Crisis? What Crisis?

Today and yesterday, I tried to book a hotel for the upcoming long week-end somewhere in rural Austria. After contacting many different hotels and checking various internet reservation platforms, I have decided to give up: All the reasonably nice places are fully booked. Only chance would be to pay more than 100 € per night for mediocre establishments in second-rate locations, which doesn't sound particularly appealing. No crisis in the Austrian hospitality business, it seems.


  1. This can be explained with the fact that people do not fly to exotic places as much as they used to do in the past.
    They may prefer to have a short stay nearby, rather than a long stay in a cheap destination oversee.

  2. Try Slovenia. Very good value for money.


  3. Thanks for the suggestion. But it comes a bit too late, and Slovenia is probably too far for a mere three days anyway.
