Once you start staying in Airbnbs, it’s hard to revert back to hotels. You could be staying at the Marriott or you could be staying in a mini castle with no neighbors for half the cost and a million Instagram photo opportunities. Easy choice. From the interior decor, the view, to the hosts themselves, each Airbnb has its own story and you could be living in it.
