Regional capital in the heart of the French Alps and Olympic city, Grenoble offers a wide choice of accommodation. The Grenoble tourism office web pages are a good source of information concerning various forms of accomodation in the city and its surroundings.
The average price per night is around 70 euros. Most hôtels in town are concentrated in the city historical center or near the train station. Both places are convenient choices as they are served by the tramway system, which connects the city to campus (it takes about 25 minutes from the train station to campus on the tramway line B).
Grenoble can experience high temperatures in the summer: we recommend that you check that air-conditionning is available when booking a room.
