Write a review or describe a place

On Google Maps, you can write reviews for places you’ve visited. Your reviews are public, so anyone can see what you write. You can’t add an anonymous review. 

Note: Google has a zero tolerance policy for fake reviews. We reserve the right to take down any review that we deem to be fake or which doesn’t comply with our user content and conduct policies.

Here are some other things that others will be able to see:

  • Your name that appears on your About me page
  • Other reviews you’ve written on Google Maps
  • Photos you’ve added to Google Maps

You can also tell us info about a place. For example, you can tell us if a place is quiet, lively, or romantic.

Tip: If you like adding place information or writing reviews, join the Local Guides community. By contributing to Google Maps, you can earn points and get a special badge next to your reviews. For more info and answers to your other questions, check out the Local Guides forum.
