The space

-Your room is a medium size, with an AC unit in summer--good for one to two people.
-There is one other room in the apartment that is usually also rented to other travelers.
-Please note that this is an older apartment. It has a few quirks, like creaky spots on the floor, and in the winter the radiator heaters make some noise. The bathroom is cleaned very regularly, but there are signs of an old apartment. The place is taken care of and loved. *if you expect hotel setting, this is not the place for you!*

We really loved Poppy's place! My friend and I stayed for two nights while on a road trip and enjoyed our stay. Parking was free and it was always easy to find a spot. Poppy's apartment was comfortable and felt cozy and we felt welcomed. Communicating with her about check-in/check-out was so easy and she always responded quickly. The neighborhood felt safe and we didn't have any worries. The building is a little older, so some floors were squeaky and the upstairs neighbors could be heard walking around. Really wasn't that much of a problem though. Getting downtown via car was quick and easy, too! Would definitely choose this place again if I came back to Chicago.

Its a nice and friendly place to stay in a lovely living area. We didn't see Poppy that much, but she was always kind for helping us out. The room was cozy and lot of space. The apartment had a friendly homelike atmosphere, we had a great time there!

Poppy is a great host. Very helpful and with lots of good insights about where to go and what to see. The flat is artistic and conveniently located especially if you want to explore the areas around Wicker Park. Thanks for a great stay in Chicago!

The house is artistic and welcoming and Poppy is happy to help out. However, for the price point I'd like the bathroom to be better supplied (no shower gel for example) and cleaner as well as the kitchen to have at least a microwave or a griller and some clean utensils for heating or preparing a quick meal. It win points for the location and is situated in a pretty neighborhood.

Response from Poppy:
Hey! Sorry you didn't find the supplies you needed. The bathroom does have shampoo conditioner and shower gel, and the kitchen is well equipped with clean utensils and cooking ware. That's right though this is a no microwave home :)

Poppy has a great place that is walking distance to Humboldt Park and several bus stops to get you into the city easily. This is a fairly quiet neighborhood full of culture and good local eats that are definetly worth trying. I'd say this place is perfect for parties of one or two. Poppy was able to communicate easily when she wasn't home, and it was easy for us to move in and out like it would be in a hotel

I'm an actor and artist in my late twenties, originally from Northern California and born in England. I paint, play piano, enjoy people and laughing, watching weirdos like louis ck, and working on DIY theater projects. I keep my space clean, and love making it more flow-y and comfortable whenever I can--come check it out, and enjoy ;)
