13/03/2012Dutch hotels top euro zone price list

Last year the Netherlands was the most expensive country in the euro zone for hotel accommodation. On average, tourists had to shell out 108 euros a night for a hotel room, according to the hotel price index published by website hotels.com and reported on nu.nl.

Amsterdam was the most expensive Dutch city, with an average hotel price of 124 euros a night. The national average price rose by four percent compared to 2010, while prices in the capital went up by seven percent.

Prices in The Hague, the second most expensive Dutch city, fell by two percent over the same period, to an average of 103 euros. In Utrecht prices tumbled nine percent to 96 euros a night.

Comparing hotel prices around the world, the Netherlands occupies 27th place. Oman heads the list of most expensive countries to bed down for night. In 2011, hotel prices there rose by a staggering 24 percent to average out at 247 euros.

Oman’s capital Muscat tops the list of the world’s most expensive cities for hotel prices. New York is second, with an average nightly rate of 177 euros. The biggest bargain is to be found in the Cambodian capital Phnom Penh, where one night in a hotel costs 44 euros on average.

Its true but worry, the price will have to drop when they close the coffeeshops and most of the tourists go elsewhere.
