Accommodation at the Patch -p2 hackathon
The hackathon hotel
The hotel we selected for the hackathon is: Campanile Lyon Centre Part-Dieu. It's located 31 rue Maurice Flandrin, at La Part-Dieu.
We have pre-booked a number of twin rooms. Please contact Philippe Bruhat (BooK) if you want to use one of these rooms. Arrange room sharing on the accommodation details wiki page.
The airport is Lyon Saint-Exupéry (LYS).
The Rhônexpress shuttle from the airport makes for an easy ride to the Part-Dieu station (the stop is right between the train station and the hotel). Shuttles depart every 15 minutes, and the ride takes less than 30 minutes and costs €14.50 for a single and €25.50 for a return ticket. You can buy tickets in advance at the official website.
A taxi to Part-Dieu would cost bout €40, for about the same transit time, so it's only really worth it if there are 3 or 4 people sharing the ride.
The Lyon Part-Dieu train station is literaly across the street from the hotel.
The train station has two exits: make sure you exit on the side of platform K. You should see the hotel across the tram lines and the car park from the station.
Lyon has a dense public transport network consisting of bus, trolleybus, tram, and metro. For most of the hackathon-related commutes, everything should be in walking distance. Official website of Transports en Commun Lyonnais.
