Congress Hotels

A number of Hotels rooms have been blocked to guarantee accommodation for IUCr participants. All official congress hotels are within 10 km of the HICC. All IUCr participants booked through Conference website and staying at the official congress hotels can avail free shuttle service at fixed timings from their hotels to the HICC and back.

Due to the fact that the venue is located in the North-Western end of Hyderabad, special care has been taken in selecting hotels within an easy reach of the venue by shuttles.
