Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • Great stay in a truly stunning apartment. Our host Hansen was very welcoming and full of information and ideas. Short walk to transport and shops. The ideal apartment for a Chicago stopover.

  • We loved Chicago but it would not have been so good if we did not have a home away from home. Han's apartment provided us with everything we needed to cope with our day to day lives in comfort. The views across the south side of Chicago, convenience to public transport as well as the Field Museum, Adler Planetarium and Stedd Aquarium and minutes from a walk along the lake. From the point of contact, heartfelt greetings and continued availability, Hans decidedly is worthy of a 5 star rating and we will come again to stay in the apartment. He even gave us a lift downtown when we had arrived after a grueling 24 hours of flying!

  • Hans and his place were amazing! My little family and I stayed here for a weekend and it was perfect! We walked everywhere we went and the place was plenty big enough for us three. The doormen were all so pleasant and I loved that it was in such a great location! We walked across the street to the aquarium, to all of the restaurants we wanted to visit and we even embraced the cold on Sunday and walked 2 miles down Michigan Ave. for shopping! I couldn't have asked for a better experience on our first family vacation to Chicago. Thank you Hans - we will definitely be visiting again!

  • This was a great place to stay. I stayed with my wife and little guy, the place was perfect. Clean, bright, and great view. Super close to downtown with cab and we walked during one of the days it only took us 25 minutes and the walk was great. Hans is super friendly and helpful. Would definitely stay here again if we came to Chicago. The cafe at the bottom of the building is great.

  • What more can I say...all the previous reviews pretty much sum up the same great experience we had. Here are our highlights:

    - Great location that's near the L and buses
    - Beautiful view of the city (especially waking up every morning)
    - The apartment has everything you need that makes it feel like you're at home
    - Coffee shop located in his building which was very convenient for getting the day started.

    Hans is such a friendly guy who made the overall experience easy. He was very flexible with when we could check in / out. My fiancé and I will definitely use Hans' place again in the future.

  • Great location and very comfortable environment. It had everything we could want-tvs in every room, well stocked kitchen, great views on the deck, beautiful building and clean. Will definitely stay here again although it looks like the calendar is filling up and the apartment is becoming very popular. I can see why. Hans is wonderful to work with-always answers email promptly, met us at our appointed time. No hassles or worries.

  • What place to stay in Chicago is far larger,very quiet (by city standards),less expensive,and extremely convenient with a most charming,cooperative,friendly host than the Hyatt a few blocks to the North from the Field Museum???
    Why it is Hans Schmidt's 1235 S.Prairie Ave Apartment ,Chicago.
    We stayed for 6 nights and were extremely pleased with everything Hans and his apartment offer.The large,clean space with comfortable seating,a great bed and the convenience of a full sized ,extremely well equipped kitchen works so well on so many levels.Peapod delivers to your door.Hans has about every spice and cooking utensel imaginable and even had some foodstuffs.
    The walk to the Art Institute and the museum campus is easy.There is 24 Hr doorman coverage.
    Stay here,you won't be disappointed.Hans quickly set us up to use our iPhones and he made sure it worked.Hans responds promptly to all questions we posed.
    Will definitely stay here again. Nothing negative to report.Nice view,Five(5) stars{the maximum}.Highly recommended!

  • Absolutely a great place.Next time when coming to Chicago I want to come to the same place.

    The location is great - you can see Roosevelt station from the window. The great museums are just next to the house. The flat is very nice and clean - and the view is just amazing.
