Hotel establishments recorded 1.6 million guests and 4.1 million overnight stays in April 2016, the equivalent to yearon-year increases 1 of 7.7% and 6.2%. These results stood quite below those of March (+19.4% and +21.1%) partly as a consequence of the celebration of Easter having occurred in April 2015. Both the internal and the external markets recorded more moderated growths (+6.8% and +5.9%) in relation to those recorded in March (+18.1% and +22.4%). The average stay declined (-1.4%; 2.63 nights) and the net bed occupancy rate increased slightly (+1.7 p.p.; 44.9%). Revenue also grew less (+11.8% in total revenue and +11.9% in revenue from accommodation) compared with +23.3% and +26.8% in March.
