This little charmer is situated right in the middle of Boys Town, which appears to be one of the few vibrant, self-contained gay neighborhoods left in the U.S. Despite being on busy Halsted Street, it's set back with some nice landscaping in the front. Manager Ron appears to be running a one-man show and though I didn't need him much... More

In town to see a ballgame at Wrigley Field so the Villa's location was the primary reason I chose it but I was pleasantly surprised at the accommodations. It was clean, quiet and comfortable. The lifestyle theme of the surrounding neighborhood was not an issue so don't let that bother you if you are inclined to think so. I would... More

Perfect location, right in the middle of the bars and restaurants, just around the corner from CTA train station. Initially concerned about possible outside noise with its location, but incredibly peaceful .... an oasis ! Had the venetian room, in the lower level nice and compact with own bathroom.

Our experience staying at the Villa Toscana this week was enjoyable and very convenient. You are in Boystown with several bars, restaurants and attractions such as Wrigley Field within a few blocks. The outdoor sitting area as well as the help yourself kitchen lends itself to conversation with other guests from around the world. The property manager was most helpful... More

The location in Boys town is great. Nice restaurants nearby and walking distance to Wrigley field and a 5 minute walk to train to downtown (about a 25 min easy train ride). It is not an upscale B&B but it was mostly quiet (aside from slamming doors around 7:00 a.m. but we are awake by then so that didn't bother... More

A quaint bed & breakfast with excellent service from Innkeeper Ron. Conveniently located in the heart of the Boystown area of Halstead and close to Wrigley Field. Great access to the Red Line at Addison and at Belmont. The upstairs rooms are large and comfortable, although the bathroom is shared between the 3 rooms. This was never an issue during... More

My stay at The Villa Toscana was definitely a great experience. I stayed in the British Colonial room. It was my first time staying at a bed and breakfast and I have never experienced having to share a bathroom. I must say the room was nice and quite large. The shared bathroom did not bother me at all, as I... More

Found this place through Trivago and booked it as it was the only room left in the area. Was a bit apprehensive at first due to some of the reviews on here but was pleasantly surprised. Its a cute house situated in the heart of Halsted, really convenient for the gay scene, downtown and even the world famous Quads gym... More

We stayed here for two nights between Xmas and NYE 2013. Overall, we were thoroughly satisfied with the experience. However, we didn't have a car, so I can't comment on parking issues. The B&B is so close to Addison-Red station, there was no need to incur expensive taxi fares. We even took the train all the way to O'Hare -... More
