I love the neighborhood recommendation feature on Airbnb which allows hosts to help their guests find the bests local spots.

Compared to public reviews on tripadvisor, I feel these are much more unbiased and personal.

Unfortunately Airbnb doesn't expose these beyond a specific rental listing.

So to help me discover restaurants and bars around while traveling, I've indexed these local recommendations, grouped them together and placed them on a map.

On mobile the links go straight to Google Maps to get the directions.

Hack: By taking into account the price of the refering Airbnb listing I make an educated guess of what kind of place it is.

Really nice project. One of my favorite things about using AirBnB are the host recommendations (some hosts do AMAZING jobs preparing their recommendation lists/letters). To me, the personal localization is is AirBnB's big differentiation (vs staying in a hotel).

I will definitely play with this more.
