JP Moser and his wife Isabel, after having traveled extensively and frequently throughout Europe, for many years, simply for pleasure, realized that people travelling to Western Europe needed a reliable source of information in regards to places where to stay, so they decided to do a hotel guide of particular importance, with only exquisite properties where everyone dreams to stay.

In November, 1996, Mr. & Mrs. Moser left Strasbourg, France and traveled by car, visiting places one by one in order to write this guide. They traveled non-stop for almost three years, visiting and staying at literally hundreds of hotels, chateaux and other types of lodging establishments, selecting only the best to be included in The JP Moser Hotel & Chateau Guide. The selection criteria was not to select only "chic and expensive", but above all, the places selected had to be "good" and recommendable, regardless of star ranking, although stars usually do and should be related to quality of service and standards.

The JP Moser Hotel & Chateau Guide was published on the web for the first time in 2001, and included all the properties that Mr. & Mrs. Moser had selected from their initial trip. Since then, hundreds of properties have been added, always following the same criteria. The Moser's must inspect the establishment first before it can be featured in The JP Moser Guide. This guarantees to the thousands of people who browse daily through that the properties featured represent an unbiased opinion of Mr.   Mrs. Moser, because no one can pay to be included in our Guide. Furthermore, if at any time the Moser's have reason to believe a place recommended by them, has come down, it is removed immediately from the Web.

When you send a request for a reservation through this website, it will go directly to the property and you will receive a reply written by a live person with all the details of what is available. Someone who can answer all your questions, even assist you with other reservations such as restaurants, events and more!

In many cases the property will give you a special discount, free upgrade and/ or a gift, if you mention on the request that you saw the establishment in The JP Moser Hotel & Chateau Guide.
