The price and location of this place attracted us! Definitely the cheapest hotel in downtown Chicago. Don't stay here if you are use to luxury. This is a place for one of those one the budget travelers. The hotel is a little bit ran down, but it has a bed, a clean shower, clean sheets. What else do you need... More

We were able to explore downtown on foot, or using the excellent cycle hire system.

Don't expect fancy but it is adequate. Easy check in, It may look sketchy but once we got in the room, we felt totally ok with it. Especially based on the price and location! Great neighborhood, with lots of restaurant and coffee shops within walking distance. Also close to the train, buses and more. We were here just one night... More

Very friendly, helpful staff and the location was perfect! The building is older, but our room was clean and comfortable. I also loved having a diner right next to us.
