trivago: Hotel prices in Turkey decreased, reputation damaged

  • Published by Vedat
According to the trivago Hotel Price Index (tHPI) reported monthly by hotel comparison website www.trivago.co.uk, hotel prices have decreased by an average of 26 per cent in Istanbul this month.

ortakoyHotel prices have decreased by an average of 26 per cent in Istanbul this month, following protests which began in the city on 28th May and have yet to be resolved. One night during July will cost an average of £93, compared to £125 during June. Prices have also decreased by 15 per cent year-on-year, with one night in July 2012 costing an average of £110. Low room rates are abnormal for this time of year, suggesting hoteliers have dropped their prices in order to encourage tourists to continue visiting the city.

Although there is no significant change in hotel prices in Ankara, where protests also occurred during June, prices in some of the unaffected tourist resorts have decreased year-on-year. Hotel prices in Antalya and Marmaris, two costal destinations popular amongst British holidaymakers, have decreased by 24 per cent and 14 per cent respectively in comparison to July 2012. One night this month will cost an average of £74 in Antalya and £77 in Marmaris, compared to £98 and £90 respectively this time last year.

Moreover, none of the Turkish destinations in the Mediterranean is listed in the top 50 best Mediterranean beach destinations. Greece toped the listing with the islands of Santorini and Crete are clear favourites, with Santorini’s Imerovigli and Fira occupying the top two spots, followed by Crete’s Chania and Rethymnon in positions four and five. Italy is another highly-rated destination, with the town of Capri taking third place. Five Spanish destinations feature in the top twenty, the highest ranked being Llanes at position eight.

The reputation percentage is calculated from over 34 million user ratings and reviews compiled from over 160 booking sites. Included in the ranking are destinations with over 5000 aggregated reviews.
