What are the accommodation options this year?
There are a range of accommodation options at Limmud Conference this year, depending on your preferences for location, budget, room type and sharing options:
Similar to last year, on-site accommodation is available in the Hilton, Crowne Plaza (Families) and Gentings (Premium) hotels; off-site is available at the Ibis (a 15 minute walk) and other Economy hotels (a 25 minute walk). Minibus transport from all off-site hotels will be provided free of charge.
All non-Families accommodation is available for both individuals (Single) and couples (Double); all rooms other than Premium are also available for shared occupancy with two single beds (Twin).
If you wish to share your room with a partner or friend, you will be able to indicate this on the application form. You do not need to submit your booking at exactly the same time, but you will both need to be attending Conference for the same period, select the same type of accommodation, and name each other as preferred roommate on the application form.
If you are not coming to Conference with a partner or friend, a popular option is to be paired up in a shared room with two single beds. You can indicate this option on the application form by booking a Twin room. Our capable accommodation team will match you up with a suitable roommate, and it’s a great way to meet new people.
For a small increase in cost, single accommodation is available in all hotels (apart from the Crowne Plaza) if you'd prefer not to share your bedroom.

In order to make Conference as affordable as possible, Economy, Ibis and Hilton rooms will not be cleaned as standard during your stay. Room cleaning, additional towels and toiletries for Economy, Ibis and Hilton rooms may be available directly from the hotel for a small fee - more details will be available closer to Conference.
As we have negotiated a group rate, it will not be possible to accrue loyalty points from any of the hotels for your stay at Limmud Conference.
Economy accommodation will be in hotels located approximately a 25 minute walk from the Hilton. We will provide free onsite shuttle buses stopping at all hotels throughout the day.
There are 169 single bedrooms in the Hilton Metropole which we will be using for Limmud Conference 2016. These particular rooms do not have a bathroom door. Rather a contemporary screen separates the bathroom area from the rest of the bedroom. If you would prefer to have a traditional room with a lockable bathroom door then please contact the Limmud Office.
Each booking will be subject to a room deposit of £25 per adult, to cover our costs in the unlikely event of damage or late check-out (please see below for further details). Deposits will be refundable after Conference.
Though we are staying in highly rated hotels, in order to keep the standard cost of coming to Conference as low as possible, certain facilities will have a nominal extra charge including:
- Entry to the swimming pool, the spa and gym (£3 per entry per person)
- Additional towels and toiletries for the room (£2 for extra towels; £2 for extra toiletries)
- A refresh of the tea and coffee facilities in the room (£2 per refresh)
- If you want to use such services, you will need to pay the relevant hotel directly who may request a credit card deposit.
