Check In
This airbnb space was perfect for my trip to Chicago. The location was perfect and the view was spectacular. It’s a small space, but it was the perfect size for one person. The building itself is stunning and has lots of cool features and amenities, and it’s close to lots of great food options. I would definitely stay here again when I make it back to the city!

If you want a cool place to stay in an awesome building then this is the ticket. Coffee shop, diner, and hip bar all in the lobby! And the flat itself is perfect. Clean, provides everything you need, easy to access, and has wonderful views. Will definitely book again in the future. Many thanks!

Definitely would stay here again. We were in town for a concert at the Aragon ballroom which is only 3 short blocks away. Excellent location. Tons of food and bars nearby. The hosts have a large list of local recommendations which was awesome. Place was super clean and the private balcony was awesome with a perfect view of the lake. Building has lots of amenities, pool , gym, roof top lounge and everything you need in the unit. The building also has a cocktail bar, diner, and a coffee shop. Definitely would book again.

Anyone that’s looking to booking a great Airbnb this is the one, small but absolutely cozy and beautiful. Amazing balcony view , wonderful bathroom, nice speaker , strong internet , and comfortable couch and pull out mattress.

We were in town for a conference at McCormick Place and wanted to stay in a nice area but have a thoughtless commute. This place was a block from the red line and very reasonably priced which is why we selected it. It had pretty much everything we needed (coffee machine and grounds! A fan! A washing machine and detergent!) plus more (amazing lake view! Coffee shop and lobby for getting work done! Cute neighbor dogs!). We felt very much at home. We are still on the fence about tiny living but it was perfect for our trip. My only recommendation would be to bring an eye mask as there are lots of lights on all the electric things, like the microwave and air unit.

Clean and quiet with a great private deck and access to amazing amenities at this wonderfully rehabbed 1920s building. Would highly recommend if you're looking for a place to "hang out" for a few days. If you're going to be out and about and only looking for a place to sleep, the foldout sofa bed might be mildly disappointing considering the price tag. Overall, though, a really enjoyable experience.

Everything you need when you are exploring the city. Pretty small in size, but equiped with everything necessary and very clean. If you are a light sleeper you will have problems with the noise from the hallway.

The apartment space was very cute and clean. I loved the view from the outdoor space. The apartment is a short two minute walk to the train so it was very convenient for getting around town.

My boyfriend, dog, and I had a wonderful stay! Great location for what we wanted to do and the view from the balcony was an excellent surprise. We had a small issue with the elevators not going to the top floor but other than that, a positive experience. Would definitely stay again!

What a charming place.they have a bar and restaurant (Website hidden by Airbnb) of cool people everywhere and ideal for quick visits to Chicago. Rooftop is romantic and there are lots of convenient things around.kfc, bp.small store..etc. The only thing you might not like is the noise that the neighbors make when taking the elevator which is right at your doorsteps.but if you are a hard sleeper...then you should be fine. Also,they have great amenities... toothbrush,shampoo.laundry detergent...and even a Bluetooth speaker... Airbnb at it's best

I really loved the location. The balcony is absolutely wonderful and I really enjoyed the gym and the pool. So glad I picked this place for my stay

Cozy place with a beautiful view, near coffee shops and restaurants.

This cute micro apartment is a perfect short stay for one to two guest. The sofa bed is relatively comfortable. The balcony is an excellent size. The pool is very large, the gym is classic with an old style vibe to it. The rooftop hangout was fun with great views. Overall the apartment is stylish and clean.

We had a great stay. What really stood out for us was the gym in the basement, and the balcony off the room. Really great for relaxing on a beautiful day. Also really fast at responding to any questions we had. Would definitely stay again.

The best was the location, it very near to the public transportation and we think the department had a good relation price - value. We received clear instructions for our check in and check out (it was very easy to handle).

This hip and micro air bnb is super stylish, affordable, clean, and convenient. The amenities with the place are awesome; including an in unit washer/dryer, mini kitchen (fridge, microwave, stove, sink), small outdoor patio, pretty sizable TV, and an awesome fold out couch that was surprisingly, quite comfortable! I recommend this air bnb if you're visiting Chicago. It's about a 10 min drive to downtown and uptown area is super cute. Communication and check in process with the Short Stay hosts went well!

We loved staying here! It was more than what we expected--the apt was very stylish and accommodating to many needs. The private deck was wonderful and the building's amenities were great! We would book this again and probably will!

Thanks so much...great space and best location.

Small, but INCREDIBLE space! The view is AMAZING! Really comfy bed, great linens, cute kitchen area, and so convenient to have a bar AND coffee shop on the ground floor! Loved it and would definitely stay again!!

We loved Livly’s place!! It totally worth it! It was so clean and nice. The building itself has a lot of fun amenities! I would definitely recommend this place and come back visit again!!

Great Place!!

Beautiful view and a very clean

It was a great experience! everything is organized very well you have nothing to worry about! If you have any questions, the owner is always in touch and responds very quickly! The apartment is very cozy and comfortable! I would put 20 points out of 10!

This is well worth your money. Would definitely recommend. Yes. It is small. And its not an actual bed. But we slept fine and its super cozy. The view from the private balcony is AMAZING! Theres a deck loft and a bar within the hotel. Everything is in walking distance including parking and public transportation. Everyone is polite and friendly and the puppers around the hotel are adorable. We forgot toothbrushes the first night and they actually had disposable ones on hand. How thoughtful. ! So glad we chose this spot. They even came and checked if everything was okay and working properly. So happy with our stay. 10/10 recommend!
