Mountain hotels and guesthouses – the new tourism opportunities brought to light by the pandemic

Brief guide to profitable investments

A high-level investment, overlooking infinite nature sights, the promise of health breathed by the mountain air, the sunset, the sunrise… Many investors would surely find these to be some of the aspects which may lead to an investment in a tourism business. However, the only reasons leading towards the decision to invest in the hospitality sector should be pragmatic judgments, based on figures, analyses, and a low investment risk rate – namely the only arguments which build profitable businesses.

What are the opportunities of the moment?

Having acknowledged the potential provided by tourism and the current state of the market, we have identified a series of market opportunities. Among these is a 21-room hotel, fully-renovated, furnished and equipped, located in Bușteni resort. The hotel lies in the Poiana Țapului neighbourhood, and the price is EUR 1,249,996. The advantage provided by the Valea Prahovei investment is the location’s high potential. The hotel provides access to all mountain activities (skiing – Calinderu ski trail, cableway to Babele, the Sphinx, and the Caraiman Cross, hiking, relaxation etc.) and tourist sites (Cantacuzino Castle, Peleș Castle, as well as the George Enescu Memorial House). It also has a restaurant with a 50-person capacity and its own parking lot, in the yard, for 12 cars, as well as a parking area in front of the hotel, for another 15 cars.
