“Phenomenal experience !!!”
Reviewed June 11, 2013

This was the finest bed and breakfastbinhave ever stayed at. My travels have taken me all over the world and each experience has been wonderful. The Villa was absolutely stunning in a beautiful neighborhood in Chicago, but it was Cathy and her attention to every last detail that surpassed my expectations. Cathy greeted us by our first names upon arrival and every time we saw her. She was well versed on what to do, attractions and local restaurants. I will most certainly return and thank this most gracious host for a brilliant experience in this amazing city.

Cathy made staying at Villa D'Citta such a joy! She's a natural at making guests feel welcome and at home. My husband and I really valued her input (she has great restaurant recommendations) and enjoyed talking with her about any number of things. Her cookies and breakfasts are also to die for.

The amenities at Villa D'Citta are phenomenal. This is the first B&B we've stayed at where we could make sandwiches, waffles, etc. at any and all hours. The house is immaculate and furnished beautifully. We stayed in two different rooms over a three-day weekend - Cesar's Lair and the Euro room. We enjoyed both rooms and plan to try out others in the future.

Lastly, the location of Villa D'Citta can't be beat. It's within walking distance to shops, restaurants, Second City (a bit of a longer walk), and the Fullerton train station. We have no need to look any further for future accommodations in Chicago.

We were overjoyed by our stay at Villa D'Citta. The building and the rooms were beautiful, the breakfast was so delicious (I am still dreaming about Saturday's french toast), and the staff made our stay effortless. Kathy especially deserves many accolades. She was great to work with via phone while planning for our trip, and then once we arrived she was the perfect host: Delightful, helpful, and treated us like honored guests. She takes pride in her work, and it shows.

I just left yesterday, and I already want to go back.

P.S. Our bathroom was the coolest bathroom I have ever experienced. I don't know about the rest of the rooms, but ours had heated floors, a huge bathtub, and a 26-head shower with a steam feature included. All I have to say is "wow".

What a wonderful place. Cathy took great care of us. If we needed a reservation or taxi she was on it! Villa is clean and cozy- there is always fresh baked cookies and wine for the taking. Couldn't have been happier staying there. The neighborhood is adorable and has great local eateries. Will stay here again!

Room Tip: There isn't a bad room in the place. Even the smallest room has it's own bathroom down the h...

We found this amazing place to be just as beautiful as their website pictured it. Wonderful interaction with staff members Kathy and Stephanie. Great suite, terrific bed, quiet and the fantastic kitchen available 24/7 is a bonus. All the amenities of being at home while in Chicago. Great location adds to the appeal.

This is a bed and breakfast with spectacular decor. The location was great. Not too far from downtown and plenty of shops and restaurants just doors down. Our room was beautiful, newly updated and luxurious. Plenty of extras, including freshly baked cookies and/or sweet breads daily. They offered meats, cheese and breads to make sandwiches if you come in late and need a snack. The staff was amazing. Kathy seemed to be there when we woke up and still there working when we came in to go to bed. She gave us some good suggestions on places to go for some good food locally. She also answered a number of questions for us and found out info on things that she was unsure of. She was very friendly and patient and made us feel very welcome. The only negative would be the parking. There is no lot, so you must park on the street. It is located in a very nice neighborhood so safety is not an issue, but space is. I suggest that you park early to get a good spot. Then, cab it to your destination, to save your spot! I did not see or use a pool or exercise area so I rated them average only due to NA. Overall a very good experience. We will return.

Room Tip: The owner's suite is the one that we stayed in and included the pics of.

This is THE BEST stay in Lincoln Park. From the assistance of Cathy, the Villa's care taker, to the extravagantly appointed rooms to the fresh baked goods and access to vibrant food and earthy coffee, this is the place. We reserved three rooms for a few days (Capone, Tuscan & Milan) to host a bachelor party. All three rooms were spotless, well stocked with all the creature comfort one could desire. Walking through the iron gates, passed the weighty steel door, one feels transported
into a wondrous scene of intuitive beauty and extravagant living. Having a place like this to start and end the day truly makes a good trip into a phenomenal time away. The breakfast is gourmet, the amenities (flat screens in every room, hot tub, sun deck, courtyard, salvaged wood table, fireplaces) make this Mad Men mixed with Middle ages style lair, the ultimate palace to party, rest and repeat. There is no better place to stay. The location is prime, the neighborhood is safe and the staff are sublimely helpful and fun. With reasonable and flexible pricing, the management want you to stay here, almost as much as you'll never want to leave.

Room Tip: Rooms are MUCH bigger than you would imagine from the pictures, Tuscan is practically its own county...
