I have read numerous threads about renting illegal apartments so I now have more of an understanding, however I did read on frommers I think that if you actually rent a room from someone than that seems to be ok.
I have been looking on airbnb where people actually rent out their rooms so my understanding is this is legal. I have only been looking at the ones that have 20+ reviews, all positive, and the ones who are classed as a "superhost" although I am unsure what that means.
We are coming from 22 June - 2 July, so total of 10 nights, I have looked on travelzoo and all others recommended and cheapest I could find was Astor on the Park for $1806, whereas airbnb I found one for $1250.
I am really keen to hear from tourists who have "rented" through airbnb, I just want to make sure that it's all safe and legit, I do understnad that if you do everything through the website then you seem to be ok.
Thanks for any advice you can give
