The Flemish House is a beautiful old building in a charming neighborhood. We stayed in the 2 bedroom suite, which is spacious and tastefully decorated. A couple of things could have been better First, the bed and breakfast doesn't serve breakfast. Also, the water takes forever to heat up in the morning. And while one bedroom is just about perfect,... More

MikeInnChicago, Owner at Flemish House of Chicago, responded to this review

Thank you for taking the time to write a review on Trip Advisor. As owners, we would like to point out that you rented the top floor of a 4-story row house built in 1892. We're sorry that you had to wait for hot water, but that sometimes happens in the morning when no one has been using the hot... More

We are just ending a birthday trip for my husband (61) and have spent 3 nights here at The Flemish House- true to all prior reviews this place is just great. The neighborhood is filled with classic old chicago brownstones and grey stones and is marvelous. It's a quick walk to all the places you'll want to go in Chicago... More

This was our 4th year traveling to Chicago in December and wanted something different than the typical hotel setting. This Bed and Breakfast was perfect. Bed was very comfortable and 2nd floor room was very large with a living room, kitchen, bedroom, closet, bathroom. We decided to not have the continental breakfast, since we had a full kitchen, I cooked... More

Loved our stay at the Flemish House in Chicago. Spent the night in the city for a family party and decided to try this B and B. Mike was a gracious host and filled us in on everything we needed to know in the area. Our third floor room had a lovely living room overlooking the Gold Coast street we... More

We are just completing a weeklong stay at Flemish House. Friends recommended the place and I'm very glad we chose to stay here. The room is great, it's always nice to have the extra space and kitchenette. The location is in an attractive neighborhood, quiet yet close to the 151 bus to shoot downtown, which is about a mile south.... More

We are occasional visitors to Chicago, a city we always enjoy. We were looking for an alternative to a hotel for our stay, which was planned last minute. After reading the Trip Advisor reviews, I gave the Flemish House a call. We were fortunate to get a last minute booking for 2 nights. The reviews accurately reflect the quality of... More

I visited Chicago with two friends for a girls weekend. We rented the top floor of Flemish House, which turned out to be a gorgeous, spacious apartment, tastefully appointed. The owners are friendly and easy to deal with and the location can't be beat. Only drawbacks are that it is a 4th floor walkup so may not be suitable for... More

Spent a great week in Chicago in October 2014 staying at the Flemish House. Spacious accommodation, friendly, helpful, and non-intrusive hosts, and a great location just five minutes by bus, or 20 minutes walk into town. Loved it Jeff and Maureen, England

The location of the Flemish House is terrific, just off Michigan Ave. We stayed in the first floor apartment which was really comfortable and homely. Tom and Mike (the owners) were very welcoming, they live on the premises and were there to help us out whenever needed. You can sense that they love their home and are delighted to share... More

Staying in Gold Coast

Neighborhood Profile
Gold Coast
Located just north of The Loop, Gold Coast is one of Chicago’s most affluent and popular neighborhoods. The original Playboy, Hugh Hefner, once had a mansion here. In addition to prestigious hotels, historic mansions and luxury high-rise apartments, you’ll also find upscale specialty boutiques and Michelin-starred restaurants. Walk along Oak Street for your shopping fix and dance through the night along Rush Street. The Newberry Library is also a great stop to check out noteworthy exhibits and rare book collections.
