Hotel classification

Absolutely all hotels and hotels can be attributed to a certain category, this is a general classification, which includes large hotels in Tyumen and small hotels in Europe. In order to accurately determine the place of the hotel in the classification, it is necessary to determine a number of parameters: what services the hotel provides, who owns it, what is its attractiveness for tourists, are there any additional services.

However, even such a classification will not be truly uniform. As a rule, the requirements developed by the World Tourism Organization are used when evaluating a hotel. The International Organization for Standardization has contributed to this work. However, these requirements are not mandatory, but only recommendatory in nature. In some countries, this classification is not used at all, for example, hotels in the Czech Republic and Austria do not differ in terms of the number of stars.

In our country, this system officially began to work recently - from the summer months of 2010. The main postulates of these requirements are as follows:

Hotels with one star are the cheapest, with minimal comfort. There is a minimum of furniture in the rooms, the rooms themselves are furnished in the same way. There are no additional services, bed linen is provided once a week, sometimes there is no cleaning.
Hotels with two stars assume that the room has not only the usual furniture, but also a TV. Each room has a separate toilet and shower, the rooms may vary in comfort. In such hotels, rooms are cleaned every day, additional services or not, or there are very few of them..
Hotel category «three stars» - This is a standard hotel with comfortable rooms, which have a TV, Internet access, and a refrigerator. Daily cleaning, there are additional services, most often there is a swimming pool and a gym.

Four-star hotels are already comfortable, more expensive hotel establishments. The rooms must have a TV, refrigerator, mini-bar. In such hotels there are many additional services, there is a swimming pool, solarium, massage services, visits to the gym, etc..
If the hotel has five stars, then it is considered a high comfort hotel. All the necessary services are provided here, as well as many additional ones. Many services are considered exclusive, for example some hotels have their own golf course. Such a hotel must meet the requirements of a person who has increased requirements for comfort..

Of course, hotels «stellar» the categories do not cover all establishments that provide such services. So, if you need Vladivostok hotels, but you are on a limited budget, then you can find a small boarding house, half board or an inn. There are such establishments that are a small private mansion, several rooms of which are rented by the owners. Guests are offered accommodation and meals for a small fee. Also, motels are not included in the star classification - small hotels in which there are practically no additional services.
