On average, staying at an Airbnb is more affordable than staying at a hotel, but even though that’s average, it’s not always true for every destination.
Compare the Market analyzed the average costs of hotel rooms compared to the average costs of Airbnbs in 52 major destinations around the world to reveal where it might make more sense to book a hotel room.
The brand found the top destination where travelers save if they book a hotel room versus an Airbnb is Santa Cruz, California. There, on average, travelers who book a hotel room save just less than $200 as compared to the cost of the average Airbnb. The second-place destination results in a much smaller savings, though the savings are still notable. Travelers to Mallorca, Spain, can save $75 by booking a hotel room over an Airbnb, on average.
Other destinations in the Top 10, where it makes more sense to book a hotel room than an Airbnb, financially, include Venice, Italy; San Diego, California; San Jose, California; Austin, Texas; Naples, Italy; Berlin, Germany; Boston, Massachusetts; and Oakland, California.
