Moscow still has the most expensive hotels in the world

MoscowAccording to a new survery carried out by HRG, Moscow has the most expensive hotels in the world for the second year running, with an average room rate of almost $500 a night – some distance ahead of second-placed New York with an average rate of $360. Mumbai, which doesn’t quite make the top 10, has seen the most marked increase in rates  – a 30% rise to just under $300 in only 6 months.   Of course, these are just average rates; it would be interesting to note the differences occurring specifically at the luxury end of the market but sadly this doesn’t appear to be detailed.

  1. Hi! That is the fact that hotels in Moscow are extremly expensive. One reason for this there are not enough hotels in Moscow to provide tourists and business people with accomodation. Famous hotel “Moscow” for 1200 rooms was destroyed. There are only few hotels with good quality in center city.
