October 2015

Das Zimmer in der unteren Étage war ganz ok, außer ein paar Hundenhaaren war es ordentlich. Uns wurden zudem auch saubere Handtücher zur Verfügung gestellt. Um ins Zimmer zu gelangen musste man durch einen Gang und ein Arbeitszimmer, welche beide mit Hindenhaaren dreckig waren und ein klein wenig gerochen hatte. Die drei Hunde waren lieb aber sprangen ständig an einem hoch.
Die anderen Frauen in dem Haus waren sehr nett und es ist super nah an der Metra um nach Downtown zu gelangen.
Wir waren trotzdem froh, nach 2 Nächten wieder abreisen zu können.

I stayed almost 2 months with Dianna C. Long in the Urban Art Retreat Center and enjoyed my stay very much. My room was rather small but perfect for me because I had the sitting room besides my door. The Urban Art Retreat Center hosts only women and I really liked talking and laughing with the other three girls staying at the same place though the need for privacy got always respected. Dianna herself is busy with social art projects and happy if you stay long enough and if you are interested in becoming a volunteer in one of her projects. The neighbourhood feels safe enough but it is definitely not high society or touristic. It's only 5 minutes to the pink line train (20 minutes to the loop) or to busses. If you are loking for a little bit different and authentical place to stay, come to the Urban Art Retreat Center!

A crazy, but beautiful house with a very nice hostess. The Metro station is only 5 minutes walk and within 15 minutes you are in downtown Chicago.

i had some very good days with Diana. the hostess, aa painter and artist herself is very friendly and helpfull. she answers emails with questions immediately and makes you feel home the moment you step through her door. bedroom is not vrey big but sufficient and clean, bathroom, fully equiped kitchen and living/sittingrroom make you feel at home quickly. the house is conveniently locate near a busstop from where the bus brought me in 20 min to McCormick place and the lake. downtown is easily reached via the pink line. shops and (mexican) restaurants on walking distance, allhough not the richest neighbourhood I felt safe to arrive on my own by publc transport even at night. can recommend this place.excellent value for money.

Even Cowgirls Get the Blues Room in Chicago! (Women Only)

I only stayed there for one night but I really enjoyed it. Dianna was nice, welcoming and made sure I had everything I needed. The CTA pink line is very close and it gets you to the Loop in about 20mn.
