In almost all major cities in Norway, more than nine out of ten hotel rooms were empty in April.
April was the worst month of all time for city hotels, writes Dagens Næringsliv. The newspaper reports figures from Benchmarking Alliance showing that the number of rooms sold was 85-95 per cent lower in April this year than in the same month last year.
Hamar was at the bottom measured in occupancy, i.e. the proportion of available hotel rooms that were rented out each night. 97 per cent of rooms were empty in April.
The situation was not much better in Oslo, where 94 per cent of the hotel rooms were empty.
