a 40 room urban bungalow-style hotel tucked behind stucco walls and set amidst lush garden courtyards in the HEART of the SoCo District. First time ever i did not want to check out of the hotel. Dog friendly, laid back atmosphere, delicious food, attentive service, large gathering area with intimate nooks or large tables so you can meet/engage with guests... More

From the moment of check-in to the moment of check-out, my wife and I couldn't have had a better experience. The hotel itself is very well designed with super comfy beds, pillows and towels. The Malin + Goetz products in the bathroom are great. The staff and service couldn't have been better. We went with 4 friends for ACL and... More

I actually stayed here in Aug 2013 but didn't get around to reviewing so I just listed this year as I can't go back far enough. Anyhow. Basically adored this place. Austin itself is incredible. Here we were opposite a great bar, within seconds and mins of loads of great bars, cafés, restaurants, food trucks and incredible shops. The walk... More

Hipster getaway in Austin. Great place to hang out. Perfect location. Pricey but worth it. Smaller budget rooms as well. Tiny pool, mainly for soaking your feet. Right by Barton springs, continental club, Amy's icecream and magnolia cafe on south congress (SOCO).

What a great place: really hip, gorgeous room, great bar and super friendly staff. I wished I could have stayed longer! If there's one thing I'd improve, which would make the place even better, it'd be double-glazing on the windows, to keep the noise of S Congress Ave out at night. The air con units from the neighbouring rooms were... More

Loved every second of our stay here! Great setting, lovely little details, great breakfasts and the comfiest rooms. Wouldn't change a thing. Loved the robes, the gorgeous comforter and great bathroom products.

We stayed here for just one evening and wished we could stay a week. The bed was small but comfortable for two. The pool was the perfect temperature for an early morning dip. Natural pool, not chlorinated. Great goodies in the room including bottled water. I can't wait to come back and take better advantage of the perfect location. Even... More

Just spent two nights at the awesomely, eclectic, very cool Hotel San Jose! I don't even know where to begin so I'll start with sliding into their 600 count like butter sheets!

I got to pass through Austin this week and stay at one of my old favourites. After four years it had changed for the better by being a little more worn in and a little more comfortable. Still with the beautiful, off beat style and simple elegance I felt more at home than ever and plugged right into the vital... More

This is the kind of hotel you *stay* at. It's not that Austin isn't a great town--it is--but the San Jose is so pleasant, it's hard to want to go past the ivy-covered walls. I stayed for one night this month, after having stayed at the San Jose several years ago. It's as good or better than ever. Still stylish,... More
