Hotel Turnover Down 30 Percent

The Estonian Association of Hotels and Restaurants says hotel turnover is down 30 percent over the past nine months and will fall further in the fourth quarter.
"But this has nothing to do with the city being overbuilt with hotels," says organization spokesman Tanel Tuba. "So what if Tallinn has almost twice the hotel rooms Helsinki has with only a fraction of their economy. We're Estonia, and the usual rules just don't apply to us." Tuba demonstrated his point by leaping in the air for several seconds longer than would be possible in Helsinki. "See, even gravity is different here." Tuba then demonstrated the superiority of the Tallinn market by paying two euros for a coffee at a substandard restaurant.
