The convenient location was the primary reason for selecting the House of Two Urns, but the comfortable room, warm welcome and delicious breakfast make this a preferred place to stay on future trips to Chicago.

We stayed for 4 days. The main house is across the street from the property where we were located which had three rooms plus common areas. Downside to our room - steep stairs and a bit cramped, but just in the room we stayed in. Upside - lovely shared kitchen and common areas for those of us who were across... More

This is the best place to stay in Chicago. The location is perfect. Super easy walk to transportation. Downtown is less than 10 minutes away. Two Urns is very inviting and warm. The house is beautifully decorated. I loved my room. Everything was so clean and I appreciated all the complimentary toiletries. Breakfast was nice as well. It's nice to... More

It was a great pleasure to stay in this B&B. Good location near the subway station so you are in Downtown in 5 minutes, very comfortable room, cosy and clean, tasty breakfasts and friendly staff. It's definitely worth I paid for this stay

This location was perfect for us, and the only B&B in Wicker Park. Super easy from the airport, and both very walkable for Northwest Chicago, and great transit options elsewhere. Walk one way onto Division Street, and you're in the midst of 20- and 30-somethings dining outside; walk further north and you're in a Victorian architectural living museum. B &... More

Everyone was very friendly, if I said anything I would say breakfast was somewhat disappointing. I liked the muffins, except for the red velvet cupcake with chocolate chips. They were very sweet and not my idea of breakfast food. Most of the main courses were served cold. The vegetarian omelet had no seasoning and was cold. The sausage served with... More

I was really happy that I chose Two Urns as my place to stay in Chicago. The house is beautiful, full of interesting artwork, photography and other details. Lots of nice common space for reading books about Chicago or just relaxing. Great breakfast, where I also met many nice people and exchanged tips and experiences about the city. Also the... More

House of Two Urns is a really nice B&B. Jacuzzi tub, soft linens, delicious breakfast, friendly owners. A short walk to a train line and a few different bus lines makes it super convenient for travelers. I plan on staying here for my next trip to Chicago.

We've stayed at Two Urns several times now and definitely would go back. The room was very comfortable and the breakfast is wonderful. We needed to stay a few hours past check-out time and the staff was gracious and accommodating in letting us do that. I would definitely recommend this B&B to anyone!

House of Two Urns was our first B&B experience and it was my first trip to Chicago. We loved everything about the experience. HOTU is close to downtown in a cool and convenient neighbourhood. Our room was spacious and comfortable and it was great to have access to a kitchen for coffee and snacks. Breakfast each morning was delicious with... More
