Home stay rental via Airbnb.com @ Portland, Oregon

The cost of accommodation in Portland, Oregon is quite expensive. The alternative that I use to overcome this problem is using Airbnb.com. For me, location is a very important factor when looking for accommodation when travelling. The room cost around USD50.00 a night by using Airbnb.com which is cheaper when compared to using the regular hotel/hostel booking website. A normal hotel room near Downtown Portland cost at least USD80 to USD100 a night. With good location, you may save time travelling and cover more places that you wanted to go in a shorter period of time.

Besides visiting many places, stamina is an important factor as well. After three to four days of continuous walk, the legs will begin to feel the pain and tiredness that would slow down the pace. So good walking shoe is important as well.

About my stay in Portland, its great and I enjoy the bedroom that I have. One of the day, the house owner is not at home so basically I have the whole house for my own. The owner is a part time artist and he is kind and good. When I checked into his house, he was not there and give me instructions on how to enter his house. The room is exactly as shown and as described in Airbnb website. The wifi connection in his house is good and the house location is within 10 minutes walk to the nearest MAX station. The host also provides free granola meals as well. Although, you need to travel around 20 minutes to get into Downtown Portland, the location itself is convenient as nearby there are many restaurants as its very near to the Historic Mississippi Ave. This is a good stay in Portland, Oregon!
