Loved this place. Incredibly close by bus (the 65 and 66, 2 minutes walk from apartment) goes DIRECTLY to navy pier and the Chicago blue line train goes all over the loop and out. Location was amazing, I don’t think we were on public transport for more than 20 minutes most places…

So much for trusting my fiancé to clean the place for me. Guess that won’t be happening again.... I suggest you don’t trash your hosts towels at your next AirBnB. It’s not appreciated; they’re not disposable. Thank you for reimbursing me however.

I had a great time in Helen’s place. It was close to downtown and there were a lot of good cafes and restaurants close to her house. She is an artist and her house has lots of beautiful paintings everywhere. The room was clean and quiet. Also, Her cat is nice and friendly.

Staying in Chicago at Helen and Jeff's place was a great experience. They are both kind and hospitable with open communication. The location was very central to downtown and the easy to use subway line. Can't wait to visit again. Go CUBS/SOX Go.
