Now, hotels have had to lower prices compared with last year. All price lists are different, but the average price tag has fallen by a third. This is due to the fact that the majority of additional services are also prohibited by the sanitary norms. No pools or fitness centers, the Spa, bowling alley or even the beach. In fact, the client now only gets the opportunity to spend the night away from the city, breathe fresh air and eat. Although food is also a problem.

– it is Remarkable that we were allowed to feed guests at least on the terraces. But if the weather is bad – the meal moves into the room. Imagine a hotel of one hundred rooms: this is how much you need the waiters? The process of eating stretched for a couple of hours, – says Svetlana Shesternina.

hotels are Also additional costs associated with the sanitary norms. Need to purchase disposable tableware, containers, tape, gloves, masks, sanitizer. At low prices and minimum flow of these costs is a significant burden.

– Domestic tourism is not yet earned. Most of the guests we have – from the Nizhny Novgorod region. Even Muscovites is not enough. To compete with the Crimea and the Krasnodar region we can not, for objective reasons. Plus, in Moscow, the Moscow region and Saint-Petersburg filmed more restrictions than we have allowed fitness, for example. We will not see such a flow of guests as they, – said Svetlana.
