Cozy bedroom. I really liked it here. It wasn't too far from the pink line so easy to get to downtown. Another traveller mentioned there was no room for a big suitcase but mine fit fine under the bed. Diane was lovely. She was very helpful in checking in and quick to respond to m…

I had a great stay! The room is small but that worked well for me. Diane is friendly, and has good recommendation about what to do in the neighborhood and in the city.

It was just as Diane describes it: a small, cosy room inside an art gallery. It was a lovely experience to be surrounded by all those art pieces. Not much privacy and definitely not for a big or clumsy person, but certainly a nice place to stay! Diane and Bob were very dear too w…

Diane and Rob are nice, friendly and easy hosts. I enjoyed staying at the small room in their studio space. It was like staying at a friend's place! I enjoyed talking to them, although I wish I could have spent more time at their space! I liked the surrounding area for the coffee…

DIane's place is located about 30 mins from the Loop (walk + Pink Line) in an interesting neighbourhood, Pilsen. The artwork in the studio is cool. The space is extremely small (as communicated in the description), and there is no place to relax during the day, so it's fine just …

The room is tiny but cozy and clean; it's a good choice if you're not lugging a huge suitcase or don't need lots of space. The apartment is just a short walk from the Pink line L train, so it's easy to get around on public transportation. Diane was great about communicating. Over…

Had a great time in Chicago. Dianes apartment is a gallery as well and stuffed with a lot of interesting paintings. The room is small with no window (as she described it!), but enough for a couple of days. The metro is in walking distance and brings you to the heart of Chicago.
