The condo was in a perfect location for just about anything and just 15 minutes from even the most North locations like Wrigley Field. We enjoyed the short stay we had in this condo and everything was as needed.
It was great, the apartment can get very warm. The location was perfect. The host was very responsive and prompt with replies.
Phenomenal as always! Definitely my little slice of Heaven in this big bustling city! Tons of parking near, very close to downtown, super cozy and affordable, tons of space for a studio, and a priceless experience. Staying here is always a joy (Yes, I'm a regular haha) and can't wait until my next visit. Also had the chance to interact with Marianne who cleans the apartment and she's a pure joy! I misplaced my ventra card and she had given me one that she had; what a beautiful person she is! Antonio is a great host and has great people to help keep his place running smoothly. Definitely will be back, looking forward until next time.
Let me preface this review with saying that the view was fantastic and I did feel very safe in an unfamiliar area. Also, the cleaning lady was extremely welcoming. However, the studio itself was not up to par for my girlfriend and I. The bathroom light had a short in it and the flooring had gaps. I know these are problems with this building you are renting but a heads up would have been nice. Now the negatives for the stay. We entered the apartment to a musty smell, dirty couch, bed, rugs, a dirty pan on the stove, broken dishwasher, and no toilet paper. While we were left with $2 from the cleaning lady to purchase some toilet paper, we were in an unfamiliar area and this was very inconvenient. We paid a basic $30 cleaning fee, which we feel should be refunded because I tried to clean the apartment myself one of the days we were there. There was a vacuum that did not work properly and some cleaning supplies but I've never had to clean my own hotel room upon arrival. I think this place has a lot of potential and I don't want this review to be totally negative because this was a good stay. I just wish the studio had been cleaned and that it felt more like a hotel rather than sleeping in someone else's mess.
The location, amenities, and decor were excellent. And the cleaning lady, Marianne, was very kind to us when we ran into her. If you're coming to Chicago to visit, you are at most a 15 minute drive from all the major attractions, and the less well known ones too.
The apartment is alright. I don't believe that it is actually located in the south loop--it is just the south side of the city. The cab driver dropped us off late Thursday night and told us he didn't want to drop us off down the street because it wasn't safe at that time of night.
The additional fees added for cleaning and one more guest made it the same price it would have been for a groupon deal downtown.
When we arrived, the code pad was broken and we were only able to get in because a security guard happened to come along.
The apartment itself is sort of clean. There is a distinct odor, some dust, and I wasn't fully convinced the bedding had been washed recently. However, I am picky about that sort of thing.
If you are wanting to your downtown Chicago, I recommend checking groupon. This was my first and most likely last AirBnB experience. This is just my personal opinion and obviously some guests really loved the place--for the amount I ended up paying, I would have rather stayed in a hotel.
Antonio's place was great. Super easy check-in process, and he was very helpful fixing the WiFi. We rented it b/c my wife was working nights at Mercy Hospital for the weeks, so didn't need anything fancy, and this place worked perfectly. Only about a 7 minute walk to the hospital, and Carbon Mexican Grill nearby delivers and is delicious. Only downside was the shades are very shear, so there was nothing to block out the light while she was sleeping during the day. Room was also VERY hot, and we couldn't figure out how to cool it down without just leaving the balcony door open.
