You must stay with Maggie and Hampus! This was my first time visiting Chicago, and I am beyond thankful that I stayed with them. Maggie is the sweetest person you will probably ever meet! She thinks of everything, even the stuff that you forget when traveling. :) When I arrived I had no idea what I would do that week (getting there was hectic), and Maggie spent ample time showing me around the neighborhood. I traveled alone and felt completely safe walking their streets at night. The directions she gives from the airport are so easy and cheap! They have a really nice back entryway where you can enter/exit if you don't want to go through the front. The bagels and coffee were an amazing addition to the stay! The location is perfect! I will probably never stay anywhere else in Chicago. They made my trip so special and I'll never forget all the many memories I made while staying there.
Maggie and Hampus are wonderful. We had a flight delay and came in around 11:30 pm and they were very flexible. We were only there for a few days. We left their home early in the morning and got back late at night (exploring the city all day). They were very accommodating and I would recommend staying with them if you are going to Chicago.
What a delight to stay in the “master suite” of this place. It was pretty much as I had anticipated from the photos. The décor is modern and simple and the place is clean and inviting. It is located in a quiet neighborhood but close to the pulse of Wicker Park.
Maggie greeted me upon arrival and was so gracious. It was a long travel day for me and I welcomed the warm cup of tea offered to me as she acquainted me with everything. I enjoyed the coffee and bagels each morning, and I felt like I was in my own place!
Maggie and Hampus are so polite and personable. I hope to stay with them again when on my future work visits to Chicago.
What an incredible experience! Every review about this place is right on! Hampus and Maggie are genuine hosts who truly want you to have the best experience. We arrived the night of the Oscars and Maggie invited us to watch them out in the living room and even made us a little tray of snack to enjoy! Hampus was very kind and friendly and made us feel so at home! They have tons of info on restaurant suggestions, public transit and things to do around Chicago. This was our first Air B n B experience and we couldn't have been happier! Thank you both for opening your home to us making our stay one to remember!
Excellent hosts and room! Catherine and I loved everything about this spot - the location, the ambiance, the ease of getting in and out. We'd stay with them again, for sure.
Hampus and Maggie are two very incredible people! They are so humble and down to earth and I would recommend anyone to their beautiful home! They have everything you could ever need and more! My girlfriend and I felt so at home being there and we would love to stay there again!
Everything was quite nice! Hampus and Maggie were very friendly and accommodating. Location and neighborhood were perfect for my visit.
