I just got back from Austin late last week and stayed at Kimber Modern for two nights. I ended up staying in two different rooms (first night was Purple - second was Yellow). Upon pulling up, I pulled under the hotel into a parking spot designated for the guests. The hotel isn't big or crazy or loud - it's perfect!... More

My husband and I visited last week. Absolutely beautiful and unique. The integration with the environment was wonderfully soothing (the common deck area is built around a tree); the attention to detail was incredible. In a great neighborhood -- only several blocks from South Congress' restaurants and shops; easy parking (6 spots for 7 rooms and street parking readily available).... More

Thank you for your review. I'm glad you mentioned about the ample parking at the hotel as it's getting increasingly more difficult to park in Austin. Our self-serve luxury concept begins when you park your car and don't have to scramble for a place on the street or pay $30 for valet parking. Please come back and visit us again. More

The design of this hotel to me is an expression of new Austin-er. They love to cope with the nature and establish an Eco-friendlily living. The big oak tree in the center of the house will tell you all about it. Check-in is key-less, re-freshness include wines, beer & all kind of quality drink. I can't ask more than that.... More

We stayed in the white room. It was quiet, clean, and spacious. For the cost of the rooms, the "buffet" breakfast is minimal and has lots of room for improvement. Cassie was very cordial and was quick to answer our questions. Overall, it was a pleasant stay.

My husband and I just spent four nights in the Yellow room. It was a huge splurge, but we decided to go for it based on the many glowing reviews. We're so glad we did. Here's why: First, the location can't be beat. It is just behind all the action of SOCO, making it easy for us to run back... More

I would imagine that the Kimber Modern would have enough praises without my addition, but I literally just returned from Austin and am still thinking about this urban haven. I surprised my husband with our stay as he assumed that we booked at a "traditional" hotel. As we started to drive down a more residential street, I took some joy... More
