Angry response of hoteliers: Decide if they want to accept customers only for sleep

Our restaurants can not be closed while the hotels are open, the hoteliers emphasize, calling on the government to decide if they want to welcome customers “only for sleep”.

Today, the Ministry of Development announced that the hotel restaurants will not be open on Christmas Eve and New Year. Those staying in hotels will only be allowed room service.

In a statement, the Panhellenic Federation of Hoteliers emphasizes that the hotels adhere to the very strict health protocols from the beginning of the pandemic “and proved to be one of the safest places in health”.

POX emphasizes that the restaurants of the hotels “operate legally only for the service of the residents in them and with specific strict conditions and rules, which they must strictly observe and abide by”.

The restaurants “cannot be closed as long as our hotels remain open and in operation, as our customers who stay in them must be served”, POX emphasizes and calls on the competent authorities:

To finally decide if they want to accept customers “only for sleep”, because we have lost him all the last time! However, hotels that will not be allowed to receive customers, can not be left open, not even for a joke!

The announcement of POX in detail:

“POX’s response to complaints

Our companies, from the beginning of the pandemic, have adhered to and continue to adhere to the very strict health protocols that have been provided for them and have proven to be one of the healthiest places.

The reward – “punishment” for our above effort was, in the middle of a lockdown, to keep our hotels open – essentially closed, with no revenue and in addition to the additional support measures provided for closed businesses.

Now we have reached the point of being blamed because our businesses may have customers – residents, because they have not stopped operating on their own !!

We therefore inform all our “public accusers” that the hotel restaurants operate legally ONLY to serve the guests in them and with specific strict terms and rules, which they must strictly observe and abide by. Having managed to do it during the summer months when they had some, albeit small, occupancy rates, of course they can do it now that it is almost empty.

And our restaurants can not be closed as long as our hotels remain open and operational, as our customers who stay in them, must be served.

Finally, we call on the competent authorities to finally decide whether they want to accept customers “only for sleep”, because we have lost him all the last time! However, hotels that will not be allowed to receive customers, can not be left open, not even for a joke!
