Hampus and Maggie were absolutely fantastic! We were only in town for a night but I wish we could have stayed longer in their lovely abode. Our room was luxurious! They offered us all of the amenities of a luxury hotel stay but with the comfort of a home. They even put out bagels the next morning for breakfast! What a sweet touch. The apartment itself is very accessible to downtown and any area in Chicago that you may be visiting. The room has it's own separate entrance, too, which makes it even more private (though the way the room is situated at the end of the hall, it already feels as though you're in you're own "wing" so-to-speak). Everything they offered was over the top - any/all toiletries you could imagine, nice walk-in closet, comfortable bed, nice light in the morning. This was our first airbnb experience and though it was a short one, Maggie and Hampus made us excited for our next one. Wish we could have stayed the week. They're wonderful!
I would say it is the best b&b experience I've ever had in my life. Maggie and Hampus are such great people that make us feel welcomed and feel like being home. They provided so many useful information about Chicago (especially the beautiful and awesome neighborhood--Wicker Park). The location is quiet and safe, easy to get to anywhere (we took Uber a lot in Chicago, and there are always Ubers nearby, usually less than 5 minutes wait). The house and the room is so authentic and comfortable. Absolutely tidy and clean. We totally enjoy the privacy and everything. You've got everything you need--towels, shower gel, shampoo, water, coffee maker, tooth brush and tooth paste, light, map, breakfast, warmness from Maggie and Hampus, comfortable bed and pillow, a large walk-in closet, private deck with chairs, desk and chair, free parking, etc (numerous awesomenesses). Best one you could ask for. If you're new to Chicago, make sure to explore Wicker Park area! I hope that I could explore more. So many great stores and restaurants. I can't describe more about how awesome Maggie, Hampus, and their place is. Just book with them and see it yourself. I'll definitely book with them again next time I come to Chicago! Made my vacation even better! Thank Maggie and Hampus! You are the best :)
Kaikki toimi sovitun mukaisesti. Maggie ja Hampus olivat hyvin ystävällisiä ja auttavaisia. Oma sisäänkäynti ja terassi oli mukava lisä.
Hampus and Maggie have a lovely home to reflect their warm and inviting hospitality. We were greeted warmly by Hampus in the evening, who was polite enough to walk us to a free parking space. He even insisted on carrying some luggage. Our private room was cozy, and the separate entrance is ideal for those who may like to feel a bit less intrusive to their hosts. Hampus was very helpful, polite, and patient with two ladies unfamiliar with the area. We felt very comfortable. Maggie's presence was well-represented in her design sense and hospitality regime, though we, unfortunately, did not get to meet her due to differing schedules. We wanted for nothing. Hampus diligently resolved parking situation which he had no control over, and was able to get a vehicle moved that was blocking us in. Would stay there again in a heartbeat. Loved the neighborhood, and the lodgings were stellar.
Ich war für 6 Nächte Gast von Maggie und Hampus. Es war phantastisch! Maggie und Hampus sind großartige Gastgeber. Sie haben für alles gesorgt, so dass ich mich rundum wohlgefühlt habe. Das Zimmer war gemütlich, liebevoll eingerichtet und dekoriert, ebenso das Bad. Jeden Morgen stand Frühstück und Kaffee bereit, auch mit Wasser und anderen Getränken wurde ich versorgt. Maggie und Hampus haben viele gute Tipps zu Chicago, sie sind nette Gesprächspartner, aber auch sehr zurückhaltend, wenn man seine Privatsphäre möchte. Die Wohnung liegt sehr ruhig in einer schönen Wohngegend und ist dennoch sehr zentral zu Downtown mit allen Sehenswürdigkeiten (3 U-Bahn-Stationen). Ich kann das Zimmer voll und ganz empfehlen!
We enjoyed our stay. Maggie was very friendly and talkative. She gave us good dining advice. She allowed us to stop in before checkin time to say hello. We ended up staying and chatting with her. Made us feel like we were at home. The light breakfast worked out well for us. Parking in the area was tight so we appreciated the available private parking.
