This is the second time I have stayed at the Magnolia Studios, the last time in the summer on holiday, this time at the end of winter for a conference. I arrived to find Studio 1 as clean and neat as the first time round, and most importantly, the central heating was on to allow my Australian blood to acclimatize... More

I was in Chicago to meet a new grandson, and just happened to come the Friday before the Chicago Blizzard of 2015. Studio 2 was quite cozy and relaxing when I was forced to hole-up for over 24 hours due to the storm. Anything you could need or want is provided in the studios, from kitchen utensils to bathroom supplies.... More

Like most of the others who have stayed here this place is about 98% perfect. The room is very thoughtfully planned especially as concerns the windows. Great little place to visit, and also convenient to the red line that can get you downtown in a very reasonable period of time. The best thing about it is that it was only... More

My husband and I are seniors, we stayed in studio #2 over while visiting family in Chicago over Christmas. The studio is spotless, very clean and tidy. Kate answered our many questions, and was very helpful and accomodating. The studio is painted a restful watered sage, the floors are hardwood, the atmosphere is soothing. Hubby was pleased with the TV... More

I stayed in the apartment for a long weekend as I was in town for a wedding. The apartment was spacious, clean and comfortable. It had everything I needed, plus some extras which was unexpected and great! There's an iron, hairdryer, unlimited water, lotion, shampoo and conditioner! I would definitely stay here again, like having your own apartment right in... More

We happened upon this facility on the Internet and are so happy that we chose to stay there. They have just three units, made up of two studios and one apartment. We stayed in a studio, and it was comfortable and perfect for our needs. The room is sufficiently large, and has a small, complete kitchen. The pictures on their... More

I absolutely love this place, a real home away from home. Forget the hotels - this guest house is located in Andersonville, a real nice and safe neighborhood on the North Side of Chicago. Very clean, quiet, and near just about everything. The walk in shower is the best feature. The bed is very comfortable and I always feel like... More

15-20 minutes from downtown, these studios are modern, European in flavor, reasonably priced, and utterly private. Kate was in Europe, but called and emailed so we could confirm our same-day reservation. Great service by Kate. We would stay here again without any questions.

Booked one of the studio apartments for 3 nights following all the wonderful comments on tripadvisor! They were not wrong! Comfortable, quiet, clean and fairly priced- this is a great alternative to a hotel or B&B. Kate, the owner, has created a great place to retreat after a day in the busy city. Near CTA stop. Easy access. Privacy. Hope... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here, loved the location near the waterfront and also near the great restaurants/shops of Andersville. Don't hesitate to book. Great communications with owner before we arrived and very private once we were there
