A bed can be a lifesaver for hoteliers when it comes to staying at the city’s main hotels.
But in the past, there was a big cost to the hotelier.
In a recent report, Bleacherreport.com wrote about how hotels were losing money due to poor demand.
That has left many hoteliers feeling like the cost of staying at their hotels is really just the hotel’s overhead.
So, it was not a surprise when Hotel Supply outlets in Johannesburg started to pop up in the cities central suburbs.
Now, with the arrival of the new Hotel Supply stores, it’s not just hoteliers that are getting to enjoy cheaper accommodation.
“The biggest thing we’ve heard from people is that they are getting better accommodation, they are finding more comfortable rooms, more beds,” Hotel Supply director Adam Wessel said.
“It’s a really good start.”
Hotel Supply outlets can be found at all major hotels and have become a popular way to find affordable accommodation.
The store chain has even partnered with the National Hospitality Association, which provides accommodation for visitors.
“If you are a visitor to the city, they will take your booking into consideration.
If you are someone who is visiting the city for a job, we will do a room search to see what you need,” Wessel told ABC News.
“The hotels are just the tip of the iceberg.”
