - the train takes just a few minutes to get to Queen Street or Cathays stations, both a short walk from City Hall
  • do a search for B&B or guest house accommodation, as well as hotels
  • have a look on Wimdu and Airbnb
  • share a room with a fellow Djangonaut: save money, and make more rooms available for others - we’ll publish details on how to arrange sharing
  • stay with a local Djangonaut: a number of people will be able to offer you a spare room for a night or several - see the conference wiki
  • if you find yourself in a real fix, get in touch with us
