When it comes to luxury for less, it’s a tale of two continents, with destinations in Europe and Asia making up the top five affordable five-star accommodation hot spots globally. In order, the five most affordable destinations for five-star hotel accommodation in 2014 were: Warsaw,Poland; Mumbai, India; Bangkok, Thailand; Delhi, India and Lisbon, Portugal.
