About the hotel

  • I put an option on some rooms at hotel Media Garden in Sophia Antipolis. INRIA has an agreement with this hotel (Of course we let you free to choose another place if you prefer). This hotel is 10 to 15 minutes away by car from INRIA (map).
  • If you stay at Media Garden hotel, the best way to come to INRIA is by taxi (it will take you around 10 to 15 minutes). A second possibility is to reserve through the receptionist of the hotel a shuttle called ENVIBUS. A third possibility is by bus (1 km walking to the bus station and then bus #1 or #22, but it will take you between 30 to 45 minutes)
  • Please find below a message from the hotel (you need to contact the hotel directly to make your reservation)
