Hotel Information


We have now streamlined the hotel booking process for the Sammelan and you can submit your hotel booking requests in the form below to book rooms or cancel/modify your bookings at the specially negotiated rates. Once you submit your hotel reservation request we will ask you to provide payment details and then we will provide you the hotel booking confirmation. Since the hotel rooms have been negotiated at rates significantly below market rates via contracts that guarantee payment to the hotels, we're requiring full payment for the rooms. In the event that you need to cancel a confirmed hotel reservation, a one day room rate will be retained as cancellation fee. Please remember that the hotel rooms will be booked based on availability. Since the Sammelan starts on the afternoon of Saturday (around 4 pm), July 2nd, and will conclude on Monday, July 4th night (around 11 pm), you are advised to book your return flights and hotel check-out on Tuesday the 5th of July or later.
