Little pro’s and con’s list (more pro’s to be honest) of why I personally prefer Airbnb over hotels.
I know, I know…hotels have better guarantees and you don’t need to clean your room before checking out (First Hotel Pro), but let’s be honest – hotels do not have souls and they are pretty impersonal and this is First Hotel Con. I like seeing true colors of people and places all the time, and also when I’m on vacation. I love doing not-touristy things when I travel and my vacation motto is “When in Rome, do as the Romans do”.
My very first Airbnb experience was in Paris. I was looking for an apartment that would have this French and especially Parisian character. After hours spent on the website looking for the combo of perfect location, boho artistic chic interior, nice view, and affordable price, lucky me — I found it.
So, let’s continue with a little mixture of Airbnb and Hotels pro’s and con’s.
