The Space

Between apartments or just visiting? Tiamat House has rooms available in a gorgeous, urban, eco-friendly loft with private full bathroom. Included are linens, wifi, gorgeous chef's kitchen, dance/yoga studio, and free laundry. Beautiful hardwood floors, granite and stainless fixtures, private deck and private rooftop. In Avondale right off the blue line at Belmont, walking distance to Logan Square. Local, organic breakfast included (and adjusted to dietary restrictions.) Secure, gated parking is available for $10/night.

Bedroom is 240 sq feet, queen size bed and twin size futon, en-suite marble master bath with dual vanities, euro-style spa shower with seating and body jets, and jacuzzi tub.

The cat lives *only* in the common space, so the bedroom is allergen free. Rooms disinfected between every guest with UV wand. Smoking outside only (non-tobacco welcome) and shoes off inside, please. We're quite happy to help you figure out the city and answer any questions that might help a traveler or newcomer get acquainted. Wine-tasting classes may take place in the studio during your stay.

Breakfast is self-serve: Please help yourself to anything in the kitchen. It is always stocked with an assortment of all things local and organic: eggs, greek yogurt, milk, cheeses, meats, bread/pastries/cereals, juices and fruit, jams, etc, and fair trade coffee and tea. We welcome special requests. You are very welcome to use our kitchens for your own cooking.

Interaction with Guests

We live in the unit but generally keep to ourselves and interaction is minimal. Breakfast is self-serve.

The Neighborhood

The neighbourhood is multicultural, hipster, and hippie. It's extremely walkable, full of locavore shops and restaurants, farmer's markets, and arts festivals complimented by seedy dive bars and 24 hour taquerias.

Getting around

We are very close to the blue line and the Belmont bus stops right in front of our house. Both are 24 hours.

Overall Guest Satisfaction
Check In
  • Tc's apartment is very comfortable, the bedroom was exactly as described, the private bathroom was very spacious and complimentary toiletries were also provided, which was definitely a nice touch from the host.

    My brother and I had breakfast and also sometimes dinner in the apartment. Most of the time we were eating the food provided by Tc for ourselves. The apartment is located in a safe neighborhood, very close to the blue line which is very convenient both for connecting with the O'Hare airport, but also with the city center (the Loop).

    Tc's cat, Meyonce, is really the star of the house. That cat definitely knows how to beg for food! We were waking up by her meows in the morning, but that was fine, since we had lots to visit anyway so waking up by her and not our phone alarm was actually better. Trust Tc on her recommendation for not feeding the cat! Meyonce has a very sensitive stomach, so it's better to leave the feeding to her master. If you're not a cat lover and are not comfortable in seeing a cat jump on the kitchen table and in the garbage bins, then maybe you shouldn't book this room.

    All in all both myself and my brother had a lovely time with Tc and Meyonce and we recommend their apartment! :)

  • Tc Safavi was flexible regarding arrival and departure hours. We had all the information we needed about facilities and equipments and she also gave us suggestions for food place when we asked for. The room was clean, full of sunlight and comfortable. The rest of the apt wasn't as clean as the room. The kitchen wasn't cleaned before and during our stay and the fridge neither. The breakfast, included in the price of the room, wasn't really good (no bread). The apt's location is good - near the nice neighborhood of Logan Square - but not really next to fancy places for food or drinks. For those, we had to walk a bit (10-20 minutes).

    Response from Tc:

    Future guests please note - breakfast items are purchased on request. These guests were provided the items they specified, but they did not ask for bread. We are very happy to purchase whatever is wanted, but we are not psychic. Future guests should please specify what they want when asked at check in or at any time via the cell phone numbers provided.

  • My wife and I stayed in the Master offered by Tc for four nights and it was phenomenal. Whenever we go back, we'll definitely look in to its availability. The room was clean, spacious, and (website hidden) was an awesome person to be able to meet and everything we needed was available to us. We were given our privacy, but Tc was also seemingly available when needed. She went above and beyond to make sure we were accommodated.
    All in all, a great trip and a great place to stay. We highly recommended it.

  • Estuve 4 días hospedada en la casa de Tiamat junto con una amiga. Tuvimos una muy buena experiencia. La habitación que alquilamos era muy espaciosa, el baño también. El hecho de poder desayunar en la casa y que de hecho haya siempre mucha variedad para elegir ( distintos tipos de pan, fruta fresca, jugos, dulces, etc) nos resultó muy práctico. Para ir al centro de Chicago se puede usar el tren que funciona las 24 hs, está a aproximadamente 5 cuadras de la casa. El viaje es de 20 minutos. Ese mismo tren te deja en el aeropuerto, cosa que también nos resultó muy práctico. Definitivamente recomiendo la casa.

  • The place was beautiful, clean and spacious. It was the perfect place for my party and I to get ready for the wedding we were standing up in. We had a wonderful time and much appreciated the non-dairy breakfast food options that Ben stocked for us!

  • My friends and I really enjoyed our stay here. The loft is really close to the train station for easy access to transportation. And our hosts were nice and helpful. We would stay here again for sure.

  • A large group of us rented all of the rooms offered by TC in order to attend Riot Fest and explore the city. The location was fantastic, conveniently located near a stop on the Blue Line making it easy to get both the city and the venue. The rooms were comfy with great bathrooms. Having readily available breakfast food is genius, because isn't this the hardest meal to deal with while travelling? All of our interactions with the hosts were informative and pleasant. Thank you again!
