European hotel booking site Trivago just released their April hotel price charts, and Venice was voted “most expensive city in Europe”.
At the bottom of the list is Budapest, where you can find a room for an average of 83 Euros a night.
The rest of the top 10 list is as follows:
- Venice (€177)
- Genèva (€174)
- Paris (€149)
- Oslo (€146)
- Amsterdam (€144)
- Rome (€144)
- Copenhagen (€135)
- Bruges (€133)
- London (€131)
- Florence (€130)
To me, these numbers mean that the poor economy has not yet had a big impact on hotel prices, and that most European cities are still insanely expensive for tourists. Of course, these prices are the average for April bookings, which means the summer prices will be even higher.
One thing to keep in mind, is that these numbers are put together based off hotels that participate in global reservation systems, which means that small hotels and hostels are not included in the research.
