London is second to Zurich as the most expensive hotel city in Europe

London has the second most expensive hotels in Europe behind Zurich, according to online travel agent HRS.

Average room rates in London during 2013 were £117.86 (up 3.6% compared with 2012), behind the £120.23 achieved in Zurich. Moscow was ranked third across Europe with a rate of £117.35, followed by Stockholm (£113.95) and Paris (£111.16).

Outside of Europe, the top five most expensive hotel rooms were found in New York with an average rate of £115.29, Rio de Janerio (£149.05), Sydney (£144.79), Singapore (£120.24) and Hong Kong (£116.30).

Within the UK, Edinburgh came out as the second most expensive city behind London with an average room rate of £94.90, a decrease of nearly 6% on 2012, followed by Bristol with a rate of £84.63 (up 2.4% on 2012). Reading and Manchester were in fourth and fifth place with respective rates of £84.62 (+2.2%) and £80.99 (+2.1%).

Overall, UK hotel rates increased in the past year, which alongside optimistic forecasts for the economy suggests the year ahead could be an optimistic one for the domestic hotel industry.
