Tips and tricks from the Airbnb Host Community

Written by City Relay

Sometimes hosts can be really creative and with a simple idea, they can improve their flat offering into a memorable stay for guests. Most of the time inspiration for these ideas comes from the experience hosts have with previous guests. So, if you want to improve your Airbnb but don’t know how to do it, read this article. We’ve gathered many great ideas from the Airbnb host community.

Share your local culture

One of the biggest pleasures for travellers is to immerse themselves in the local culture and environment, from flavours to the main attractions in a city.

If you have an Airbnb in London, you can provide a real English breakfast for your guests to offer a typical British experience. In addition, the style of your flat can reflect the culture. If you don’t know which decorations you want for your London Airbnb, why not buy some British-style furniture?

“Unusual” is irresistible

People always loved unusual ideas, because they get to experience new things. For example, the following Airbnb host provides some Airbnb services to guests, but one of them is really intriguing. One year ago Giorgio started a book exchange with his guests. Every time a guest comes, the host gives a book in English, French, German, etc. as a gift. Most of the time, guests give him back another book which led to the creation of a rich multilingual library for future clients.

Elementary amenities can make a big change

Some elementary amenities can make the difference between a bad and a good stay.
First aid kits, computer adaptors, hair dryers, etc. are small things that make a big impact. These amenities are useful but usually, for some reason, guests forget to take them. You’re doing a favour by providing this service to guests!

Kindness is the best amenity ever

When you express your love for your host activity through little acts, you are leaving a mark on the guest’s stay. A personalised welcome message, and some homemade cookies near the coffee machine or a teapot, if you are in London – unleash your imagination!
