The tourist tax is known as the hotel tax (taksa e fjetjes ne hotel) and is decided by local governments (municipalities). Previously the tax was calculated as a percentage of the cost of the room but is now levied at a fixed rate per person or per room per night. Usually it is levied per person and the rate payable depends on the hotel’s star rating.
