Very communicative during the booking and very helpful and pleasant when getting the key. Cute place in great location. Thank you!
Vitaliy provided a perfect place for my partner and I to stay while visiting Chicago. The studio was conveniently located, well kept, and Vitaliy provided those items that are incredibly annoying to travel with (e.g., toothpaste, shampoo, and towels). After long days visiting with friends, the studio was a comfortable and quiet place to return for a few hours of shuteye before heading out again in the morning. On top of all that, Vitaliy was incredibly flexible with our ever-changing ETA. We would stay in Vitaliy's studio again in a heartbeat.
Our stay at Vitaliy's was excellent! He is a very caring and accommodating host, who really goes out of his way to make sure his guests have a great time in Chicago! The apartment is perfect, location is convenient, and I highly recommend him/his apartment! Thank you, Vitaliy!
Sadik and I really enjoyed our stay at Vitaliy's wonderful little apartment! It was toasty and cozy and colorful, which was a good change after a long day in downtown Chicago!
The apartment is very conveniently located, close to transportation and a fairly short train ride to downtown Chicago. I spent the day at the art institute (vitaliys's suggestion! ) and it was lovely! There are also little shops and restaurants near the apartment, we went to dinner at Little India the first night and were pleased.
If Sadik and I find ourselves back in Chicago we hope that Vitaliy's apartment is available!!
Sorry for the late review, however our stay at Vitaliy's apartment was wonderful! Very cozy and comfortable; also, being an artist myself, the fact that his apartment is filled with art and unique decor, made me feel right at home! It's also conveniently located in a great area with plenty to do and see, plus it's just a couple blocks away from public transportation. I highly recommend his place to anyone planning to visit Chicago!
Had a great time in Chicago at Vitaliy's apt. Perfect location to transportation, apt. was everything I needed cozy and clean...would rebook again.
It's obvious from the very first interaction with Vitaliy, that he really cares about your experience. He is quick with his responses and goes out of his way to ensure that you will have everything you need to have a wonderful visit/stay in Chicago. I'm certain that if we lived in Chicago we would love to be friends with this fella. Our stay was wonderful. The studio apartment was stocked with everything you could ever want. (from towels, hairdryer etc. and even a first aid kit!) I think he has thought of everything. We highly recommend Vitaliy as a host for your next stay in Chicago. Thank you, Vitaliy!
Response from Vitaliy:
You are so sweet. I do not doubt your sentiment - great meeting you two, let me know if you're ever back in Chicago. :)
We arrived to Chicago late at night. Vitaly was friendly and suggested a couple of good places to see. His apartment is very cozy. I strongly recommend this place for young couples and those, who loves art (his room reminds of a small gallery!). The place was warm and quiet, although the weather was terrible! Being Russian, we loved his collection of tea. Thank you, Vitaly!
Great experience. Vitaliy was super nice and hospitable. The space had everything we needed and was clean and well-maintained.The houseplants and charming accents throughout the space really made our visit seem more enjoyable and delightful. Would recommend to anyone and would definitely book again if I had another chance.
Vitaliy's place is great! It's very confortable and we really enjoy our stay there! The neighbour is quiet and really pretty!!
Thank you Vitaliy for letting us stay at your apartment! I absolutely recomend it!
Response from Vitaliy:
Thanks for being my 50th review! It was so lovely meeting you - have a fun New Year's Eve in NYC! :)
I recommend Vitaliy and his studio for many reasons.
First, his location is supremely convenient -- a block from the Bryn Mawr stop on the Redline and the Bryn Mawr Historic District which is ten minutes to the beach/lakefront and mere steps from terrific restaurants (e.g., Francesca's, Nookies, That Little Mexican Cafe, and Little India). You Starbucks fanatics will find one a mere block away!
2. Vitaliy is one of the kindest, sweetest, most genuine people you will ever meet. He's very committed to meeting new people from abroad and showing them how amazingly global a city Chicago actually is!
3. My most cherished Chicago neighborhood -- Andersonville -- is a ten minute walk with its focus on mom 'n pop shops, local goods and artists, a great community feeling, AND The Puppet Bike. (website hidden) it or ask a local. You must experience it.
4. Vitaliy's space has the loveliest vibe and terrific energy -- it's clean, simple but comfortable AND it's way less expensive than a hotel. And it will put you in touch with how we Chicagoans actually live everyday!
5. Vitaliy is also my boyfriend, and I love him dearly. You will find him to be a genuinely caring human being who wants to make your stay in Chicago one that is very memorable and enjoyable.
