Tamara was a wonderful host, very friendly and with some excellent recommendations for food etc, one of which really made my time in Chicago quite special. Great location on the Blue Line, super easy to get downtown. If you're sensitive to noise bring earplugs!

The room was clean and the bed was comfortable. There was a fan in the room, which was nice since it's summer. Tamara was very communicative, and check-in was flexible. The other guests in the house were quiet and respectful. Overall, it was a great experience.
