The space

If you're looking for a true Chicago neighborhood experience, look no further! I have a private room available in East Pilsen, a diverse neighborhood near downtown Chicago. The neighborhood is thriving with city life and the beautiful murals that bleed from its walls are a testament to its pulse. The apartment is situated just two blocks west of the arts district and a short walk from UIC, and downtown is conveniently located just 2 miles away. In addition, Chinatown, Greektown, and Little Italy are also nearby. It's fun to experience these neighborhoods on a bike ride and there is a Divvy bike station located on the next block. Access to the train or bus is undemanding. However, if you prefer to drive, a Zip Car parking space is located within 2 blocks.
The apartment has two bedrooms and a single bathroom. Wireless internet and cable are available. For your convenience, there is also a washer and dryer in the unit.
Plenty of bars, cafes, and restaurants are within walking distance. During the warmer months, a farmer's market is located just around the corner and on every 2nd Friday of the month, the art galleries in the neighborhood host an open house. It's a great place to catch some local theater, art, and dance. In addition, the various block parties and festivals are also city celebrations not to be missed.

living/dining area

This is a two bedroom apartment. If I'm not there or the other room isn't booked, you'll have the entire apartment to yourself. Otherwise, the other bedroom could be occupied with another traveler.

The # 18 18th street bus is located a block away and the #8 Halsted bus is located 2 blocks away. Both bus will connect you easily to the metro.
