Airbnb Launches Neighborhoods
Ottway Ducard stashed this in startups
Stashed in: Airbnb
"The new product allows users to find the experiences they want based on their interests and the particular parts of a city that they want to stay in. Today, it’s coming online with more than 300 neighborhoods in seven cities."
So... stay based on what you're interested in?
Partly, but I think more "where the hell in the city am I staying?" discovery is a huge problem on airbnb because they love their design focus, to the exclusion of having good search ability. breaking things down by neighborhood make it easy to find places in a specific city near something you're interest too, as opposed to more generic criteria like price, beauty, how many friends you know who know them etc.
