* Although the regulatory classification above is the basis for statistical survey by relevant government authorities, it does not necessarily match the classification used in the market. For example, most popular types such as guesthouse and pension cannot be defined by the regulatory classification, and therefore, there is no official statistics for them. Please check here for the lodging property types by regulation. Hotelysis uses our own classification matrix, which further breaks down the regulatory classification in accordance with the market practice, so that it fully utilizes available statistics as well as takes into consideration of market dynamics properly. The criteria for segmentation of lodging properties by size are as following:
