Abstract: Localization belongs to the important decision-making processes in the enterprise. The decision on the location of the accommodation facility depends on localization factors, i.e. site-specific characteristics. They represent the basis for the determination of the spatial location of the accommodation facility, especially in the long term. The location of the tourist accommodation facility specifies its economic structure and determines further development. The paper was directed on the recognition, description and evaluation of localization factors that were important in deciding on the location of selected accommodation facilities at the beginning of their activities. Localization factors are divided into these categories: labor, market, land and natural resources, environment, infrastructure, legal, social, and economic conditions. Research data were obtained by questionnaire method and combined interview method. The results of the survey in the final phase showed that entrepreneurs in the field of accommodation and tourist facilities were satisfied with the location of their facility and evaluated their decision as the most correct.
