A Rant on AirBnB Ratings & Pricing

We’ve got just the same concerns about both pricing (which I’m sure is just averaging properties with the same amenity profile) and ratings (where guests, given no guidance, simply vote their emotions).

The new auto-pricing is especially concerning as it turns out it has no idea about seasonal pricing so is dramatically under-valuing what is usually our peak season, and we’ve no option apart from turning it off altogether. And of course, there is exactly zero way to engage Airbnb on these concerns.
