  • The apartment was fine but my sole issue revolves around temperature control, which is unfortunately not something Katya can control. In short: one temperature control for several parties of people causes problems. Because several people were staying in the apartment, there were real disagreements (friendly, of course) about temperature.

    We stayed in June so it was over 80F at night but the person in the neighboring room didn't want any AC (he thought it was too loud and cold). So even when we tried to set the AC at a moderate temperature like 72 or 74, he would turn it off in the middle of the night. So, basically, lots of sweaty, uncomfortable nights.

  • The apartment is in the University Village neighborhood of Chicago, a few minutes walk from a Blue Line train station. Katya was waiting for us at the apartment as she said she would. She helped us get acquainted with the room and told us that any food in the kitchen was available to us for breakfast. The apartment is very clean and the bed was comfortable. Our daughter was with us and she slept on an airbed on the floor in the bedroom. We were told there were other guests in the the other bedrooms but we never heard them or saw them. It was a nice place to stay for a couple of days and we enjoyed walking through the University of Illinois that was a couple of blocks away. There are lots of restaurants nearby. We recommend Parthenon, a delicious greek restaurant that stays open late at night. We definitely recommend this listing.

  • The room was all good and as per description. I am not sure if it was mentioned in the description but the host DOES NOT stay there and runs this place like a guest house. I did not find the public transport to be as conveniently located as described.
    It is probably technically downtown, but I think its better if you do your own research on the location before booking.

    I have to say the host was very attentiveto my needs inspite of not living there and was available on sms all the time and came home at check in, check out and in the middle I had some problem so she came home immediatedly to explain the usage of an appliance.

    If you are looking for a personal touch then probably not your place, else it's very functional and nice. Also, in the same apartment, there is a room with an attached toilet that she offers as well. You may want to check on that as well.

  • Katya was a great host! Room was neat and spacious. Would definitely book Katya again when traveling back to Chicago. Thanks!

  • I never met Katya, but everything was acceptable. Bring your own detergent!

  • This was my first ever experience with airbnb and first for this USA tour as well. The room was clean. The location and surrounding environment was quite which I loved the most. Thanks to Katya for having me as a guest.

    In general from my last two weeks of experience with four airbnb hosts, I felt that the presence of the host at least at the moment of check-in and check-out will significantly improve the experience. Tourists like me have lots of queries. For example: I needed a glass of water. I wanted to know when breakfast will be provided? Who will clean the kitchen after having breakfast? (I brought & prepared my own breakfast and cleaned the plate), Is it safe to keep my luggage as I don't see anyone in the apartment?

    May 2014
  • The location of her place was only 3m from downtown which was perfect for us. The bed was super comfy too. Katya greeted us warmly, showed us around everything was as stated in the ad. Great time!

    May 2014
  • Katya was great! She accommodated a last minute booking - like reservation made at 2:30 the same day last minute. She arranged for me to arrive at my convenience and I met her as I was leaving - she was very nice. The room was perfect- large closet, desk and comfy bed. The room and bathroom were clean. It was a shared bathroom but I never had any issues getting time in the bathroom, which was great. Her place was in the perfect location and there are bikes to rent a few blocks away which was also a great way to get around. The value, location, experience and accommodations are really unbeatable for this area.

    May 2014
  • The neighbourhood was great. It is a short walk to Taylor Street where there are some great restaurants. This is a shared apartment and the room was comfortable and clean. The shared bathroom wasn't so clean on my first night though. Katya responded to my texts and was helpful and generously accommodated my early arrival. Public transport is good - No's 7 and 60 buses downtown and the blue line metro is10 minutes walk away.
