Kharkiv Hotels Boast of Fake Stars

Two Kharkiv hotels recently published bogus information about their star rating category and misinformed their visitors.

The fact was discovered and reported by the Kharkiv regional territorial office of the Antimonopoly Committee of Ukraine.

The antimonopoly representatives found out that according to Park Service LLC, the Park Hotel, located on Shevchenko Street, has a category of four-star rating. At the same, time Concord Company informs that the Gubernia hotel complex on Poltavsky Shlyakh has obtained a three-star rating.

The Antimonopoly Committee states that in reality, these two hotels do not have any awarded certification with any formal categories or ratings.

The Committee issued recommendations to the businessmen to stop spreading false information about their hotels.

However, travelers and foreign visitors admit that the main source of information they use when booking hotels is user-generated online review and not the official hotel website.
