Why are the Rooms so Expensive

Your Room Costs are broken down as follows,

1. Taxes =20%,

2. Commission to the "Online Travel Agent" that you booked the room with 20%

3. Card Commission, payment via a Business Credit Card as high as 5%.

4. The remaining 55% goes to the Hotel for Cleaning, Maintenance, Electric, Gas, Water, Staff Costs,

So, work it out, 45% of your Hotel Bill does NOT even go to the Hotel.
