Hotels vs AirBnB: everything you need to know (and which wins)

Summer holidays are: do I choose a hotel room or rent an Airbnb?

There is obviously no objective answer to the question: “Is a hotel room or an Airbnb better?”. What matters is everyone’s preference, their own habits and the way they prefer to travel. Many travellers, especially young ones, prefer an Airbnb, but just as many, looking for a real holiday with the associated comforts, prefer to opt for a hotel. During your stay in a hotel, there are certainly some not inconsiderable benefits that we can highlight: the care, cleanliness and tidiness that you would not have in a Airbnb and which you should – during your holiday – take care of yourself.

A tourist’s choice today is increasingly conscious. According to Alessandro Nucara, director general of Federalberghi, this is its main characteristic. An average of 20 different travel portals are consulted before planning a holiday. The other aspect that characterises tourists today is the focus on safety and this is only guaranteed with certainty in regular establishments, which are in the vast majority hotels.

Holidays at a hotel are a real relax

Let’s take a step-by-step approach and explain why, compared to an Airbnb, hotel holidays are the best option if what you’re looking for is a place where you can feel calm and relaxed – and you really need that after all this time spent not travelling.

In many circumstances, the services and hospitality offered by host accommodation are not comparable to what we are sure to get when we book our holidays at a hotel.

Let’s go through all the reasons why choosing a hotel for your holiday is the best option.

Holidays at a hotel are a real relax

Let’s take a step-by-step approach and explain why, compared to an Airbnb, hotel holidays are the best option if what you’re looking for is a place where you can feel calm and relaxed – and you really need that after all this time spent not travelling.

In many circumstances, the services and hospitality offered by host accommodation are not comparable to what we are sure to get when we book our holidays at a hotel.

Let’s go through all the reasons why choosing a hotel for your holiday is the best option.

Reception

First of all, the availability of a person who is completely dedicated to arrivals at any time of the day, in other words a receptionist: no matter what time or time of day you have to arrive, there will always be someone there to welcome you.

But being greeted on arrival is not the only plus. “The hotel is an organisational machine in which people work with people”: this phrase by Alessandro Nucara sums up one of the special features of a hotel stay. The customer is never alone, there is always someone there to support him and make him feel at ease and with all the necessary comforts.

Safety and hygiene

Not to mention safety and hygiene, which are even more important today. Hotels are obliged to guarantee their guests high safety standards. Is there any kind of control in Airbnb? No, because the property registration process is all done online, whereas hotels are subject to strict inspections.

Furthermore, how many times has it happened to us that having booked an Airbnb, perhaps well in advance, at short notice our reservation was cancelled and we were left without accommodation?  Well, with a hotel stay you can say goodbye to this additional worry. Your hotel reservation is always guaranteed and secured. You can be sure that when you book a hotel, everything you see on the website is what you will be offered, will be the service you will receive and will be able to complain about if it is not.

Many services for a unique experience

Not to mention the diversification of services it offers. The hotel offers a more protected and welcoming environment, where you can feel at home and cuddle.  Depending on the hotel chosen, you can find everything from a disco to sports fields, a spa area, a swimming pool, tours and organized trips. It is not just a place to sleep, but a unique and continuous experience.

Don’t think about “What do I eat today?”

No less important is the board service that the hotel offers. If in fact in an Airbnb stay you have to think about what and where to eat, having an economic expense independent of the accommodation, in a hotel there is a restaurant completely dedicated to this service and attentive to all your dietary needs, such as possible allergies and intolerances.

What about breakfast? How many times have you been enchanted by a fabulous buffet or a dream breakfast? Sweet, savoury, coffee, tea, fresh juices… You can’t compare it to cappuccino or brioche in a bar, or, even worse, having to get up and make it yourself! Are you on holiday or not?

The hotel ensures that your holiday is spent without the worries and cares that we usually have in our everyday lives, and ensures that the quality of your holiday is superior and can be described as such.

A holiday at Hotel Posta Moltrasio

After illustrating the immediately recognizable advantages of a hotel holiday compared to a BnB holiday, let’s talk about our Hotel Posta for those readers who don’t know it yet. The Hotel Posta, located in Moltrasio and easily reachable in 5 minutes by car from Como, is an excellent solution if you want to treat yourself to a stay of tranquillity and relax.

Our Restaurant La Veranda, a cosy, warm and informal environment, will delight your palate with a varied menu of traditional Italian dishes and those of our Lake. At our Cafe Bellini you can stop by for a break, excellent desserts – our new pastry chef Elisa is fantastic -, an aperitif or a Neapolitan-style pizza that will leave you speechless.

But will we find qualified staff at Hotel Posta? The answer is more than positive. The staff at Hotel Posta are loved by all its guests for their attention to every need. The service on the floors and in the rooms is always punctual, precise and tidy and the management of the whole is efficient. Armando and all the staff will make you feel part of the family, giving you all the necessary attention and many tips on how to spend your stay on Lake Como.

 Still undecided if it is better to stay in a hotel room or in an Airbnb? If I were you, I wouldn’t have any doubts.
