The Space

Waking up to a breathtaking view of Lake Michigan in downtown Chicago is not always an expensive travel experience! If you just need a cozy sofa bed to sleep after a busy day out in Chicago, then our spacious living room with the lovely view is THE place you are looking for.

We offer a queen-size sofa sleeper in the living room of our newly-decorated and luxerious apartment. We respect your privacy and we provide a room divider to create your own space!

Facilities include:
Shared bathroom (we provide hair dryer)
40-Inch Internet-enabled TV to watch movies and listen to music
High speed Wi-Fi Internet
In-unit washing/dryer machines (yes, you don’t need to pay extra money for your laundry)
Steam iron
Kitchen (Fridge, toaster, microwave, stove, kettle and different types of tea!)
The building has 24-hour doorman and there is a fitness center and a outdoor pool available
Parking is $25 for 24 hours

Located conveniently in South Michigan Avenue, our building is within a few minutes walk to the Roosevelt Station (which serves RED, GREEN and ORANGE lines). You will be close to all the attractions: walking distance to the Shedd Aquarium, Field Museum, Adler Planetarium, Art Institute and Millennium Park; a short bus ride to Navy Pier, the Willis Tower, and the John Hancock Observatory, and shopping places like Magnificent Mile and Water Tower. And if you are in the mood for Chinese, China Town is just one stop away by train.

How to get here:
From O'hare airport, you can take the Blue Line (to Forest Park) to Jackson, get off and change to Red Line (To 93rd) and get off at Roosevelt (2 stops). (1hr)
If you take a taxi, it costs about 40-50 dollar and takes about 30 min.
From Midway airport, you can take the Orange Line (to Loop) directly to Roosevelt. (36-min)

Overall Guest Satisfaction
Check In
  • I really enjoyed stay with Yimian and Anas. They are so friendly enough to take me out for dinner at first night. Also, I emphasize how this venue is nice and convenient. The place is very close to any of must-see venues in Chicago.

  • Y i mian and her roommate are great! She gave some advise of my tour and recommend many interesting things to me. That's very helpful! We had a great Italian food together and she bring me to the navy pier to see fireworks! The view of the apartment is fantastic and the location is awesome! Very close to Field museum and Shedd aquarium! We can even see navy pier from the window of the room. There is a brunch restaurant just beside the building. The taste is very good.

  • Awesome location! Very safe and convenient with the museum campus literally across the street. There's a Trader Joe's just around the corner and you can easily catch public transport from Yimian's apartment from nearby bus stops and train stations. Yimian and Anas are friendly, helpful and respectful of my personal space and privacy. I'd recommend their place to anyone visiting Chicago.

  • Great people, great location and an amazing view. The hosts are very accommodating and were very considerate about privacy given that you're staying on a futon in their living room.
