He said that the hotel industry has been relieved by the G20 summit and tourist traffic in metros. Because of the current supply and demand situation, room rents are sometimes slightly higher than pre-pandemic levels, Bezbaroh said. “I think there’s a lot of demand right now, not only from the G20, but also from tourists and people coming to the cities to see it all,” Bezbaroh said.
Due to demand, the rent increased.

He was asked what information HAI had received from its members on room demand and rental rates for the G20 summit.

In fact, rents sometimes go up during pandemics.” are higher than the previous levels, but this is based on supply and demand.
