Recent Old Town reviews

  • Chris of Cinci

    "I was really pleased with my three day stay. Everything was clean and quite comfortable, and especially warm- it was hovering around negative degrees outside. All amenities for cooking and cleaning were available so I didn't have to alter my diet and eat out while there. The code entry doors were nice, didn't have to fumble around with a key or key card. The house is extremely historic and retains enough old time charm without sacrificing modern convieniences. Parking was decent, wasnt hard to find a spot despite deep snow on the ground. We will be staying there again next we come back to Chicago!"

  • Perfect for exploring Chicago!

    "My wife and I stayed here for five days along with another couple from Australia during September. The Accommodations were as advertised, clean, very comfortable and complete. The Old Town neighborhood was very nice, and the El station was within easy walking distance; only a few stops from downtown. We enjoyed a show at nearby second city and also a great dinner in a nearby pub. The owners were very good to work with, and graciously allowed us late check-out since our Amtrak departure was late in the day. We are definitely coming back for further Chicago adventures. Make sure to take the downtown architectural cruise on the Chicago River.... excellent."

  • It has everything one needs to have in order to live comfortably

    "My stay in Aster house apartment was fantastic. Fran is a super awesome human being. She has genuine interest in taking care of everyone . She did every possible thing to ensure that I have a comfortable stay. Since I was new in US, she was always helping me in ensuring that I learn the right things right from car parking to shopping to places I need to visit. The Alice apartment I lived in is beautiful , just like a fairyland. It had everything I can imagine from comfortable interiors, a study , loads and loads of books, kitchen with all the utensils, a dinning, a living room, TV with thousands of channels, cooling & heating provisions, wifi, laundry. I mean everything and decently priced too. The location is the best plus as I didnt needed a car, the train station is a 5 minutes walk connecting to every place. All the best restaurants are closely located to Aster house and the entire area is very clean, green and well kept. Very safe indeed. Also a lot of parks are located very near to it. I am so glad that I stayed here and most of all thankful that I met Fran and Quincy. They are kind and pure hearted people. Fran is a very close friend of mine now and we love to catch whenever we can."

  • Good but could be Great

    "This Old Town apartment was spacious; light-filled; clean; in a quiet, upscale, secure neighbourhood a short walkto the Sedgewick El stop; and had many cafes and restaurants within walking distance on Wells Street. It was well-stocked with all the basic cooking supplies and the Jewel Grocery store was very close. Three improvements that would lift this property from a good VRBO one to an excellent one: a badly-needed new mattress; and a general bathroom overhaul to improve the unsightly tub and the low lighting. Finally, better, more timely communication with the owner prior to and upon arrival. It would also be useful if more information on where to go in the neighbourhood and Chicago in general, was on hand to help new visitors get oriented."
