But choosing the right hotel can be a frustrating and time consuming process. Many of us turn to reviews from friends and family, as well as complete strangers on TripAdvisor, to help us choose the right hotel for us.

To make choosing a hotel even easier, TripAdvisor has rated these hotels as the top ten hotels in the world for 2023, based on community review scores over the past twelve months.

Here is the full list:

Rambagh Palace, Jaipur, India

Now a 5-star hotel, the Rambagh Palace was once the official residence of Maharajah Sawai Man Singh II.

The building was originally built in 1835. The rooms are palatial because this hotel was really a palace.
