The description is very accurate. This is a clean nice room with a convenient location -- very close to downtown Chicago, in a walking distance to Ashland CTA station of Green and Pink lines, and on multiple bus routes. I checked in two hours late and Tippi was very understanding. Will for sure consider this room for any later visit to Chi.
I had a great time in Chicago and in Tippi appartement. The little orange bedroom is very comfortable, exactly as described, and is located near the near city center, 10 minutes by bus. Tippi is very welcoming and friendly. Thank you very much for your kindness, Tippi! It was a pleasure to meet you.
I stayed for two nights here on my first visit to Chicago. I had no difficulties locating and entering the place. The place was clean, comfortable and as described. The bus route outside her apartment gets you right to downtown and the Navy Pier, which was very convenient. Overall, I had a great stay. Thanks Tippi!
Tippi's place was the perfect pitstop for my visit to Chicago. It is well located for Blue and Pink/Green lines and the 65 bus takes you straight into downtown and Navy Pier. The room was spotless and the bed extremely comfortable, which was great after a day of sighseeing. Tippi was also very welcoming and I enjoyed chatting to the other guests I bumped into.
This place was perfect for my 3-night stay in Chicago. I wanted a super-affordable place not too far from downtown. This place definitely worked. I never took the bus, but I did walk to the green line station once. Tippi is super nice and welcoming and not around much. There were other airbnb guests there when I was there. I didn't even see one of them, and only met the other in passing once. The room itself was very comfortable. There was a little space heater, and since I like to be warm, it was great to use it in the evenings before I went to sleep. As you can see from other reviews, there is a barking neighbor dog who is pretty loud in the mornings. I knew this ahead of time and brought earplugs - used them once, easy peasy. Also Tippi has gorgeous plants in her home, it's a lovely touch. I would definitely stay again.

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.
