Write reviews and add ratings of places

On Google Maps, you can write reviews for places that you’ve visited. You can also leave info about a place, like if it’s quiet, lively or romantic. These reviews and opinions are voluntary. We don’t pay reviewers for adding them to Google Maps.

What others will see

All reviews are public, so anyone can see what you write. You can’t add an anonymous review.

Here's some more info that others will see:

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

Tip: If you’re a Local Guide, you can get points by adding reviews and ratings to Google Maps.

Notes

  • Reviews are automatically processed to find inappropriate content (such as obscene, offensive or meaningless language). They’re also automatically scanned for spam (like messages sent by bots or repeated content posted multiple times or from multiple accounts).
  • Google has no tolerance for fake reviews. We may take down reviews that are flagged as fake or in violation of Google's review policies. We also do so to comply with a legal obligation.
  1. On your Android phone or tablet, open the Google Maps app Maps.
  2. Search for a place or tap it on the map.
  3. At the bottom, tap the place name or address.
  4. At the top, tap Reviews.
  5. Scroll down until you see five empty stars.
  6. Tap the stars to score the place. You can also write a review.

Your review will be visible in Google Maps until you take it down. After your review is published, you can edit what you wrote, or change the rating and pictures that you included.
