Of course yes, there are so many reasons you should opt for Airbnb instead of hotels. One of such reasons is that you get enjoy more space, cook what you want & other amenities. Personally I love to opt for Airbnb because I get to enjoy a home away from home feel. I get to cook my own food. This is great more so, during this pandemic. You can also read my post on other hotel alternatives that are cheap for your travel. I have stayed in some Airbnb in Lagos, Jade’s court apartment is my best Airbnb in Lagos Nigeria I would recommend.
How to book Airbnb?
You can book for an Airbnb in several ways. One of such ways is to book directly from Airbnb website. Their site is very easy to use. You can book a short stay up to 30days or more on this website.
All you need to do is to search for apartment rentals around the place you want to stay. However, if you are in Lagos, I would recommend Jade court apartment, Osbourne.
Tips to before you book Airbnb short stay
Unlike hotels, Airbnb are listed homes or apartment you can rent for your travel. I love this option because you can choose an entire apartment ( that take in as many guest, this is usually stated by the host) or shared homes.
My first tip is to read reviews of other lodgers that stayed on the home you want. This tip also applies to any form of online shopping. You need to read other people’s feedback to actually know if this property is as described.
I usually shy away from homes with no reviews. The one time I gave one of them a chance, I regretted it. So, I would recommend you go for a rooms with great reviews as a first timer. Also, ensure you liaise with the host clarify on his listing. I booked a private room with no reviews recently. On the last minute, after chatting with host, I discovered that it was not private afterall.
So, talk to the prospect host before booking your stay. You can also click here to read my other post on tips to book Airbnb as a first timer.
