Building structure and floor plans.
Your Local City Hall will be able to provide the initial inspection and arrange to draw your buildings floorplans which are required to start the process of applying for your Hotel Licence.
Legal aspects for granting the license are the location of the hotel business, building structures, required facilities, minimum guest room area, health and environmental issues.
The hotel building must fulfil certain safety standards depending on its number of floors.
As an example: With no more than two floors and less than ten rooms, the walkway needs to be more than one meter wide and must arrange for fire extinguishers. For buildings having more than two floors, and more rooms, the sidewalk must be even wider.
In buildings with more than four stories, emergency escape stairways made of fire resistant material is required. Fire extinguishers, smoke alarms, escape route signage, emergency lighting and other legal requirements have to be fulfilled as well.
