2015 has been the best year for the hotels in Bucharest compared to any of the past five, having had a growth of 8,6%, and reaching 68%.

Comparing the working days with the weekends, analysts from STR Global noticed a larger market for business and corporate clients so they concluded that leisure tourism should grow faster to become at least equal to business tourism.
