    Default UK hotels are the most expensive in Europe

    http://www.guardian.co.uk/travel/200...els.travelnews

    The UK has the most expensive hotels in Europe while London is the fifth priciest city in the world for a one-night stay, new figures reveal.

    The average cost of a one-night stay in a UK hotel rose by 12% to £106 last year, compared with 2006, according to Hotels.com, an online hotel booking site.


    I wouldn't mind, but for your £200 a night you get a box room last decorated in 1972 that smells of wee wee.

    And another thing. 12% rise. Inflation 2%. Go figure.

    Simple, a hotel room doesn't fit in a shopping basket.

    The UK taken as a whole is more expensive than anywhere in the rest of Europe.
    It's Deja-vu all over again!

    Try EasyHotel, prices start from 30 quid for London and I see they've now branched out into listing other cheap places not just their own hotels (if they still have any).

    Is it cheaper to buy a camper van and park in central london than stay in hotels?

    Offset by the better contract rates you get in the UK though. So stop whinging.
