During the world specialized exhibition Astana EXPO 2017 prices for hotel services in the capital of Kazakhstan will not increase. “Astana Convention Bureau” LLP have concluded relevant memorandums with representatives of the hotel business. This was reported by the deputy director of the company Askar Adambekov, informed in the press service of akim of Astana.
"We signed memorandums with hotels so that they won’t raise the cost of accommodation during EXPO.The main fuss is related to the hotel chains, that is, brand hotels, with a world name: 4 and 5 stars, but the prices have jumped there accordingly. The metropolitan hotels both hold prices, and adhere to this pricing policy,” Adambekov said.
According to the representative of "Astana Convention Bureau", hotel chains, as accommodation facilities, are not subject to pricing regulation, since each of them has its own pricing policy, which they adhere to.
"There is a hotel management program. The greater the workload, the higher the price. If the workload is small, the hotel room is cheap, if it’s big then the hotel room, accordingly, is very expensive. Pricing is influenced by analytical studies directly at the central offices of these hotels. After, they approve a certain tariff, based on market conditions,” the top manager explained.
As Adambekov noted, the chain hotels have raised the prices for their services by an average of 20% for EXPO. Prices in the hotels of Astana, he is sure, will remain at the same level.
"We monitor prices on a daily basis.The increase in prices for chain hotels is observed by no more than 20% .Kazakhstan hotels keep the prices as they did before.They do not use hotel management programs, in principle.Many hotels are based on approved tariffs and operate on them,” Adambekov explained.
It should be noted that the price policy of Astana hotels on the threshold of the world specialized exhibition EXPO 2017 has been severely criticized by officials from the Ministry of Culture and Sports of the Republic of Kazakhstan. The remarks were made during the meeting on standardization of tourism and hospitality industry.
Let us remind that a special website Torlet.com has been launched in Kazakhstan within the framework of the world specialized exhibition EXPO 2017, synchronized with such well-known world systems as Booking.com and Airbnb that minimizes the risks for tourists to stumble across fake apartment rental ads.
