We remained in Modena, Italy, as part of our honeymoon, and picked to stick with a “Superhost.”

Airbnb chooses “Superhosts” based upon simply 4 requirements: They require to have actually had at least 10 individuals remain in their location over the previous year, they require a 4.8 ranking or greater from a minimum of 50% of individuals who remain in their location, they require absolutely no cancellations over the in 2015, and they require to react to 90% of brand-new messages within 24 hours.

To put it simply, being a Superhost does not speak with the quality of the apartment or condo. Our Modena apartment or condo was quickly our least preferred lodging throughout our honeymoon: It was more flights of stairs than promoted, the apartment or condo wasn’t spick-and-span, had no soap, hair shampoo, or cleansing tools like paper towels, and the apartment or condo smelled like sulfur sometimes (more on that later).
