TRI HotStats: monthly European hotel figures – Industry data

TRI HotStats: monthly European hotel figures – Industry data

France and Budapest were the only cities where hotels were able to increase profitability in March 2008 of the 10 European cities listed in the monthly Europe HotStats survey from TRI Hospitality.

Along with Prague, they were the only cities to increase occupancy during the month.

However, the figures were distorted because Easter fell in March this year, compared to April in 2007.

The biggest drops in income before fixed charges per available room (IBFCpar) were seen in Munich (down by 47.4%), Prague (down by 35.8%), Vienna and Warsaw (both down by 23.2%) and Berlin (down by 20.5%).

Budapest achieved the biggest rise in IBFCpar, which grew by 14.4% to €28.58, but was the second least profitable city in the survey after Munich.

Despite a 12.3% fall in IBFCpar, London's achieved average of €94.90 made it the most profitable hotel city of the month, followed by Paris, Amsterdam and Berlin.

The figures are compiled each month by Tri Hospitality Consulting.
