Nice space, nice area, very welcoming.
The room was perfect for what I was looking for. Small and clean, perfect for studying and quick trips into the city. I have not personally had the pleasure to meet Mejai yet, but he is always responsive via phone/text. I would definitely stay here again in the first. My First Airbnb experience has been awesome. Thanks Mejai!
I was excited about my weekend in Chicago. Some of the rooms were really lovely with several great paintings. However, I felt disappointed about standing on the street of October Chicago with no one answering the door and phone after 15 hr of exhausting flight. I was grateful that I found my way in myself. Unfortunately, huge allergy developed during my sleep in the frozen basement at 4:00 AM with no one to ask for further sheet and help. Chicago is a lovely city. I will definite visit again but with some other places to stay.
its important to read the house manual before your stay. We keep extra blankets and spare heaters for guest such as you and all the instructions for such are in the house manual. Further since I live work here, you can all or leave a note when you need anything at all. We try to think of everything.
Clean, simple and enjoyable experience. Close to train as well.
La casa es muy linda y esta muy bien ubicada en una calle muy tranquila y rodeada de árboles, queda a solo pocas estaciones del centro de Chicago, no me pareció nada insegura la zona y varias veces volví tarde en la noche. La terraza es una delicia en los días soleados. Mejai es muy amable. La casa tiene todas las facilidades. Me encantaría volver a Chicago y definitivamente me volvería a quedar en este lugar.
My son who is a student at the School of the Art Institute stayed here for a few days before his new apartment was ready. Between work and his classes and studio time, he really only slept here - but it was very comfortable, peaceful and quite convenient for him to both work and school.
He would definitely recommend it and my husband and I might stay at the property when we come out to visit Chicago.
Exactly what I needed. A small room but cheap and clean and close to transport. Lots of other guests, a very friendly atmosphere.

Very Nice University of Chicago, IIT, McCormick Place, Parking is Free. We enjoy making visitors feel comfortable, welcome and confident about traveling around Chicago. We've made our house comfortable for academics and proffesionals. The location is one train stop away from the city center and a short walk to the lakefront.
The Mansion was purchased in 2008 and has undergone complete rehab.
Zen Mansion is located in the city center off the campus of Illinois Institute of Technology 5 minute walk. All trains, buses, cabs are here within 5 minutes walk. You can also walk to the lake front here.
The rooms are perfectly functional and comfortable. Our purpose is to be the best value in Chicago for comfort and convenience.
We intend to be the best value on airbnb. The rooms are very generous in size at 22' long X 16' wide. They are intended to serve as a suites for sleeping, working or lounging in privacy. Each room has a queen bed, dresser, desk, desk chair, sofa, love seat, chase lounge, proper art work , bedding and towels are all included.
This location is safe and central to all trains and buses. We are quietly the best kept secret in Chicago and we intend to stay that way. Namaste
