It would be interesting to hear what factors are the most important to members of this forum (since we’re all hosts ourselves).
The most important factors for me are:
The most important factor is the location; I’m always looking for accommodation near the main streets / attractions if I’m a tourist or near the event / company if I’m on business travel. If I’m in a place for a very short time, like one day or one night, I’m looking for accommodation near the central station or other hub or near the airport.
Fast and reliable WIFI. I always need to be available and must be able to work from anywhere, so fast WIFI is a must have.
**Number of bedrooms and apartment lay out**. If I'm travelling with friends or family, I'm always checking the number of bedrooms and the lay out of the apartment. Separate bedrooms for everyone is important and I don't want to walk through someones bedroom to go to the toilet. I'm surprised so few listings on Airbnb have a lay out display.
View and balcony. If I find a listing covering point one, two and three, I prefer to have a nice view and preferably a balcony
I like **modern apartments with a high standard**, but can also stay more simple if the location is right and the other points above are covered.
Not important factors:
Breakfast / kitchen - not important. I prefer to buy food at nearby restaurants / cafes / grocery stores.
