10 Baltimore Airbnb Accommodations That Are Full Of Personality - Updated 2020

airbnb Baltimore

Baltimore is a city that is full of character. It has a rich history and its roots as a working class town give it a unique vibe. Baltimore has a personality, and that’s something that you don’t want to miss out on during your stay.

It’s not just the landmarks where this is obvious – the architecture of the many buildings in the city reflect Baltimore’s past. These Airbnb accommodations in the City of Charm have blended historic touches with modern conveniences and comforts. They are full of character and history, and are a great alternative to a generic hotel.

Private Rooms

Baltimore has many places that offer a room for one or two people. They are great alternatives to booking an entire apartment to stay in; they are usually more efficient and often cheaper. Plus, you have the added benefit of having close interaction with your host, who can give you valuable insights for your stay.

This is a gem of a place. It is very large, cozy, clean and hip. Jeannette is the consummate host and goes the extra mile to ensure her guests are comfortable. Terry (Guest Review)
This spacious suite in Upper Fell’s Point offers travelers a cozy and comfortable stay. The exposed brick wall and hardwood floors lend the room a charming and rustic vibe. This location is brought to life by the host’s two adorable cats and dog. However, if you’re allergic to fur you might want to pick another place to stay.

This Airbnb neighborhood was voted “Baltimore’s Best” by the City Paper. You can expect to see many residents sitting on the porches in the evenings having coffee and chatting. You’ll be staying one block away from the house where Billie Holiday grew up. Now, five gorgeous murals mark the block, making it easily identifiable.

As for getting around, the Charm City Circulator (CCC) has a stop one block away, making traveling to different attractions easy. The host even provides a welcome manual, which will help you get around if you feel lost. For a fee, you can book custom tours of various areas with your host.

The room was a step above its price. I was very satisfied with the ease of checkin and checkout. Roldofo (Guest Review)
This place is great for guests who are looking for a peaceful place to come back to every night. You get an entire floor to yourself, complete with a private bathroom. The floor has a double bed and a single bed, so it’s good for bigger groups who don’t mind rooming together.

The Hampden neighborhood has transformed from a blue-collar mill town into the epicenter of all things hipster and stylish. It’s a safe area, so you can walk around at night without worrying. You can easily walk to shops, restaurants, and bars in the area. If you’re not sure of where to go, the on-site host, Nick, loves to share information about Baltimore.

You will fall in love with this 19th-century row home. It has a secret garden tucked away inside, providing a peaceful little spot of green in the city. Guests stay in a private bedroom, which has a comfy queen-sized bed.

It can be a bit hard to find this Airbnb rental, so make sure to contact the host beforehand if you need extra directions. It’s situated on a quiet little alley street, but is rich in history. It was where Frederick Douglass, one of the prominent civil rights figures in history, built five homes that are still standing today.

The young couple who host at this Airbnb let are avid travelers themselves and are keen to tell you whatever you want to know about their city.
