Transportation & accommodation






  • Some of us will stay at Hotel Villa Royale.
    During all previous Fosdems since Mageia was born, some of our contributors stayed there. We can give good marks. It now (beginning of January 2017) costs € 60 for a single person per night, taxes and breakfast included.
  • An alternative could be Hotel Bristol Stephanie.
    It's somewhat near Fosdem (3km) and near Gran Place (2km), very luxurious. Single room € /night; double room €; club room (4persons) € . Not included: breakfast buffet €/person; city tax €/room.
  • Hotel Sabina. Call them directly to have breakfast included in the price (~46 € for 1 night for 1 person-room, including tax & breakfast). Near Metro Madou which is one change from Fosdem and near Brussel Zuid (Bruxelles Midi) train station.

Take care with the announced prices: usually breakfast is from 12 to 16 €, and tax is 4 € per night. Call them directly rather than booking via platforms :-). Confirm by mail to know what you're paying for.

NH Brussels Louise at least one Mageian will be staying there this year!

Resume of the Fosdem 2019

  • we could have given some stickers to our Fedora/Centos friends (not the kakemono!), even our openSuse friends could have given some help (they had good beers)
  • game engine godot had a stand in K2, made good conference (prouding blender, gimp...)
  • ask for a stand in september, have some conf' to propose at the same time may help
  • another great time meeting people we only see on IRC or forums or at events from time to time :-)
  • as usual, the dinner was (not-)organized ; anyone knowing well Bruxelles can involve next year in 2020 to benefit from the best cooking in Bruxelles :D
  • good conferences everywhere, too hard to enter some rooms
  • <your own impressions, just add them below>
