Prague ‘has cheapest European hotels’

Hotels in London are more expensive than any other capital city in Europe, meaning holidaymakers in search of value for money should head abroad this summer.

Research by hotel solutions provider HRS reveals room rates in London have risen 15.6% over the last 12 months.

Guests typically forked out £116.77 per night during the first three months of the year.

Prague in the Czech Republic is the cheapest destination for hotel breaks, with an average room rate of just under £43.

Budapest in Hungary (£50.15), Lisbon in Portugal (£51.31) and Warsaw in Poland (£54.44) also offer good value for money.

Tourists in these cities will find their holiday money stretches much further than most of Europe.

Zurich in Switzerland, on the other hand, has a typical room rate of £110.32, putting it just behind London.

On the world stage, the United States is one of the most expensive countries for hotels.

The typical cost of a one-night stay in New York is £137.54, while in San Francisco and Miami guests will pay £136.83 and £122.50 respectively.

Kuala Lumpur in Malaysia (£48), Bangkok in Thailand (£49.43) and Shanghai in China (£59.46) are the cheapest.
