Check In
perfect location and close to everything you would need :)

Great spot for a weekend stay. Check in/out was quick and easy with well written instructions. The room does get a bit loud with noise from the street below so I would suggest traveling with a pair of ear plugs if you're a light sleeper.

Great location! Very Clean and such an easy, east check in- and out

Super clean,and Super confort,This is the Best Air Bnb place in the world. Thanks a lot!

This today has a very nice location, charming style. It is a bit small, but works really well for a short stay.

The place was super clean and great for our extended weekend in Chicago!

Worth every penny for its location and space. Close to every thing and beautiful space. Highly recommend.

I had an excellent stay at this very cute comfortable welcoming studio in a fantastic area. It was a perfect stay. Communication and instructions were excellent and the price was very reasonable.

Great place to stay and very accessible and in a good location. If you are here for a business trip I’d definitely recommend this as it checks all the boxes. The place is clean and has everything that you’d need during a business trip. Loved using their gym and lobby for getting workout and work done.

Great location and homey feel, a little studio apartment in the city. I felt safe coming and going while solo. It was the perfect, comfy home base for my travels. Appreciated the Scrabble game!

Excellent space, amazing hosts, and all around wonderful experience. Loved the Foxtrot Market downstairs. Highly recommend!

Book it now! My stay at this location was superb; the host was easy to reach and responded to my inquiries in a timely fashion. The host thought of everything you will need to make your stay as homely as possible. towels, easy guide for navigating the city, lots of shampoo and conditioner, washer/dryer, coffee/tea set, coffee pot, did I mentioned towels? bonus points for the brita water filtration pitcher, I saved so much money on not buying bottled water for my stay, down the street from the red and blue line, and the wireless key entry to the place is a nice feature: you need it to get into the building, then the elevator, then your room, so I never felt unsafe while here. on a scale of 0-100 with 100 being the best. this place is a well deserved 100. other posts have mentioned somewhat negatives things about this place, and I would agree with some, but you can't penalize ShortStay as some of those things are out their control. city construction was there but since I was out and about for most of the day so that wasn't an issue. there are other tenants in this building, and you can hear them shuffling late at night walking their dog or passing by in the hallway. not a big deal as that doesnt last more than a few seconds. this are some things that you may notice while staying here, again i didnt penalize ShortStay for this

Nice studio, great location, good price for the area. Would definitely stay again!

We had everything we needed for our stay, and the studio was within walking distance of everything! Great coffee and snacks were just next door.

Bon emplacement à 1,5 km du lac , métro Chicago tout prêt, studio bien équipé, très bonne réactivité de l Hôte. manque juste un deuxième fauteuil si vous êtes à deux.

Small but comfortable space with a great location. Countless restaurants and attractions within walking distance.

We were extremely pleased with our choice to stay at the moonlight sonata flat. Proximity to anything in the downtown/river north area was perfect. This flat has everything you need and more; we will stay here again.

You will not be disappointed with this stylish and well located AirBnb! Not only was the unit sparkling clean and well appointed, but the building's location was unbeatable! The hosts communicated promptly and kindly, making our first experience with AirBnb seamless. We would book this spot again in a heartbeat!

My daughter and I loved staying at the Moonlight Sonata. It is close to public transportation and walking distance to the lake, many restaurants and opportunities for shopping. There was a white noise machine on the night stand to help drown out the noise of the city...worked well. Highly recommend this place and will stay here again in the future.

Great location! Bring earplugs—the downtown noises can get super loud at night. The room is small and quaint—perfect for one or two people. The gym is great, all the equipment I could possibly need. The thing that makes this apartment great is the location. It’s a 5 min walk from all sorts of places like coffee shops, hot dog/burgers, steakhouses, etc. If you decide to Uber/Lyft, beware that the location can be hard for the drivers to find so be descriptive in your pickup location. Otherwise, great stay and great hosts. They were super quick at responding and accommodating! This was my first airbnb and I’m so glad they were my first experience!

Wonderful clean room and fun rooftop space!

Amazing spot! Perfect for 1 (or 2) travelers. The apartment was extremely clean (so was the building), the bed very very comfortable, and great location. The apartment is a little on the small side but if you need to do any work or just hang out, the common areas are superb! I would 100% stay here again. Oh and the shower pressure and hot water were fabulous.

Good location, very clean.

Great place. Perfect location to the L and restaurants. Everything was clean and comfortable! Def. Recommend

The location and features of this place were great! Close to covered parking, local eats, and even had a cool market downstairs. We really enjoyed the gym and feel of luxury in the lobby. Only wish we would have brought ear plugs for the city sirens that go off at night!

First of all, the apartment is gorgeous. Really nice and clean, cozy bed, plentiful hooks in the bathroom (which never happens), and well-appointed. I actually thought it looked better than the photos. Location was great. Downsides: I visited during an in-between season in Chicago, where it gets hot during the day and cold at night. There is a unit you can temperature control in the room, but apparently the building controls whether it is set to heat or cool?? That's what I was told at least after trying repeatedly to turn on the a/c at night but the only thing that would work was the heat. Had to sleep with the window open, which was fine, but not ideal given the street noise. We also had some miscommunication regarding the ability to drop off our bags prior to check-in. I asked repeatedly for instruction, and provided my estimated time of arrival on numerous occasions, and was finally told I could leave our bags with the front desk. Turns out that is not at all the case, and resolving this issue took 30+ minutes while waiting around (hangry) in the lobby. All that to say, the apartment was lovely enough to make up for some minor hiccups, just don't try to check in your bags early.

Really nothing to complain about here, everything was great. Location of the place is pretty bomb, cheap parking garage right around the corner, the rooftop and lounge are nice for a little break from the city, the apartment itself was spotless and perfect for a short stay, easy access in and out of the building, dog friendly, and the contact responded quickly during check-in. 10/10 would recommend.

Good place close to downtown fun

Perfect for 1-2 people. Shower gel, shampoo, and conditioner provided. Shower pressure was amazing. Very clean space.

This place is absolutely gorgeous, and the location is fantastic - tons of great restaurants/bars within walking distance, and really at the center of everything if you want to explore the Loops, Logan Sq, the beach, etc. Communication was absolutely top-notch, we felt like we had a personal assistant anticipating what we needed. The building is beautiful, and everyone we came into contact with was friendly! Take an eyemask - the room gets beautiful sunlight, but if you like to sleep past sunrise an eyemask will be your best friend. Will definitely be back!

Great place to stay. Stylish yet comfortable. Great location.

This place is great, getting spothero if you drive your own car here saved me a headache. It was only like $40 for the weekend. It was clean, had all the things we needed in regards to dishes and shower stuff. They also have a market with all kinds of alcohol and healthy food so that should be covered for anyone too. The view is great outside the window but a little loud if you're not used to city life. It's only like 18 mins away from anything downtown and the Ubers are fast and cheap.

It was an amazing place! I will gladly stay there again. It was super clean, had amazing amenities, and every one who worked at the front desk was super nice . If you use Uber eats it will get delivered straight to your room!

Outstanding location, easy check in and out, clean and well-appointed studio, comfortable bed. Street light and noise is fairly considerable however. You'll want ear plugs and an eye mask. Also, the work space is very tight, and doubles as a dining spot. Not possible to fit both a laptop and a plate.

A great location near the train allowed us to get all over very easily. The place was well kept and perfect for our stay. Check In was simple and the area is safe and clean.

The Moonlight Sonata was an incredible spot to stay for our quick weekend excursion to Chicago. The building is ideally located for making day trips around the city and the room was immaculately clean upon arrival. I will definitely be staying with Livly the next time I come to Chicago.

The apartment is very elegant and private. It has great amenities! The location is close to downtown, easy for exploring the city.

Livly may have been the greatest Airbnb expirience I have ever had ! The team was extremely responsive to all my questions and everything was seamless from check in to check out. The space was BEAUTIFUL. Pictures do not do this space justice! You have all the little essentials you need in your room so you never have to leave. The location was prime and perfect for traveling to Chicago. I will be booking again in the near future and it will be another Livly unit !

Great place and excellent location.

This apartment is beautiful, simple and PEACEFUL!! Exactly what I needed for a quick getaway. I recommend this spot

Great, clean place in fantastic location!!

Felt like I was in a hotel and it felt like an apartment which is nice!
