According to the STR analytic company, with one of the world’s most improved economies in 2017 and rising 13 spots in the World Economic Forum’s global ranking, Azerbaijan's capital saw massive improvements in hotel performance in the first quarter of the year.
Occupancy increased by +74.9 percent to 49.5 percent as RevPAR increased by +119.5 percent to AZN84.85 since Q1 2016. While ADR increased by +25.5 percent to AZN171.46 percent, exchange rate fluctuations made the destination cheaper for many international visitors. STR analysts note the performance growth is particularly impressive considering the market experienced significant supply growth of 18.1 percent in 2015 and 6.8 percent in 2016.
