I was looking for a place to stay with my husband to spend a 2 week vacation. We found this place. Pros: location, cleanliness, doorman, reception. Cons: my bed was too small! My husband weights over 100 kg and I weight about 90 kg. Both of us are tall. The bed had just 130 cm, hardly enough to fit us both, specially since at home we share a king size bed!

We had low expectations for splitting a two-bedroom apartment for a girls' weekend so were pleasantly surprised with the cool apartment, though sparse, handy kitchen for keeping breakfast foods, and fun rooftop with great views and hang out areas. It allowed us to be affordably walkable to Soldier Field for returning from a concert. On our last morning we heard rushing water above the bathroom before water started leaking through the ceiling. We learned the apartment above had been vacant and supposedly fixed but remaining closed, which raises lots of questions about an even worse plumbing problem. I also had respiratory issues only while in the apartment, which is concerning to me.

Old building - nice apartment though. The gym is great and for sure you will need to check out the roof-top. View of the city with nice little tables, gas grills and a pool table.

After stopping here for two nights I found this clean and tidy, a little noisy but only to be expected in the heart of the city. Great roof terrace for bbq or watch tv out in the open air. Views of the lake in the distance. 2 couples sharing with kitchen great little stop. Shortage of crockery was the only issue. Fully air conditioned.

This short-stay apartment rental is a complete rip-off--avoid! My room had no curtains on the windows, the bed was a queen-sized rollaway cot with one sheet and one thin blanket, the floor was stained, the kitchen had pots and pans, but no dishes, and the building is full of noisy college students. When I called the number provided for assistance, I was told that they couldn't help me and that "curtains were not a service they provide." The calls to their service center kept dropping and I finally asked where they were--the answer was Armenia. I called Expedia and demanded to be relocated immediately. The whole episode cost me stress and a fair amount of money. I am appalled that Expedia listed this group on their website along with legitimate hotels.
