Adorable downtown apartment within walking distance to Chicago's main attractions and tons of great restaurants! Steps from Michigan Ave. shopping, and just a few minutes walk to museums, the Willis Tower, John Hancock Building, and Navy Pier!

The space

The apartment is in an amazing location -- right next to both the red and brown train lines, and a bus stop right outside the door. It's within walking distance of most Chicago attractions (Willis Tower, John Hancock Building, the Art Institute), three blocks from Michigan Avenue, and right by the lake, which is gorgeous in the summer! The bus from Michigan Avenue will take you to Navy Pier and other major museums (Shedd Aquarium, Planetarium, Field Museum).

The space itself is great for 2-3 people. You can use anything in the kitchen, and the studio space is cozy. Feel free to read any of the books too! (I have tons).

Guest access

Apartment, laundry (downstairs).

Interaction with guests

I travel often so I use and trust an off-site management team to help guests get the information and service they need to make their stay enjoyable! They will be your contact for all communication leading up to and during your stay.

Other things to note

There is a double bed, but also an air mattress that fits 1 person, so up to 3 guests can stay in the apartment.

While Rebecca was a prompt and attentive hosts there were several issues we faced at the apartment. It was a tight fit for the 3 of us. One adult and two teens found it a tight squeeze. The apartment had a mildew smell every time we entered the apartment. WiFi was a serious issue throughout even though Rebecca tried to have it fixed. We had to continuously reset the modem several times a day. Some of the utensils were dirty and had to be washed before use. Lastly the door lady kept asking us to sign in almost every evening. That's frustrating when you are back after a long tiring day. On the positive side it's a very centrally located apartment. Easy to Uber or Lyft. Close to restaurants and night life. Great pad to get in and out fast. If Rebecca fixes her apartment issues this would be a good place for 2. 3 as I said is a tight squeeze but ok if it's only to crash for the night.

Response from Rebecca:
I'm so sorry about the issues, Paul. I have instructed my cleaning service to address the mildew smell, and followed up with them regarding the dirty utensils. I will be sure to address the internet issues with my service provider as well. I apologize for the inconvenience and I do hope that, despite the issues, you were able to enjoy your stay at my apartment.

Let's start with the positives. Location is superb. Checking in is organized and a breeze. End of list. Negatives. I unfortunately was late getting into Chicago and so I found the apartment wreaking with mold. To double down, no air conditioning or pillow for the inflatable bed. Oh yeah, there's a lovely Picassoesque stain pattern on the inflatable mattress dotted with dead and live bugs that was found rolled up in the closet next to the bathroom that is likely where the strong mold smell is coming from. Oh yeah. Listing says there is wifi. No such luck. Oh yeah, AC in the middle of the Chicago August would also be nice like the listing says. Strike three. The upside to this is that the host was unresponsive but luckily Airbnb was there to rescue me from this trap. After a week to let my experience gel and my frustration subside, let me give you some frank advice: Ignore the "value" of this location. Skip and look elsewhere.

Response from Rebecca:
Hi Ike, I'm so sorry about your stay. I was out of the country for a few months and when I returned I realized you were right about the mold in the closet. My building maintenance has fixed that issue. There is WiFi that is currently working. I'm sorry if it wasn't while you were here, but that's never been an issue before. Thank you for your feedback and I hope you were still able to enjoy your time in Chicago.

Great location! Plenty of amenities in the area and super close to downtown. We both walked and Uber'd into town and it was not a problem at all, about an $8-9 uber. The apartment has everything you need for a comfortable stay, check in with the lock box was easy, we used ParkWhizz to get a park for our time there with no problems. Would stay again! Thanks!

Pros: great location, close to red line subway and bus stops. Building is charming. Cons: no air conditioning or microwave. Main closet is blocked off and the closet I was instructed to use was almost completely full and smelled strongly of mildew, I ended up not using it at all. I stayed for four nights and was ready to get out of there by the end. I would say this place is great for a one or two night stay.

I work as a freelance writer and travel whenever possible. I have lived in the Middle East, Asia, and Italy, and recently moved back to Chicago.
I love new experiences, coffee and spontaneity. Chicago is full of well known destinations, but there are some special secret spots I've found while living here and I'm happy to share tips and favorite restaurants with guests!
I speak English, Persian and some Italian, but can always find a way to communicate if needed!
