From Oslo Gardermoen airport
Unless you arrive very late (after 00:15), the best way to Quality Hotel 33 is to take the airport express coach service called 'Flybussekspressen F3' (direction Bekkestua/Røa) which runs close to the hotel (5-min walk from the bus stop). Coaches run every 20 min on weekdays. After about 35 min you get off at the stop Risløkkalléen and cross the motorway by the footbridge. Crossing the bridge you will see the hotel. Make sure to get on the right coach. There is also another airport express coach, called 'SAS Flybussen', but this will take you to the city centre.
In the case of late night arrival, it is possible to take the airport express train to Oslo S (central station) and then a taxi to the hotel (about 45 min overall).
The Conference will take place at OSLO QUALITY HOTEL 33 (close to public transport and The Munch Museum).
