How To Use Yale Smart Locks For Your Airbnb

Airanb-smart-phone

If you love your holiday you must have booked holiday homes via Airbnb or Booking.com or directly from hosts like ourselves. You might have travelled to the holiday home and you cannot seem to see a key hole, keybox or anything remotely familiar with normal locks operated with keys. I think with COVID the necessity for remote check-in has accented the heightened use of smart keyless locks similar to Yale Smart Lock. In this article, I will talk about how to use one of these smart locks so you don’t feel stressed while checking in to your holiday home.

When you arrive you may see no keys but something looking similar to the above lock. It will look slick and you will see no numbers for you to enter your code, but don’t worry and don’t fret. This short article will help you to understand how to use smart locks.

The screen of the lock will look like the above image and enter the code you simply need to put your palm on the screen. The digits will light up when you touch the screen. If it does not light up then the battery on the lock might have died and you would need to call the host or get 9V Battery. You will be able to place the battery at the bottom of the lock, which will give sufficient charge for the lock to work. Given that the smart lock has enough battery you will see the digits immediately.

Since it is sensitive for human touch it will light up and show the digits from 0 to 9 and star and hash icons. Press the relevant numbers communicated to you by your host and press star sign at the end. Do not forget to press star sign at the end and then turn the silver knob to the RIGHT on the lock.

If the door has not opened then you also need to press the handle to the LEFT.  If the door has handle then it might be on the hook of the handle, so you put the code and then the star, turn the silver knob to the RIGHT and the handle to the LEFT. That is it! You are in!

Top 10 Cafes To Enjoy Your Coffee & Teas & Breakfast In Bath City!

Top 10 Cafes To Enjoy your first cup of coffee or tea or go for breakfast in Bath City.

It is important to visit Bath city and experience an enjoyable cup of tea or coffee with cake or scone. It is the collection of those small experiences that make our memories about our trip unforgettable. When you come to visit Bath city it is important to enhance your experience with amazing food and coffees and cakes. Hence, I am writing today about the best places to have a cuppa in Bath so your experience of Bath city is unforgettable.

My experience of a new city starts with a lovely cup of a tea and a warm croissant or scone with jam and from that cup of tea or coffee I start the experience of the town. Understanding importance of your experience I don’t take the selection of coffee shops lightly. I research before going to new place the best cafes in that town. There are so many amazing coffee shops that choosing only top 10 is very difficult.

1. Rosarios

Being a big fan of a hot cup of tea, it is getting more and more challenging to find a place with a great cup of tea. When it comes to a lovely brewed hot cup of tea, Rosarios is far ahead of any café I have visited in Bath. It serves a loose tea in a pot of tea with tea strainer the tea is the best brewed tea you can find in Bath city center. Rosarios is not only famous for its best quality tea but also for its selection of cakes and unique pastries that you wont find anyone else. It also offers breakfast and vegetarian options and get this, they are only one of the few places which can offer you half portion of breakfast. It is so rare to find in Bath city centre half size breakfast.

2. Mokoko Coffee and Bakery

Let’s be fair towards the coffee lovers. The best coffees are much competitive to choose from.  At the end of the day there are more people ordering coffees than tea. Mokoko Coffee and Bakery is great place to have your first cup of coffee in Bath. There is a great attention to detail, many different milks to choose from and the coffee does taste rich and smooth. Not only that Mokoko Cofee comes with great selection of salads, coffees, pasties. It is mostly vegetarian food but it is delicious.  You will find a good range of comfy chairs to sit and enjoy your coffee. If you are here and you love chocolate taste you should try Mokoko’s Mocha which is an absolute delight!

3. Bath Bun

This beautiful place is located very close to Sally Lunn’s Building. We went for a afternoon tea and their sandwich platter to share. Their pot of tea was good size and sandwiches and scones were very tasty. What enhances your experience is the feel of the tea room, the staff wear aprons and call you “madam” and “sir” which makes you feel a little bit of the past tea experiences. I think it is a very good place to visit if you are visiting Bath

4. Café Luka

This is very contemporary café so you will find experience here very different from the Bath Bun’s place. But for many years in a row it served best breakfast in Bath city. It changed it slightly since Covid lockdown but it is pretty decent. The experience is enhanced with the interior design shop, the place itself is well designed and it makes you feel at ease. The staff is very attentive and nice. The food selection is wide, you can have a salad, cake, coffees or a meal. It has it all for every visitor

Green Bird Café

Well this spot is absolutely great. We have placed it lower on the list not due to its quality of coffee but due to its location. Of all the coffee shops maybe this one is a little out and challenging to find, where all else are right in the main street. But don’t be fooled with its location because it is absolutely popular place. It has a unique menu with really amazing food and it is absolutely popular café in Bath. It is popular for its food, coffee, cakes and everything they do is quality food.

6. The Colombian Company

This small spot is surprisingly great for their hot chocolate, coffees and cakes. As the name suggestst The Colombian Company, its coffees and chocolates are from Colombia. This is a small coffee shop opposite to the M&S foodhall and it has a beautiful selection of coffees. It has interesting distinct taste to it and if you love a hot chocolate, you should try The Colombian hot chocolate and you won’t regret your decision. What is not so great about this coffee shop is that it doesn’t have good comfy chairs which is a big minus for me. However, if you are on the go wanting to grab a coffee definitely give their coffee a try!

7. Green Rocket Café

This is a vegan café and they do really impressive cup of coffee and amazing cakes. The staff is very attentive and you will be surprised how busy this café is.

8. Nero

The Café Nero in Bath opposite HMV is a great place to visit. They do really good coffee but not only that they have a great selection of sandwiches and cakes and crossaints. I think it is all round a very good place to visit. The sofas are very comfortable, once you register for internet in Café Nero in any city it will recognise you in another which is so convenient.

9.Boston Tea Party

This little place in the Kingsmead square is beautiful and well situated. It has a great feel to it, great staff, great coffee and cakes and bakeries. It is perfect way to sit hav a cup of coffee and observe a busy life of Bath city. There is so much happening around you but at the same time you can enjoy your solitude and forget the busy life by observing a massive tree in the middle of the square. Lovely spot!

10. Soho Coffee

I cannot  NOT mention this coffee house. It is the quality of coffee and service and the comfy chairs. I would feel the list is not complete without this lovely coffee spot. I must mention they do amazing baked potatoes with beans and cheese. It is the best baked potatoes in Bath. It is located perfectly for your visit in Bath city center it is right in the middle of it. So you can start you walk through city and then come to this coffee house and after a break continue your lovely tour.

  1. M&S Café

The list will not be complete without this great place. The only thing you would need to go to the third floor to visit this café as it is located inside the M&S. However once you take the effort of going through the entire shop to their café area, they will delight you. With great cofees, cakes, salads, sandwiches and many many more options. Coffee and cakes are really good and taste delicious.
