Spanish and Portuguese Society for English Renaissance Studies
22nd INTERNATIONAL SEDERI CONFERENCE
Universidad Nacional de Educación a Distancia (UNED),
Madrid, 23-25 March 2011.
UNED has no colleges or halls of residence because the institution is conceived as a distance learning university. However, Madrid offers a wide variety of accommodation from luxury five-star hotels to inexpensive "hostales" (hostels) and "pensiones" (bed and breakfast) to suit your preferences and budget. We suggest that you should make your own accommodation arrangements well in advance. If you are interested in staying not too far from the conference venue, you may find these four hotels convenient and reasonably priced.
IMPORTANT TIP: check the online prices offered by the hotel website and possible offers indicated on the online reservations websites indicated below. You might get a better price if you don't book your room directly with the hotel).
