“What a grand residence and very enjoyable owner.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 9, 2011

We highly recommend the Villa for a special stay in the City. Our stay was 2 nights and we were there to visit family. The owner immediately made us feel welcomed. He is extremely knowledgeable about the City and encouraged us to make ourselves at home. Stocked refrigerator and open kitchen were very helpful when we needed a light snack. Unfortunately we didn't have time to actually cook anything, but it was available. We had access to the owner's cell phone number in case we needed it at any time. He is a great host and we felt like old friends by the time we left. We stayed in the Milan Suite and it is absolutely beautiful and spacious. The bed is very comfortable with luxurious bedding. Bathroom is very modern with lots of room and double sinks. We love the location near the Lakeshore and designated parking is available down the street. Stay at the Villa for a luxurious stay in an immaculate 'residence.' We can't wait to come back!

I was going to Chicago for a night, as my fiancee had business to do the next day. I went to a website, and searched for the hotels nearest to where she needed to be. I happened across Villa D' Citta, and it looked gorgeous! The price was in line with a Holiday Inn or a HoJo, so I immediately booked a room. When I arrived, I was greeted by Ralph, who instantly made us feel at home. He told us of all the local hot spots in the area, and he upgraded our room for free!

The house is fantastic, and there wasn't a single expense spared. Our bedroom had a gas fireplace that turned on with a switch, and a plasma TV hanging above it. The beds were so comfortable that just looking at them made me tired. I ventured down to the kitchen for a midnight snack, and the refrigerator was fully stocked with all sorts of goodies. I woke up in the morning soaking in all of the beautiful sunshine that the many windows and skylights in our room provided. The bathroom and shower facilities were immaculate as well.

There is NO reason to not spend your money on a place that not only offers you a place to lay your head, but also offers you an experience. I am never staying at another place when visiting Chicago! I promise you won't be disappointed!

My few days stay at Villa D'Citta was amazing! Ralph, the owner and innkeeper was so hospitable. The rooms are so romantic and made it that we did not want to get out of bed. The rest of the Villa also made it that we did not want to check-out. Came into town for a show, but will definitely need to find another excuse soon to come back and stay here again!

We found Villa d Citta on bed and breakfast.com. We are so glad we did! The house is amazing from the exterior and proves to exceed expectations once you step in the door. My wife and I booked the Euro suite and were pleasantly surprised when we were upgraded to the Milan. The room was beautiful and bed so comfortable. The fireplace is a nice touch and the bathroom spectacular. Look forward to another stay!

Fell in love with Villa d'Citta from the pictures and reviews and was not disappointed. No other B&B or even larger hotel, for that matter, could offer what Villa d'Citta could. We had an early departure from Chicago and really wanted to start the day with a nice breakfast. Every other place said they could not serve us anything to eat before 630AM. But at Villa d'Citta there is a huge, beautiful, fully stocked gormet kitchen with fresh produce, cheeses, eggs, spices, etc. And you can make your own! My husband and I both love to cook, so he whipped up Beligian waffles (mix is pre-made in the fridge), and made fresh squeezed OJ, while I cooked up an egg scramble with italian peppers and onions topped with Tilamook cheddar. We took crisp, sweet apples for a mid morning snack. Maybe making your own breakfast is not for everyone, but this was perfect for us! Also was delighted with an upgrade and found the entire place to be lavish, comfortable and just what we wanted for a special night in Chicago. The Grand suite is really special (especially the bath!!) And the fireplace in each room can't be beat. I have never slept so well away from home- the bed was crazy comfortable. The courtyard had a really nice grill, which we didn't have time to use but will keep in mind for another time. And there was a hot tub on the roof. It's small, private, would be fabulous to rent with a group of friends/family and just take the house over for a few days. There is also a small elevator which was very good for my husband's broken foot. Great friendly service from the staff- thanks Ralph!!!

My girlfriend and I spent a girls weekend in Chicago while our husbands spent a boys weekend in Myrtle Beach. The Villa was an absolutely fabulous find. The room was extremely large and the beds the most comfortable beds ever! Ralph, the Inkeeper, was so accommodating and very helpful. Martha is the sweetest housekeeper in the world, who makes the most fabulous home fries for breakfast. The Villa's location is close to public transportation, within walking distance to some great restaurants and a short cab ride from great shopping. It was truly a great Chicago experience and I can't wait to return!
