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 on short 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; weekend and public holidays, 7:00–12:00), the room keys are available at the site entrance, together with other useful documents and information.

Breakfast is served in the Guesthouse. Price: 1,84€.

Other meals are served in the joint ILL/EMBL/ESRF canteen on site. To eat there, you will need a canteen card which you request in advance. You can charge the card at the canteen/cash desk at the entrance to the Common Building before your first meal.
