In Zurich, visitors should expect to pay an average price of GBP 113 per night for the cheapest available double room.

Switzerland’s largest city regularly tops the European charts in living standards and quality of life, with high salaries, good quality healthcare, and remarkably low crime rates all contributing factors. Corporate travellers are naturally drawn to the city due to its standing as one of the world’s largest financial centres, despite its comparatively small population, with many financial institutions and banking companies seeing fit to conduct their business in Zurich, according to The SilverDoor.

2. Hamburg

Visitors travelling to Milan can expect steep prices too, with average room rates of GBP 92.

Milan is located in Northern Italy so it has a good amount of French and Swiss influence — especially when compared to southern Italy. Milan is also more expensive than many other cities in Italy since it’s the country’s business center. Milan isn’t a huge tourism destination, but Leonardo da Vinci’s The Last Supper and the amazing Duomo Cathedral are the two main draws, as presented by The Savvy Backpacker.

4. Reykjavík

Reykjavík is the capital city of Iceland, the world’s northernmost capital. Nearly two-thirds of the country’s population lives in the capital area. Granted, that’s only around 123,000 people, but what it lacks in terms of the populace, it makes up for in culture and excitement. Reykjavík is famous for having a thriving nightlife scene and for hosting some of the best music festivals in Northern Europe such as Iceland Airwaves, according to Arctic Adventures.

5. Copenhagen

The average price for a room per night in Paris is GBP 78.

Paris, the capital of France, is a major European city. For centuries Paris has been one of the world’s most important and attractive cities. It is appreciated for the opportunities it offers for business and commerce, for study, for culture, and for entertainment; its gastronomy, haute couture, painting, literature, and intellectual community especially enjoy an enviable reputation. Its sobriquet “the City of Light”, earned during the Enlightenment, remains appropriate, for Paris has retained its importance as a centre for education and intellectual pursuits, according to Britannica.

The average rent in Helsinki for a double room is GBP 77 for a night.

Helsinki is Finland's southern capital, sitting on a peninsula in the Gulf of Finland. Helsinki is a fascinating combination of influences that aren't found elsewhere and it's clean and well organized, but it's notoriously expensive as well, according to Price of Travel. The elevated price level in Finland is often attributed to the low level of competition in the closed-sector industries, as reported by Bank of Finland.
