As far as I am led to believe, this is still a proposed tax and has not been officially confirmed yet. I'm sure more information will be provided if and when that becomes the case. The proposals are for a sliding scale of charges per person, per night - depending on the class of accommodation - and range from 6TL for one and two star hotels, hostels etc, up to 18TL for five-star hotels. There would be no charge for children under 12.

Is Turkey deliberately trying to price themselves out of the holiday market with this new room tax and the increase in Visa prices?

They've now proposed a change to this - so instead of a fixed rate fee, the room tax would be 1% of the room cost. Whatever people may think about this, it's something which many other countries have charged for years, but it's often hidden within the overall accommodation cost, so people often don't notice it unless they read the small print.
