The joy of travel is one of life's true treasures, but with an abundance of options available, finding the perfect place to stay can often feel like searching for a needle in a haystack. Our meticulously crafted guides are your compass to the 10 finest hotels, resorts, and lodges of each destination.

Each recommendation is carefully selected by our team of travel aficionados and hotel lovers. We personally stay at each location, ensuring that all suggestions are based on genuine firsthand experiences.

Frequently Asked Questions

Are you a travel agency? Can I book through this site?

We're here to inspire your travel choices, not to handle bookings or sales. For each hotel we feature, we provide a direct link to their official website. While you have the freedom to book through any platform, we encourage you to book directly with the hotel for the best experience.

Do you visit hotels without revealing your identity?

For our hotel evaluations, we sometimes visit anonymously but typically inform the hotels of our stay beforehand, to better understand their offerings and secure permission for photography. Rest assured, it does not influence our selection. Our commitment lies in authenticity and quality; only hotels we genuinely admire are featured in our guide, regardless of any prior arrangements.

Doesn't a list of only 10 hotels seem quite limited?

It can be indeed challenging to narrow down our choices to such a limited number but selecting only 10 hotels allows us to highlight the absolute best for each destination. Nevertheless, recognizing the wealth of quality accommodations out there, we've recently begun to include an additional section in our guides, listing further great places to stay, and also highlighting unique lodging alternatives.

Are the 10 hotels for each guide ranked in any way?

No, we do not rank the hotels from one to ten in terms of quality or preference. The position of a property within the list, whether first or last, does not denote its superiority. Instead, we sometimes categorize hotels by their location or type to help you navigate our selections. Moreover, we often reserve a unique highlight for the last hotel on our list, making it worth to scroll to the end of the list.

How do you earn money?

We sustain our website independently, without selling hotel placements or manipulating our rankings. Each hotel guide includes a direct link to the property's official website; we avoid third-party booking sites and do not have affiliate booking agreements. Our revenue is generated solely through display advertisements (such as banners) on our site.

Do hotels pay to get featured in your guides?

No. Hotels cannot pay or elect to be included on our site.

Can I recommend a hotel for one of your guides?

Absolutely, we welcome suggestions from our readers. We're constantly on the lookout for new hotel openings and periodically reassess our listings. If you have a recommendation, please feel free to send it to us through our contact form.

Can I contribute articles to your site?

Thank you for your interest. At the moment, we are not seeking contributors for our guides, but this may change in the future. Keep an eye on our site for any updates regarding this.

I'm a hotel owner and would like to work with you.

We're always open to hearing from hotel owners. To get in touch, please use our contact form. Please be aware that it's not possible to purchase a listing or influence the rankings in any of our guides, as we maintain strict editorial integrity.
