National coverage

Dit is een dataset die landelijk dekkend is. De data heeft betrekking op heel Nederland.


This table presents an overview of of the capacity (type of accommodation, rooms, beds) in the Netherlands in all hotels, motels, boarding houses, apartments with hotel services, youth accommodation and bed & breakfasts with at least 5 sleeping places. The figures can be broken down by star rating. Figures are available for The Netherlands as a whole, and for the city of Amsterdam.

The breakdown by star rating is based on the opinion of the accommodation itself. The star rating does not have to be officially registered. The breakdown contains all types of accommodation mentioned above, not just hotels. The '5 stars' category contains 5 star hotels, but also for instance 5 star bed&breakfasts.

Break in series: Figures on guests and overnight stays per star rating for the years until 2015, that were published before, were based on offical registrations of the number of stars by the 'Bedrijfschap Horeca en Catering'. This official registration does no longer exist. Therefore, Statistics Netherlands started asking accommodations about their number of stars in its annual survey. For this reason, the figures in this table are not directly comparable with figures published about the years until 2015.

Data available from: 2017

Status of the figures: The figures for the year 2023 are provisional. All other figures are final.

Changes as of 14 November 2023: Despite the care with which the figures and previous publications have been compiled about all overnight accommodation establishments in the Netherlands, it has been noticed that the published figures for the reporting periods after March 2022 are incorrect due to a technical error. Statistics Netherlands is investigating the influence of this technical error on the results of this statistic and other statistics that use this statistic.

Based on this research, Statistics Netherlands will publish improved figures for the statistics on all overnight accommodation establishments in the Netherlands on December 11. This concerns the months April 2022 to October 2023 and the associated quarters. This means that the publication already planned for November 14 (covering the reporting month of September) will be postponed for a few weeks.

Changes as of 24 March 2022: As of 24 March 2022, the municipality of Weesp will merge with the municipality of Amsterdam. This municipal redivision has been implemented in this table as at January 1, 2022. Since January 2021, CBS has allowed companies to supply data in other ways, for example through cooperation with municipalities or other organisations with which agreements have been made. This often involves processing figures that are collected by the municipality from visitor registers for overnight accommodation. The quality of the data is carefully monitored, but small trend breaks may occur in some regional breakdowns as a result of using these new sources.

When will new figures be published? Figures of a new month become available within three months after the end of that month, these are provisional figures. The figures for the complete year are revised one month after publication of the December figures, these are revised provisional figures. Two months later definite figures will be published.
