Tippi is a very nice host. Before I go, she actively approached me for my details of arrival. The house is on a nice location as well! The bus stop is in front of the house. For the metro, you have to walk for 15 mins to the green line which is ok. The room is clean and tidy with a big and comfortable common area. I have a good experience in Chicago!!!
Very good access to public transport and quick transfer to downtown.
Clean, fair priced and in a nice enough neighborhood. Everything you need is available and labeled around the house so there's no confusion.
Tippi was very accommodating. My room was comfortable and I liked the fact that it is so close to a bus stop to head directly to downtown. Thanks Tippi!
Tippi's place is great! It is centrally located and has everything a budget-minded traveler would need! I stayed in the Yellow room which is small but cozy. The single bed has an ortho mattress and is divine. There is a normal amount of street noise that can be heard in the mornings but this did not bother me at all. I had the pleasure of meeting Tippi once during my 5-day stay and she is super nice and very helpful. The West Town neighborhood is like any typical inner city one in the US and I felt completely safe. The house is across the street from a great breakfast restaurant (ate there twice) and down the street from a nice little sushi restaurant. There is also a grocery store nearby.The best part of Tippi's place is its proximity to the downtown area - the #65 bus is a 15-min ride to the Red Line, Michigan Ave., and many other touristy spots. I would definitely stay here again!
Tippi was very responsive throughout the booking process and before my stay. Her place was true to description-- it was very clean, safe, and centrally located. Great experience!

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 2 extra bedrooms in my apartment.
