Welcome to the Pilsen Art House! The Cozy Cot ~2 listing is a single cot in a SHARED gallery room. We provide cheap, safe lodging in a great location. This is a co-ed room/ both men and women can reserve a cot. This is NOT a private room rental.
PLEASE read the entire listing before booking.
This listing is for a bed in a SHARED gallery room, NOT THE ENTIRE APARTMENT, and not a private room. The common areas are shared: eating area, kitchen and bathroom. You would be renting one BED on a room with three beds for rent, so you may be sharing a room with another guest who is renting the other bed. NOT a private room.
Also note we accept both men and women so you could be sharing the room with someone of the opposite sex. Please be aware before booking to make sure you are comfortable with this.
Our art supplies and other gallery / house supplies are in the this room, so we will need access to this room during the day time hours (anywhere between 10:30-4pm)
You will be in either the small gallery room, or the main gallery room. Each Cot will have a comforter, pillow and towel.
Awesome artist building in Pilsen, directly next door to the National Museum of Mexican Art, and Harrison Park!
The vibe of the Pilsen Art House is similar to a hostel, but with private rooms as well as the shared space! You will have the opportunity to meet other travelers if you desire, or have as much privacy as you desire.
*** PLEASE NOTE: Lorie and Mike do not live here full time, but we have live in hosts and provide lots of helpful info and awesome advice on what to see and do in the city. **
**THE Pilsen Art House is an OLD building, with lots of quirks/(we call character and charm), but is wonderfully welcoming, safe and fun.
We find that guests who enjoy staying with us are those that truly enjoy interacting with other guests. So don't be afraid to chat with your flat mate, share a story, grab a meal together, explore our wonderful city together, if you're inclined. Certainly, guests can have as much privacy as they like, but be aware when booking there are many guests who come and go so if you seek a place with no other people around, this would not be a good fit for you. If you are seeking a quieter floor, we recommend the second or third floor (the first floor tends to be busier, as its our host floor and in general tends to be busier). We are also very happy to bring guests out with us when we are able.
We are always adding new art to our building, so it wont be unusual to see an artist painting away on any given day in the living room, kitchen, or hallway.
This bed/cot are located on the first floor.
No breakfast is offered at the art house.
Old Czech style buidling, typical of the area from years back when the now mostly Hispanic neighborhood, was primarily Czech.The very high ceilings gives the apt a lofted appearance, large windows, small, basic kitchen and color, color, color abounds in the Pilsen Art House.

The kitchen is fully equipped with microwave, coffee maker, blender, kettle, pots, pans, dishes, etc. As our guest, you are invited to use anything you need.
We offer three floors of private rooms in the Pilsen Art House. Each floor houses an apt with three bedrooms, bathroom, kitchen/eating area and living room. Each room is colorful, cozy, inviting, and very comfortable and private. Murals painted on all the walls make it fun, whimsical, and good conversation piece.

Hello everyone! It's Lorie, Mike, Holden and Kyle.
We are a unique family unit who loves traveling, meeting new people, and doing as many interesting things as we can. We started Airbnb'ing after years of Couchsurfing experience, so we know how to make a guest feel at home!
We have two properties now: my Oak Park home, and our place in the Pilsen neighborhood of Chicago.
If you do choose to stay with us, we will ensure you are well oriented to the city and know how to get wherever you need to go. We are also very active in the city, so if you're here to see Chicago, we can give you information on where to go to experience art, music, culture, parties, fun events, festivals, and anything else this fine city has to offer.
Look forward to meeting you.
