Note: All reservations should be made directly with the hotels above using the official websites or direct phone numbers and SWE codes. While other companies may contact you offering housing, they are not endorsed by or affiliated with WE12. Be careful when entering into a financial agreement with any unofficial companies, as their legitimacy and policies may be questionable. Booking directly with the hotel will enable you to receive the best rate and services, and WE12 will not be able to provide a resolution to issues related to such reservations.
