We had a wonderful stay at the apartment. It was plenty of space for the four of us, and the apartment itself is in a great location. Katherine herself was a lovely host, with great communication before and during our stay. Highly recommended!
Nothing but nice things to say. Location was great. Proximity to, well, everything was great. I think it needs to be mentioned that Gino's East Pizzeria is literally right next door. Building is quiet & well-lit.
Reasonably stocked kitchen for breakfast. Bedroom was comfy & spacious, as was the main room. Pretty much the perfect place to go & see Chicago from, and come back to a comfy place to sleep. Katherine was accommodating to questions about the area, such as convenience stores & parking. Happy to come back, happy to recommend.
The reservation was canceled 2 days before arrival. This is an automated posting.
This is a great apartment and the location was perfect for me. I had meetings and work to do in the Palmer House Hotel and the other Hilton in this neighborhood. It was centrally located to both these spots, surrounded by a nice neighborhood with a lot of restaurants (some of which were quite good), a coffee place, a convenience store, and a reasonable walk to all kind of good eats and drinks.
The apartment itself is cute and cozy, well equipped, very clean, and even though it was very cold the week I was there, the apartment stayed very comfortable. I slept well every night, found the bed very good, and the street noise not a problem at all.
Katherine and I did have some communication problems prior to my arrival. Seeking confirmations and information by message here leading up to the stay produced no reply, and I had some anxiety about flying to Chicago without those confirmations, but we did work it out eventually. I think maybe she was just very busy this time of year, but nonetheless, the communication leading up to and also in my departure could have been much better.
Otherwise however, everything was perfect and I am very grateful for having a nice, secure, and peaceful place to use as home base during what was a very busy and hectic week.
Katherine was the best host... Very nice apartment, top location :-)
We have rented a lot of place's for our vacations. But this is the first time that we have had someone not respond to a problem we had the first day. Their were no bath towels anywhere in the apartment. I texted Katherine and phoned her and did not receive a reply from her at all. Needless to say we were very disappointed with the situation. Other than that it was a good base to explore Chicago from. But I would not recommended it to anyone if they asked me for a place to stay at.
Very good. No issues.
Belle semaine à Chicago
Nous n'avons pas vu notre hôtesse mais tout était parfaitement organisé et elle était joignable au téléphone.
Les indications fournies sur le site étaient de bonne qualité
La description de l'appartement correspond à la réalité : 1 belle chambre avec un lit ultra king-size, un très grand séjour avec un canapé lit pour 2 personnes, une cuisine avec un équipement ménager permettant de cuisiner ou de réchauffer des plats. 2 éléments à noter mais de faible importance, l'absence de micro-ondes, l'absence de télévision.
Quartier calme de downtown un peu bruyant mais tout proche des lignes de métro pour correspondre avec toute la ville et à 300m du lac
Une adresse à recommander
I enjoyed a great stay at Katherine's apartment: She was extremely accommodating of my very late arrival to Chicago (check-in was a breeze), and was kind enough to allow me to leave my bags behind after check-out so I could have another full day to enjoy in the city, unfettered. The apartment is in a great central location (such a close walk to the Art Institute, several restaurants, coffee shops, and attractions), and exactly as described — the bed in particular was extremely comfortable. Would absolutely recommend to others, and hope to visit Chicago and this apt. again soon.
The listing was fairly accurate, although "breakfast provided" was a stretch. The location was very convenient to public transportation and within walking distance to the Art Institute, Millenium Park, and most of the other places we wanted to visit.
Katherine was utterly fabulous. She stated her requirements from the very start and my team & I were happy to be in a position to deliver to her. I would welcome her back any time and gladly recommend her to airbnb anywhere, anytime.
Great guest to have. She is welcome back anytime.
Kate stayed at my place for a couple nights and was a great guest. When she left everything was as in perfect order. She was very good about communicating her arrival and departure as well. I would highly recommend her to other hosts and welcome her back anytime.
Kate was a truly lovely guest. I would welcome her back any time!
Katherine was a perfect guest! Very easy to communicate with. Thank you Katherine! Welcome back to San Diego at anytime!
Katherine seems to be a great girl. Quiet, clean very nice. Another great air b n b guest to come thru our doors!
Kate was an absolutely delightful guest.. Easy to communicate with, flexible and tidy.
I would be delighted to have her stay again in the future.
Katherine arrived later and our daughter Haley greeted her.Tom greeted her in the morning.She was upbeat and a pleasure to host and was curious about the area. We would love to have her as a guest again if she is ever in town.
Katherine was a very fine guest--didn't leave a mess and had no issues whatsoever. Would gladly book again.
Katherine was very nice and very clean.
Kate and I knew each other a little bit in college, but our lives ended up wound up even more after, in the art communities. She engages in community organizing, and is thus well-organized! She loves to travel and will always respond promptly to emails or phone calls.
Katherine is a wonderful lady who will be a joy to host. She has traveled extensively and is a trustworthy person.
