Based on more than 34 million reviews from 140
hotel booking sites, the survey is compiled by UK-based metasearch site www.trivago.co.uk and ranks cities by
percentage of positive reviews.
The survey includes a number of surprise
results, with top tourist destinations and world hubs mostly coming in at the bottom
of the ranking. London, for instance, is very last on the list, just below such
other prominent cities as Paris, Amsterdan and Copenhagen. The snooty attitudes
towards tourists that France is famous for (the country’s second biggest city
Lyon came in 90th) no longer seem charming, if they ever were.
This is surprising company for Kyiv, which
comes in 92nd in the ranking. Both as a country and as individual cities,
Ukraine usually falls into a neighborhood populated by African and Middle
Eastern states. Here, however, its fellows at the bottom are such flashy cities
as Los Angeles and Rio de Janeiro.
