The online accommodation rating platform sent incognito inspectors across the globe. They stayed at various properties and evaluated them on up to 900 standards.  

From the data gathered during the evaluation process, the website has selected 41 hotels across 17 countries. The winners achieved perfect scores on guest room and bathroom standards related to elements of luxury and guest comfort and convenience. They also met core standards for cleanliness and maintenance.

The list goes beyond how the rooms look

The World’s Best Hotel Rooms list features properties with rooms and bathrooms that are reportedly not only beautiful, but exceptionally comfortable, functional and “elegantly appointed with special touches such as high-quality linens, an array of luxurious bath amenities and well-designed technology,” the Travel Guide says.
