Great location, adequate accommodations
The apartment is located in an older building. The building lobby was beautiful and probably my favorite part of the apartment experience. Check-in was located in another building on the next block to obtain the keys. There was staff onsite, which was really helpful for our late check-in. The apartment only has street parking and we were able to find parking nearby during the few days of our stay. The apartment itself was just okay. It had a minimalist aesthetic with limited furnishings.
My primary feedback is that the apartment maintenance and cleanliness needed improvement. We discovered a clogged toilet upon our arrival that still had toilet tissue floating around in it. (Perhaps implying prior use? I honestly don’t want to know.) Thankfully there was a handy plunger next to the toilet, so I used that to clearly the clog. I notified the property manager that night as an FYI and they responded immediately the next morning, sending out a maintenance person who checked out the toilet that same morning. I find it concerning that the toilet appeared recently used upon our arrival; definitely a “miss” on the apartment cleaning. It was great, though, that the property management took action so quickly.
There were some other less than desirable observations: I found a broken fake finger nail on the living room floor (at first, I thought it was a sort of iridescent stone from afar), there was noticeable wear and tear on the walls (like holes from furniture and doors), and the duvet cover had visible stains. On the positive side: our unit was high up with a view, the apartment had a spacious living room and bedroom, and the kitchen had a good amount of counter space. We did not spend a lot of time in the apartment, so the accommodations were adequate for our needs. The best feature of the apartment was the location: I would definitely return to the Hyde Park neighborhood on my next Chicago visit to explore more.
This apartment isn’t luxurious but, as the photos suggest, it’s completely refurbished and very clean. It offers a particularly comfortable bed and lots of closet space. It’s in a tall, elegant old apartment building, and it’s QUIET. We had a very relaxing four-night stay.
The apartment is on an upper floor and faces south, so there’s a great view of Hyde Park (but not of Lake Michigan, which is maybe 1/8 mile away, but to the east). An earlier review notes that the Briana bakery on the ground floor has closed, but the “Sip and Savor” coffee house across the street (catty- corner) is convenient for coffee and a scone in the morning if you prefer not to brew your own in the apartment.
Just one thing. Our pre-arrival instructions said to “use fob to open building door,” which I expected to understand when I stood at the door, fob in hand. How was I to know that you TOUCH the fob to the TINY YELLOW LIGHT on the WALL a foot or so from the door? Once you figure that out, or somebody explains it, the light turns green, there’s a click in the door handle, and in you go. I can report that the ZenCity staffers, although not on site, are available and helpful, even to electronically handicapped renters.
Fantastic place to stay in Hyde Park!
The apartment is super clean, bright, and gorgeously minimalist. Close to major bus routes (6, 28), a stone's throw from the lake, and right above the scrumptious Fabiana's Bakery. Also close to the great restaurants and boutiques on 53rd St too. When I arrived I found the apartment too hot (there is an air conditioner in the living room but I found it wasn't getting through to the bedroom). I texted the folks at ZenCity, who were super prompt and helpful. Within 36 hours I had a new a/c unit in the bedroom! I *highly* recommend renting from ZenCity--their customer service is superb. The next time I'm in Chicago I'll definitely be staying with them.
