Abstract

After the hotel building boom before Euro 2012, the Polish tourist branch is currently experiencing a period of stabilization. Current investments are prepared with more consideration as regards the ways of gaining and attracting new customers to the proposed services. Small and very economical buildings like hostels and motels that are erected nowadays are attracting a young part of the society, while elegant and more expensive buildings gain customers from constantly aging people. Attempts to provide better and well-adjusted functions evolve along the demand to meet different needs of people with various disabilities. Humanization and individualization of service for the benefit of various customers should be based on appropriate ergonomic solutions and novel technologies. Analyses will be carried out on recommendations for hotels designed for people with disabilities, different medical conditions and representative case studies of German examples.
