Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • John and Bozena were very friendly and accommodating. The accommodations were just as described; wonderful! The stay was also convenient to everything in uptown Chicago including 2 concert venues (Riveria & Aragon). I would reccommend this place to anyone.

    April 2014
  • Very easy to communicate with via email and phone. Really enjoyed our stay and the space was exactly as advertised. The spa/shower was great and spent some time on the deck, even though it was cold outside. We took John's brunch recommendation for Nookies and it was fantastic.

    February 2014
  • The apartment is literally 2 minutes walk from red metro (which is also the main one to head downtown) and the neighborhood is really nice, 25 minutes tube ride from the loop (main central area). My room was super nice with a huge bed, well equipped and with a private deck. The Jacuzzi bath with steam shower was also a fun and relaxing experience. John and Bozen were great: warm and very helpful they made me feel home. I loved Chicago and loved to stay in their place. Thanks guys, hope to see you soon.

    October 2013
  • John and Bozena's place is old, charming and well maintained in a great area of Chicago not normally visited by tourists for there are no big hotels nearby. Bozena recommended several great Jazz venues nearby which were world class in quality and made our visit memorable indeed,

    October 2013
  • This was my first time using airbnb. The accommodations were absolutely lovely. John and Bozena are wonderful hosts! An added bonus is that their house is very close to public transportation. Overall a wonderful experience. Highly recommended!

    October 2013
  • We had a fantastic stay at John and Bozena's. Great location getting in to Chicago centre and the surrounding areas. The itinerary they put together was really helpful with great recommendations. Tweet in particular was brilliant for breakfast.

    It was really quiet at night and the room was clean and more than comfortable. We would definitely stay again!

    September 2013
  • Was an excellent 3 night stay with easy parking and gracious and warm hosts. Great area, comfy clean room and I was lucky to use the steam shower as well as the deck for some sunshine and fresh hair. You cannot go wrong with this listing in the uptown neighborhood of Chicago. John and Bozena went out of their way to make sure I was comfortable and are so easy to communicate with.

    November 2012
  • Nice house and nice John. This is also my first airbnb experience, and John had made it perfect. He helped me find out the way, he even walked with me to the CTA station. It is near and very convenient. Thanks, John.

    November 2012
  • John and Bozena were very helpful in getting us settled in and pointing out a couple places we could go for good food. The room and bathroom were both very nicely decorated and clean. I didn't get a chance to use the private deck since I only stayed one night.
    One thing is that I didn't realize that we'd be sharing a bathroom with another guest (not sure if that's my fault for not reading the whole description of the place). Not a big issue, but there was a time I wanted to use it and I couldn't.
    Overall, this was a great place to stay if you want some privacy, and it's conveniently located near metro stations/bus stops/good food (all within 15 min walks). There was a bit of construction going on nearby outside and our wall was adjacent to another guest's, but it wasn't too loud at any point.

    October 2012
  • my daughter, my mom and me had a very good time with John and Bozena. The room was exactly like the pictures and description and the ajoining deck is awsome. Unfortunately the weather was not so good so we didnt sit outside in the evening.
    John and Bozena are wonderful hosts: they were always helpful with information and very generous with the use of their kitchen and appliances. We got to know them as open and tolerant people, who were always interested, ready to talk or help out but also leave you to yourself. .
    And bailey.... is absolutely adorable! He's always ready to play and well behaved. if you tell him, he can't come into the room, he'll just sit outside and after a bit he'll wander off without complaint.
    Thanks John, thanks Bozena, when we come back to Chicago, we'll be sure to book the room again.
    best regards Hermine Altink
