On some days in June, Metropolitan hotels in Norway had a 70-80 percent occupancy rate. The industry as a whole is on the right track, though it is far from normal.
– “The metropolitan hotels are on the right track. The occupancy climbs,” says hotel adviser Peter Wiederstrøm (52) of Wiederstrøm Hotel Consulting to Dagens Næringsliv.
From 1 to 25 June, hotels in Stavanger had an average occupancy of 29 percent, in Trondheim 28 percent and Bergen 24 percent. The worst situation is in Oslo, with an average occupancy of 18 per cent. But on some days of the month, some of the major cities had 70 to 80 percent occupancy, something Wiederstrøm had not expected before the joint holidays.
In April and May, Oslo had on average 6 and 9 percent occupancy at hotels.
