Accommodation in BogorThe SAGE 2017 conference venue (Salak Tower Hotel) is just north of the Bogor Botanic Gardens, which are at the heart of the city and around them a wide range of comfortable and affordable accommodation is available. The area can be reached easily from Jakarta airport, being just a few minutes off the Bogor-Jakarta motorway (toll road) and the DAMRI buses from the airport (see travel information page) have their terminal at Botani Square Mall close to the gardens.
The easiest option is to book a room at the conference hotel when registering for the meeting. Conference participants get rooms at a heavily discounted rate of 30 € /31 US$ per night/person including breakfast and dinner for the four nights of the conference days (check-in August 28 - 31) and a slightly reduced rate of 50 € / 52 US$ per night/person including breakfast for the two preceding nights if you wish to arrive earlier (check-in August 26 - 27).
The Salak Tower Hotel is a decent ****hotel, all rooms come with a/c, private bathroom, and complimentary WIFI.
You are of course free to book your own accommodation and hotels of a comparable standard with complimentary breakfast start from about 39 €/43 US$ if you book online. A few tested options include Fave Hotel Padjajaran, Santika Hotel and Hotel Royal Amaroosa.
