"IF I'm going to Chicago, this is my first call. I have stayed at the Aster House on numerous occasions. This wonderfully historicial home is located in a lovely neighborhood in walking distance to so many attractions (great jazz and blues clubs, shopping, restaurants, coffee shops, public transportation, etc).”

"WE packed a whole bunch of eating and sightseeing into a summer and most of it we could walk to from Aster house.“

"SHORT walk to the "L" makes getting to downtown Chicago fast and convenient. Great neighborhood with everything you need in walking distance. We had a great time!!"

“WONDERFULLY charming home in a great neighborhood! A quiet place of rest in a big city ”

"I recommend this house to everyone who comes to Chicago. It is in the heart of the city, but still very peaceful from inside. Very accessible from all the angles. There is a beautiful park too nearby”

"WE could not have asked for a better location or more charming accommodations for our stay in Chicago! The Aster House is close to all the major cultural attractions of the city, yet still maintains all the neighborhood charm of Lincoln Park. We took evening walks to the Lake, nearby great restaurants and jazz clubs. “

"ALL the best restaurants are closely located to Aster house and the entire area is very clean, green and well kept. The apartment is so close to plethora of eating joints, shopping places, supermarkets and train stations. Very safe indeed. Also a lot of parks are located very near to it."

"EVEN though my family event was in the suburbs, I wanted to stay where I could access the best of Chicago. This apartment turned out to be ideal. A beautiful walk up with a cottage-style garden. Super quiet inside and around the neighborhood. Two coffee house/bakeries about a block away. I could walk just a few minutes to some of my favorite music spots like Blues on Halsted and Lincoln Hall"
