HouseTrip was great. They had a wide selection of properties, all of which seemed to have gracious and helpful landlords that love their city (Lisbon, in this case) and what it has to offer visitors. Communication was easy, payment arrangements a breeze, and it all went off without any more effort or concerns than booking a hotel. If you want to experience a city as the locals do, and enjoy the conveniences of wi-fi, laundry and space that are seldom included or easy to come by with hotels, you'd be hard pressed to find a better option than HouseTrip.
Using of Housetrip can realy help a people like me, which are interest in traveling abroad. Thank you very much Housetrip for the support, everything we excellent.
Great website, really easy to use and with regular and useful communication
They hold the money until after check in, so you can feel secure that your investment in your rental is safe.
J'ai effectué beaucoup de réservations sur ce site, et n'avais jusqu'alors
pas eu à m'en plaindre.
Mais je trouve le système de notation totalement injuste.
Dans mon cas, j'ai du faire une annulation de dernière
minute à la demande de housestrip car le locataire devant venir (pour une
seule nuit) n'acceptait pas que son chèque de caution lui soit rendu un
jour plus tard.
(n'étant moi même pas sur place pour lui restituer, un dimanche matin).
Au lieu de gérer la situation pour les 2 parties, en expliquant au
locataire que sont chèque lui soit remis un jour plus tard (ce qui n'aurait
en rien altéré la qualité de son séjour) Housetrip à souhaité prendre totalement partie pour le locataire, on m'a expliqué qu'il n'y avait d'autre solution que d'annuler le séjour. Ce que j'ai donc fais.
Résultat, je suis passé d'une très bonne place de classement à une très
mauvaise place, alors même que je loue sur de nombreux supports et que mes locataires sont toujours ravis de leur séjour.
Ce système de notation est d'autant plus injuste que tous les locataires ne
mettent pas de note.
Seulement 1 personne sur 6 en moyenne. Des locataires qui
sont très satisfait de leur séjour et dont l'avis n'apparait pas.
Ce qui fait d'autant plus baisser la moyenne générale.
Ce système aurait un sens, si TOUS les locataires notaient leur séjour.
D'autre part, si les locataires peuvent à loisir "critiquer leur séjour", il est absolument impossible de faire un commentaire sur leur propre attitude, ce qui n'est le cas dans aucun autre site de ce type.
HouseTrip provides an excellent alternative to hotel at the time to travel with family and/or friends. Reliable contact with landlords, value for the money, no surprises. Strongly recommend HouseTrip!
I found a place very fast and with a good price. The monitoring since the moment I payed was very good and they made sure I had everything I needed and get all the necessary information to enjoy my stay. Thank you very much!
I recommend this site. Used its services twice and it isn't disappointed
This was an easy way to book an apartment. We found ours to be very true to the info given on HouseTrip. We have only done it once, but will certainly give it another chance!!
"We booked on the web for us from 22 September to 27 September 2013. Sitting in the airport taxi driving through the narrow and bumpy lane, we never expect to find a spacious , modern apartment in this old historical town of Lisbon. No doubt its rough walk on foot , apartment is very well located to the nearby tram station that takes us to city & touristic spots. There are eateries and convenient shops in the neighbourhood. The apartment has 3 bedrooms, 2 bathroom and a fully equipped modern kitchen facilities . It has hi speed WIFI nternet connection. It gave us the feelings of Home away from home...We enjoyed the apartment very much and our stay in Lisbon, especially the warm welcome & help extended by the host Maria, whom goes out her way to take us to the airport on the lost of our camera. I would surely recommend this apartment to anyone who is visiting Lisbon !!!!
House Trip has given our family the opportunity to stay in cities and to experience life much as the locals do.Rather than the anonymity of a hotel we have enjoyed being independent and enjoying the kind of space and freedom you wouldn't get in a hotel room.All our hosts have been incredibly kind and generous and have helped us navigate their home cities. Apart from enjoying the accommodation I hope that we have also forged friendships with some of our hosts. Overall our house trip experience has been very positive and I can't see us ever staying in a hotel again!
This was the first and not the last time to book an accomodation through Housetrip. At the beginning I had some doubts that everthing will be ok regarding the flat, the smooth check-in and I receive proper service for my money.
Our accomodation was more than great and our host provided us a lot of precious information in connection with the flat, how we can reach it and sightseeing possibilities. He also gave me his and his wife's availablities for any unexpected situation.
Housetrip is a well-organised, well-controlled option for booking an appartment in a foreigh country. This company pays attention both for the guests and hosts.
It is excellent way for having a holiday.
I can recommend everybody both our host and the company Housetrip.
I've used a few other vacation rental sites, but House Trip has the best interface and layout, better photo gallery. I liked that they followed up with reminders and notices when hosts confirmed dates. Overall a great site for those looking for an alternative to a hotels and want an authentic experience!
The studio in NYC was well presented and exectly as we exspected. To rent the apartment was very easy and we got all the information we neaded for our stay by email. There should be more apartments in the whole world on House Trip. We really like this internet site.
We visited Valencia for Moto GP in November and used House Trip for the first time. I think we will now be using House Trip whenever we go away, it was like a home not an impersonal hotel room.
I had a great time again at Casa Vienna. I highly recommend the place, the hosts are really kind. They brought me the key to the place where I was, so I would not have to cancel my meeting.
Location is good, especially if you have business to do in the northern area of Vienna. There are plenty of parking places, but there is a charge for them on the street between 9.00- 22.00 (2 euros / hour). Tickets can be bought at the kiosk around the corner (watch for opening times). Local small restaurants include a Schnitzel place, turkish, italian, asian and serbian. There is a market on Saturdays right in front of the house. There is a Billa supermarket at a Bipa beauty shop next door. Also, a police station is just a couple of streets ahead.
wifi - good connection from a hot spot in all the rooms
furniture - great, clean, nicely designed
electricity outlets - enough in the living area, kitchen and bedroom, bathroom
tv - mostly German language programs (the cable box makes a weird sound when its on, that may be frustrating while watching films)
noise - no outside noise, but you can sometimes hear the neighbors arguing from above
The only thing I was missing from the kitchen was a microwave for quick warming up food.
What I like the most about housetrip is their communication beforehand and afterwards. They keep you posted on terms and conditions and have good service and seem to work with reliable hosts.
An excellent service. The website is easy to use. Booking the flat was straight forward and simple. The flat I found through HouseTrip was perfect. I would definitely use this service again. Thank you :)
We were struggling to find a hotel in Paris using the usual websites, but mixed reviews made it more difficult to choose the perfect hotel. After a few minutes looking on House Trip, we had found the perfect place - having returned, we can say that it lied up to expectations, and more! House Trip really made life a whole lot easier and we will definitely use the website again for future holidays and can thoroughly recommend that friends and family do the same!
This organisation shows the power of the internet: bringing very different and sparse groups of people -- house owners and people looking for a place to stay -- into contact with each other. The web site is organized in a very efficient and intuitive way, and you feel that Housetrip does many efforts to guarantee as much as possible that customers are treated in a correct way. After my first experience, I have a feeling I can trust a location that is offered on housetrip.
It was my first time using housetrip and i found it to be a better alternative then booking a hotel.
Easy to navigate pages and very easy to communicate with people from housetrip. I spoke with someone on the phone to confirm my booking. They spoke english and assured me that everything was underway and then followed up with an email.
I will be using them again for all my European trips.
I love House Trip and always use it when I travel. It's a great website, easy to navigate, and everywhere I have stayed has been just perfect - beautiful apartments in the heart of the cities / neighbourhoods. Plus it's so much cheaper than hotels and you can make your own food / have drinks which is great.
This has got to be one of the best innovative websites ever. Access to apartments and houses on a reliable site such as this is a godsend to those of us who get tired of hotels and their monopoly on €€€€. Communication was great, never felt as though we couldn't access a real person rather than fumbling through trying to find a voice to ask questions. Would most certainly recommend to anybody and also will be using HOUSETRIP in the future.
THANKYOU and continued success...and keep finding those gems:):):):)
