Interaction with Guests
You will receive an entry code combination and detailed check-instructions when the room is ready on the day of your arrival. Typically check in is anytime after 5:00PM but we will do our best to check you in earlier. There is no space for storing bags, so we cannot hold your bags while you are seeing the town. I recommend leaving your bags at a hotel concierge until your ready to check in we just have no room to store them.

There's a white board said welcome me so that I knew that's my room. Location is very close to downtown, can take either green to the loop to the Wills tower, or take red to Michigan avenue, quite convenient.
Mejai is a very nice host, he knew we had 3 people and put an extra small bed in the room before we got there. The place is very easy to find and close to the bus and subway. A good place I will definitely recommend friends to stay!
Meijai is a nice and friendly person. He is helpful with everything you might need. The location is great and the room is big and clean. Definitely will book here if I get chance to visit Chicago again.
It was my 1st time using Airbnb and I had a great experience. Mejai was very nice, accessible and responded quickly. Place is clean and very close to public transportation.
The reservation was canceled 3 days before arrival. This is an automated posting.
The place is really nice. We had a good time there. During our visit Chicago was very cold, Mejai gave us some extra warm blankets, but the room was warm enough. I can everybody recommend this location.
