In the run-up to the London Summer Olympics 2012 in August, sports fans from America, France and Germany have made the largest number of bookings of London hotel rooms, according to the online hotel bookings operator LateRooms.com.

Americans booked the highest number of rooms on the LateRooms website, with Zimbabweans and Ghana citizens also figuring among the Top Ten list of international bookers. Japan, Mexico and Argentina also made the list.

French travellers, on the other hand, topped the Top Ten list of European bookers, followed by the Germans, Dutch and Spanish, among others.

LateRooms.com offline marketing manager Lynda Matthews said London has always been a hotspot with international visitors over the summer months.

"LateRooms.com still has plenty of hotel availability, and as the big summer events draw closer, we are anticipating additional rooms to be released and seeing prices drop also. We would also advise customers to look into staying in the areas surrounding central London, where availability will be greater and room rates potentially lower," Matthews said.

UK-based LateRooms.com offers bookings and deals for over 60,000 hotel properties worldwide.
