Our conference hotel is the Clarion Hotel Astoria, where we have negotiated a special rate. Other good options are the  First Hotel Victoria and Scandic Hotel. The least expensive possibilites are Hamar Hostel Vikingship (which also has apartments), Seierstad Pensionat, and Bellevue Bed & Breakfast (both of which have student rates). Read on for more information.

Conference hotel

We have negotiated a special rate with a local hotel for conference participants, and the hotel is holding rooms available for your booking: a total of 52 single rooms and 44 double rooms.

To get our special conference rate, you must book your room by 17 April 2020.

After 17 April 2020, you may still book a room (if available) at this hotel, but you are not guaranteed rhe conference rate (and they have a limited number of rooms; see above).
