Porto is very well supplied with wide range of accommodation options. We have deals with 7 different hotels, however, at this point, the best deals available can be made are through booking.com or the hotel´s own sites.
There are few hotels close to the venue (Faculdade de Psicologia e de Ciências da Educação da Universidade do Porto). The closest is the IBIS São João Porto. If booked through the hotel website, up to a month before the arrival, a double room would cost 35€ per night. Breakfast is not included and costs 6€ per person.
We would recommend staying in Downtown Porto, as it is the center of Porto, and as such a much more lively location with open restaurants, cafés, theatres and cinemas and only an 8 minute subway travel away from the venue using the yellow line (São Bento, Aliados or Trindade station).
We have deals with a big range of hotels:
In the 2 stars range he have deals with Grand Hotel de Paris, which offers a 5% discount over counter prices to conference.
B&B a new hotel hosted in beautiful buildings and the B&B (46€/double room with no breakfast included).
Other Hotels of this range in this area include the Vera Cruz Hotel and Hotel Paulista. In the 3 stars hotel range we recommend are Quality Inn Batalha and Grande Hotel do Porto.

In that range we would also recommend Porto Trindade Hotel and Hotel Mercure Porto Hotel. Also there is Pestana Porto Hotel which is located down by the river.
For 5 star accommodations there are 2 hotels: Infante Sagres and InterContinental Hotel Palácio das Cardosas .
In downtown there is also budget (yes, it gets even cheaper) accommodation such as guest houses (Nasoni Guest House and Oporto House), pensions (Pensão Cristal).
These accommodations are located in the middle of Porto´s most vibrant nightlife spot with bars opened up to late hours.
