Another 65 hotels planned for Portugal by 2019

With Lisbon and the north now registering the same level of tourism as the Algarve, the association of Portuguese hotels (AHP) has announced that 65 new hotels are on track for 2019: 23 in the capital’s metropolitan area, and 17 in the north. The majority will be four/ five-star, say reports, suggesting that AHP believes receipts from tourism this year will set a new record of 17 billion euros.
