London is the most expensive European city to stay in, according to new research.
Average room rates in the UK capital have reached nearly £116, more than Zurich and Moscow, which both have an average rate of £111 per bedroom (135 euros), said a report from the HRS, the Hotel Solutions Provider.
London's average rate climbed by 13% this year compared to the first quarter of 2013. The city was closely followed by Edinburgh, with an average of £89 and increase of almost 12%. Dublin's rooms increased by 14%, with an average room rate of £77.
At the other end of the scale, Liverpool's average rate was at £69 per night, a decrease in nearly 5% compared to 2013. This makes it the cheapest city in a list that also includes Cardiff (£82), Glasgow (£70), Bristol (£85), Leeds (£79) and Manchester (£83).
Europe-wise, Moscow and Zurich's rate dropped by 7% and 2% respectively, but Budapest's hotel rooms are the most inexpensive, with rates at just 66 euros (£54). Other cities included were Athens (81 euros, £66), Milan (108 euros, £88) and Warsaw (76 euros, £62).
Worldwide, Sydney was the most expensive (£143) followed by New York (£126) and Los Angeles (£123).
The results from this study come in light of another recent report from STR Global, which said demand for London hotel rooms was staying ahead of supply.
