Airbnb or Hotel?

Are Airbnb hosts really such a pain in the ass? I don't want problems when I bring a girl over or have to clean the entire thing.

        the cheapest airbnb you can find is usually like $1200 a month,the cheapest hotel I've stated in in the USA was $600 a month. Even Motel 6 is as low as $1200 a month, and cheap airbnbs usually have really annoying policies and a real lack of privacy

          Im in canada and the average decent airbnb that's not a run down dumpster in a ghetto goes for 500$ a day. 700-800$ and you're in luxury condo territory.

          Anything for 1200$ a month and you get a wienerroach infested apartment, host that will be spying on you and neighbors smoking crack and fighting at 3am.

          Hotels are much better deals. If having a kitchen is a must, i'd rather book an apart-hotel like Sonder where you can book a decent unit in a good location and have a fully stocked kitchen + proximity to groceries/restaurants if needed. The price is way cheaper than airbnb too lol.

      Seconded. AirBnb is more trouble than it's worth at this point. Also, varies by country. Hotels are consistent, especially if you stick to actual hotels. Aparthotels and small family owned places are a lottery, whereas with global chains you know what you are getting. Price difference isn't that large anymore.

    Most airbnb's don't want unlisted guests coming. Also most of have spy cams going on. Not to mention prices are now higher than in hotels. In some countries like Japan they require you to post an ID despite already having an airbnb account. All in all, airbnb fricking sucks, can't even dirty it without getting extra fined despite already paying for a cleaning fee.

    Go for an hotel they don't even care if you bring 10 000 women in.

            You are talking bullshit. I recently booked 4 hotels in the baltics and poland for average 60euro/night, nice hotels (not the cheapest shit), very central locations, 3/4 stars, all have breakfast included. Ok, I lied because I actually booked 5 hotels (not 4) but because the first 4 were so cheap I'm finishing that trip in a 5 star hotel with absolutely everything because I can. Also need to book 2 in Czech soon and it seems about the same price at a glance

              Agree. Airbnb is very hit or miss. I'll take a hotel anytime, it's usually the same price or less for where I go anyway.

              Security: possibility of cameras, shady neighbors, host has access anytime. Basically no security.
              Cleanliness: its not to the same standard as hotels. Everyone has stayed at dirty Airbnbs.
              Amenities: some hosts are cheap as frick. I stayed in a house for a large gathering where there were no towels or soap. The plates and silverware were plastic. For $2000 a night.
              Bait and switch: the Airbnb always looks better in the pictures. Location is never precise.
              Possibilities of fines. Hotel management is mostly reasonable, and if not, you can always fight it through your credit card. God help you if you have Airbnb arbitrate your dispute.

        Not sure about Eastern Europe, but in Latin America, most of the more affordable hotels do not list their prices online. Use Google Maps to find them - they will show up as dots, not prices. I hit the pavement, get the rates at every hotel, and then check in to the one I like the most. Most cheaper hotels in Latin America have strict guest policies, to avoid turning into a prostitutehouse.

    its alot more leg work to do AirBnB but Hotels just can't beat the monthly pricing for what you're getting.

      It’s generally the opposite. AirBnBs are more work to find but are generally cheaper even accounting for fees. The trouble is that the hotel is likely to be reasonably good, whereas AirBnBs are invariably bad.

      This. I'm "homeless" and live in Airbnbs and the few times I've had problems they were immediately resolved by the hosts. The company itself is moronic though, shilling their "rooms" bullshit and having shitty search functions.

    I've had extremely good luck with Airbnb in Europe. You get a ton more amenities and a lot more space with an Airbnb over a hotel. I want a fridge, a kitchen, a washer and a couch when I'm staying for multiple nights. There is a method to booking an Airbnb. You have to read the reviews. I only book an Airbnb if they offer a full refund in their policy. I would never book anywhere that doesn't have multiple reviews.

    God help your soul if you have to cancel an Airbnb and the host doesn't offer a full a refund in their policy. Airbnb moved the entire customer support system to India like 5 years ago. They are completely useless and have zero authority to resolve any problem.

    Airbnb has jumped the shark in the USA at least. I accidentally rented one from hotels.com of all places my last trip.

    Apartment would have been nice if the out of state rental agency actually cared about it. We found weed everywhere, our beds were unkempt with likely dirty sheets and our shower and bathroom had glass shards everywhere.

    I'm never staying in a short term rental again.

    Used to be cool. Was actually a host. Treated it like paid Couchsurfing and had some great experiences with guests.

    Used to be actually cheaper than hotels, too, when it had a personal touch.

    Then all the gays started buying up 3242039230 apartments in every city and turned shit into soul-less unregulated hotel rooms. You're FAR better off in a hotel nowadays.

    Exception is:
    >You have money to stay in their unique places like a lighthouse of some shit
    >You want to cook
    >There's a group of you needing some space

      It really takes a special type of mong to experience the total emptiness of peak COVID lockdowns and misattribute it to everything around being an unoccupied AirBNB.
      The exact same empty plaza shit happened in my city and it's not even particularly touristy. People didn't go out because there was nothing worth going out for, everything was shut down, doubly so in the old town which is usually the food and entertainment district.

    Varies.

    Can't really beat a good hotel, but at the same time I get pissed when I pay $90 and just want a good bed and shower, but I'm paying for a pool, gym and breakfast that I don't want. Even worse was a Wingate I recently stayed in for $110 a night and the walls were like paper.

    Old airbnb made sense. Someone had a spare room or was going away, so sublet their place so that they didn't pay rent to not even been there half the month. Now it's full of places made specifically for airbnb and they have no character and are often shitty.

    I'm almost 40. But I feel like I lived through a golden age of cheap travel, good airbnb, cheap ubers, netflix in it's prime and people that weren't offended by the slightest things.

    In the UK they're more expensive than hotels. Hotels you sometimes have trouble with reception when bringing a girl over. Then there's housekeeping constantly chewing on the doorknob. I've had some very nosy Airbnb hosts but most are absentee... I wanted to visit Inverness in Scotland - all the Airbnbs are 2-300 pounds a night! I could buy a nice 1 bedroom apartment there for 100k, I don't know how they actually charge so much.

    Last time I stayed at an AirBnB there was this massive patch of mold in the kitchen. When I requested the cleaning fee be waived (I didn’t have time to relocate) the host claimed I had brought prostitutes to the apartment in his review (he was referring to my girlfriend).

    It took forever to resolve. I one-starred him but his listing was still up months after when I checked. It’s a horrible platform, had nothing but issues everywhere I stayed.

    Ive stayed in at least 50 Airbnbs. In Europe, they were pretty much all great. I've never really had an issue. People let you drop your bags off early. I've never been charged any bullshit fees after the fact. In Prague, you can still find a giant 3 bedroom Airbnb with a full kitchen and a private jacuzzi tub for $150. That would get you a fricking closet of a hotel room.

    The worst thing that's ever happened in an Airbnb in Europe is that I could smell the neighbor smoking in the hallway. I've had way more problems booking hotels than with Airbnb.

    But recently, I stayed in Austin Texas. The host pulled a fast one and hit us with a $180 charge a week before our trip for "adding an extra person" even though we had cleared it with them months earlier. We couldn't cancel because they didn't offer a refund in their policy. We fought it and Airbnb customer service was useless. I knew the unit was going to have problems before we ever stepped foot in the door when I saw the ghetto neighborhood. Sure enough, we had flies and sludge in the bathroom. We complained to Airbnb, and got nothing.

    Honestly, all of this could have been avoided if I had just booked an Airbnb that offered a full refund in the policy. I would have seen the fee and cancelled.

    I’ve stayed at 100+ airbnbs in Europe, never once ever had a problem. I’ve even brought extra guests along to stay with me, host has seen and never had a problem, never charged more. I even once spilled a bottle of red fricking wine over a white sofa at one, no cleaning fee, no damage fee, nada.

    Way, way, way better than paying for hotels IMO.

    Personally, I prefer the comfy home feel where you can stay somewhere that feels authentic and not just a copy paste room.

      That's been my experience in Europe with AIrbnb too. I've stayed in plenty of hotels, and they are always completely forgettable. One of the most ridiculous countries in the world to get a hotel is Switzerland. A standard hotel room in Geneva is like 250 square feet. You barely have room for a suitcase in those rooms. And the hotel room was still like $150.
      We left Geneva and went to Zermatt and got an Airbnb that was the entire first floor of an amazing Chalet for $130/night. We had a giant jaccuzi tub, a balcony with a view, a full living room, a full kitchen, a storage area for our gear and a washer. A comparable hotel room would have been 5x the price. The dude actually gave us a free night because no one had booked for the next day.

      Another place where hotels are a terrible deal is France. Yea, you can pay 600 a night and get a great room, but anything less than 200 in France is going to be a fricking dump. Airbnb all day in France, especially in the south.

    >I don't want problems when I bring a girl over or have to clean the entire thing.
    but you will. that cleaning fee? thats a fee for YOU to have the privilege of cleaning the house. not the host.

    didnt go through with it, but i remember one house in nags head we almost booked
    >$400 cleaning fee
    >before checkout, dishes need to be done, floors mopped/vacuumed, trash taken out. bed linen laundered.
    but the cleaning fee is somehow mandatory?
    also
    >no guests w/o host approval.
    >overnight guest extra $100
    >only 1 vehicle allowed.

    im sure we were looking at the top-tier israeli of hosts, but how can anyone at any point in their life look at that and think "yup. this is reasonable and a great value"
    im glad municipalities have started passing laws prohibiting airbnb shit.

    I always use hotels. They're just overall more reputable, have rewards programs/perks for members, may include breakfast for no additional/minor charge, plenty of on-site amenities, daily housecleaning or even on-demand, and so on.
