The 5-star destination with the lowest average daily rate was Warsaw, Poland, with Marrakech, Morocco coming in a close second.

*Presently, there is no globally recognized star rating system. Each country has its own, and there are even select markets which have more than one. Travellers should be aware of a possible disparity of standards and facilities when booking rooms with the same star ratings in different countries.
