SteemFest² Updates - Hotel(s) Booking Site Now Available!

in steemfest •  2 years ago

Thank you for your overwhelming support on the SteemFest² announcement post. Very humbling and great to see so many of you can make it or trying to make it to SteemFest² in Lisbon on 1/2/3 (4/5) November.

In the past 10 days I have been working more on defining some locations for social night time events and talking with potential speakers. Soon the first speakers will be announced, as well as the ticket prices, bear with me please.

The gist of the program is also finalised and introduces a DIY Best of Lisbon Weekender City Trip for the weekend after the main event:

Tue 31 OctoberHackathon attendees should arrive.
Wed 1st November24hr Hackathon and 'regular attendees' arrive. Welcome drinks at night.
Thu 2 NovemberSteemFest Conference Day 1.
Fri 3 NovemberSteemFest Conference Day 2.
4 + 5 November(optional) DIY Best of Lisbon Weekender City Trip: explore lisbon, follow the must-sees from locals, with some planned activities and a closing dinner on Sunday.

HF Hotéis Fénix - SteemFest² Official Hotels
Booking site: steemfest2017.hfhotels.com

So yes, of course you need a place to stay and I have researched Lisbon's hotel offering to come up with a nice combination between price, quality and availability and found HF Hotels very open to offering a special price.

This year the official SteemFest² hotel is actually a chain of 4 hotels, of which 3 hotels are literally neighbouring to one-another and one branch at 500 meter walk of the other three.

So, why 4 hotels?

Combining these 4 hotels brings the availability to the lowest prices possible and additionally there is some choice for you to pick in diversity in amenities in the hotels (star level / design) and rooms. Many twin bedded rooms are also available so you can easy find a roommate and share a room to lower the price even more for your total stay.

The HF Hotéis Fénix of Lisbon for SteemFest²:


1.★★★HF Musicbrand new with a swimming pool on top€ 84.00
2.★★★HF Gardenbuild in 2008 with several awards and a city garden€ 75.00
3.★★★★HF Lisboacosmopolitan 4 star hotel with city garden and spacious lobby - this will be the SteemFest homebase€ 97.00
4.★★★★HF Urbanspacious rooms (at 500 meter walk from the above 3 hotels)€ 81.00



All hotels include:

  • Free Wifi
  • Free breakfast
  • Metro stop around the corner
  • Steemians!

The hotels are situated in the very city center, at Praça Marquês de Pombal, directly opposite the Parque Eduardo VII and will form an ideal base for exploring Lisbon during the DIY Best of Lisbon Weekender City Trip as well as our explorations to various SteemFest Conference locations. There is a metro stop at the Praça Marquês de Pombal and by special aerobus (direct - € 3.60) or metro (1 transfer - € 1.95) or uber (X - € 10) your are only 15 minutes away from the airport.

Reservation remarks:

  • The link to the special SteemFest 2017 hotel site (steemfest2017.hfhotels.com) will be up until September 5th. Prices may change after that, provided if there are still rooms available by then.
  • Book rather sooner then later. On 3,4,5 November the Volvo Ocean Race comes to Lisbon. On 6 November the Web Summit starts. In other words: things might get crowded in Lisbon and you could miss out... FOMO!
  • The reservations are guaranteed by a valid credit card: VISA, Mastercard, Dinners Club, and American Express.
  • Check In: from 2:00 PM (Local time).
  • Check Out: until 12:00 AM (Local time).
  • The total amount of the first night will be charged 48 hours before the arrival - non-refundable.
  • Cancelation free up to 48 hours before the arrival (2:00 pm - local time).

Additional room types are also available...!

Check the hotel site directly for room types like:

  • Rooms for people with reduced mobility
  • Family room: up to 4 persons (might have bunk bed)
  • Prestige & Suite rooms
  • Rooms with terrace / balcony and park view

Once you found a hotelroom not mentioned on the special SteemFest 2017 HF Hotels Reservation Site, use the contact box on the right side menu bar to inquire a personal offer for one of the rooms you would like to stay in. Also, when availability starts running low, contact the hotel through that contact box instantly to get a custom offer.

Some hotel impressions:





View from Parque Eduardo VII on the 3 main hotels

How long should I stay?

  1. If you are joining the hackathon (more info soon - subscribe here) check-in on 31st of October
  2. If you are a regular attendee, check-in on November 1.
  3. If you stay for the DIY Best of Lisbon Weekender so you actually can enjoy the city next to the full SteemFest Conference program and closing dinner on Sunday, checkout on monday 6 november.
  4. If you want to just stay for the SteemFest Conference, that will end on 3 November after 2 full days of panels, presentations, discussions, awards, workshops and social events (would still recommend to checkout on 4 November as we end friday with a blast :D), but just go for option 3 and stay for the weekend!

Vamonoooos

Quiero iiirrrrr jajajaja.

I managed to book the fenix garden hotel via hotels.com at a cheaper price for the same dates with free cancellation. Used topcashback.co.uk and got 10% cash back. The non refundable rooms are even cheaper at hotels.com. Hope this helps people save more money !

·

Great hack gyanibilli!

Thank you @roelandp, my husband and I are looking forward to meeting everyone.

Good job. that looks amazing. I just can't wait

I reserved a 2 single bed room in the one with the swimming pool so if you are interesting to share let me know :)

https://QUE.com - I follow all who followed me. I think that's fair :)

So amazing!!! I will attend to hackathon... can't wait! Who will attend too?

Wow. I have to first apply to get my passport, and I will be doing this shortly.
If all goes as planned, I'm coming this year.
Let's talk. I'm interested for sure...

·

I'm on the same boat as you are hhaha!

·

Yes get that passport already!

·
·

No i have to wait 15 days to get it

As much as I'd like to just go the site and book the hotel tickets and maybe share a room with @firepower, I can't! :( Probably next time! Have fun everyone!

Cool, thinking about attending.

Working on getting my passport now! I hope I can go :)

Way to Go @rolandp, @saramiller was talking about how awesome the last one was. Looks like we can expect even more this go around! Super excited!

Wow this is awesome. Thank you for doing all this work to organize.

Not sure I can be there this time but hopefully next time, look forward to all the reports back.

I might go to SteemFest on my caravan / motorhome, if I actually manage to start up the engine again. Been two years since I last drove it around.

:(

·

Err... I don't think this baby will hit the road any time soon. :(

·
·

New Cap, new rotor, new belts &hoses, change the fluids and install a new battery. Fire that thing up check the tires and brakes. Road trip next stop Lisbon

;) When to wait for SteemFest² in Ukraine?

·

There is a golosfest next month in Moscow!

·
·

Golos - not Steem & Moscow - not Ukraine)))
Thank @roelandp!

Fantastic organization @roelandp - thanks for making this accessible to as many members of steemit as possible.

This is AWESOME!!! The perfect post for planning a trip to Lisbon!

I can hardly believe I won't be able to make it to this second annual SteemFest... Grrrrr! From what I gather here, you'll be suffering in luxury and, as far as I know, great company! ;)

Have a blast, keep on thriving and namaste :)

I would quite like to be a speaker this year.

Hi @roelandp,

Can you give a rough estimate on how many spaces will be available for Steemfest 2? Please assuage my FOMO...

Same as Steemfest Amsterdam? More? Many more?

·

double of amsterdam could fit in the locations. I hope we get to 150% this year.

·
·

Will any talks be live streamed?

·
·
·

yes most probably, working again on a livestream solution, just like last year

It's amazing to see an event of this size for a platform just a year old.
For people who have been before. What kind of audience are these events for? Is it mainly a developer scene or is it for anyone?
I run an agency here in the UK offering digital marketing and I'm looking to help support any new Steem platforms with their launch and marketing plans. I think Steem will be huge in a few years and want to freely support anyone helping it grow.

you said the magic words. Blockchain Hackathon and steemfest. sis and I got our passports

Awesome, plenty of ppl have been waiting for this :) hit me up if you guys need help with anything. I've also sent some donations to the travel fund recently. Thanks for updating us @roelandp, venue looks great!

·

thanks kevin, noticed! Are you thinking about coming to EU once more?

·
·

Yes of course!

·
·
·

waaaaahhhhhhhhh!!!!!

Nice location!

That looks amazing. Definitely an upgrade compared to last year's rooms!

Great job, @roelandp. I envy you for organizing this!

·

I actually loved our rooms last year though :)

·
·

Yeah it was pretty neat. Had a cool ambience!

This is so incredibly exciting, I would LOVE to be a part of it. Do you know how late in the day one can book? I won't know my schedule or finances till the end of August. Sounds like it's going to be amazing!!

Have Fun! I upvoted and just started following you

This is such an awesome event. Looks like attendees will have a great opportunity to network! To all those able to attend have a blast!

THIS is fantastic. In love with its design. Keep up the great work :)

·

whats up you funny man? lol please follow me

I will try to get more Steemers involved. Let's see how big we can make SteemFest!

I wish I lived near Lisbon... Maybe I will get enough upvotes on this to fund my trip!

Seems that all preliminary preparations are done. Missed out the first steemfest. Hope i can make it to this one.

@Roelanp please check my post out, I want to give these shirts to the attendees of Steemfest. Let's get in contact I would like to discuss with you how I can get these into the hands of people at steemfest. Thanks much <3

Original Post: https://steemit.com/steemfest/@epicdesigns/steemfest-t-shirts-giveaway

this sounds fantastic !! This 75.00 per night how much is that Canadian !? Same with the steem fest tickets , how much is it Canadian !? And is it cheaper if I book a room for the 5 or 6 day Long event !? Any ideas on the price of airfare from Kelowna to steem fest !? Haha I would love to go if I can get a passport but The cost in Canadian money is confusing me as to how much its really going to be , at the lowest prices possible , maybe you guys have a full package deal , room and steem fest tickets combined !? Thanks a bunch !! I will keep dreaming !! 👍👍👍

Great! Happy for all of you can go!
When in Italy? :P

Booked 💪😄
