Classification and characteristics of hotels in the world
It is well known that the level of service in any hotel in any point of the globe depends on its classification — it could be the European system of “stars” or Asian-African scoring system that took as a basis the Indian national system.

Each country has its own peculiarities that distinguish the classification of, for example, the Turkish hotels from Russian or French. On the other hand, many of the requirements for the hotels, depending on stars, of course, the same. The main factors are the number and size of rooms, service, comfort, equipment in the hotel, etc Certification of hotels can be conducted at both the national and international level.
The system of “stars”, as already mentioned, mainly used in Europe and many other countries, such as Russia. China. Brazil, etc. as examples we can consider the French, Dutch and Turkish classification, as tipichnost hotels a number of stars there easily traced.
