A well-designed apartment guarantees more guests, because the visually attractive apartment, along with professionally prepared Hosta photos and descriptions, are one of the key factors when deciding on the apartments booking. Guests select their apartment primarily by well-designed and nicely decorated apartments where they will feel comfortable during their stay.
Who can design apartment?
Contact us with confidence, HOSTA team will prepare a design proposal for you, choose all materials and equipment, and monitor the process of designing and placing all the equipment in accordance with it.
What technical solutions could save the money?
Well-designed and equipped apartment does not mean you have to choose the most expensive and brightest materials and equipment. The same effect of a well-designed apartment, and thus attractive to guests, can be achieved with cheaper, but no less quality materials and equipment. Your HOSTA team will advise you throughout the entire process so that your budget for planning can be optimally deployed to achieve a top-notch effect.
How to obtain price lists of materials and equipment from the factory?
With confidence, contact the HOSTA team who will find and obtain the best prices of equipment and materials.
I have an existing apartment, how do I decorate it aesthetically? Who can do this for me?
HOSTA Team can prepare on your behalf the proposal for the design of the apartment, design of the conceptual solution and price estimate, purchase of equipment and materials, construction work and cleaning after the works.
Is the classification procedure the same for the whole country?
Yes, the same rules apply to the entire territory of the Republic of Croatia.
How much does the classification process cost?
The cost of the classification procedure depends on the number of accommodation units, and the type of applicant, if the person is a private person, the administrative fee is between 9,50 - 13,50€ , companies in the amount of 24,00 - 150,00€.
How long does the classification process last?
The classification procedure lasts an average of 7 to 15 days from the date of submission of the request for issuing a decision on classification. The procedure may take a little longer if the application for a solution is submitted in the month before the beginning of the tourist season.
What type of facility is the most likely to categorize my property?
According to our experiences it is most likely to categorize the property in a studio apartment, apartment or holiday home.
What is more worthwhile for me, to have more starts and fewer beds or fewer stars bud more beds?
If your property meets the highest star rating prescribed by the classification regulations, then you should definitely opt for the highest possible stars. Which ultimately makes your apartment more competitive on the market. But the good sale price of the apartment can be achieved even with less stars if it is nicely decorated and designed. A large number of beds provide the possibility for guests to share the cost of overnight stays, which significantly reduces their costs, which ultimately makes your apartment competitive in the market.
Can someone carry out a classification procedure on my behalf and how much does it cost?
HOSTA can carry out the entire classification procedure completely free of charge to our users, you will only pay the state fee.
What is the state strategy with respect to each category of renter?
One of the key national strategic determinants in tourism is the promotion and development of family accommodation, in terms of raising the quality of accommodation itself and the overall service. At this point, there are a whole range of non-refundable tenders available to stakeholders in tourism, as well as a whole series of credit lines aimed at the development of family accommodation.
