Hi Nick,

On the agenda page linked below, there are three nearby hotels. There are also some others in the surrounding that are listed on the "directions page" from FIT (which is also linked from the agenda page). Finally, if none of these hotels work for you, there is a link to a hotel service in Bonn linked from the directions page. Please let me know if you have trouble.

Regards,
  Shadi
