There is a bus to Michigan Ave/Navy Pier in front the house and train station to downtown 0.7 mile away.
Other Things to Note
Guest will help change sheets on the check out day for next guest unless check out before 8 am. I will change it. I have to leave for work at 8:30 am. The bed should be made the same as when you check in.
Absolutely no smoking or shoes in the house. This includes take your shoes from your room and put them on downstairs. Only house slippers (no flip flop, socks is perfect) is allowed. Please help save energy by turning off light when not in the room.
The apartment was exactly what I needed. Perfect location and everything you need. Definitely think about staying here if you are wanting something good in Chicago.
I booked a small nice room in this apartment. Because of my schedule, I only met Tippi on the check out day morning (so fortunate to see her hahaha). The apartment is really comfortable with cute decoration. Everything is so wonderful in a fairly good price. Strongly recommend! (If I would book this again in the future, I wish I could have a talk with Tippi~ She must be an amazing person XD)
I enjoyed my stay at Tippi's place and would definitely recommend it! The location is convenient, I felt very welcome and Tippi was friendly, flexible and helpful.
I had my first Airbnb experience in Tippi's house and I should say that it was quite pleasant. The room is as advertised. Small but clean and comfortable. That said, the common area is spacious and comfortable. One downside, if you are a light sleeper like me, is that the room overlooks a relatively busy street and can be a bit loud at night and in the morning.
The location is fantastic considering the price you pay, takes you less than 25 min to go downtown near the Loop. Be advised that you might have to walk about 12 min to the subway station, which was not pleasant for me since I had to dress semi formally and it was during the early July heat. There are bus stops closer to the house, but that might be less convenient in terms of trip duration and frequency of buses.
I didn't get to interact much with Tippi, but we had a nice friendly chat during my first night; she was very helpful and accommodating. Overall great host, great place, and I would recommend it to others.
Tippi's room was just what I needed for a place to crash in between concerts at the United Center. It was quiet inside and relaxed. I met two of the other guests the first night who were very nice but apart from that I didn't see anyone! The area is quite busy but it's very centrally located, close to the bus. The bathroom was clean which was a big concern of mine haha. Tippi also has instructions around the house to make everything easier. Thanks again!
Very nice place. Very clean and good location, near the city.
Tippi is a very good host
I was very glad that I had found Tippi's apartment for my stay in Chicago. Tippi is very hospitable and very helpful.

About the Host, Tippi
I am from Thailand, single and work full time for one of the top consulting firm. I am an easy going, friendly person. I like to scuba, golf, cooking, baking, movies or watch TV at home. I love to meet people, make new friend and Airbnb is one of the great way to do that. That is why I rent out the 2nd floor apartment in my building.
