A recent Hotels.com survey gave New York City a No. 2 ranking among the world's best taxis. With 1,600 participants polled across 28 countries, the survey took place in July, the site announced Thursday in a news release.

London taxis were found to be the best of the best, with the Top Five filled out by Tokyo (No. 3), Shanghai (4) and Bangkok (5).

Of the seven categories folks voted on, NYC did beat all others for Best Availability. London, however, took top honors for Cleanliness, Knowledge of the Area and Friendliness, among others. Must be the accent.

American participants were questioned about the most unusual item they had left in a cab. Responses included a lone shoe, a bra and a blowup doll.
