Accommodation

Unfortunately SLE has no capacities to provide accomodation or transport during your stay.

In the past SLE Training participants regularly stayed at the university guesthouse which can be fully recommended by us.

The rent for four weeks is between €450 and €560 per person per room. An additional overnight stay will cost approx. €50 per night. The guesthouse is modest but safe and located in the centre of Berlin within walking distance of SLE. Participants staying at this guesthouse should arrive before 10 p.m. on the day of their arrival.

The guesthouse is usually in heavy demand during the summer. We nevertheless encourage participants to enquire at the guesthouse about room availability and costs.

Other international agencies can be reached via the European Shared Accommodation Ring (Ring Europäischer Mitwohnzentralen e.V. - REM) using the nationwide number 19430 preceded by the relevant local dialling code (for example, 030 -19430 in Berlin or 0228-19430 in Bonn) or by visiting the REM website at: www.mitwohnzentrale.de.

Ask for an accommodation request form (Vermittlungsauftrag) where you can specify your wishes. It is worth following up your request with all of these agencies at regular intervals. Never pay charges in advance. Agencies are only permitted to charge a commission if a legally binding rent agreement has already been signed.
