Social Worker from Chicago
Kevin is a great guy, unfortunately we didn't have the chance to chat more! We loved the apartment, the bed and pillows were really comfortable and the location, though it wasn't really close from downtown, was really good since it's meters away from a bus that takes you to the train and it's also within walking distance from a little mall that has everything you need (Target, a nice and unexpensive restaurant, etc). We had a great experience in Chicago!.
I spent a mont here doing a clinical rotation for medical school. The apartment is quiet, easy street parking, and an ideal situation for a med student passing through.
Originally my friend and I agreed to meet Kevin at 5:15pm, but what we didn't realize was that traffic would be so terrible at rush hour! With big rigs and regular vehicles on the road in traffic it took us a little over an hour to get to Kevin's place. By the time we got there, it was well past 7pm but Kevin pleasantly welcomed us in anyway and showed us around the apartment. His home was clean and there were a lot of plants. One afternoon we got back to the apartment and we met Charlotte, his neighbor's cat and she was so loving and sweet! Kevin's neighborhood felt safe and was definitely worth the stay in Chicago. I'd recommend it to anyone that is looking for a great and inexpensive place to stay in town.
The check in process was smooth, even though the host was not home at the time. The apartment, while not big, was very comfy and clean with plants scattered about the place.
Our room was airy, with sunshine during the day and everything you needed for a good night's rest.
Thank you Kevin for a wonderful stay in Chicago!
I had a great stay at Kevin's place. I didn't run into him often, but it was always pleasant when I did. Very comfortable living space!
The Room on Mozart was an amazing experience that I would highly recommend to anyone traveling (short or long term) to Chicago. I was with Kevin for a month and had a very pleasant time. He was very hospitable and also flexible with my check in and check out times. He made me feel more than welcome during my stay. The apartment is so beautiful, clean, and quite spacious. The guest bedroom is much larger than I expected with plenty of storage space. The living room, kitchen, and bathroom were always clean as well. I really enjoyed the Irving Park area and felt very safe walking around at night and even ran a bit around the neighborhood. The place is only a short drive to the Brown line which was great for exploring Chicago and the surrounding areas. I never had a problem with street parking in front of the apartment and there are plenty of restaurants, grocery stores, and a laundry mat near by. Overall, I would go back and stay there in a heartbeat as I really felt at home. Kevin is very easy to talk to and a really great person to share a living space with. All in all, I could not have asked for a better experience. Check it out for yourself.
Mi estancia en casa de Kevin ha sido muy placentera. Kevin es un anfitrión respetuoso y amable. Apenas llegué me dio un mapa y consejos para moverme por la ciudad y utilizar el transporte público. La casa está ubicada en un barrio tranquilo flanqueado por árboles y está a solo 50 metros del bus que conecta con el sistema de trenes para llegar al Loop, a otras atracciones y al aeropuerto. Debido a que nuestros horarios rara vez coincidían, no hemos tenido la oportunidad de conversar mucho, aunque nos arreglamos para estar en contacto por teléfono. Pasé tres días en casa de Kevin sin ningún inconveniente. La habitación es amplia, cómoda y con placard. La casa es muy acogedora con muchas plantas de toda clase y tamaño. Chicago es una ciudad bellísima y sorprendente y he podido disfrutarla profundamente mientras estuve hospedado en casa de Kevin. Gracias Kevin
It was a great place to stay and Kevin is really awesome!! It reminded me of my home full of very happy plants :)
Thank you again for the great place to stay!
Kevin has a a wonderfully light and airy flat with pretty, fragrant plants dotted around. The guest room is clean and spacious with a very decent wardrobe area (bonus for the girls perhaps?).
I was fortunate to have inadvertently crashed a weekend brunch that Kevin was having with his friends and received loads of fabulous recommendations for sights, restaurants, cafes and bars to check out!
It was a short but sweet stay at Kevin's =)
I had a great time at the room on Mozart. The flat and the room look as nice as on the pictures, the whole flat is really green and full of plants. Kevin welcomed me really warmly and gave me good recommendations. We did not have a chance to catch up later, but sure we would have had a great time, as Kevin is really open and fun to talk to. Regarding the location, there is a park nearby, it takes some time to get to the city, but a bus and the train bring you there.
It was another wonderful experience hosting Kevin and his friends for New Year's in Lakeside, and they got the perfect snowfall. He is such a nice person, friendly, easy going, perfect guest. He left the house in great condition, and brought down the towels and linens to the laundry, and I appreciate that so much. He is always welcome back and I recommend him highly to anyone for hosting.
Kevin was a great guest. Took good care of the apartment and communication was always good.
It was a pleasure hosting Kevin and his friends. They were fun and friendly. They left the house sparkling, and I appreciate very much. They are always welcome here and I would recommend them to anyone..
Kevin was a pleasure to deal with as the booking process moved forward, there were a few questions about the home and location which we were glad to answer - and ultimately, he was respectful of our property and left the home in fine shape! So, I would not hesitate to recommend Kevin as a guest in anyone's home... Thanks, Kevin!
Kevin is a friend and I have also stayed with him in Chicago. He was a great host and his apartment was awesome and close to transportation. I would definitely recommend staying with him.
Kevin and I met when we both were residing in Chicago. Apart from being a very good friend, Kevin is one of the kindest, most reliable people I know. Whenever I go back to Chicago to visit I stay with Kevin. He is the perfect host and his home is a short walk to several bus lines and trains. Any potential host or guest would be lucky to meet Kevin!
