Small business travelers have been embracing Airbnbs as an alternative to hotels and San Francisco is the top destination for Airbnb business travel bookings. The first time I visited San Francisco for work I stayed in a shared studio loft to beat my budget. But it’s not always about saving money or scrimping on experience.
Not only can Airbnb offer lower prices than many hotels in the city, they can also offer amenities like free wifi, a well-stocked kitchen, street parking and in-unit laundry. Right now, our travel algorithm sets the budget at $292/night for a weeklong stay in March. Here are 5 Airbnbs in San Francisco that come in under budget.
