Study of the Utilisation of Commercial Accommodations with Special Regard to Northern Hungary and Northern Great Plain


  • Zsolt Péter

    () (University of Miskolc)


Increasing the accommodation supply is a top priority of tourism development at present. Tourism in Hungary has shown significant results since the 90s. Apart from several years' slight declines, the number of guest nights grew steadily; however, the increase of bed places came to a halt in 2004, and the data of the past several years have indicated a clear decrease. The differentiated appearance - also spatially - of the two phenomena raises the necessity of studying the utilisation of accommodations. This study examines the efficiency of operation of the various accommodation types in 2000 and 2008 using shift-share analysis.
