The Price Index shows: Moscow is the world’s most expensive city for hotels, in Great Britain Birmingham is more expensive than London with Glasgow offering good value

London, 22. April 2008 – A recent analysis of overnight prices in 3-star hotels in key world cities undertaken by (the free of charge online hotel reservation service) has shown that Moscow is the most expensive hotel city in the world. A comparison of hotel prices in British cities shows that Birmingham is the most expensive and that Glasgow offers relatively good value.

The average overnight stay in Moscow costs GBP 125 and is often more expensive than the average rate in other world metropolises. Only New York comes close to Moscow with an average rate of GBP 122.

In Tokyo and Sydney a similar night in a single room costs around GBP 70. Compared with the Russian capital this represents a price difference of almost 80%. Moscow is expensive but Warsaw (at GBP 66 per night) confirms the general belief that hotels in Eastern Europe are comparatively cheap. Scandinavia has certainly earned its reputation for high prices as Copenhagen, Oslo, Stockholm and Helsinki are amongst the ten most expensive cities in the world. As may be expected Zurich in Switzerland is also amongst the top ten. In Paris, Rome and Madrid a bed costs an average of GBP 73 for a night in a 3-star hotel.

In a comparison of British cities with more than 220,000 inhabitants Birmingham comes out the most expensive, although still GBP 45 cheaper than Moscow. From the point of view of attractive prices, England’s second largest city with GBP 80 shows a poor comparison with Edinburgh (GBP 76), Leicester (GBP 75), Liverpool (GBP 73), Kingston upon Hull and Leeds (GBP 70 each). London comes a close second with GBP 79. Surprisingly a night in the largest Scottish city, Glasgow, costs on average GBP 61 in a 3-star hotel – almost GBP 15 less than in the Scottish capital Edinburgh.
