      im a SighSeetard but reacted to this when i was watching the podcast. i find it insane that rich people stay at airbnbs but why is it so common? it seems so insane when they can afford 5-star hotels that arent much more expensive, what is the deal with staying at airbnbs?

      No anti-airbnb but even /ourguy/ from tv explains why it's a big risk vs a safe and secure hotel

        >muh sprinklers and carbon dioxide detectors.
        Yeah like people have those in their home in 80% of the world.

        As a guest there is literally no downside to using airbnb, specially outside of the US where you get a nice full apartment and can live like a decent human for less than $1k a month.

      every single airbnb experience I have had has been really good. there was one time my airbnb was in a somewhat shitty neighborhood of miami but the host actually did a lot to make the experience a good one, so I can't complain that much about it

      the ~~*hotels*~~ have started an anti airbnb social media campaign

      There are shills on this board running a campaign against accommodations that aren't hotel chains.
      You can easily attract them by making threads about airbnbs, hostels or camping.
      I hope they're at least paid well because they sure as hell don't do a good job.

      Because anyone can rent out their house for Airbnb and when they get their first beautiful hot 20 year old tenant, they might get the idea to install a camera in the toilet and record the girls. If it has happened in hotels, why do people not think it can happen at some creepy ass dude's airbnb? Why the FRICK would you stay at an airbnb when you can stay at a hotel? I just dont understand it. What is the argument? Why do you gays prefer airbnb?

    Of course you don't leave valuables unattended in your rental, that is common sense for travelers. And if you don't leave valuables strewn around your room, what does "trust" have to do with it? Every hotel room can be opened by a housekeeper who is paid far less than you like to think, how secure is that?

    is it that hard to scan your room for cameras? it's kinda fun even, if you find one you can cover it up then steal it when you leave, what's he gonna do, complain about it?

      Here's what I want to ask this thread: Do these "hidden camera finders" actually work? I don't just mean this specific one, but there are many of various shapes, sizes, and designs.

    I was under the impression that Airbnb was meant for renting entire houses or apartments. As a solo traveler, neither of these things are what I need.

    I don't need a house because I'm not traveling in a group.
    An apartment makes more sense, but the biggest difference between an apartment and a hotel is that an apartment has a kitchen and a bigger bathroom. I don't cook on vacations, and I only need a bathroom to SSS (Shit, Shower, Shave), so the advantages of an apartment are kind of useless to me.

    >serious people at Airbnb
    I’m serious people. I don’t use Airbnb anymore, because of one really bad host experience that was handled badly by their “customer service,” but before I left the site I used them all the time. I still rent apartments more often than I get hotel rooms.

    Reasons why are simple. I mostly travel with my family of four. Multiple bedrooms, bathrooms, a kitchen, and a space to sit in without a bed in it are things I value and get use out of. Hotel suites or adjacent rooms, which we also use, rarely satisfy.

    It’s nothing to do with saving money, although I think we do usually spend less on apartments than we would on the equivalent space in a hotel. It’s about space.

      Why do you prioritize space of the house on your vacation? Do you stay indoors that much? When you're traveling, you tend to be on-foot, rather than in-house? Or am I missing something?

        When traveling with a wife and kids, it's a little different. You can't be as intentional as you can by yourself. We don't want to anger our children while they're experiencing lots of stress in a foreign place, so we don't force them to do anything they really don't want. There is plenty of time on the couch, looking at social media, tiktok, etc on vacation because for us, the trips are about integrating into the local culture, not checking off things from a list of sites to see or things to do just to feel like we "traveled".

    I do prefer hotels. But the only problem I faced when staying in airbnb's was the lack of someone to facilitate my experience. As I am young it was not a big deal. Paid less for good 2/3 bedroom flats/penthouses than I would for a small suite at a 5 star hotel, sometimes even in a 4 star. And all were very well kept, with appliances and good looking furniture. All my experiences have been in europe though. Also got properties with terraces that allowed smoking, which is a good thing for me as an addicted. If I had the money I would stay in a hotel though. But can't see myself if I had a family paying 500 usd/night/suite instead of getting a 3 bedroom airbnb flat for 500 usd/night. Sure, if I was rich would be grateful to pay 10k/night for a signature suite in great hotels.

    One major concern I have with Airbnb is that the owner can cancel whenever he pleases. From a property rights perspective, that's based, but from a hospitality perspective, it's nightmarish.

    >plan a trip months in advance
    >book a hotel
    >arrive at hotel
    >check in

    >plan a trip months in advance
    >book an Airbnb
    >think nothing of it for a while
    >be really close to date of arrival, or worse, the actual date of arrival
    >"Your reservation was cancelled"
    >have to haul ass looking for another place to stay, prices potentially being higher because it's so last-minute
    I know that Airbnb can penalize hosts for doing this, but it's still an inconvenience to the guest.
