SHOCK!!! DANGEROUS KANSAS CITY WESTPORT AIRBNB SCARES INTERNETS!!!
Visions of Sabine Jemeljanova are somewhat comforting amid this scary online review of violent Kansas City thwarting an Internets discount service . . .
Check the review . ..
My girlfriend and I recently visited Kansas City and stayed at an Airbnb. The accommodations were great, the hosts were friendly, and our overall experience was very positive. However, the area nearby that they told us was safe is not safe (in fact, I heard a shooting there overnight). Do we mention this in our review?
On one hand, these people were great; their house was nice and they were very friendly an accommodating. However, in addition to the shooting that I heard (and I confirmed it by reading the paper the next day; it was less than a mile away from us, in in the heart of the entertainment district), it turns out that there is one violent crime there every four days (my girlfriend looked this up) and there have been shootings in the same area once the previous two months as well.
When we asked about safety, the host told us that it was fine as long as we were street-smart . . .
And then . . .
Read the whole review for a question of AirBnB etiquette whilst local violence continues to hurt commerce of all kinds.
