About the Methodology:

The survey was conducted in June 2016. For each luxury hotel located in Europe, the cheapest available rate for a double room during the months of July and August was established. Only two- or three-night stays were considered, excluding Sundays and Mondays. Therefore, for stays of four nights or more, more affordable rates may be available.
