Hotel & Accomodation Info

Post by Shadow 14 »

I have gotten a good fixed rate for the Acora, which is the hotel where 70-80% of the players are staying during Star Wars events. Please note that I personally am not from Bochum. I’m from 3 hours away, and will stay in the hotel myself. Otherwise I would have taken a lot of my buddies from the US crash at my place. Even Angelo is 40 minutes away, and usually also stays in the Acora.

Hotel Address:
Acora Hotel und Wohnen Bochum
Nordring 50
44787 Bochum

Email: bochum@acora.de
https://www.novum-hotels.com/en/acora-h ... nen-bochum


Prices:
70 Euro /night for a double room
81 Euro /night for a triple room
62 Euro /night for a single room

Please reserve your hotel at the email above and mention the codeword "Star Wars Worlds" and the special rates.


More infos:
There is NO longer a city tax in Bochum (the above rates are your fixed rates). Tax are also included in the above price.
Breakfast is NOT included in the above rate. It costs approx. 15 € prt person. There is breakfast in the tournament location, too.
Parking space is NOT included. There is a parking garage for 8 € per night/vehicle.
10-15 min walk or 1 stop with the metro U35 to the tournament location (Station "Feldsieper Str."). Approx. 8 Euro by cap/taxi.
15-20 min walk or 2 stops to main station / city centre.


Alternate Hotel Infos:

Honestly, at the current rate (27 Euro per person in a triple room or 30 in a double), I did NOT ask for special rates at the nearby hostel Aleo again.
They charge 24 € per night in the hostel (when you sleep in the 7-8 people room), so you might as well "upgrade" to the Acora. Anyway, the address is listed here. Our Polish players are staying in a more distant hotel/hostel, which is way less expensive, but 30 minutes away by car away.

Is the hotel refundable, or should we wait until we're sure we're attending before we book? How long will this rate be available for?

I have a contingent of 20 rooms for now, and they are available till 2 months before the event (then they will be offered to the public again).

The rooms are refundable free of charge until 1 week before the event. After that you'll have to pay for it.

Awesome!

Maybe all the players that book at the Acora can post here, so that I see when I need to react by getting more rooms or so.

Do you want me to do it for you, or send them an email yourself?

Everybody just mention "Star Wars Worlds" in the reservation mail to get the good rates. You will probably have to pay upon arrival at the venue.

Did they ask you to print out and sign a contract and scan and email it back to them?

What kind of contract did you guys have to sign? We never had to do that. I mean, I personally did to get a group rate, but you should just be able to book.

No, that is just the credit card confirmation to guarantee your booking.

All good, you can sign that and send back.
