Recently studies of factors affecting the successful operation of small-scale accommodation facilities have expanded significantly. Mandatory classification of hotels and other accommodation facilities is one of the key factors to increase their competitiveness. However, there are few works studying the problems of classifying small-scale accommodation facilities in conditions of infrastructural restrictions in environmentally sensitive areas. Therefore, the factors affecting the functioning of small-scale accommodation facilities in territories with environmental restrictions are discussed in this study in the context of the mandatory classification of hotels and other accommodation facilities in the Russia. The research uses the case of Enkheluk village’s guest houses (Russian Federation, Republic of Buryatia). Primary data obtained during the interviews with local entrepreneurs in 2018 was used in the study. The main infrastructural restrictions influencing the entrepreneurs providing temporary tourists’ accommodation were revealed: in the field of water supply, wastewater disposal, passing an environmental assessment. These problems, having a dynamic and interconnected nature, constrain the passing of mandatory classification by small-scale accommodation facilities. Possible ways of solving these problems are formulated. The study’s results can serve as the basis for further studies of factors affecting entrepreneurial and investment activities in the field of accommodation in environmentally sensitive areas.
