Why is unfare , because is using one hotel room rates to compare and promote sales of houses and apartments , There are big differences to be taught to every guest. One hotel room has one bathroom just one bed , if you offer a house , you have more areas ready for the guest, dinning room , Kitchem , Garage, Garden, living room , more than one bathroom, washer , dryer , you are obligated to have tableware , alarm, cable tv, hair dryer, etc like a a 4-5 stars hotel ; big difference for cleaning purpose, any house has a lot more work to be done than a single room . I have been with Airbnb since two years ago, Our house has 3 bedroms 2 bathhrooms , living room /sofa-bed , dinning room, kitchem , garage. In the middle of down town for $60 only , Airbnb is recomending $50 or less, these meas that for 5 guest , each guest is $10 per night is receivieng all of the above and allways asking more and more, being picky and demanding as if they were in a $120-180/night hotel.
I know Airbnb needs sales ,also, we need to have customers to pay taxes and bills , but Airbnb needs to stop , educate and punish sometimes regular guests. Right now I fill squizzed by every guest and Airbnb as well, I am really thinking to quit Airbnb!! What do you think?
Here in CR the site is always showing the smart price , and when you look into comparison tool, are shown apts and hosues aplling the smart price which is much lower ,also I have checked pricing with local hotels , it si exactly the same as smart price.
you can turn off "smart prices" and set the price by yourself. Smart pricing is just for fools.
Ignore any recommendations, they are ridiculous.
My regular price is 50€ but for the experiment, I lowered the price for 1 particular day to 10€ just to see what Airbnb will recommend. And they recommended 6€! For the entire summer! :D We all know that the lowest price we can set is 10€ so even if I want to I can't set it so low :D :D :D
