Link to the Guesthouse

Visitors not being reimbursed by the EMBL will have to pay their stay directly at the Guesthouse (in cash, by cheque on a French bank or by credit card).

We are not able to guarantee you accommodation on site at shorter notice. Should it not be possible to accommodate you in a single room in the Guesthouse, we need to know whether you would prefer to share a room at the Guesthouse, or have a single room in a hotel in central Grenoble.

Outside the Guesthouse reception opening hours (Monday to Friday 7:00–20:00, week-end and public holidays 7:00–12:00), the room keys are available at the site entrance, together with other useful documents and information.
