Table description


This table presents an overview of the occupancy of accommodation and the number of guests and their overnight stays in the Netherlands in all hotels, motels, boarding houses, apartments with hotel services, youth accommodation and bed & breakfasts with at least 5 sleeping places, campsites with at least 4 pitches and holiday parks and group accommodation with at least 10 sleeping places. The figures can be broken down by type of accommodation.

Data available from: 2012

Status of the figures:
The figures for the reporting year 2022 are provisional figures. The figures until 2021 are final.

Changes as of 10 August 2022:
The figures for June 2022 have been added.

Changes as of 24 March 2022:
As of 24 March 2022, the municipality of Weesp will merge with the municipality of Amsterdam. This municipal redivision has been implemented in this table as at January 1, 2022.
Since January 2021, CBS has allowed companies to supply data in other ways, for example through cooperation with municipalities or other organisations with which agreements have been made.
This often involves processing figures that are collected by the municipality from visitor registers for overnight accommodation. The quality of the data is carefully monitored, but small trend breaks may occur in some regional breakdowns as a result of using these new sources.

When will new figures be published?
Figures of a new month become available within three months after the end of that month, these are provisional figures. The figures for the complete year are revised one month after publication of the December figures, these are revised provisional figures. Two months later definite figures will be published.

The (net) occupancy rate in March is 1 800/(31 x 150), expressed as a percentage this results to 39%.
