Guest nights at commercial accommodations in Hungary soared by an annual 413.5 percent to 1,082,000 in February, from a low base impacted by pandemic-related travel restrictions, the Central Statistical Office (KSH) said on Wednesday.

The number of guest nights spent by domestic travellers increased by 319.6 percent to 597,000 and the number spent by foreign visitors climbed by 608.4 percent to 485,000.
