Highlight Quotes: Although Europe remains extremely attractive overall, the
landscape is rather mixed in terms of hotel arrivals across the different regions.

In 2016, the top three markets in hotel arrivals – Germany, France, and Spain – accounted for 346m visitors or close to half of total hotel arrivals amongst the analysed markets, whilst
a number of markets welcomed less than 10m visitors. Albeit not significant in absolute terms, some of these smaller markets, such as Iceland, Poland and Portugal, have experienced very strong hotel arrivals growth in the past 10 years.
