One more confusing thing in the listings

I opened a private window and checked on our listing. I hadn’t noticed before that they list three things under the description. Each listing had 3 items - some of the other items were Internet, TV, Heating,and Air Conditioning.


If I could have chosen my own descriptors I would not have emphasized shampoo- seems pretty lame as an amenity to be called out. Glad they didn’t put heating or air conditioning as something special - that should be a given in this climate!

Is this something they are doing on all listings/areas? Is it on your listings also?

Mine (and almost everyone else’s on the same page) says “free parking.” Not useful here in El Paso where free parking is available in 99% of the listings.

Except when it is the decision-maker. In places like San Francisco, it is gold. In El Paso? Not so much. It would be good if they were more place-aware, wouldn’t it?


Certainly. I wonder how many places have shampoo as the deciding factor? LOL.


@KKC. That is, in fact, my only criteria for selecting a place to stay. ::tongue in cheek::


But seriously, I don’t see this in my city when I do an anonymous search. Is this on the search results page or the detail page?

I was looking at the results page.

I couldn’t find the free parking when I was searching in downtown Toronto. Critical amenity.

I’m going to edit my post to clear up the confusion.

Here is a randomly selected listing on a full page of results:

Interesting. OP’s results show three amenities. Your results show 1. My results show nothing. The little AirBNB gnomes are still at work.

Just an FYI: In Explorer I was getting some odd views & functions. The Customer Support team at Airbnb told me their website was optimized to work best with Chrome.

Does anyone know what the color coding in the “private room…” headline means? I just noticed it in @KKC 's screen grab… they all seem to be a different color.

I wondered the same thing…
