Hotels are one of the main pillars in the success of the process of tourist activities in countries that have a variety of tourist elements. The variety and classification of hotels differentiates the levels of quality in services. In the case of the sacred province of Karbala, a hotel classification with a variety of quality levels and stars was adopted to express the diversity of services offered within the country's conditions and tourist demand.
