We came from Spain to visit the city for the first time, and be with some friends we know there. The room was good, with all you need to be confortable. But I think the best part of this place is his owner, David, he was always helping us to let us know what places we should go to see the downtown, was the nicest guy we ever met in a travel. (Even I gave him an euro as a lucky coin!) The place have good conection, you are 2 blocks from subway station. So if I go back to Chicago someday, I will go again.
We stayed a long weekend visiting our daughter and taking part in a charity walk. The location is great and the bedroom was large and very comfortable. I don't think you could find a better value in Chicago. The innkeeper always asked if we needed anything, parking passes, directions,etc. it is quiet and cozy. This was our second stay there, and would choose it again.
My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed our one-week stay at The House of Two Urns. The location couldn't be better for access to the Blue Line and walking in historic neighborhoods settled by immigrants from Europe more than a century ago. Capra and Miguel are wonderfully knowledgable and helpful with tips on how best to make daily itineraries rewarding. They are both artists and their work adorns the walls throughout the three-story house (which was the site of a Polish bakery from 1912 to the 1950s). The homemade breakfasts are marvelous! We will highly recommend The House of Two Urns to friends traveling to Chicago. And we hope to return as well!
Wonderful rooms on busy Division Street; steep stairs to reach them. Super comfortable bed, thoughtfully planned bathroom. A small table/desk would be helpful. We enjoyed our stay, but the entire staff of the place was absent the first two days we were there (they said an emergency -- we thought someone had died -- but actually they were having a staff retreat). We couldn't get extra towels, couldn't get into the kitchen, couldn't reach anyone by phone. Great room but seems like a weird way to run a lodging establishment. Probably doesn't happen very often -- recommend this place if you're v. independent and comfortable with stairs.
This treasure is located in the heart of Old Chicago's turn of the Century mansions of Oak Park. You can walk to 2 dozen of Frank Lloyd Wright's most famous early Designs. Bishop's Hall is a different example of the architecture of that early 20th century era. The owner makes the entire home open and accessible to his privileged guests. Charles is more interesting than his estate with colorful stories to add to his breakfast affairs.
Wanted something close to Wrigley. This place was perfect. Price was right, neighborhood has a lot of options for food and cocktails. Highly recommend if you are looking for a change from the large hotel stay in downtown.
This was our first trip to Chicago and had a wonderful 6 night stay at Villa D' Citta. It is a beautiful B&B and Cathy, the director couldn't have been more welcoming! After a full day of sightseeing, she made us feel like we'd come home. Can't wait to return!
This is our second stay at the Old Chicago Inn B & B and yet again it was a wonderful visit. We had a larger room this time; however, the bathroom was outside of the room, but you are provided wonderful robes and it is on the same floor. You have a key since it is the bathroom for your room. The service is always great, there is a small breakfast each morning and then you also receive 2 $10.00 discounted vouchers to use at the restaurant next door. These can be used on the same meal. This B & B also has a small speakeasy downstairs that is a wonderful experience.
We've stayed at Wicker Park every September for 4 years now, and we love it. We were in the Garden apartment for the first time this year and while we were happy enough with the room, we find that the Blue Line room is actually quieter in our 3 other stays. We had VERY noisy, stomping, partying upstairs neighbors- which is no fault of the inn. We also had a housekeeping issue that was taken care of quickly, which we appreciated. We love Wicker Park, but we're going back to our old reliable Blue Line room next year. ___I rated the onsite dining outstanding as breakfast is not included in the cost of the Garden apartment. Thanks to the apartment kitchen, we made all our own food___
I was just at Old Chicago Inn over the weekend for a couple of concerts at The Vic. I chose Old Chicago Inn because of its close proximity to The Vic. I didn't want to have to take public transit or a cab to the venue. I am glad I chose The Vic. David, the caretaker was wonderful. He was very helpful and kind. The room I stayed in was clean and very comfortable. I certainly would stay there again if I every go back to The Vic for a show.
I spend 4 nights at Old Chicago Inn. David the innkeeper is a real sweetheart and the friendliest guy ready at your service. My room had everything that you need - A bed, table, chair, desk and tv. My only wish would be that the aircondition could be self controlled and not controlled centrally as it became could at night. Breakfast which is included was limited to yoghurt and granola bars, but there was plenty of coffee and tea. The location of the hotel is absolutely amazing with a train station just 5 min off and you will be in the city center within 20 min. Thanks for a nice stay.
We stayed in the garden apartment - very nice, spacious, clean, and quiet, considering location to the train. It was my first time in Wicker Park; this location is excellent - within walking distance of public train and bus, grocery store, and a ton of restaurants. I will stay again.
I was visiting family in wicker park. Great location .. Easy parking.. The breakfast was perfect ... Fresh fruit, cereal, bagels quiche , coffee... Etc. I stayed in the cape cod room.
