Most expensive city in the world to order a club sandwich...

The world’s most romantic city, Paris, has been named the most expensive city in the world to order a Club Sandwich, according to research released today by Hotels.com.

The classic chicken, bacon, egg, lettuce and mayo sandwich, available in hotels the world over, has been used as a measure of affordability by the hotel expert.

The Club Sandwich Index (CSI) will give holiday-makers an indication of the costs associated with their holiday destination, using one of the most common items on any hotel menu around the world as a barometer.

The CSI average price has been calculated by taking the real prices paid by guests for a Club Sandwich in 30 hotels in the capital and major city of each country measured.

In total Hotels.com surveyed the Club Sandwich prices in 750 hotels in the five, four and three star category across 26 countries.

In the French capital, the CSI showed prices ranged from an extraordinary $54 for a ‘Club’ in a five-star hotel to a more reasonable $22.13 in a two star establishment, with the Paris average cost of a Club coming in at $33.10.

The second most expensive city was found to be the Swiss city Geneva, where the sandwich costs an average of $32.56, followed closely by $30.50 for a Club in Oslo.
