I know the city very well and can probably help you get to where ever you need to go. The apartment is basic and if you need a safe clean quiet affordable place to relax and regroup.... IS IT SAFE???
. This is an outer inner city urban area and the people are generally very friendly however this is Chicago,one of the largest cities in the U.S.I would NEVER knowingly put anyone in an unsafe situation so I would say it's pretty safe. None of my guest's have complained about anything. Some people do not take normal safety precautions (like locking their car doors) and find themselves in bad situations. All I can tell you is that ME and MY GUESTS have not had ANY problems whatsoever. I have lived here a long time. The area IS GENERALLY SAFE but like any other area in any other major city, not crime free.This is not a good place for the Boojie. Don't go to the lowest priced listing and complain that you don't feel safe or this place isnt what you thought it was because I don't misrepresent anything.. Let me tell you now before you book, this is not a luxury apartment or building. If that is what you need go straight downtown. Move up the price list. It is basically nice clean quiet and friendly.If you are afraid of or don't like different ethnicities don't say you didn't feel safe, yet no one threatened your safety or possessions. You are probably acting on your own fears, prejudices and misconceptions.Yes!!! It can be a little lively but people do not bother you on the street and will generally help you if you need help. If you don't feel safe, I can come and meet you. I tell everyone of my guest's that but no one takes me up on it because they are ok. Inside the apartment is quiet. This place is for good for good people who'd like to save a few bucks but still be close to all the downtown action, are here to have fun, take a vacation, visit friends and family, go to work or school or whatever! I take excellent care of my guests. I will go out of my way, way way above and beyond FOR YOU!!!. I will pick you up from the airport,train or bus if you'd like me to (and you do know that cost's a little). I will go to the store for you (free), I will help you with your laundry (free), shopping(free) ,sightseeing, entertainment and just about anything else you can name within reason. I have had visitors from all over the world and they will tell you, I don't play around when it comes to the safety, comfort enjoyment and success of their visit
