the place is terrific, convenient to downtown--20 minutes to millenium park and the museums by express bus 3 minutes away, and the apartment is lovely and we were left on our own mostly which was terrific, after a hearty introduction and help by Noa.
Some things that could problematic. If the street noise bothers you just close the window and it will be quiet.
The apartment is three flights up. which is a strenuous climb with luggage and lastly the bedroom is already so full of he hosts stuff that it leaves little room for generous unpacking. It works but is a bit annoying.
Hint: Don't miss the miniature rooms at the Art Institute: a hidden treasure.
Really enjoyed our stay with these lovely ladies. Noa was great and even dropped us into town on her way to the airport. The local area is lovely, and there is a wholefoods nearby--which saved us a lot of hassle. The road is a bit noisy with traffic noise--but i guess that is to be expected in a big city. And PS the bed was a dream---sooo comfortable.
Great place, great neighborhood, great city! Noa and Jackie were both friendly and informative, and the room was well-stocked with magazines and guides to Chicago. It's a short walk to the metro station, and there are many terrific restaurants and bars on nearby Broadway Street. Oh, and the bed was very comfortable too! If you want to visit Chicago and see more than the center of downtown, this place is perfect.
Me and my boyfriend John stayed with Noa and Jackie and found them to be absolutely lovely, helpful and accomodating. they made us feel at home and are both really cool chicks. We'd stay here again :)
We had a great stay w/ Noa & Jackie-- the location is perfect, blocks from Wrigley Field, the Chicago Diner (my fave) & the Red Line. The space was clean & comfortable. We had plenty of privacy, but felt welcome to ask questions. The apartment building is on a busy street, so its a little loud at night. We'd stay w/ them again!
First of all I want to thank Noa and Jackie, these girls are awesome! We stayed 4 days and we felt like home. We had a private room very cosy, we could use their kitchen.
When we came the first day we found 2 chocolates on our bed and we really appreciated this kind attention, then Noa took her time to show us the area and she kindly offered us to drop us off at Michigan Avenue.
The area is safe and we found everything we needed (supermarket, pubs, restaurants, metro station, bus (email hidden)d above all a Whole food!!! :-)
They really did their best to help us to find what to see and to visit in Chicago…and thanks for the Hancock Tower's bar tip!
Anyway I highly recommend this place! Thank you guys ;-)
Tout d'abord je tiens à remercier Noa et Jackie, ces filles sont géniales! Nous sommes restées 4 jours et nous nous sommes senties comme à la maison. Nous avions notre propre chambre qui était vraiment confortable, et nous pouvions nous servir de la cuisine.
Quand nous sommes arrivées le premier jour nous avons trouvé 2 chocolats sur notre lit, et nous avions vraiment apprécié cette attention. Puis Noa a pris de son temps pour nous montrer le quartier and nous a gentiment offert de nous déposer sur Michigan Avenue.
On se sent en sécurité dans ce quartier et nous avons trouvé tout ce dont nous avions besoin (supermarché, pubs, restaurants, station de métro, stations de bus and surtout le Whole Food)
Elles ont vraiment tout fait pour nous aider à trouver ce qu'il fallait voir et visiter à Chicago…et merci pour le bon plan du bar du Hancock Tower.
Je recommande vivement cet endroit! Merci les filles ;-)
