A new study of Hotel.info argues, that European hotels are not particularly fond of air conditioners and prefer to give their guests a "warm reception". It is especially difficult stay in hotels of northern Europe this abnormally hot summer.
According to the study, Madrid hotels are the most respectful to their customers - air conditioners are installed in 72,7% of the rooms. Athens hotels keeps second place (69,1% air-conditioned rooms), then come Budapest (66,7%) and Rome (66,6%).
The worst situation is in hotels of Paris (38,6%), Prague (37,9%), Warsaw (23,2%) and London (26.3%). In Moscow only 23% of hotel rooms are air-conditioned.
Stockholm keeps the last place in the top ten. Only 13,3% of Stockholm hotels has air-conditioners in their rooms. This can be justified by the fact that it is rarely hot in the Swedish capital and the weather can be chilly even in summer time. Nevertheless, this summer tourists in Stockholm suffer from lack of air-conditioned rooms.
