Where Aussies Can Rent The Cheapest Hotel Rooms Around The World

Want to book a holiday without spending a fortune on your hotel room? Here's what you'll pay right now for hotel rooms around Australia and around the world, including a searchable interactive map.

This data comes from Hotels.com's bi-annual Hotel Price Index, and shows the average price paid by Hotels.com customers (in Australian dollars) in each city between January and June 2014. It also shows the same price in the first half of last year, and how much that has changed.

The average price won't be a perfect indication of what you can expect to pay, especially since it covers entire cities and hence will include suburban hotels as well as those nearer to the action. However, it's a useful benchmark -- if you're looking at a destination and the prices are considerably higher than those listed here, further research would seem sensible. Conversely, if you don't have a particular city in mind, this list can help you choose more affordable locations.

Here is the data for the 97 cities listed in the report:

    Talks about hotels around the world, has a picture of lasseters alice springs :P

      Thank goodness you mentioned it, because I logged in to say the same thing. :P

      (And Alice Springs isn't even included as part of the hotel search / map!)

        I saw the thumbnail in my feed reader and thought - that looks like the MacDonnell Ranges. Which frankly makes no sense in an article about cheap hotels as it's the most expensive accom in Alice!

    isn't this more of an indication of who a typical hotels.com user is and is willing to pay, considering this must be an average from there data as there is no specification on no of rooms etc?

    P.S just went to the ABC link and it does specify per room, which would be useful info in the story, but still you can have 1 bed rooms, multi bed rooms

    Do you know how many casino dogs I've eaten leaving that place at 2am?

    mmmm Darwin is on a par with Milan, Rome and Chicago........what a joke
