HOTEL prices have soared in Spain’s southern Andalusia region, with the highest rises in the whole of Spain to be found in Marbella and Granada.
According to the latest report from hotel data company STR and real estate services firm Cushman & Wakefield on the Spanish hotel sector, the average price for a nightly stay in Marbella is €298.
The city of Granada, meanwhile, has also seen hotel prices jump, by as much as 30% per room.
These increases are in line with the rest of the country, according to the report, which states that the Spanish market is undergoing a period of ‘full recovery of hotel and tourism activity’ in the wake of the coronavirus pandemic, which took hold in early 2020 and caused severe disruption to the sector for the following years.
According to the report, the average price for a nightly stay in Spanish hotels is currently €145, which is a rise of 7% on the previous year and a 20% increase on the same figure in 2019, the last full year before the Covid-19 health crisis began.
