London remains most expensive European city to stay in

HRS, The Hotel Solutions Provider, has revealed that London is once again Europe’s most expensive capital to stay in, seeing an increase of more than 10 per cent compared to this time last year.
 
New research by HRS shows that average room rates in London reached nearly £130, placing the UK’s capital ahead of Paris and Copenhagen, which both have average room rates of £117 per room (€149).
 
While London also remains the most expensive UK city for its average room rate per night, another capital city, Edinburgh, is the second most expensive in the UK (£97 – seeing an increase of almost 13 per cent in average room rates against 2013). The Welsh capital also increased by over 13 per cent.
 
The cheapest rooms in the UK, on average, according to HRS, can be found in Liverpool, which saw a decrease in room rates of over two per cent compared to Q2 2013, with average rates totaling £72 per night.
 
Overall, UK hotel rates increased in the past year, reflecting growth in the UK economy.
 
Jon West, Managing Director of HRS for the UK and Ireland, said: “Thanks to the economic recovery, tourism is picking up again and this is reflected in the price increase of hotel rooms in the capital.”
