About This Listing
great room for rent near metro train station (12 min. to down town express line ) walking distance to museum of science and industry. 10 city blocks from presidents Obama residence in Chicago.
Marko is very nice and friendly. His place is very cozy. Even when we change our schedule, it's totally fine for him.
Marko was a great host! He was able to meet us at a time outside of his normal check in hour, and when we arrived he was more than welcoming. He gave our set of keys and showed us to the room, which is cozy with a king size bed and big closet. We had a great experience and shared great conversation with Marko. He is friendly and hospitable and I would definitely love to come back! Thank you Marko!
Marko is really nice and helpful host. The room looks exactly like in the pictures, the bed is huge and comfy. Neighbourhood is safe, the University of Chicago is two streets away from the apartment and during the night there are guards on the streets. It is really easy to get to the city center, the Metra line is in 10 minute walk distance, however we used buses (10 minutes walk) and metro (20 min) as we had bought Ventra cards before. Thank you Marko for hosting us, it was a great week in Chicago!
Nach dem Abholen des Schlüssels konnten wir gleich ins Zimmer mit bequemem Bett, das genau so aussieht wie auf dem Bild. Bad und Dusche sind nicht klinisch sauber, aber ok. Der beste Weg um in die Stadt zu kommen ist, den Bus zu nehmen und nicht die Red Line! Fährt man mit der zu weit kommt man in eine nicht mehr ganz sichere Gegend. Abends ist es uns passiert, dass die Wohnungstür von innen verschlossen war, aber Marko machte nach einem Anruf sofort ohne Probleme auf. Super Zimmer und man ist schnell an der Haltestelle, die in die Downtown führt. Marko war sehr nett, freundlich und hilfsbereit. Wir hatten Privatsphäre und die Gegend ist sicher. Gerne wieder.
Marko was a very hospitable host. The flat is positioned very good, nearby Hyde Park. The room is comfortable, with king size bed, and drawers and hangers for the clothes, and with Wi-Fi connection. Bathroom and kitchen are also free to use. I had a great time in Chicago and the staying at Marko's flat surely contributed to that:)
That was definitely a good experience! Marko always answered my emails and we were able to take an appointment to check-in one hour before my arrival. Everything is like in the photos. The neighborhood is really tranquil and safe and quite near to the public transport (best option to reach the Loop: Metra railways).
Marko was quite busy and I've never met him again after checking-in, but a friend of him, also living there, was always so kind to answer all my questions and provide me with any information about the apartment, the city and the neighborhood.
We made our reservation and we're contacted by Marko the day before our arrival. We came in at midnight and he was very understanding about waiting up for us. Marko's place is definitely no frills but has a homey feel. We had access to the kitchen and Marko let us borrow a towel. Although we rarely saw him he was kind and we really enjoyed our stay.
