One of the reasons people prefer to stay at somebody’s house versus in a hotel is the local recommendations that many hosts provide. Airbnb has recognized this and enable hosts to provide an Airbnb guidebook to their guests within the Airbnb platform. This is a great opportunity to share your local knowledge with potential guests.

Setting up your Airbnb guidebook

Once you have selected the establishment that you’d like to add, you can choose a category. If you really want to make your Airbnb guidebook awesome, you can add a short description of why you like the place. This will really help your guests decide where to go for coffee, lunch and dinner and also will make them excited to visit your neighborhood.

Pro-tip: You can easily print a copy of your guidebook to provide to your guests during their stay.
