The peak is reached when we analyze data from London. In this case, even if we compare a property listed with a pool or a hot tub, with a hotel with the same amenities, the Airbnb is 59% less expensive.
In the United Kingdom, the only exception is represented by Northampton where Airbnb has a rate 2% more expensive than hotels.
