Amsterdam Becomes the Most Popular European Destination This Summer

News Hotels in Amsterdam have a hot season now as the city has become the most popular European destination for this summer. The occupancy of Amsterdam hotels only proves this fact – while the average occupancy for this month estimates 54.8%, the occupancy in the first weekend of August (August 1 and 2) was 71.3 and 74.8 per cent respectively.

The data from TravelClick proves that even such popular European destinations as London and Paris cannot compete with the Dutch capital. Summer is a traditional time for increased bookings in the capital of the UK. On average, half of hotels in London are booked for the period (50.6%), but this year bookings are 5.8% higher for the same dates. Hotels in the capital are particularly booked on Saturdays (current bookings for August 9 are 65.5%, 64% for August 16, and 62.5% for August 23). Another popular city, Paris, keeps attracting visitors even in summer. With the average occupancy for August being 50.6%, this year’s bookings are higher – almost 55%. First weekend of August was even more successful – bookings in Parisian hotels estimated 66.3% and 64.9% for August 1 and 2. That’s a vast increase compared to 2013.

Hot summer is one of reasons why holidaymakers choose Barcelona. More than one third of hotels in the city are filled in August in general (the average occupancy here estimates 37.5%), while the committed occupancy for the first weekend of August is 56.5% and 58.1% respectively. Hotels in Prague also post the growth of occupancy that estimated 21.9 and 22.2 per cent for August 1 and 2 compared to the same period of 2013.
