The hotel sector in Paris is suffering from dwindling bookings as the numbers of visitors dropped following the November terror attack.
Hotel bookings are down for the normally busy pre-Christmas period, according to wholesale hotel room buyer JacTravel.
"Families are staying away and those who are visiting are staying for fewer nights," said Cecile Danielo, regional head of contracting for JacTravel, in a press release.
"The picture is highly volatile with prices changing from day to day."
In the week following the attacks, in which 130 people died after a series of co-ordinated strikes by gunmen around the French capital, the number of flight cancellations rose 21 percent and the number of new bookings fell 27 percent compared to the year before, according to research by data analysts ForwardKeys.
However, the situation is slowly improving, according to JacTravel, and hotels are offering a range of promotions to attract customers, such as room upgrades and discounts of up to 30 percent on short stays.
"There is so much support for Paris from around the world and Parisian hoteliers are taking that on board to remain optimistic," Cecile concluded. "The city is less crowded than you would expect for this time of year. But there is still life in Paris."
