About

Mapplr is a travel website that features cool boutique hotels and travel guides worldwide. Based in Europe and Asia, we focus on hotels with character and style. Two years ago, we began covering luxury hotels and resorts in emerging markets (China, India, Brazil, Russia, Southeast Asia).

Our readers are primarily urban, style-conscious people who are looking for unique places to stay. Our editors carefully screen locations and list only a handful of selected hotels in a city, so you are not overwhelmed by too much information. Mapplr also publishes travel guides on selected destinations, restaurant reviews and updates on air and rail travel, special deals and more.

Esme Vos is the founder of Mapplr. She is a seasoned traveler who has visited more than 41 countries. Esme was also  the co-founder of Weekendhotel.nl and Weekendhotel.be, the premier boutique hotel and luxury B&B sites in the Netherlands and Belgium.
