Hotels; business related overnight stays, star rating


This table presents an overview of the number of business related 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. The figures can be broken down by star rating. Figures are available for The Netherlands as a whole, and for the city of Amsterdam.

The business related overnight stays are an estimate. Statistics Netherlands asks the accommodations how many percent, by estimate, of all overnight stays were business related. Because of this, figures are rounded to multiples of ten in this table.

The breakdown by star rating is based on the opinion of the accommodation itself. The star rating does not have to be officially registered. The breakdown contains all types of accommodation mentioned above, not just hotels. The '5 stars' category contains 5 star hotels, but also for instance 5 star bed&breakfasts.

Break in series:

Figures on guests and overnight stays per star rating for the years until 2015, that were published before, were based on offical registrations of the number of stars by the 'Bedrijfschap Horeca en Catering'. This official registration does no longer exist. Therefore, Statistics Netherlands started asking accommodations about their number of stars in its annual survey. For this reason, the figures in this table are not directly comparable with figures published about the years until 2015.

Data available from: 2017

Status of the figures:
The figures for the reporting year 2019 are revised provisional. The figures for the reporting year 2020 are provisional. The figures until 2018 are final.

Changes as of 24 April 2020:
The figures for February 2020 have been added.

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.
