Dear Kristian, thanks for your time! Tell me, do you see a main hotel product trend developing within the next years on the Croatian coast, and do you see any difference between the hotels that are planned on the Istrian versus the Dalmatian coast?
In which way do you think Croatian hotels could gain a higher competitive edge?
In terms of Zagreb, and considering the new hotel developments in the pipeline, what hotel category do you think can offer the highest return in the near future?
What would you say is the current profile of foreign hotel investors in Croatia and do you predict any change in the type of investors coming?
If you personally had to invest in a hotel, what type of property would you invest in and where?
Kristian, it has been a pleasure interviewing you! Thanks very much for your highly professional insights on the Croatian hotel market. I wish you all the best for the future.
Thanks Marco, it has been my pleasure!
