PRAGUE, November 6. /TASS/. A hotel in the Czech city of Ostrava is ready to open its doors to tourists from Russia after it has been fined for its refusal to accomodate Russian citizens, the Brioni Boutique hotel's manager said on Thursday.
"All restrictions have been lifted and one room has already been booked," the manager told TASS.
The hotel's owner, Tomas Krcmar, decided to boycott Russian tourists in March following Crimea's reunification with Russia.
A number of Czech tourists agencies protested against Krcmar's move as the country's hotel business was suffering losses due to the decline of tourist flow from Russia. The hotel was later fined $2,300 by the Czech trade inspection.
According to the country's statistic service, only 282,000 Russian tourists visited the Czech Republic in the first six months of 2014, which is 7% less than in January-June 2013.
