  • Hey, We are trying to organize a Hackathon from Friday Jan 21rst to Sunday Jan 23rd. We would need to have a room enough to sit at least 200 people with wifi and outlets. It would be great if the room also had a stage. Would that possible? If so, how much would it cost?

    Good morning From Hotel university, We are sorry to inform that we don't have hall or room for 200 people. Best regards

  • What do you mean when you say additional charges may apply ?

    Dear Sir, It's a generic formula used by for costs not included in the price such as local taxes. For example, the rates of hotels in Bologna do not include the tourist tax. These costs cannot be calculated before check-in.
