On the Hotel Price Index, Berlin is ranked as one of the most affordable cities for luxury hotels in the world. (The average price of a luxury hotel in Berlin in 2011: $198 per night.) And for nonluxury hotels, the rates are even better. According to a representative from the Berlin tourism board, "A survey conducted by Hotels.com showed that Berlin’s average hotel rate of €76 per night lies significantly below those of other top destinations." For example, travelers paid an average of €171 in New York, €134 in London, and €114 in Paris and in Rome during the first half of 2011.
