“Quirky and romantic vibe in this Austin hotel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 11, 2013

I found that this hotel was a perfect fit for me and my spouse's weekend getaway to Austin. The location isn't actually horrible. It isn't in the downtown area, but it isn't far away either. It's right next to the highway, at most five minutes away from all the action. I loved the fun, quirky decorations in the halls, and the room was really awesome. They decorated it with cool, romantic lighting. It was very clean, and everything had a very zen feel. The breakfast could have had more variety, but it had everything you needed. I found the stay to be very enjoyable, with very courteous and informing staff, clean quiet rooms, and the right atmosphere for a fun and romantic experience. On top of that, for Austin prices, what we paid wasn't hald bad either. I would definitely reccomend this hotel.

I've stayed here the past couple of weeks and have really enjoyed my stay. The first night I was here I was in a king deluxe and loved the room and the hospitality I received. The room was top notch and the restroom was definitely a great addition to my stay (the teak floors and shower with rain shower head was amazing!). Absolutely have loved my stay here and will recommend to all my friends to stay here when they are in Austin!!

Room Tip: Loved the King Deluxe room for anyone wanting a get away!

I love this unique hotel. However, it is not for everyone. Not your average Marriott or Hyatt. It is beautifully furnished in upscale and contemporary furnishings. The sleep experience is superb! Luxury bedding and mattresses. Staff is laid back, as is the hotel. The only shortcoming is the bar/lounge is rarely open, so do not expect a late night drink by the hot tub. Easy enough. BYOB. As for location, it is 10 minutes away from trendy South Congress, with bars, restaurants and shopping. This is the perfect stay for couples who want a romantic get-away.

Really interesting rooms and high quality materials at this quirky Asian themed hotel. Good prices for the design you get. The tile work, Moen fixtures, great tubs, large rooms make the hotel stand out. But on a Sunday evening we could not get a bottle of wine for our anniversary night (bartender took the key home with him). Continental breakfast was just awful. Pastries from 7 Eleven? Good location. Good air conditioning. I would stay there again.

Disappointing stay. Booked online as a boutique zen property with cocktail lounge and cafe, as advertised. I arrived to an empty parking lot and dark lobby. I booked a suite that included a hot breakfast. I asked about the lounge and was told it was no longer open. This wasn't disclosed at the time of booking? The room was decent but the carpet was worn and coming apart at the bathroom entry. Two dead cockroaches were found in the bathroom. The bed and pillows were comfortable. Before leaving, I checked out the "Hot Breakfast" only to find a continental set up. I was hoping for something cool but was sadly disappointed.

Someone needs to read his or her Zen book again. Also, we were informed that the bar and cafe had closed (we were told not profitable) before our arrival, though both were still advertised on their website. Front desk agent was pleasant. No general manager on site to speak to (Friday at 5:00 p.m.), though I was told she would be there the next morning. Saturday, again, I was told she was not onsite. Stains on our carpet and ceiling. The room was large and comfortable. Serious freeway noises from our third floor room. The value was way off compared to the price we paid.

Room Tip: Major freeway traffic noise heard in our third floor room.
