The average hotel room in Germany costs USD 83.14 per night, which puts Germany towards the bottom of the list of European countries.
Top of the league is Sweden with an average price of USD 136.33, followed by Italy (USD 123.08) and Greece (USD 118.72). A room in the UK will set you back USD 105.53 on average.
