Hans and Helen were fantastic hosts, making sure our stay and all our accommodations were perfect! The location was centrally located and we were never too far from all the great tourist spots, restaurants, and bars Chicago had to offer. It was my first trip out to the Windy City and I'm already looking forward to the next. Thanks again, Hans & Helen...Cheers!
Fabulous! Our executive team was in from out of town and the apartment was perfect. Smart, comfortable and in a great location! Easy access to restaurants and downtown! We plan to be regulars!
Hans and Helen were fantastic when helping set up this reservation. I set this up for out-of-town business associates - not for my personal use. But they all seemed to love the home and convenient location.
Terrific home - beautifully furnished with many amenities. Best for families with older children, given its location, which requires a subway or taxi ride into most Chicago sights.
This was such a nice place to say for a work trip my colleagues and I were on. The location, though kind of an "in-between" neighborhood, was really nice: quiet, convenient, safe. We were able to get around to the loop and wicker park really easily and the space itself was spacious, homey, and clean. Also, Hans & Helen were very accommodating when my flight was unexpectedly cancelled, and were able to extend my stay with almost no effort. I'd definitely recommend this place, especially for a group!
What a lovely space! My band and I were in town for a show and Hans was more than accommodating when we needed to extend checkout time. Very spacious home, great location just minutes drive from the uber hip West Loop district. Clean and well designed. Highly recommend.
