New research by HRS, The Hotel Solutions Provider, has revealed that London has become Europe’s most expensive capital to stay in, seeing an increase of more than 13 per cent in room rates compared to Q1 2013.
With average room rates in London reaching nearly £116, the UK capital is ahead of Zurich and Moscow which both have average room rates of £111 per room (€135).
While London also remains the most expensive UK city for its average room rate per night, Edinburgh is the second most expensive in the UK (£89), with the city seeing an increase of almost 12 per cent in average room rates against Q1 2013. Dublin has increased its average room rate over 14 per cent over the same period.
HRS found the cheapest rooms can be found in Liverpool which saw a decrease in room rates of nearly five per cent compared to Q1 2013, with average room rates totalling an average of £69 per night.
Overall, UK hotel rates increased in the past year, alongside forecasts remaining upbeat for the UK economy, which suggests that 2014 can once again be met with similar optimism for the UK’s hotel industry.
