Figures not reported by the MTÜ show that there were 596,000 domestic tourists in May of last year, who spent a total of 1.2 million nights.
Due to the restrictions on international travel imposed during the epidemic, domestic guests represented 94% of all numbers last month, accounting for 82% of all guest nights.
About two-thirds, or 278,000 guest nights were realised after restrictions were eased from May 18, a clear sign of revival, the MTÜ underlined.
In Budapest hotels the number of guests was only 11,000, down by 97%. The number of guest nights plummeted by 90%.
The ten most popular cities to stay in were Budapest, Debrecen, Gyöngyös, Győr, Balatonfüred, Várgesztes, Székesfehérvár, Szeged, Siófok and Eger.
In the first five months, 2 million guests spent 5.5 million guest nights in Hungary, declines of 60% and 42%, respectively.
