According to the Poland’s Hotel Association (IGHP), more than half of Poland’s hotels don’t expect to be in the black until 2022. In July, 70 percent of them reported no more than 40 percent in bookings.
According to a survey conducted by IGHP, 93 percent of hotels have resumed bookings. There has been an upturn in demand since May but demand still remains low. The research shows that in the first week of the summer holidays starting in July, demand rose but half of hotels are still not more than 30 percent full.
Secretary General of IGHP Marcin Mączyński told the Polish Press Agency (PAP) that most hotels have reduced their prices in response to the ongoing crisis.
“In June, 60 percent of entities cut their charges, with 40 percent noting falls of more than 10 percent compared with last year. Only 20 percent kept prices at last year’s levels,” he said.
