Chol Hamoed laundry for studio rental

Question:

Dear Rabonim,
I understand laundering sheets, towels and linens for personal use is usually forbidden. I saw that some permit hotels to do so as they have multiple guests and would need to buy surplus if were not allowed.
We have a studio rental and have multiple guest bookings during Pesach this year. Can we consider ourselves like a hotel as we would need to purchase a large supply otherwise (in relation to our business size), or is this personal usage because we are not a hotel.
Thank you in advance

 

Answer:

Hello,

In regards to this you are considered like a hotel, and would therefore have the same leniencies as a hotel.

All the best

In regards to the question whether a hotel is allowed to wash their linen, see Shemiras Shabbos Kehilchaso Perek 66 footnote 263.
