I had stayed here once before, but had not made the arrangements myself. So I wasn't sure how this place compared to others in the area (around UT). On my return trip I considered alternatives in the area. Doing so, I realized what a great value the Folk House is. The location is great (and there is free parking in... More

I stayed here on a recent trip to UT Austin. The location is excellent for visits to UT, or for those who want to be close to the area. The B&B is pleasant, clean, has a certain amount of charm (though more funky in an Austin kind of way than overdone and in your face...which I found refreshing and relaxing).... More

Stayed during the Formula One Grand Prix weekend when accommodation rates all over Austin are virtually doubled. Would be a very good deal during non event times. Beautiful house filed with antiques on the edge of the University of Texas. A block and half away from a bus stop for Austin's very inexpensive bus system. Fantastic breakfast that will keep... More

Nice place. Kinda quirky like Austin. Friendly staff and owners, very helpful. Breakfast was over the top good. Blueberry stuffed French toast or the usual continental breakfast fair. No question ... Go for the French toast

I always prefer a nice B&B over an average hotel. I have found they run around the same price, and they are typically more comfortable. This B&B has several great things going for it. It is close to The Capital and Texas Museum, and University of Austin is just a few blocks away. Our room, #8, was simply furnished with... More

I stayed here for 2 weeks while doing research at the Harry Ransom Center at the University. It's very convenient for the University (about a 2 min walk to the Harry Ransom), and also close to plenty of good places to eat or drink. The room was comfortable and had everything I needed. The breakfasts are amazing and the staff... More

We stayed at this B&B because we were doing a college visit and I wanted my daughter to experience the fun that I've had over the years with a B&B. I think this house is really more of an Annex to the Star of Texas on the next block. We checked in late, so there was a note left for... More

I recently stayed at the Austin Folk House Bed and Breakfast on W. 22nd Street. This was just like staying in a good friend's house! I want to live there all of the time! The B&B has 7 or 8 rooms and must have original been a boarding house or rooming house. I stayed in an upstairs room, had a... More

Good place to stay in Austin and is close to downtown. Even though its close to the university is still quite and has a great location in the city. It was easy to check in with a note left for me and explanations on what to do. Most B&Bs are more hands on, but overall the laid back hands off... More

If you have business on UT Austin campus, then the Folk House is very convenient. However, if you are a tourist wishing to see Austin, then I suggest you consider alternatives, including the sister establishment, the Star of Texas, one block away. We have stayed in dozens of B&B's throughout the U.S. Never before have we not seen an innkeeper... More
