What Will Happen to Tourist Apartments After the Pandemic?
We explore how to revive the tourist sector after Covid-19.
The coronavirus health crisis has taken its toll on the hotel and tourist apartment sector. The closure of tourist accommodation due to the virus has added up to millions of euros of loses.
Everything points to the fact that smaller hotels with fewer communal, multipurpose areas will be the ones to reopen more easily. It is likely to be the same for tourist apartments which may be preferred by many families to avoid contact with other travellers.
However, all safety and hygiene measures will have to be reinforced, ensuring the health of our guests. This will be easier to implement in tourist apartments than in hotels.
For the recovery of the tourist accommodation sector, we must have the trust of local tourists, as well as foreign ones.
The companies in this industry have lost the Easter holiday period and we are starting to prepare ourselves for an even more uncertain summer where the rules will be constantly changing for everyone.
New Measures, Tourist Adaptation
To re-activate our sector, safety and hygiene measure must be prioritised. It will be necessary to provide guests with additional information about disinfection protocols, changes the cleaning staff have made and other additional services, such as offering them gloves, masks and disinfectant gels as a courtesy.
Without doubt, the 2020 holiday period will be different from what we are accustomed to for rental companies and tourists alike.
We know that the economy of the country is affected by tourism, therefore the interest in reactivating and achieving stability in this sector is important for everyone.
Today we speak of the ‘new normal’ and in time we will adapt to arrive at ‘our normal’. The usual one, with tapas, glasses of cava with friends, good rice on any given Sunday.
At ChicRoom Barcelona, we are working to continue to provide the best service. Year after year, guests continue to choose us and although this summer will be different, our high standards will continue to be the same.
