Download the full list of cities analysed.
Finnish travellers looking to score a 5-star stay for €100 or less would have found just 4 choices out of their popular destinations list, and they were: Alanya, Istanbul, Kuala Lumpur and Riga.
If they were open to staying in 4-star accommodation though, the choice widened up considerably. For the same budget at that level, there were 29 places in Europe and Asia. Berlin, Budapest, Prague and St Petersburg were some of the European destinations, while Beijing, Koh Samui, Langkawi and Ho Chi Minh City were amongst the favourite Asian places.
Three-star accommodation for €100 or less was mainly found in Europe for Finnish travellers. Five domestic destinations appear on the list, including Helsinki, Lahti and Tampere. Popular European spots included Chania, Malaga and St Julian’s as well as the capital cities of Brussels, Lisbon, Madrid and Vienna. Las Vegas and Orlando represented U.S. cities and for those Finns wishing to go even further afield, they could have chosen Hong Kong, Osaka, Shanghai and Tokyo in Asia with Dubai, Melbourne and Sydney elsewhere.
Barcelona, London, Oslo and Paris were some of the famous names in the 2-star set. Chicago and Miami were options in the U.S. while Kyoto was the only Asian choice here.
The sum of €100 or less covered a good selection of European favourites at the 1-star level, including Amsterdam, Copenhagen and Munich, as well as several U.S. choices such as New York and Los Angeles.
Hotel star ratings explained
There is no universal star rating system. Each country has its own and, in some cases such as the UK, more than one. This means that travellers should be aware of a possible disparity of standards and facilities when booking rooms with the same star ratings in different countries.
Checking out guests reviews is another way of judging the standard of a hotel. Hotels.com has more than 25 million verified guest reviews from people who have actually stayed in the hotels and their opinions can really help you make up your mind as to whether you have found the best fit to have the most rewarding travel experience possible.
