Welcome to the 'soft opening' of my Chicago AirBnB!
My apartment can use a few final touches, but I invite you to a comfortable stay in a spacious, sunlit apartment in Albany Park, Chicago at reasonable rates and a good location too! My place is close to Lawrence Ave, Gompers Park, Northeastern Illinois University, Copernicus center. My place is bright and clean. It's good for couples, solo adventurers, and business travelers.


There are only a few condominium buildings in the historic neighborhood of North Mayfair in Chicago and you would be staying in one of them - this bright and spacious two bedroom apartment is on the top (3rd) floor of a Jazz Age (1925) building. The location allows you to enjoy the quietness of a Chicago bungalow district and the proximity of the LaBagh Woods (crossed by North Chicago river, good for bird watching) and Gompers park (with an outdoor swimming pool) to the north, or explore the lively Lawrence street in the upcoming Albany Park known as the most diverse neighborhood of Chicago. By the time you make your way to the Lake, you would have seen restaurants offering food from all over the world (and it’s affordable!)

While the apartment is not in heart of Chicago’s downtown, it is 0.5 mile from the Blue line, which can take you to the Loop, or to the Airport. Alternatively, take Bus 84 towards Michigan lake and then hop on the Brown line which also takes you to the Loop.
If you are arriving by car, there is very convenient access to I-90 and I-94 highways. Also, free street parking is available around the block. Chicago is notorious for its traffic, so commute times depend on season and time of day. But the way I look at it is this - the beautiful Chicago skyline is in front of you to admire while heading to downtown :)

I have set my apartment in a minimalist, but cozy style, simple yet functional! And it’s clean! I moved in in March 2016, therefore the place still needs a few final touches, but it’s freshly panted, floors just polished,
and I’m eager to invite you in!

The apartment is about 900 square feet with a kitchen/dining area, spacious living room, two sunny bedrooms and a bathroom with tub. While it's obviously in an older building (1925), the apartment is clean and everything is functional.

The guest bedroom faces South, and it offers a queen size IKEA sofa-bed (futon), suitable for one or two guests. It has a firm mattress. Reading light is available next to the bed.

I only offer coffee (Nespresso coffee machine), tea, and some fruit/cookies for breakfast. However, you are welcome to use the kitchen and make something more substantial for yourself. There is a 7/11 only a block away, and some other shops and restaurants near by. See the map for suggestions and favorite places I go to.

It is a strictly non-smoking place, no pets, no shoes inside. You are welcome to enjoy the porch off the kitchen’s back door, but I would appreciate it if you don't smoke there. Washer/Dryer are located in the basement and available upon request.

This is my primary residence, therefore you would be sharing the apartment with me - professional, 43 y.o. female, I'm most often working from home.

I strongly prefer to host guests with profiles which are not left blank, has a photo, some reviews already and an off-line ID verification (in addition to to phone and email) .
I understand that sometimes you'd have to book in a rush and your AirBnB profile might be brief - if so, please do say something about yourself when you contact me. It's nice to know who I welcome in my home :)

Happy travels!


The keys would be handed to you or left in a key lock-box. More details will be provided upon booking.


I'm curious by nature and would enjoy a conversation with you, but could also respect your privacy and let you enjoy your stay without much interaction. Just let me know which one you would prefer :)

Absolutely, she is a perfect host. I was so late to arrive at her house, so I troubled to her. However, she is so kind and a lot of information of around Chicago. She is really helpful. Her house is very clean, awesome! If I visit to Chicago again, I stay there again:D Thanks for accepting me, Iliana! I really appreciate it!

Iliana is a perfect host. She's very responsive to any questions and make sure you get in easily. The place is very clean and furnished with a cool modern vibe. Both the common area and the guest room have a lot of sunshine during the day. Safe, quiet and friendly neighborhood. Restaurants and grocery close by. Strongly recommend! PS: Be aware that it's on 3rd floor with a slightly steep staircase ; )

Very friendly, perfect stay! Thanks so much!

Iliana is one of the best hosts you will ever have the pleasure of staying with. She is an experienced host and is extremely welcoming from the moment you arrive. She accommodates all of her guests very well and is quick to provide recommendations for restaurants and coffee shops in the area. How often do you find a host who is flexible with check-in and check-out times and kindly offers to give you a ride and pick you up and/or drop you off (within a reasonable distance)? Her apartment and the room is immaculately clean, cozy, and beautifully furnished. Not only did I have an amazing experience staying with Illiana, but I made a new friend too – we even had dinner together one night and plan to see each other again! She is eager to chat and interact with her guests, but will give you the privacy you need if you prefer. The location in Albany Park is wonderful and safe with a more residential feel, the highlight being the eclectic variety of cheap ethnic restaurants from authentic Korean to Mexican and Latin American. There are plenty of transportation options as well – the Blue Line is a 15-minute walk and about 20-25 minutes from downtown Chicago, and will also take you directly to O'Hare. Access to several bus lines are even closer and there is ample street parking space. I can't think of any possible downside to staying with Iliana at her charming and lovely place – the price and value is such a steal! Just an fyi, though – the apartment is located on the fourth floor and there is no elevator. Thank you so much for your generous hospitality, Iliana! Let's continue to stay in touch :)

Illiana was a great host. She was easy to reach and offered us tea when we arrived. Her apartment is on a quiet street close to public transportation and about a 15-minute drive when there is no traffic to downtown Chicago. The room we stayed in had a comfortable bed and the apartment was very clean and tidy. A perfect stay!

Iliana is a great host. Very friendly and clear communication. The flat is clean and looks just like the pictures. I was out and about most of the time so didn't spend much time at the flat. The neighbourhood felt safe and quiet and I didn't have any problems walking home in the evenings etc. The location is quite far out of town with the train about 10-15mins walk from the flat. But this is clearly described in the listing and was no surprise. The train connects well with downtown and other nice places to visit on the blue line. Thanks Iliana

Iliana was warm and welcoming when we arrived. The house was impeccably clean and tidy. She offered to drive us to a dinner place when we arrived or sit and have a glass of wine. Towel sets were laid out on the bed for both of us. The bed was incredibly comfortable. My girlfriend and I were out and around town for most of the day and Iliana had no issues with us leaving early and returning late each day. All around a great hostess and someone I'd recommend to others.

Love traveling and meeting new people! I first experienced AirBnB when I lived in Utrecht, the Netherlands. Later I hosted in Fitzroy - lively and fun suburb of Melbourne, Australia. In early 2014 I moved to Washington, DC and I was happy to offer my studio to the Capital's guests. I hosted shortly in Madison, WI too. I have also stayed with some wonderful AirBnB hosts in Brussels, Utrecht, Amsterdam, St. Emillion and Melbourne.
Recently I moved to Chicago - the only city in the world I'm in love with !
I'm happy to open doors for guests again :)
Welcome to the Windy City!
