Hotels in Andalusia will continue the practice of closing for the winter season. And in 2010-2011 the the number of hotels that choose to close, will be even bigger than last year. Andalusian hoteliers note that despite the positive performance of the last summer, the effects of a recession are still strongly felt. It is most vividly evident in the offseason, when the tourist flow is greatly reduced.

In total 40% of the hotels will be closed for winter in Andalusia. According to the representatives of the hotel sector of the region, this figure can be called critical.
