Wanting to enjoy the sea spray on the Emerald Coast, you may have hesitated between a room in a cheap hotel in Saint-Malo and an Airbnb offer? If the growing number of ads on the online rental site between individuals is proof of its success, the quality of the services offered by the hotels is still highly appreciated by tourists. The comfort of the 41 rooms offered by the Hôtel de la Cité, a cheap hotel in St-Malo, will undoubtedly charm you during your next excursion in the region.
Since 2010, the number of Airbnb offers on the Emerald Coast has risen sharply, reaching a volume of 1,000 accommodations in the summer of 2015, half of which were located in Saint-Malo and Dinard. With a tradition of furnished rentals, Saint-Malo, a port city, has naturally followed the trend. If the capacity of Airbnb offers is far from absorbing the average daily attendance of the Emerald Coast, estimated at 22,550 people, the rental site is nevertheless a competitor for hoteliers.
Accused of unfair competition by hoteliers, the website Airbnb has announced the collection of the tourist tax directly on its online booking platform from 1 August 2016. All holidaymakers must pay a tourist tax when they rent a room or a flat. Although this tax is included in the price of a hotel room reservation, private individuals are not always aware of this tax, which results in a loss of revenue for the municipality.
If you are looking for a fully-equipped, spacious and modern room with a sea view, do not hesitate to visit the Hotel de la Cité, a low-cost hotel in St-Malo offering a quality service. The hotel team will give you a warm welcome and will meet your expectations to make your stay as pleasant as possible.
