We've stayed a lot of nice places during our travels. This place is at the top of our list! With all the hustle and bustle of Downtown Chicago, it was incredible to arrive at Villa D' Citta and be greeted so warmly and checked into such. Outstanding accommodations! We plan to come again one day!
I come to Chicago a few times a year to visit friends and have stayed with Roscoe Village Guesthouse the last 3 times I've been in Chicago. I LOVE RVG and when staying here I'm in my favorite part of town and in the same neighborhood as my friends which works out to be a huge advantage to us all. Accommodations are always top shelf and extremely clean and attractive. Hope to stay with RVG from now on when in Chicago.
This hotel was truly excellent. The staff were extremely friendly. The hotel itself was extremely clean and it felt like "home" for me. Do note, however, that there is no tv or desk in the room. I had to get some work done so I went to a local coffee shop.
Also, I drove to the hotel and parked in one of the streets that was designated a "safe" area to park. I ended up getting a $75 ticket so please beware.
This was the first time I have stayed at a Bed and Breakfast, which exceeded my expectations. The staff were extremely helpful and answered a number of questions for us regarding the area we were staying in. We enjoyed staying at this location and are planning to use the facility again in the near future.
Great place! B&B was very posh and the breakfast was gourmet with lots of options. The B&B was in a great part of town -- tons of restaurants and activities within walking distance. Kitchen was open to guests all day-- a nice bonus!
My husband and I were celebrating our 25th wedding anniversary. We were looking for something beautiful and spectacular to commemorate this spent time and the Villa D' Citta was perfect! Very pleased and we will be back!
The B&B has very nice rooms with private baths and free wi-fi. It's located close to the L (which in fact runs right behind the house). Parking is available for free on the street. They give you a series of day passes for the neighborhood. We had no trouble finding a spot, though the time of year might have had something to do with that. The hosts were quite pleasant and always available for questions.
I stayed at Ruby Room 12-30 and 12-31. The room was beautiful and clean and quiet! The only thing I would say is the mattress was too soft (then again I am one of those people who likes a very firm mattress) and there wasn't a lot of h20 pressure in the shower---so if you're a woman with long hair like me, it will take a long time to shampoo and condition your hair. Other than that, awesome. I'll be back.
Just an FYI to older travelers and/or those with joint problems: this place probably isn't for you due to the stairs. To all others: be sure to pack a bag you can easily pick up and put on your shoulder as you WILL be carrying it up the stairs.
We took a quick trip and stayed in the Wicker Park Room. Did the romantic bonus and got logs for two nights in the fireplace. The room was spacious, lovely. Only drawback was the thin walls - you can hear everything going on around you, but overall the place was quiet, charming and very convenient. I would certainly go back! Hosts are lovely and the area is great!
The House of Two Urns is our first choice, always, in Chicago. The place is artistic and fun and Kapra and Miguel seem to have thought of everything before we know we want it. The free parking and the one block walk to the subway or bus lines makes it easy to get wherever we like. We took Kapras recommendations and explored two great restaurants within an easy walk. The House of Two Urns gives us lots of privacy when we want it but we can enjoy talking to the other friendly guests in the morning and getting advice on our day's plans over breakfast.
Convenient, clean, helpful and great location at House of Two Urns (Chicago, Illinois)

We were looking for a place close to the subway (just 1-1/2 blocks), clean, and with a kitchen where we could supplement our daily menu besides going out. The kitchen has anything you might need and even laundry facilities. The hosts are friendly and help with information for sightseeing. The house is beautifully decorated. The neighborhood felt safe. We enjoyed our stay so much that we will certainly be back :-)
