My beau and I stayed here on Valentine’s night to escape my cat (he is allergic) and his roommate (we wanted “couple” time). Making reservations online was easy; I had great communication with the owners via email. I chose room one because their site billed it as a place for extra privacy. It is the only room in the house with an external entrance. The bed was extremely comfy, the bathroom very clean. Two robes were included as were some bathing products. We elected to have our breakfast in bed, which was extra but so worth it. The food (incredible) was the same as what other guests had in the dining room, but there is just something marvelous about breakfast in bed. We were also treated to a pitcher of mimosas. The only down part was the noise level outside of our windows. Austin Folk House is within walking distance of the University of Texas and its infamous “Drag.” This can be a positive or negative, depending on your point of view. Earplugs were in our room (provided by the staff) so obviously this has been a past issue. I have no idea about noise level in the rest of the house. If you are use to city nighttime noises, this won’t be a problem for you. I would recommend this place for any parents visiting their student at UT or for those who want to stay in Central Austin (at a reasonable price). Regarding the staff, I simply can’t say enough nice things. One more note: Austin Folk House has been voted best Bed & Breakfast by the readers of our local weekly for three years in a row.
