We visited over Christmas. Everything was wonderful. We got in late and had directions to let ourselves in. Not disturbing anyone in the process. We had the entire second floor to ourselves and a private bath across the hall. Breakfasts were also pleasant. Enjoyed visiting with other guests as well. Beautifully decorated for Christmas. Was a pleasant surprise Christmas morning... More

This was our second time at the B&B and it was just as wonderful as it was in our previous trip this spring. The rooms are large, clean and beautifully decorated and the service is wonderful. And the breakfasts are delicious, hot and fresh.

When traveling we try to stay in accommodation that has a private kitchen facility so that we can prepare our own meals so we rented a full apartment at the House of Two Urns. Not only did it have a clean, fully equipped kitchen it had much, much more. Comfortable quiet sleeping rooms, television and movies to watch, comfortable living... More

I had to come to Chicago for a conference at the end of some vacation, and I always prefer more individual places to the big conference hotels. Again a good choice! We had the most enjoyable stay and wished we would be able to stay longer ... After TSA breaking my suitcase on the flight from Phoenix, we were happy... More

I stayed in the Alcova room with a good friend while visiting Chicago for a couple of days. My favorite part of the inn was the breakfast! They were delicious. Meals included french toast with fruit, delicious muffins of several varieties including rhubarb-walnut, and Mexican eggs with soy chorizo! If you do not want the special foods, there is toast,...

My husband and I stayed here one night. We stayed in the Les Chats room, which was economical, but maybe not a great stay if you will be spending any time aside from sleeping there (very small). Also, the doors are not solid wood, and the glass panels are covered with lace curtains. We had to lock all of our... More

Simply the best one I've ever visited, worldwide. And I've seen a few. You can see that Kapra and Miguel - the owners - have been striving for perfection, and have achieved it. Thanks for such a pleasant stay!

A very special, individually decorated B&B that pampers its guests with delicious breakfasts and generous public spaces. The location in an artsy corner of Chicago called Wicker Park is well connected by public transport to downtown tourist sites (15 minute bus ride) and O'Hare airport (45 minutes door-to-door on the Blue Line subway). Wicker Park is fun to explore on... More

My boyfriend and I like to go to Chicago on my birthday every year, and this year we decided to find a cute B&B instead of the normal hotels. This was probably the best decision I could have made, because finding this place couldn't have worked out more perfectly. Everything about this establishment is adorable; the robes and slippers in... More

What a great B&B! Transportation to the city quick & easy. We drove from MI - car able to be in garage. Spacious room, plate of cookies, access to kitchen if needed, clean, great breakfast. 5 star in our book!!!! We will stay again & recommend to anyone staying in Chicago. Thank you for a wonderful experience!
