Information about hotels in Bonn can be found amongst others at the webpages of the Hotel Reservation Service, There you can find the hotels listed below too:

All three hotels are located in the centre of Bonn, in walking distance to the main station and therefore near to the subway too. You have to leave the subway after a 4-5 min. transfer at the station "Heussallee/Museumsmeile". From there, it is only a short walk (400 m) to the B-IT.

You will get these hotel prices, if you use the reference "CoreGRID" for your reservation. Of course, there are cheaper guest houses and hotels too.
