If you like staying in cookie-cutter hotels with no personality, no charm, and no edge, the Modern B&B is not for you! The Modern B&B is more than a place to stay, it's Cheers in the form of a hotel. A delightful staff greets you and many times you are given your choice of one of two dozen totally different... More

My room was beautiful, quiet and most important, clean. This location provides easy access to the museums, Galeria, downtown and restaurants. Need a tip on where to go or something to do - just ask the proprietor. The staff definitely caters to their guests. Looking forward to my next stay.

We were met upon our arrival by an exuberant albeit somewhat confused an dingy hostess. After running my credit card three times for the wrong amount she summoned help in the form of longtime bookkeeper Gina who was completely rational and focused. The kitchen in our house (there are five houses in a row) was not set up and inasmuch... More

We didn't know what to expect but we were encouraged by the many positive reviews online. Lisa greeted us warmly and gave us lots of information about the locality. She showed us a couple of rooms and let us choose which one we wanted. It was large enough but had little storage with a very small wardrobe and no chest... More

I wandered to Modern on Tripadvisor after searching Houston Rice/downtown for an interesting historic hotel, not having been to Houston before. Cost and proximity to Rice and Museum District had me at the Modern. Originally built as a series of rowhouses on a corner, they are now interconnected as a complex multi-level room accommodations. Good stay at a good price... More

We arrived in town in March and were instantly greeted by the lovely Lisa. She was a fabulous host, and on hearing we were travelling for 7 months gave us a room with access to a washer and dryer and detergent as well! The room was great, the breakfast was even better and the people we met were all lovely.... More

My husband and I have stayed at the Modern B & B several times. We have stayed in several different rooms and/or houses that make up the B&B. Each time the houses/rooms are clean, inviting and supper comfy. The morning breakfast is always fresh and delicious. It's located in the funnest part of H-town and a short walk (we ride... More

We stayed for one night before flying back to the UK. Lisa was great, recommending places to eat and drink within walking distance. We had a fantastic evening trying out her recommendations! The neighbourhood is great if you like art, design, independent bars and shops. Breakfast was great, and a good chance to meet others staying at the B&B. I'd... More
