Air BnB, a bit of a let down

Jump to last reply

I have only used this booking site three times so far and only one ad. matched the actual accommodation. The first time I used it there were issues with faulty electrical cords, textiles like towels only fit for the rag bag and cleanliness. The photos posted did not show any of these things so overall it looked quite acceptable. The last place I used said that it had a fully equipped kitchen, this was far from the truth and the photo only showed a bench top with a microwave but no stove. I should have known. The bathroom was not photographed and was a wet floor bathroom, I didn't mind this but it should have been stated in the ad. The TV reception was terrible and for the area should have been corrected. I'm beginning to think that making money is the first priority for some of these Air BnB owners and not offering their guests a good enough experience. Does anyone from Air BnB actually visit these premises? Or do they accept their ads on trust.
