If you run or manage and Airbnb, then you have many things to consider. One of those considerations is which is the best duvet for an Airbnb? We will help point you in the right direction, and also help narrow down your choices.
For your guests the duvet needs to be clean and comfortable, and also needs to look good. People travel a lot these days and their expectations are high.
For the Airbnb owner, the duvet needs to be good quality so as it will last. It also needs to be machine washable. Guest should of course treat your bedding with respect. Most do, however there will be people who put their suitcases on top of the bed, and do other unimaginable things to bedding.
We would recommend going for white duvets as they look clean and sharp, and then making sure they have a cover that you can put in the washing machine. That way, you allow the careful guests to have quality and comfort, and the covers are easier to slip off, wash and dry quickly.

Airbnb Buying Tips
Practical and Comfortable
We now that you want your guests to feel comfortable, and we also understand that there is the practicality of keeping these clean. That is why we would recommend the Slumberdown as they look great and are also very comfortable.
At the same time they are also machine washable and also tumble dryer friendly. For an Airbnb, guest house, B&B or small hotel that is a prime consideration, and this duvet ticks those boxes.
Buy an All Year Round Duvet
Duvets come with different Tog ratings as we have shown below.
3-4.5 tog - Lightweight Summer Duvet
7.5-10.5 tog - Spring/Autumn weight duvet
12-13.5 tog - Winter weight duvet
Rather than have to worry about changing a duvet based on the temperature, it is much better to have an all year round Tog rating, and the best one for that is a 10.5 rating
