Hotel tax added for next year

Just received an email from Thomas cook telling me the Greek government will add a hotel tax next year. .50 c per night per person for 1 star hotel, 1.50 for 2-3 star hotel and 4 for 4 star hotel. To help with Greek monetary issues. Not a massive deal.

Some errors in my post. 3 euros per day for 4 star and 4 for 5. All categories of apartments (1-4) are 0.5 cents per day so 7 euros per person for a fortnight so nothing.

No, an apartment will cost you 7€ for a two week holiday. The star rating applies to hotels.

The prices have gone up with a bang for next season, some have doubled and one that I booked this year has trebled in price. I've been looking on the various hotel booking sites that we normally use and the prices are ridicules. Can't see the new hotel tax making the prices so high. Fingers crossed they see sense and drop the high prices soon.

Michael p, I have seen the email & read the details in the Greek news, the 50 cents a day on apartments is not in addition to anything, that is the cost alone.

Barnstyke, if you look at prices in sterling, yes, they do show a big increase, some of that due to the appalling rate. I am a Brit too & view places in both sterling & euro before deciding which to book & the rates themselves have not increased much, or not at all in euros on some properties, but of course it will show more expensive when translated into sterling.

Why would the apartment rate be added to what has been stated as the hotel rates? Read it again. I agree it is badly worded, it should say that apartments will be charged at 0.5€ a day & miss out the word also.

So a 5 star hotel room pays €4 per day and a 5 star apartment pays only 0.5€ or 7€ for 14 days? Sorry but I think that is a wrong interpretation of the Email.
