We love hotels, and the hospitality they provide won’t be replaced by Airbnb anytime soon. But Airbnb has other benefits: namely, home-like spaces in neighbourhoods where hotels don’t exist. When researching an Airbnb, first select a neighbourhood that’s conducive to nightlife, work, or whatever you’re seeking. Next, check the reviews — the more, the better. Finally, to ensure it’s legit, reverse Google image search the photos in your listing to ensure you’re not being served up falsified photos. If everything checks out, bon voyage.
