We will be staying at the DoubleTree by Hilton Wrocław City Centre hotel. It is located, as the name indicates, a short walk to the city center, Old Town Market Square (shown below), and the National Museum. A tram stop is just a block away.

For rates, click the blue section below on this page that says "Make a hotel room reservation."

The nearest major airport is Wrocław Airport (WRO/EPWR) which is 11 km from the hotel. There is no hotel shuttle but later we will have information on how best to get to the hotel.
