With its home-like amenities and cost-effective pricing, it’s no surprise that Airbnbs have become a popular choice for work travelers. However, as a host, it’s important to cater to the specific needs of business guests in order to provide them with a comfortable and productive stay.

The Importance of Creating a Productive Work Environment

As a business traveler, productivity is key. Whether your guests are attending a conference or working remotely, they need a space that allows them to focus and get their work done efficiently. By equipping your Airbnb with the right amenities and equipment, you can create a comfortable and productive work environment for your guests.

1. High-Speed Wi-Fi and Work Desk

First and foremost, a strong and reliable Wi-Fi connection is essential for business travelers. Make sure to have high-speed internet in your Airbnb and display the network name and password where they can easily see it. Additionally, having a designated work desk with a comfortable chair and proper lighting can greatly enhance your guests’ productivity.

2. Printer and Office Supplies

Having access to a printer and basic office supplies can be a game-changer for work travelers. They may need to print out important documents or have a last-minute need for pens and paper. By providing these amenities, you not only save your guests time and hassle, making their stay more convenient and enjoyable, but you offer something many other hosts don’t, which will put your listing above the competition.

Comfortable and Relaxing Accommodations

After a long day of work, your guests will appreciate a comfortable and relaxing space to unwind in. Here are the main things you’ll want to have:

1. Comfy Bed and Quality Bedding

A good night’s sleep is crucial for business travelers, and a comfortable bed can make all the difference. Make sure to invest in a high-quality mattress and provide your guests with soft, clean bedding. This will not only ensure their comfort but also contribute to a positive review.

A common thing that is over looked are blind out curtains. Travelers may be coming from overseas and experiencing jet lag so having blind out curtains to ensure they have a good sleep is something they will definitely appreciate and will ensure you don’t get “points take off” in your review for not having them.

2. Cozy Living Space and Entertainment

Having a cozy living space with comfortable seating and a TV can help your guests relax and recharge after a busy day of work. Consider providing streaming services like Netflix or Hulu for their entertainment. This will make your Airbnb feel more like a home away from home for your guests.

Convenient Location and Amenities

When choosing an Airbnb for a work trip, location and amenities are key factors for business travelers. By considering these factors and catering to their needs, you can attract more work guests and increase your bookings.

1. Proximity to Business Centers and Transportation

Ideally, your Airbnb should be located near business centers or easily accessible by public transportation. This will save your guests time and make their work trip more efficient. Make sure to highlight your Airbnb’s proximity to these locations in your listing.

2. On-Site Amenities

In addition to the amenities within your Airbnb, having on-site amenities like a gym or pool can be a major selling point for work travelers. It allows them to maintain their routine and stay productive even while traveling. If your Airbnb doesn’t have these amenities, consider partnering with nearby facilities to offer your guests discounted rates.
