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 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.
Marko was an incredible host. He was available to receive us earlier even though we couldn't warn him before hand. He is also a very nice person and will give you space.
The room was nice and clean. The bed was comfy.
The location is okay too. It is a little bit far from downtown but it's nothing that will ruin your trip since they have trains nearby.
Would definitely recommend staying at Marko's place!
Marko is very friendly. He met us at the entrance of the building and made our stay very easy and comfortable. Trustworthy host.
Marko is really nice and helpful. Many buses are running to bring you downtown late evenings, early mornings, weekdays and week-ends and the area is really safe with a farmer market on saturday morning just at the corner.
A good address in Chicago !
Marko was the best host that I could have ever met! I have never used airbnb before and there was no one better to have spent my month in Chicago with. Thank you Marko!
The reservation was canceled 7 days before arrival. This is an automated posting.
When I showed up Marko met me at the entrance to his apartment building, showed me around the apartment, and then gave me a key. The place was nice and what you'd expect based on the pictures. I wasn't there much more than to sleep which was pretty easy. There is more outside/neighbor noise than I'm used to, but it probably isn't different than any other apartment-- especially at this great price. The apartment is next to an elementary school and a couple blocks from the main University of Chicago campus so any worries about safety were easy to overcome.
When I asked, Marko was able to give me a map and guide me to the Metra station which goes into downtown Chicago that was about a 5 minute walk. There is also a bus station for the CTA a block further east (I would recommend taking CTA over Metra for the cheap transfers).
The pictures and other reviews are accurate, look them over and you'll know what you are getting into.
Marko is a very nice and gentle host, who gives you a whole lot of privacy and trust. The room was very comfortable, clean and warm. His apartment is just a few blocks from the U of Chicago campus and from the 55 and 63 bus stops where you can connect to the Midway airport easily. Thank you, Marko!
