10 Cities for the Cheapest and the Most Expensive Hotels

Hotel management in the world generates an approximate revenue of $500 bn every year  [1] and I guess there’s almost no one who has never stayed at a hotel. When it comes to staying at a hotel, the primary concern is cleanliness, of course, followed by the room rates.

The imminent fact is that you may lose a lot of money if you don’t know where to look. So it’s always a good idea to check several websites, including the hotel’s own. Some cities, on the other hand, are naturally expensive due to the country’s economy or the location of the city.

Hotels.com, the world-wide accommodation search engine, has published its 2013 statistics regarding the average room rates by country and cities [2]. The list is quite long and you can have it in full by clicking on the second reference of this article, but the top-5 for the most expensive and the cheapest can be found below.
