ABU DHABI // Abu Dhabi will collect a 4 per cent municipal fee from hotels across the emirate starting on June 1.

The 4 per cent fee will be added to guests’ bills for their hotel stay, along with a Dh15 charge per night and per room, the Department of Municipal Affairs and Transport and the Abu Dhabi Tourism and Culture Authority announced Sunday.

The authority said it has formally notified hotels and tourist facilities of the decision and will soon hold workshops to introduce the municipal fee collection and deposit mechanisms.

The fees will be used towards developing the emirate’s tourism infrastructure and enhancing hotel services, Abu Dhabi Municipality said in a statement.
