Barcelona tourist tax irks hotel industry

Published on : Saturday, October 12, 2019

Barcelona tourist tax has invited the annoyance of the hotel industry. The main goal of the taxes was to raise funds to repair the damage caused by mass tourism to the environment and to the local cultural heritage.

 

Since the tax was introduced in the Balearics in 2016, international tourist arrivals have went up from 12.9 million at the close of that year to 13.8 million last year. The authorities of Catalonia have introduced a city tax on all hotels. The new tax requires a payment of 0.75 Euro per person per night for 3 star hotels, 1.25 Euro per person per night for 4 star hotels and 2.5 Euro per person per night for 5 star hotels.
