Mixed review

We used Airbnb to rent two properties for a road trip. The first property was great and the host outstanding, nothing but a positive experience.

We had booked a flat in Barcelona last August and paid $600 for five nights. Before the Barcelona leg of our trip, we stayed in another apartment (also booked through Airbnb) in Paris for five nights, which worked out well. Prior to flying to Europe, I had communicated with the host of our apartment in […]
