Due to the intensification of inbound tourism, the occupancy rate of hotels in Kiev in June 2021 increased to 66%, which is 23% higher than in May, Head of the Hotel Matrix project Yelyzaveta Rudeleva has told Interfax-Ukraine.
“We see positive trends in all indicators in all major cities of Ukraine,” she added.
According to Rudeleva, Odesa is in second place in terms of hotel occupancy: an increase from 53% in May to 63% in June. This is followed by Lviv from 41% in May to 60% in June, Dnipro from 45% in May to 58% in June, and Kharkiv from 45% in May to 50% in June.
As she said, usually hotels, anticipating the high demand for the coming period, increase the price. Price and Average Daily Room Rate (ADR) certainly have different meanings, therefore, an increase in price, accordingly, affects an increase in ADR.
Compared to May, ADR indicators of all Ukrainian cities grew from 2.4% to 18.4%. ADR of Dnipro increased to UAH 3782 from UAH 3289 in May, Lviv – to UAH 2,439 from UAH 2,060, Odesa – to UAH 2,284 from UAH 2,067, Kiev – to UAH 2,031 from UAH 1,836 in May.
RevPar (Revenue Per Available Room per day) almost doubled in Lviv – from UAH 850 in May to UAH 1,557 in June. A strong breakthrough in hotels in Odesa – from UAH 1,089 in May to UAH 1,476 in June and Kyiv – from UAH 780 in May to UAH 1,345 in June. In Dnipro, this figure rose to UAH 2,174 from UAH 1,550 in May, in Kharkiv to UAH 1,058 in June from UAH 938 in May.
Statistical data for Dnipro is presented by the hotel market of four-star and five-star hotels, in Kharkiv – two-star, four-star and five-star hotels. The statistics of Kiev, Odesa and Lviv are presented by three-star, four-star and five-star hotels.
