Across the regions of the world that we feature there is no standardised classification and grading of hotels, therefore we have used the hotel’s own rating if an official rating is not available. It is important to note that this is not an exact science and standards can vary quite dramatically from one country to another. However, we do believe that it will serve as a useful indicator.
