World’s Worst Cities for Hotels

iStockphoto/Thinkstock(NEW YORK) -- Bad news for London travelers: Not only are London hotels expensive, they’re also reportedly among the world’s worst.

At least, that’s according to data from Trivago, a price-comparison hotel search site based in Germany and recently acquired by Expedia.

The “Online Hotel Reputation Index” is based on 34 million travel reviews from 140 different sites (including such names as Expedia, Priceline and Hotels.com).  Only hotels with a minimum of 60 reviews were considered, and a city needed to have at least 135 hotels to be included.

London came in last among the 100 cities ranked, and Dresden, Germany, came in first.  In second, came Hanoi, Vietnam.  And in the third spot, an American city: Portland, Ore.

Other cities that didn’t fare well: Los Angeles, which came in at 91 of 100, and Paris, which came in at 97 out of 100.

Here are the 10 best cities (1 – 10) for hotels, according to Trivago:

  • Dresden, Germany
  • Hanoi, Vietnam
  • Portland, Oregon
  • Tokyo
  • Santiago de Compostela, Spain
  • Gdansk, Poland
  • Chicago
  • Seattle
  • Krakow, Poland
  • Budapest, Hungary

And the 10 worst cities (91 – 100) for hotels:

  • Los Angeles
  • Kyiv, Ukraine
  • Frankfurt, Germany
  • Panama City, Panama
  • Brussels, Belgium
  • Amsterdam
  • Paris
  • Copenhagen, Denmark
  • Rio de Janeiro, Brazil
  • London
