Matt was very welcoming and helpful (didn't meet Emily) and the apartment was great and exactly as pictured. Fantastic neighborhood. All in all a great experience.
I had a great time with Matt and Emily in Chicago. They are both sweet and interesting people; clearly, they are used to being hosts. The listing itself was warm and cozy, with lots of handmade trinkets and artwork spread around the house. For us, the location was great: we were within a 10-15 minute drive of anywhere we wanted to go. My only complaint is that the house was a bit colder than I would have hoped. This isn't a huge criticism, especially because we just felt bad about asking them. Knowing Matt and Emily, I'm sure they would have obliged. Overall, it was a great stay and I hope to come back here soon.
This place was awesome! Matt & Emily were fantastic- very accommodating, very welcoming, and all around extremely cool people. Matt even loaned us his guitar, shared some of his private garage beer stash with us, and invited us to a Seder dinner party! The apartment was spacious, clean and nicely decorated, with more than enough room for our family of four, as well as space (and dishes!) for an impromptu Easter dinner party, and even a few toys to keep our little guys occupied. The backyard was a very nice addition, as we were lucky enough to have a few days of good weather during our stay, and the location was perfect too- close enough to everything but also far enough away to provide some peace & quiet and relatively easy street parking (and the beer & wine store down the street is definitely not to be missed if your a craft beer fan). Overall, we had a great stay here, would highly recommend it, and will definitely be getting back in touch with Matt next time we visit Chicago!
Oh my gosh! I have nothing but positive things to say about this place! Matt was such a great host! I had a fire in my condo building, and didn't have a place to stay. Matt showed such compassion and empathy towards my situation. This was my first airbnb experience, and certainly won't be my last. Truly, an unforgettable experience. Also, the place was lovely, and more importantly, he was so responsive with any question I had. Overall, you won't regret booking this place!!! You'll have a great experience!
Matt was very accommodating and we had no trouble finding our way into the house even though he couldn't be there when we arrived. The neighborhood is pretty sweet with some cute shops and fun restaurants. The location worked well for us as our daughter lives just one neighborhood over. We had no troubles finding a place to park very close to the house.
Matt and Emily were wonderful and welcoming. Very comfortable, homey, beautiful place to stay. Great neighborhood. In anticipation of the birth of our first grandchild Matt was super accommodating when assisting me in figuring out possible dates of arrival/departure. Communication was excellent. Thank you! We hope to come back frequently.
Cookie! We loved having you stay with us. Please come back anytime!!!
Staying at Matt's place was absolutely the best choice we could have made! The location was EXCELLENT, the home was SUPER and Matt made sure we had everything we needed! We would definitely come back!!
Thanks Patrice, I am really glad you guys had such a great time staying with us. We love hosting and it is always wonderful when someone appreciates the work we put into it! Come back anytime!
The space was wonderful! I spent a weekend here with five ladies to celebrate a bachelorette party, and Matt and Emily were very accommodating and flexible with check-in/check-out. The beds were comfortable, and the spacy really felt like home. The location is great: you are within a cozy Chicago neighborhood, but never far from public transit so getting anywhere in the city is super straightforward.
I would not hesitate to recommend staying at Matt and Emily's, and would stay here again in a heartbeat. Thank you so much for the hospitality.
Thanks for the kind words Nicole- we absolutely love the neighborhood and are so happy we get the opportunity to share it with everyone. Next time I will take you and the ladies on a bike adventure!
We had a great stay. Matt was very accommodating and made sure we had everything we needed. The space was clean and spacious, neighborhood was quiet, and parking was never an issue. We will stay here again and reccomend to friends and family visiting the area.
Molly- glad you had a good stay. Please come back anytime!
This was our 2nd stay here and it was as easy and comfortable as our 1st. Our hosts are friendly and generous with their time if needed. The neighborhood is quiet yet convenient to shopping, restaurants and bars as well as zone-free parking.
Come back again!!! Like in bowling, it will be a turkey!
Matt and Emily are super cool, super chill guests. Really loved them and they are welcome back anytime.
Thanks Heidi! We loved your place.
Anytime! Thanks for a great place to stay!
Matt & Emily were the perfect guests. It was as if they were never even here! My only regret is that I was not around long enough to get to know them better. I'd welcome them back any time.
Matt and Emily were a very nice couple. They seemed like they would be fun to hang out with. They left the room and bathroom clean and locked up the house just as we asked(since we were at work when they left). They even came out back to meet our chickens and talk hops. They communicated their arrival time and plans with us well. I would recommend them to anyone.
Matt & Emily were so adorable! Warm and funny, they are welcome back anytime.
The room was very clean as well.
Thanks for staying with us!

While staying at the Hotel Posada del Sol, the Host remained consistent behavior to Guests Airbnb. He maintained excellent discipline in the hotel, respectful and polite. We hope your stay in our Hotel Posada del Sol, has been satisfactory, as it was for the workers of the hotel who were associated with it. We hope you visit us again and if you can recommend us to your friends and family.
Grateful for all: Hotel Posada del Sol
Matt is very interesting guy! I enjoy spend breakfast time with him! I wish he will come back with his wife!, kind and respectfull.
Matt and Emily were wonderful guests! I would happily host them anytime and would recommend them to future hosts.
I know Matt from high school. If i had to choose a host/guest to recommend for airbnb, matt would be top on the list. I mean, he went to clown school!!!! How can this guy not be an entertaining individual? I think it would be safe to say that you would miss out not having Matt as a host or a guest at your place!
Matt (and the entire Roben clan) are the epitome of hospitable. We've been friends for over 20 years, and Matt continues to be one of the most interesting AND interested guys I know. Meaning - he has amazing stories to tell, but equally important he wants to know some of yours as well. Over the years, I've seen him go through the awkward teen years to the upstanding young adult years - and been lucky enough to get to know his other half, Emily, along the way who is also a 'keeper'. When a recent business trip brought me to Chicago for a few days, I got to stay with these hosts with the most - which resulted in a very chill atmosphere to get my work done, but great quality hang time as well ... just all, in all really easy people! For this, I would recommend Matt as your host because he's 100% accommodating and you'll have a fun, relaxing trip.
I have known Matt Roben for the past sixteen years. We have performed, traveled, laughed, and cried all over the world together. He is a truly amazing and generous host! I don't say this for many people but Matt is genuinely a "People Person". He is one of the easiest guys to converse and just be around.
Recently I stayed at his home in Chicago for two and a half months. His house is cheerful, clean, and inviting. It's located in a very safe and accessible part of Chicago with some very friendly neighbors.
I would recommend Matt to ANYONE who is clean, honest, and needs a place to lay their weary head.
