    Hi Alex,

    Just as last year, following that link shows there are NO ROOMS available for either the Thursday or Saturday nights = totally useless!
    Is this a mistake?
    (I think I recall someone saying it was an error last year)

    See you in London! (Even if I have to bring a tent! :p)

    I think I took the last room on the 7th.... sorry KK. You can get on a waiting list, though -- I am on a waiting list for the night of the 9th. If nobody cancels their room before then, I suppose I will stay in the bar all night until I can re-check in the next day. ;D

    This morning, iGB Affiliate Hotels told me that someone cancelled their room on the 9th, so now I have a room for that night. I still might spend half the night in the hotel bar, though. ;D

    Sorry - Didn't get alert on the reply - The hotel is indeed sold out that night but people always cancel leading up to the event or change plans so I highly recommend you email the address at the bottom of the hotel booking site and they will add you to the list. Any problems just let me know
