GODOLLO TRAVEL GUIDE

This page is a guide only. The page contains recommendations from either TMs, Referees or Parents from previous seasons.  Venues or official hotels may change for the current season so we recommend that you check the reglement’s before confirming any travel arrangements and if you are booking hotels before the reglement is out we advise you may want to consider booking with free cancellation as it is not guaranteed that competition details will stay the same.

Hotels
Dormitory of Szent István University (onsite)
If staying in the university, we would advise taking some extra supplies for breakfast (porridge pots, cereal bars, etc).
Hotel Queen Elizabeth (1.6km from venue)
As accommodation is limited it needs to be booked through the organisers as early as possible. Do not book Mater Salvatoris House.  If this is the only option available book accommodation further away via another source. There is other accommodation available to book on booking.com which is further away from the venue, meaning you would need to book a taxi for transport.

Flights
There are a good range of flights to Budapest Airport from airports across the UK.

Transfers
There are transfers offered by the organisers. The transfers to and from the venue are limited so there may be a wait.
