Participants will stay at Germir Palas Hotel located in Taksim Square which is at the heart of the city. To reach the hotel from Istanbul Atatürk Airport you can take a taxi (which should cost around 15 EURO) or use the airport buses which go to Taksim (which should cost around 5 EURO). Once you arrive to the Taksim bus stop, which is the terminus of that route, the hotel is just across the main street. You can get more information about the bus service at http://www.havasturizm.com.tr/en/otobus_istanbul.asp
