Learnings from the Mews Data Dive: the state of hospitality in H1 2022

What’s in the Mews Data Dive? 

The Mews Data Dive examines ten key areas that affect all hoteliers. They are: 
  1. Occupancy 
  2. Domestic travel 
  3. Online check-in and kiosk usage 
  4. Chargebacks 
  5. RevPAR and ADR 
  6. Booking lead times 
  7. Additional bookable services 
  8. Hotel staff 
  9. Rate types 
  10. Integrations 
Now, we’re not going to go through everything in the Data Dive – otherwise you wouldn’t need to download it and see all our beautiful designs. But here are a couple of sections for you to get a flavor of what’s inside. 


Headline news 
After two incredibly difficult years (for reasons we don’t need to go over again), occupancy is almost back at 2019 levels. For certain regions – for instance Spain, France, Germany, the Netherlands and the UK – occupancy levels have already reached parity, and the same is true for particular accommodation types such as apartment rentals. 
When we look at month-on-month performance, there’s also a positive trend from January through to June, which is broadly what we’d expect to see. Hotels and hostels follow a similar pattern of filling up as the year progresses, while occupancy in serviced apartments also increases as we reach the summer, albeit at a slower pace thanks to strong, consistent performances during the winter.
