There are currently 28 Hilton brand hotels in Europe, including Poland, Romania, Russia and Turkey at 5,000 Hilton Honors points per reward night.
Six months ago on Sep 14, 2017, I published a list of 24 Hilton brand hotels in Europe available for 5,000 points per night.
Eight hotels at 5,000 points six months ago are now 10,000 points per night.
The increase in category 1 hotels at 5,000 points from 24 hotels to 28 hotels in Europe in 2018 is almost entirely due to 11 additional hotels in Turkey.
One new Hampton Inn Iasi, Romania is the only other hotel to be added to category 1 hotel reward nights in Europe at 5,000 points.
Since Hilton Honors is changing reward prices without notice in 2018 for many low level hotels, these reward rates are subject to change at any time.

Hotels at 5,000 points were formerly called Hilton Honors category 1 hotels, then HHonors changed to a dynamic pricing model. Still, there are 5,000 points reward nights offered at some hotels in Europe and worldwide. These hotels are also available for 5th night free stays at 20,000 points.
Many more Hilton brand hotels worldwide at 10,000 points, the former category 2 level. I have found hotels at other low rates too, like 8,000 points and 11,000 points.
Hilton brand hotels at 5,000 points and 10,000 points are usually that rate most dates and not subject to dynamic pricing for reward nights.
