The fvw Hotelometer is a fortnightly ranking of the most popular tourist hotels in Spain, Turkey and Greece, based on all enquiries in the Traveltainment reservations system used by German travel agents and online booking engines. The data, supplied by IT company TrevoTrend and split into different categories (overall, families, couples, singles and star ratings), thus reflect demand trends but do not show actual bookings.
