Staying at NH Hotel Eindhoven “Koningshof”
NH Eindhoven Conference Centre Koningshof is situated in a former convent just outside the cities outskirts. With surrounding forest area, and many quite spots in- and outside the buildings NH Koningshof you are certain of a perfect SMC experience.
A nearby bus stop, opposite of the hotel entrance, makes it easy to reach from Eindhoven Central station with public transport. It´s only 20 minutes by bus to the centre of Eindhoven.
NH Eindhoven Conference Centre Koningshof offers great sports facilities, including a gym, an indoor sports court, squash courts, and also a solarium and sauna, and bike-rental
The convention centre offers four main event halls and 80 conference rooms with 2.200 parking spaces.
The hotel has 497 rooms, split into 112 standard single rooms, 237 standard double rooms, 15 superior single rooms, 98 superior double rooms, and
35 superior XL rooms. There are several bars and restaurants to enjoy good drinks and food and the reception desk is staffed 24/7.
NH Koningshof Parking
NH Koningshof has a parking lot with 2000 parking spaces for which they charge a parking fee.
Parking passes can be purchased at the hotel’s ticketing machines at the hotel lobby or at the main show entrance, AT ANY TIME (!) and also at hotel reception desk (open 24/7).
The first three hours are free of charge. We strongly advise NOT to use the Dutch app “Stadsparkeren”, to park on the NH premises, as this will be much more expensive than the price of an NH parking pass.
The prices are as follows:
|First three hours||€0|
|Per 24-hour period||€5|
|Weekend ticket, per 72-hour period (if bought from reception desk)||€10|
If you have a day or weekend parking pass you can exit and return to the parking lot with no restrictions.

NH Koningshof has assembled a dedicated team to deal with the reservations forms in order of receipt.
Indeed, it is a manual job and it may require a two working days to reply to you.
In case you need more info or when your patience runs out: please contact the NH Eindhoven Conference Centre Koningshof only, and not any other NH hotel, the NH Netherlands head office or any other NH office in the world. Contrary to what you might believe, SMC is not the biggest thing since sliced bread to them. Just saying…..
Please do not contact the SMC organisers for hotelroom reservations. WE RUN THE SHOW, NOT THE HOTEL!
What to do when the hotel of the NH Conference centre is fully booked !
We suggest to do the following:
Obviously there are many more hotels and other places to stay in and around Eindhoven. We have listed them in a PDF ” alternative places to stay” . We have merely looked at hotels located along the motorways leading to NH Eindhoven. All of the listed hotels, B&B’s and campings (with rental chalets) are situated at or near to the A67 leading from Venlo to Antwerp or at the A2 leading from Amsterdam to Maastricht.
Besides the hotels on this list, there are many hotels in the city of Eindhoven itself , which may be a viable consideration if you have to come to the venue by public transport (a bus stops in front of the venue)
In case you book at alternative locations without the obligation to pay in advance, we suggest that you try to use the above link from time to time, because people cancel their rooms sometimes, for whatever reason. And in case there are vacant rooms you will be able to book a room at the NH Eindhoven Conference Koningshof and then cancel the room you have booked elsewehere. So coming back here every now and them may pay off.
Please click on the icon on the left for the list of alternative accommodations in PDF format. The links to the websites on this PDF are interactive , so just click on them to be guided further.
