Trivago has conducted a survey of hotels in Europe and it turns out that London has fared the worst in hotel ratings in Europe.
According to TravelMole:
London hotels are amongst the worst in Europe, according to a new survey.
Of all the continent’s capital cities, London came out the worse in the study by online hotel price comparison website trivago.co.uk.
Out of 1,000 cities and towns across Europe, hotels in London were given lowest collective score by users of the site.
Hotels in Birmingham also scored badly. Out of a possible 100 points, London managed only 72.2 and Birmingham 74.15.
Trivago admitted scores were heavily affected by room rates and hotel quality and agreed this may partially explain why an expensive city like London might receive a lower score than others.
“Nevertheless, such price and quality considerations are true for all
cities, and in contrast to London and Birmingham, many other cities have significantly better ratings,” said the company.
Reading between the lines there – price was a big factor in the survey results. This cannot be ignored – prices for hotels in London are pretty crazy, even for the worst hotels.
So, what do you think? Does London have the worst hotels in London? I’ve stayed in some pretty crappy hotels in my days but I’ve also stayed in some really nice ones, so I’m not the best judge.

On my last trip to London, October, 2015, I stayed at Studios2Let near St Pancras / King’s Cross. With a kitchenette & terrace, it wasn’t even all that expensive! I bought enough groceries for some meals in, to save even more. And when I go back in April, 2017, I hope to get the very same room.
