Just returned from spending 5 days in Chicago in Hans' and Helen's beautiful home. The space was perfect for a group of friends traveling together. The beds were comfortable and having 3 bathrooms was a luxury (important when you have 6 women in the same house!). The location was super convenient for going into the downtown core, or heading North to some of the other great neighborhoods in Chicago.
Hans was incredibly responsive and helpful both before and during the trip. It's clear he takes pride in sharing his home and making sure his guests are comfortable. I would stay here again in a heartbeat.
We rented both of Han's units and both were great overall. The accommodations matched the advertisement and we thought it was great value for what you can get in the area. Han's was very accommodating during booking process, leading up to and also during the reservation period. We would definitely stay here again.
Our party of ten had a relaxing and comfortable stay. The location was accessible to downtown and airport. We enjoyed the two relaxing living rooms and access to three bath rooms for our large party. We would highly recommend this Airbnb to others.
A great property for our large group. The owners were very easy to contact. The location is excellent, and we would love to stay here again!
Listing pictures were very accurate. Apartment was very spacious and comfortable as well as modern and well maintained. Hans was a great host. He even mailed me back my keys as I left them in Chicago.
Great location. This place worked great for all of our family. Very convenient to the blue line and the Windy City Café is a great breakfast location
