Accommodation for Euro 2012 will increase in price by 30 times

accomodation in the Ukraine

The accommodation in a Ukrainian hotel at the time of the Football Championship Euro-2012 will be from 3 to 30 times more expensive than usually. Earlier, media reported that there were no free places left in hotel. However, today in the capital there are more than 30 thousand rooms, and only 5 thousand are booked. Similar situation is observed in other host cities.

 Notwithstanding the foregoing information, hotels in the Ukraine still will raise the cost – it is confirmed by the manager of one of the capital’s hotels, «Of course, prices will increase. It’s a business. Not only that our hotel will raise the fare, but all the other hotels in the Ukraine. But I want to point out that this is a common practice throughout the world. At the Football World Cup in Germany in 2008 it was so, and during the 2012 Olympics in London hotels also raised prices.»

 For example, the price of apartments in Kharkov hotel is UAH 400 today, at the time of Euro 2012 the cost will be UAH 12,600. Double room in Kiev hotel Panorama for the time of Championship will cost 3700 UAH, although now it is offered for 800 UAH per day.

 Company TUI Travel has recognized that prices for accommodation are inflated in the Ukrainian hotels for the time of Euro 2012. Tour operator is seeking more affordable prices – all cities that host the championship were asked to justify the prices for hotel services.

According to Deputy Director of Coordination Bureau for the preparation and hosting  Euro 2012 in the Ukraine, Valery Zholdak said that Ukrainian five-star hotels ask for a room about 800 Euros, whereas in Europe the average prices of accommodation in hotels of this level start at 170 euros. The League believes that in Kiev prices per night in the hotel are extremely high, in Kharkiv and Donetsk – too high.

 Another accommodation option is private sector. Mini-hostels may be organized by private property owners.  The beds in hostels in the Ukraine ordinarily cost about 10 euros.  By the World Cup, they are likely to increase by 10 times.»

 The quantity and cost are not a sole problem. The quality should be also a dissatisfying factor to foreign guests.  The level of hotels of three to five stars should not be blamed for he level of service, but the guests of economy-class hotel can be disappointed. In particular, student hostels adapted to receive guests of Euro 2012 (they may take about 60 thousand fans) will have service problems, even with the linen.
