Check In
The Airbnb was very central and walkable to everything we needed during our stay! A 10 minute walk to the Magnificent Mile and about a 25 minute walk to Cloud Gate. Lots of food around the neighborhood so you don’t have to worry about that. Check in and out is simple. The bnb itself was clean and everything I needed was available. The only thing was because it is a dog friendly apartment, we did wake up in the middle of the night and early morning because of a puppy barking and whining next door. But other than that, everything else was awesome!

My stay was fantastic. Cozy for two. It was just as pictured in the listing, walking distance to many nice places in the city, and the bed was beyond comfortable. The hosts were extremely kind, communicative and hospitable. Would definitely recommend and stay again. Thank you so much! :)

Great location! The building was centrally located and close to shopping and restaurants. We loved the gym and the little market nextdoor

We had a wonderful stay at Italian serenade. The directions for arrival were straight-forward and communication was sufficient. The only issue we had was that one of the key fobs didn’t work, (but the other did) and we got a response right away when we emailed about it. The location was great for sight seeing and in a safe neighborhood. We were able to walk or take the L easily to everything we wanted to do! Lots of good bars and restaurants in the area. The room was comfortable and clean. We were very happy with everything!

This is an amazing place, comfortable and welcoming, with great coffee. The bathroom is very spacious. Great location and easy access to public transport, or you can just walk everywhere.

Perfect for a short stay! The hosts were extremely communicative from the get-go. The building is safe, check in was straight forward as per their instructions. The bed was extremely comfortable, the shower had awesome pressure and all of the furniture was in excellent condition. The location was perfect in that it was close to Mag Mile, there is a market on the ground floor for coffee and food and a liquor store around the corner. You're situated walking distance from SO many great spots (Blue Chicago!) and can easily catch a Lyft. We used SpotHero and parked our car safely in a covered garage 1 block away overnight. They provide a white nose/sound machine, as Chicago Ave is pretty noisy, but we slept great! Curtains around the bed kept light out, but the other curtains are sheer, so keep that in mind if you need total darkness and quiet to sleep. Otherwise, this spot is pristine and I'd definitely stay here again for its perfect little set up, easy accessibility, cleanliness, fantastic communication, safety of the building and overall comfort of our stay.

Beautiful studio stay, and the interior was by far better then most hotels I've stayed at. Be warned that this stay is right off Chicago Avenue downtown. I knew Chicago Avenue was a busy street when I booked this ( i used to live in Chicago for 5yrs), but did not anticipate just how loud it would be. You can hear the bus stop announcement every 15min and hear every siren throughout the night. Luckily I had my noise canceling headphones, which helped tremendously, but obviously not ideal to wear all night. On the flip side, this location is good for walking to Michigan Avenue, major train stops, and food downtown.

The apartment was beautiful, and in a great location for walking or catching the train to wherever we needed to go. We were so comfortable our entire stay, and we even got to enjoy the lovely rooftop view!

The place is nice and comfy! The location is really good and the mini market downstairs makes it perfect! Perfect spot to walk and enjoy Chicago! Thank you!!

Es un lugar muy ubicado y fácilmente te puedes desplazar a cualquier lugar y cerca hay supermercado y servicios

Excellent home for Chicago Downtown, nice furnitures and well equipped.

Super easy check in and out, super clean and hip. The bed was really comfy. Loved the roof top. Close to everything, loved the offee shop / market attached, very convenient and extremely friendly. 10 of 10 would recommend this stay.

Great location, secure, lots of nice amenities (coffee!!!). It’s a super cute studio and exactly as pictured. The roof top lounge area has spectacular views.

Nice spot and fantastic communication!

Great overall stay! Very nice and stylish apartment.

What a beautiful space, in a historic building- all with modern amenities! The unit is lovely, spacious, and sparkling clean. The bed is comfy, the shower strong and refreshing, and the kitchen area just perfect for a quick stay, or for preparing a full meal! Can't say enough about what a great place to stay this really is. And the climate control works beautifully! A must for a comfortable stay. We'll be back!

Great location, stylish design, adequate space.

Loved this stay! Easy check-in and out, this apartment was spotless, well appointed and in an excellent location for shopping and dining. I used Spot Hero for parking with ease. I would stay again!

A lovely apartment.. super clean and nicely laid out. Centrally located, easy to walk to lots of Chicago mainstays. The building is very nice and secure and there’s a connected market/cafe with everything you need. Highly recommend staying here! Thank you for being great hosts :)

Very cute accommodations! So central to many Chicago attractions and the hosts were very responsive throughout our stay.

Beautiful place and very clean. The bed is the BEST bed we’ve ever slept in, EVER! So comfy! Thanks for having us. Would definitely stay again

A great appartment, really well turned out, perfect location and the roof terrace was the perfect retreat for a balmy Chicago evening.

Safe, stylish and just spectacular. My husband and I stayed here for our honeymoon and absolutely loved it! We were in a very safe area where we could walk to anything. There is a charming market downstairs that had anything we needed—coffee, toothpaste, gifts, etc. Highly recommend!!

Could not have asked for a better location! And to top it off, the place was adorable and had the most comfortable bed and pillows ever. Will definitely try to stay again when visiting Chicago.

Great location and super nice & clean apartment! 10/10 recommend!

A great experience from start to finish. It feels like a professional community of motivated and talented people living and fellowshipping in a shared experience. Privacy was available when needed and the front staff were of the highest caliber. Would highly recommend for work starts or a couple's getaway.

My friend and I loved staying here the location was perfect and the apartment felt safe and was super clean. Our only complaints were were that the shower wouldn’t stopping dripping and the sound was super irritating. Also one of the window shades was broken so the sunlight woke us up early. Other than that the everything was great and the people helping us out were super accommodating.

This space was super stylish, comfortable, and clean. The location was perfect for our trip--very accessible to restaurants, stores, downtown, etc. The check-in and check-out process was very easy. It was a great place to come back to at the end of a busy day! We loved it, and would definitely recommend!

Great location, amazing amenities and lots of things to give you peace of mind. As a business traveler, this gave me everything I wanted and more. Will definitely look to use their properties when I'm in Chicago, no matter for work or pleasure.

Rooftop is cool!

Stylish apartment in a great location!

This place was amazing. It was super cute, and so convenient to everything, literally no more then a 15 minute walk to most everything we wanted to see.

We really enjoyed our stay at the Italian Serenade! The room was stylish and had all of the things we needed. The location was great and the gym in the basement of the building was awesome!

My stay in Chicago was excellent. The Airbnb itself was clean and stylish and the area was great. It was also extremely easy to get in touch with the host. Definitely recommend staying here!

This is a wonderful studio. The room is bright, pristine and comfortable. The building is stylish and in a great location. The hosts gave detailed instructions and were very quick to respond. There's also a gym and a nice convenient store inside the building. I would definitely stay here again.

Had a great time at Livly’s place and in Chicago. Great location! Foxtrot is wonderful and convenient. Stylish space! Little bit of construction outside our window which made it a little hard to sleep but no one can prevent that Place was clean other than a few places that needed some touch ups. Overall, it was nice and and we enjoyed our stay. We would definitely stay there again.

Great place, great location. Beautiful building

The space was spectacular and easy to access. Loved the location and really enjoyed the market at the bottom of the building. The entire experience was incredible.

We had a wonderful time at Livly’s Italian Serenade! They were always prompt to answer any questions I had and gave us some tips for parking around the city! We will definitely be back the next time we visit Chicago!

Great accommodation. Nice location that is centrally located to a lot of great stuff to do!

This place was amazing. Awesome location to do things within the downtown area! Such a cozy room.
