Since November the Catalan authorities will impose a tourist tax. Now each tourist who stopped in region hotel, except the child till 16 years, should pay in addition to a room rate in hotel the insignificant sum – from 0,5 to 2,5 euros per day (depends on hotel level).
For example, in Barcelona this tax will make in five-stars hotel of 2,5 euros in days, in the four-stars – 1,25 euros. It should be noted that four – and the three-stars hotels located not in the capital, will take from tourists a little less.
Experts are sure that the tax will not strike on a purse of tourists, and will increase expenses approximately by 10 euros for those who planned rest in Barcelona in double rooms of category 3-4*.
It is supposed that the money received thus, will be sent in the special center of development of tourism.
