This Is It Studio Gallery is a storefront studio apartment with a guest room. The building is a simple 1880's Victorian-era apartment house. The guest room is small and privacy may be considered limited. The Pink Line 'L' Station is nearby, with #60 & #18 bus stops just steps away. Coffee houses, shops, restaurants, and arts galore throughout the south side! Pilsen is the coolest 'hood in Chicago.

A huge thank you to Diane and Bob who made me feel so welcome and comfortable. As an artist it was lovely to stay amongst Diane's works and brushing Lightning (the resident cat) was my guilty pleasure. The accomodation is modest and very comfortable, the room is small, cosy and y…

Although Diane and Bob are real nice people, I can not fully recommend their place. The room is very small as described, but what makes it hard to sleep is the neighbors above, who appear to redecorate their apartment every late night and still manage to get up early and trample …

Noises have occurred from upstairs and I have let the neighbor know to keep her kids quiet. This only happens occasionally since the kids don't live there and only visit once a week. The possible circumstance of noise from a second-floor city apartment is mentioned in This Is It's listing description. Unfortunately, Gregor never mentioned any problem to us, otherwise, we would have made sure the noise stopped Immediately. It is primarily quiet here 99% of the time. Thanks, Gregor. I hope you find that perfect place for $23 a night.

The space is small but perfect for a single traveler. There are no windows in the room so it's easy to sleep in or nap if needed.

This space is very unique being inside a gallery! The room is as small as described but it’s all you need when you’ll be hitting the town all day! Very fun & quirky. The hosts are very kind and accommodating. I stayed here 4 nights and loved it! Close to bus stops & the L.
