Copenhagen among most expensive cities to stay overnight in Europe

Danish capital ranked fifth overall out of forty cities surveyed by Cheaprooms.co.uk

With more and more international travellers venturing abroad these days, perhaps it’s once again prudent to sally forth with one of those overnight expense rankings.

And to perhaps no-one’s surprise, Copenhagen finds itself ranked among the most expensive cities to stay in. 

According to a September 2021 survey by Cheaprooms.co.uk, the Danish capital was ranked fifth overall with an average price of 83 UK pounds per night for the cheapest available double room.

Only Zurich (£113), Hamburg (£95), Milan (£92) and Reykjavík (£91) were found to be more expensive.

At the opposite end of the spectrum, Istanbul offered up the most affordable average price at just £15, preceded by Riga, Prague, Moscow and Krakow.

While it seems dour reading for some, there may be some good news for travellers hunting for a bargain as only centrally-located hotels rated at least three stars were considered for the survey.
