Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • Bozena was a very accommodating host. Helped with parking and any necessities I needed. Great establishment and great hosts! I would stay there again and recommend it to my friends and family!

    September 2013
  • Great house, great location, great hosts! We were only able to speak with John and Bozena briefly, but they were extremely welcoming and gave us a great sushi recommendation. Also, literally half a block from the Aragon Ballroom if you're seeing a show there (really fun venue by the way)!

    July 2013
  • John and Bozena's home was the first stop on a cross country road trip for my girlfriend and my small pug. We had an incredible stay. John was incredibly friendly and helpful in guiding us through spots to eat and being incredibly gracious in accommodating our pug.

    Their home is very beautiful and the room was incredibly comfortable and clean. I will highly recommend their home if you are visiting Chicago. Location is great and only 1 block away from the metro.

    April 2013
  • John And Bozena were incredibly friendly and warm hosts. Their house was always clean and they would go the extra effort to make sure I was comfortable. The location is also great -- it's just a brief walk from the L, the Green Mill, and some great restaurants.

    December 2012
  • John and Bozena's bed and breakfast is really cozy and welcoming.
    It's the second time I come and I really feel comfy. It's also a very convenient location to park your car and then visit Chicago by train (direct to the loop).

    December 2012
  • John and Bozena are really friendly!!! Gave us a lot helapful information to travel in Chicago.the house is clean and (website hidden) really wanting to go back in the future.

    September 2012
  • I bought the room for my parents. Here's what they said:
    It was a cozy place that we enjoyed a lot. We loved the beauty and quietness of our room and the nice view of the terrace right outside. Good location for people who want to explore the Uptown area and conveniently located near the Metro. Pleasant and accommodating owners!

    September 2012
  • John and Bozena are truly 5-star super hosts!! My wife and I moved to Chicago looking for an apartment for lease. We stayed with John and Bozena during our search and they both proved such great hosts. They were genuinely concerned, guiding, helping and accommodating all our needs. John recommended us the best places to live in Chicago and even a gave us a good tour of the neighborhood. I would recommend them to everyone and look forward to stay with them if the need arises. Bailey is a cute addition to their family and removed the fear of dogs from my wife :)

    July 2012
  • Great place! Clean, comfortable, and quiet -- and John was a terrific host. Highly recommended.

    June 2012
  • Our experience staying at John & Bozena was equally satisfying and comfortable, the place was a pleasant match to what we planned to see and do. They are exceptional hosts.
