We’ve heard you. We’ve asked NH Koningshof to open their hotel room sale later. NH Koningshof will open bookings for their rooms Tuesday May 2nd 20:00 CEST.
Unfortunately, NH Koningshof still only accepts credit cards as payment option. NH Koningshof explicitly communicated to us at Abunai that they will not accept iDeal, bank transfer, or any other payment option that is not credit card.
However, NH Koningshof also explicitly communicated to us at Abunai that they will accept prepaid credit cards and virtual credit cards. They also explicitly communicated that a credit card on a different name can be used in your reservation. Meaning you can use your parent’s credit card or your friend’s credit card to purchase your hotel room. NH Koningshof is giving Abunai guests more time to acquire an alternative credit card method such as a prepaid credit card or a virtual credit card.
We will follow up with an article on everything you need to know regarding and getting prepaid credit cards and virtual credit cards, to help you as best as we can. This is the first year NH Koningshof only accepts credit card as a payment option and we from Abunai! will try to help you adapt to this change.
The Abunai! ticket sale will not be postponed. Ticket sale for Abunai 2017 will still open Wednesday April 26th 20:00 CEST. For more information please refer to Abunaicon 2017 ticket sale: Everything You Need to Know.
Ladies and gentlemen, everything in between and beyond, the wait is over! On Wednesday April 26th 20:00 CEST the ticket sale for Abunai! 2017: History in the Making will start. Here’s everything you need to know to make sure you’ll be attending the Netherlands’ ‘gezelligste’ con.

A few weeks ago we posted a message informing you that we will no longer be offering sleeping accommodations in our online ticket booth. Following this decision we received
some questions about the details of these changes and what the new procedure will be like: how will you obtain a hotel room at NH Koningshof now?
We’ve spent the last few weeks finishing the details with NH Hoteles and have created a separate page on our website with additional information about the change, including
information on how to place a room reservation. You can find this information HERE.
Please note that our ticket sales or the hotel room sales have not started yet; we’re still making preparations for this, but will make an announcement as soon as a final
date is set.
Ever since Abunai! changed venues and moved to NH Koningshof we’ve offered accomodations as part of the deal. It made perfect sense too, the convention center hosted a hotel, so why not combine the two and offer accommodations along with your visitor ticket. Initially this only consisted of hotel rooms on the premesis, but later on this was expanded to other NH hotels and even to the neighbouring group accomodation, De Buitenjan.
However this year we’ll make some major changes in this setup, so please make sure to read the message below thoroughly.
Over the years there have been several issues with the hotel room sales; some caused by external factors, other by system problems or human error. More than once has this resulted in a negative experience for both you, the visitor, and us, as convention organisers. This has been a difficult challenge to us for years and we’ve discussed the issue at hand with various different parties and visitors as well and have come to a conclusion in this.
As of this year Abunai! will no longer offer sleeping accomodations for sale in our own online ticket booth. Instead the hotel rooms will be sold directly by the organisation best suited for the job: the hotel itself. We will provide a sign up link on our website which will allow you to place a reservation at NH Koningshof directly. Please be advised that there is no point in contacting the hotel before this link is available and official reservations open. Reservations received before this time will not be processed.
We will book a portion of the hotel before the hotel room sales open for our own crew and affiliated parties, however this is no different from previous years; these people need to be on site because they are needed to help keep the convention running, and they need to stay close by to do so effectively.
We will also no longer be making arrangements for the neighbouring group accomodation De Buitenjan. If you wish to place a reservation here, you will need to contact them
We know that this approach is a major change from previous years but at the same time we feel this is the best route to take. We are still making preparations for this step, so currently we can give no final date yet when both ticket registration and hotel room sales will open. As soon as we have an update on this, we will inform you through our website and social media.
If you have any questions on this, feel free to contact us and we’ll do our best to answer them.
Due to cancellations and double bookings we have a small amount of rooms available again at NH Koningshof. To make sure that everyone has an equal chance to get a hotel room, we will hold a lottery.
Before participating in the hotel room lottery, please make sure that:
– you have a weekend ticket registered for Abunai! 2015
– you are absolutely sure you want to book a room, rooms given out by the lottery cannot be canceled! If you get a room, the money needs to be transferred within 7 days after the confirmation email.
To have a chance to get a hotel room, send an email to email@example.com before Saturday July 25th, 23:59. Also include your visitor number and your preferred room type as well as a second option (in case we cannot match your first preference)! Available options include: Single Room, Single Superior Room, Twin Room, Twin Superior Room, Double Room.
Visitors with a room at NH Best or NH Geldrop can apply as well, but in case of an overwhelming amount of applications, visitors without a sleeping accommodation will receive preference.
Winners will be contacted in the week following the closing date. If you haven’t heard from us by then, you unfortunately did not receive a room.
