KYIV, Aug 8 – The occupancy of hotels in Kyiv in January-June 2019 decreased by one percentage point (p.p.) compared to the same period a year earlier and amounted to 48%, the press service of Jones Lang LaSalle consulting company in Ukraine (JLL) has reported.
"The first half of this year was marked for the hotel market of the Ukrainian capital by a fall in average operating indicators both in U.S. dollars and hryvnias. Against the backdrop of the very successful first half of 2018, when the Champions League final was held in Kyiv and both occupancy and average tariffs rose, the results this year leave much to be desired. In particular, for the first time since 2014, there was a drop in occupancy between January and June," Tetiana Veller, the head of the hotel business department at JLL, said.
