Top 100 international destinations according to hotel ratings.
Last year, two of Europe’s most popular vacation destinations – Paris and London – ended up near the bottom of Trivago’s Reputation Ranking, which lists the world’s top destination cities according to average hotel ratings.
Paris ranked slightly above London this year, but neither city is exactly in a position to boast. In this list of the top 100 international destinations according to hotel ratings, the French and British capitals were in 92nd and 96th place respectively. Paris and London were outranked by a number of rival European destinations, including Prague (18th), Vienna (23rd), and Berlin (24th).
To maximise their chances of having a satisfying hotel experience, according to the aggregate ratings from Trivago users, travellers should head to Sorrento, Italy; Dresden, Germany; or Gdansk, Poland, which secured the top three spots.
At the end of the ranking, behind London, are Singapore (97th) and the Indonesian cities of Bandung (98th) and Jakarta (99th). Manila, in the Philippines, is in the very last place.
To make it into the Trivago Reputation Ranking, cities must have a minimum of 130 hotels and at least 60 ratings on Trivago for each hotel. Over 82 million traveller ratings went into the calculation of the ranking — AFP Relaxnews
