Last year, more people have visited the city of Rotterdam than the year before. The number of hotel guests increased, in 2012, with 78,000 to 740,000. Also the number of overnight stays increased in 2012 with 2%.
This is shown by preliminary figures from the Central Bureau of Statistics (CBS), reported Rotterdam Marketing on Tuesday.
“It is good that these figures show a rise again, however, the room rates are still under pressure. This results in a 20 percent lower income, compared to the top year 2008,” says Jan Rutgers, chairman of the Rotterdam Hotel Combination.
