Hotel vs Airbnb: Which One is a Better Accommodation?

There’s some mixed opinion about which one is better for accommodation: hotel vs Airbnb. I know some of my friends who would strongly recommend Airbnb for many reasons. Some even make their side income as the landlord to rent their property through the platform.

I know, some of you might wonder where I have been all the time that I never used the platform before as I’ve traveled. However, despite creating my account in the platform a long time ago, my first experience staying at Airbnb was on the trip to Brunei.

In Brunei, I stayed at EZ Lodgings, located around 15 minutes drive from the city center in Bandar Seri Begawan. For this, I got recommended by Suzie ever since we started talking about my plan to visit her in Brunei.
