HOTELIERS are in uproar over a ‘discriminatory’ draft bill that aims to regulate hotels and B&Bs in Andalucia for the first time.
Under the new regulations, a property will need to have a tourist licence if it puts up guests for more than 30 days in a year.
Legitimate B&B and hotel owners insist this is far too lapse and should be for anyone who rents for five days and over during the whole year.
Otherwise, they claim, ‘registered’ businesses are at an unfair advantage to people who rent rooms and homes ‘on the side’.
The five days rule demanded by Andalucia’s Hotels and Apartments Federation (FAHAT) is currently in place in Madrid and Barcelona.
