Hotels vs. vacation rentals … which one do you prefer?

In the past few years, I’ve found myself more and more staying at vacation apartments instead of hotels – they are just much more comfortable to work in, and I love being able to cook. I used to spend hours comparing apartments and prices on websites like Airbnb, Wimdu, Roomorama, Homeway, VRBO… But here’s a tip for you: there is a website, Meshtrip.com that compares the prices of all available apartments across all major apartment rental websites for you! The best thing: they are all instantly bookable, which means you don’t have to request a room/ apartment first and hope that the owner accepts your request.

When I travel alone, I sometimes book only a room within an apartment instead of the entire apartment (that’s all I need, plus kitchen use) and the apartment in the pictures is a place in Venice that I found on Meshtrip – it’s 35 Euros a night! Now if you are familiar with hotel prices in Venice, you’ll know that this was an absolute steal :)

I've stayed in the centre of Paris for 30 Euro a night though AirBnb. Nothing beats rentals! ❤️

Oh, and it was a whole apartment. Tiny, of course 🤣

I like rentals when with a group or family but will usually choose hotel when traveling alone, love the luxury!

Rachel agreed! When alone, there's no need for an apartment.
