Places to Stay

Find a locally owned, women-friendly place to stay here

How this works: This is a free to use, in service to women seeking recommended accommodations.To do this, we need your help. Share your recommendations. Invite other women to participate. Help us build this into a trusted place to find and share women-friendly places to stay around the world.

1. To find a place to stay, use the bar on the left to search by city, state/province or country. You will need to select the country first before seeing the available cities. If the city isn’t listed that means it hasn’t been populated yet, so we need your recommendations! The more we have the better this is!

2. To add a recommended accommodation, use the green button below. To submit a place to stay, you must agree that it is not your own or one you have a financial interest in. All listings must be available on a third-party booking platform (eg Airbnb,, TripAdvisor, Trusted Housesitters, etc) so that women can review the details, including safety and accessibility information. Private or residential listings are not accepted. All listings will be reviewed and ownership checked prior to publishing the listing. Our goal is to have new listings up within 72 hours, assuming all information has been provided on the form.

3. Sponsored listings: Those listings with a pink background are paid listings from our partners, who have undergone a verification process and help us offer this service at no charge to you. Advertisers are invited to join our directory here.

Disclaimer: This is provided as a service to women. We are not involved in the booking process, nor do we accept responsibility for any issues that may arise. We welcome your feedback at [email protected].

I stayed in Belgravia—such a calm and lovely area—near The Thomas Cubit Pub and Alfred Tennyson (both highly recommend) and near Peggy Porschen pastry shop (tiny touristy expensive for nothing)

Strand Palace UK - Recommended Accommodations

Strand Palace

Submitted by: Michelle

A large hotel where I stayed the last time is the Strand Palace, very near Covent Garden Market and very near the Tube station. Not as quaint as others but way more practical (for a short stay.)

Catalonia Born Hotel

I love Barcelona, it’s a great place for solo travelers. I spent a lot of time in the Born area. A nice hotel just west of the Arc de Triumph Newer Hotel is the Catalonia Born Hotel.

This low-season stay in an adorable waterfront cottage in Leamington, Ontario was cheaper than hotels in Detroit and next door to Point Pelee National Park.
