Bad news for London travelers: Not only are London hotels expensive, they're also reportedly among the world's worst.

Only hotels with a minimum of 60 reviews were considered, and a city needed to have at least 135 hotels to be included.
London came in last among the 100 cities ranked, but which city came in first? Dresden, Germany. Never been there? In second came Hanoi, Vietnam. And in No. 3, an American city: Portland, Ore.
Other cities that didn't fare well: Los Angeles, which came in at 91 of 100, and Paris. which came in at 97 out of 100. Following, a list of the 10 best and the 10 worst, according to Trivago.
