Demand outpaced supply in terms of growth in Poland, helping occupancy growth compensate for the decline in ADR. Warsaw recorded a 10.1% increase in RevPAR for the month, with occupancy up 8.0% and ADR up 1.9%. STR analysts note that the Polish capital’s performance was exceptionally high during the first six days of the month when it hosted the International Theatre Schools Festival.
- Occupancy: -0.6% to 80.7%
- ADR: +7.7% to EUR129.34
- RevPAR: +7.1% to EUR104.33
The country’s ADR level was significantly lifted by Madrid (+13.3%) and Barcelona(15.5%). STR analysts note that it is still too early to identify a potential impact on hotel performance from the 17 August terror attack in Barcelona.
- Occupancy: +64.9% to 69.2%
- ADR: +8.9% to TRY330.83
- RevPAR: +79.5% to TRY229.04
Turkey’s hotel performance showed dramatic year-over-year increases due to a comparison with the month of the coup d’état attempt in 2016. Istanbul saw a 132.5% increase in RevPAR for the month, with occupancy up 97.0% and ADR up 18.0%. STR analysts expect a similar growth pattern for August as performance declines continued through that month last year.
