I spent 4 days in Chicago, and I feel being in an aunt's house. The breakfast is fantastic!! Kapra prepares a different menu every day.The bedroom and bathroom were very confortable. The only thing that did not like was the stairs for the bedroom, but Kapra and Miguel helped me. I really do recommend this B&B, but does not bring... More

Although this B&B had positive aspects, I probably won't stay here again. The first thing that's important to realize is that it's a 25-minute drive from the airport *without traffic.* Estimates were 45 minutes from both the B&B owner and Google Maps the morning I intended to fly out, but due to construction, the highway I needed to take to...

Two Urns is very well located in Chicago. The breakfasts were wonderful, and the room was very comfortable. The staff were very helpful, and provided us with great suggestions about what to see and do in Chicago. Would stay here again if in Chicago

I have stayed in many B&B's over the years. The experience has been universally good but some stand out. Two Urns is one of those. Two Urns is located in the Wicker park district of Chicago on Greenview street just a few doors up from Division street which is a fairly large and busy thoroughfare. Two Urns has rooms in... More

I had a great week based at the House of Two Urns while exploring Chicago. I was travelling alone, something I don't normally do, and enjoyed the communal breakfasts with friendly company. My room was quite small, but fine for my needs: I don't travel with huge amounts of stuff or need to spread out a lot. I was a... More

House of Two Urns was amazing! The room was immaculate and daily breakfast quite yummy and freshly prepared. The coffee was strong and delicious too...an uplifting beginning to any day. Parking was easy and the neighborhood around Greenview Ave is very cool and safe. I walked around and found a local bakery and other shops. I can't wait to come... More

The location was very convenient, the blue line is a couple blocks. Our room was comfortable, the common area with full kitchen was an added bonus. The jacuzzi bath with aromatherapy was wonderful after a day of sightseeing. The garden outside pleasant. The staff was friendly, we felt at home. The breakfasts were amazing! The other guests were very interesting,... More

Our family of 5 stayed at the inn in May while in town for our daughter's graduation from college. Convenient location. Quiet neighborhood. GREAT breakfasts. We felt at home from the minute we arrived. The Inn is decorated with the owner's extensive and eclectic art collection--very unique and fun. We wish we could have stayed a few more days, it...
