THE BUILDINGS OF SAN SEBASTIAN WON'T BE DESTINATED TO HOTELS ANY MORE
Never is too late... The council of San Sebastian has decided, at least, that form february the buildings with homes won't be for hotels any more.
Untill now, and during years, the council has regulated, with controversy, the touristic apartments of San Sebastian with the argument that the access to a house wasn't sustainable. But this reason has not been valid for the hotels... It was worse to be one or two touristic apartments in the building that have all occupated by a hotel.
A solution to not disturb to the neighbords and to avoid to the buildings be transformed for the hotels. But, of the more than 18 hotel business that are built or are building now, don't say anything. In a city, that have to remember have 200.000 population and had a generous hotels offer.
They have allow to be building more and more hitels in the city, but the touristic apartments have divided to the half. These apartments, where for the council, problematic for the npighbords and for them this was the cause of the home problem in San Sebastian. But not the new hotels...
The big hotel networks have arrived or will do soon and don't have any problem to disturb to the neighbords with their works and noise.
And to add more things, the city major has said that there will not be more hotels in the olp part, but they have allowed to buil two new hotels.
As professionals of the management of the touristic apartments, have seen that the council has a unfair actitude with the touristic apartments. Is clear that is necessary a regulation and establish some connivance rules... but... wasn't necessary to do something with the hotels?. Also there are some unfair taxes to the hotels. For example, the tax for the waste is the same of a restaurant or bar. Why this? Is obvius that a touristic apartment waste the 60-65% of a normal house.
Also we have to say that the media hae not been totally factual with these problem...
Keeping calm with the breeze
