The venue is at the heart of Helsinki, and there are lots of accommodation possibilities available. However, the first weeks of June are a somewhat busy time in Helsinki hotels, so an early booking may be well-advised. We encourage also browsing the Helsinki accommodation options via e.g. booking.com.
