I stayed at Villa Toscano a couple of years ago due to my trip coinciding with the Chicago Marathon and not being able to find any place else. It has a great location in the middle of the Boystown neighborhood in Chicago, but the pictures on the website are a bit deceiving. They don't show much other than the bed... More

4-STARS What a great weekend! Thank you Villa Toscana! GREAT room and large enough for one or two people to stay comfortably. Attentive staff, yet unobtrusive. In the main house where I stayed -- lots of treats for breakfast: cereal, mini cinnamon buns (YUM!), granola -- OJ in the fridge! Also tea, coffee and water are all available till noon.... More

June 4 & 5,2007-- Pat McCormack-- We stayed in #5 at the garden level which is really the basement. One has to go outside to get to the kitchen & the rest of the facility. The worst part was the bathroom . I believe that the grout in the shower is colored black. Most of this black grout is covered... More

This woman was full of complaints the minute she walked in the b&b. They arrived at 12:30 pm expecting to check into their rooms. Our checkout time is 12 noon. Rooms cannot be turned over that quickly. When I told them that they had to wait they acted very annoyed and a bit rude even though I allowed them to... More

Horrible experience!!! We reserved a stay for 3 nights for our wedding weekend (3 nights was required by them), only to arrive on the 3rd night to find that all of our personal belongings had been thrown in the garbage by the housekeeper (toothbrushes, paste, hair gel, including brass candle holders that our friends had put in their to make...

B&B in Chicago's Linclon Park area. Setting is beautiful; set back from busy street with lots of charming greenery /fountains along brick walkway to stately front door. Weren't told ahead of time that it's in gay neighborhood; didn't matter to us (small family). Room was older and charming with comfy queen bed and separate twin daybed that pulls out to... More

The Villa Toscana in Chicago's Lakeview area, was the perfect answer to all of my vacation traveling needs. I love the charm of B&B's, as I have been to many all over hte country, and abroad, and the Villa is no exception. If you want to stay in a place with character, a really amazing location, a small but gracious... More

I must say that I was a bit shocked to read a few of the reviews below. My partner and I just spent 4 nights at the Villa Toscana and could not have been happier with our stay. We travel to Chicago at least once a year to visit with friends and this was our third time staying at this... More

Stayed at the Villa Toscana for 3 nights. Its location is the best feature. Everything else is just OK. Located right across from Hydrate night club. Many bars, clubs, restaurants, stores only a short walk away. Addison "El" stop on the red line is a 5 min walk from the Villa and 15 min ride to downtown Chicago area. So...... More

Just stayed for 2 nights at the Villa Toscana. (in response to the last reviewer's notes) I didn't even realize there were downstairs rooms to this place! My room was apparently a vast difference from those rooms. I had room #1, which was upstairs with a window facing the front yard. I'm not sure where it sits on the scale... More

The Villa Toscana was not what I expected at all. Granted it is located near the best gay bars in Chicago but that didn't make up for some of it's shortcomings. The theme rooms are a good idea and well done, but they are extremely small. Our room was only about a 10' x 12' room. Basically only big enough... More
