benjamin flat is tip top!even with the music,it s really nice place to be and cosy,with charm.we had great time there and in chicago.easy and quick to go in the center(15 min).it s well (email hidden)njamin was really nice.
Great location in terms of restaurants and the El. However... this is 2 floors above the Double Door bar/club, where there is live music that is VERY loud with deep bass vibrating until 2 a.m. Not conducive to sleeping, if that matters to you. (the loud bar below wasn't disclosed until after we had paid for our stay.) This is very nicely decorated place although there was some dust, the bathroom sink and tub were NOT clean, and there was an odd odor to the place (maybe from cooking or the bar downstairs?). Ben was very responsive and a great host and said we were his first guests so maybe he'll take care of the cleanliness issues in the future. Wicker Park is an awesome place to stay. With the bar below and the El directly outside the window, this was a truly authentic Chicago experience!
Ben came for a long stay which could have been problematic had he not turned out to be such a pleasant human being! Smart, funny & helpful, Ben is the kind of guest one can only hope will find you! I have a new friend and one I hope to keep!
I highly recommend Benjamin as guest and I welcome him back anytime.
