Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • This is a really great place to stay. We felt very welcomed, comfortable and well situated in the city. The 3 story walk up was a bit challenging with our bags but not insurmountable. The bed was comfortable but squeaky. Amy and Holly are clearly pros at this and communicate clearly and well. Syd, the dog is the mellowest sweetheart you could ever meet.

    Thank you!

  • Ce fut un plaisir de visiter Chicago et d'habiter dans un appartement de style
    mais quel dommage de ne pas avoir eu de conversation avec nos hôtes!
    Nous avons simplement regretté l'absence volontaire de communication de leur part.
    Sinon appartement à 10 min d'une station de train et 50 min du Loop. Appartement au dernier étage d'un immeuble et quand il pleut, l'eau s'infiltre dans la cuisine-salle à manger }bruit. Par contre très belle chambre et belle décoration.
    Quartier très calme. Stationnement gratuit du véhicule devant l'entrée de l'immeuble.
    Chien très agréable qui ne fait ni de bruit, ni de saleté.

  • For full experience, Amy & Holly's place is in a perfect location. Not far from the trains with also things to do in walking distance. The apartment was very quiet, and their home is beautiful. Great communication, and would definitely stay with these two again.

  • My wife and I stayed for 3 nights while doing interviews in Chicago. The apartment is gorgeously decorated and the room is very cozy and the building is very quiet. I wish I knew how to decorate my home like that. The location is safe and close to the train and getting downtown to the Loop was about 30 minutes and easy. Amy and Holly were great hosts and their dog was friendly, quiet and very well behaved. This was my first time using airbnb and it was a fantastic experience. There is a good chance we will be back.

  • I have stayed before at Holly and Amy's place. My trip was quite short this time so I just got to see them a couple of times but as usual they were very attentive and the room very clean as well. I would book with them again!

  • Amy and Holly's place was very clean and fu of art. It was a beautiful apartment. They were very friendly to us. And they have a very cute dog:) we checked in late around 10pm. They didn't complain to us at all. Very polite and nice. There were lots of free parking spot around their apartment. No noise at night or in the morning. So we had a really good rest their. Our room was really big and beautiful. Has a heater inside. We were very happy that we choose their place!

  • I've rented Amy's and Holly's place before, which is why I came back. Very comfortable and tastefully decorated apartment in a great neighborhood. And they are very easy-going hosts. Highly recommended!

  • Gran estadía en casa de Amy y Holly. Fueron muy atentas a la hora de hacer los preparativos necesarios para el chek in, siempre nos brindaron su ayuda para planear nuestro día y estuvieron dispuestas a aclarar todas nuestras dudas. El departamento es genial, muy amplio, puedes ocupar la cocina libremente y la habitación es muy cómoda y bien calefaccionada para aguantar las bajas temperaturas de Chicago.

    Está un poco alejada del Downtown, unos 5-8 minutos a pie a la estación de metro y luego una media hora o más en el tren, según el tráfico del día. Lo bueno es que la línea del metro (roja) te conecta directo al centro de Chicago, no tienes que combinar, lo que es muy cómodo.

    Syd, la mascota del hogar, es lo máximo!

  • Great people, great hosts, no bed bugs (thank goodness), would recommend to anyone!

My partner and I moved from St. Louis to Chicago 4 years ago. I work in entertainment and events and Amy works in publishing. We love entertaining, cook often and spend lots of time in nearby Andersonville. We love the arts, great food and can definitely recommend a variety of great things to do in Chicago.
