A holiday or vacation apartment is a furnished apartment or flat with cooking and bathroom facilities that can be rented for holiday vacations, either from a private owner or an agency. Usually does not offer services like reception, bar or breakfast like a hotel or a guest house.

The tag will be applied to a building containing one or more holiday flats. You can either add the tags to a node showing the location of the apartment, or tag an entire building in case there are several apartments in the building.

If there are several apartments in one building, you may specify the number of apartments as number_of_apartments=* and the number of beds provided as capacity=*.

Tags used in combination

  • brand=* - the brand / association this apartment belongs to
  • operator=* - person or company responsible for the apartment
  • addr=* - the address of the apartment
  • opening_hours:reception=* - When the reception is open
  • contact=* - Contact information
  • Internet access

Relationship to tourism=chalet

Between tourism=apartment and tourism=chalet is a clear distinction: Chalets are one or more detached holiday cottages which you rent exclusively, apartments are several flats in one shared building (or one flat in one part of the building and other usages, like private apartments or a restaurant, in the other part).
