Area around New Farm was a bit different for us and weren't crazy about old apt complex next door that seemed a bit seedy. Not their fault now is it? Our room was so small that I jokingly told my husband that my horses stall in the barn was bigger. But before long I was captured by the funky, new age Austin like vibe of the area. Great restaurants, shopping, parks. Now the hotel, although the room was tiny it was well appointed, urban feel and the staff was absolutely the best! Breakfast was a wonderful treat and can't wait for dinner tonight. Yes, I would come back and stay here in a heartbeat. Not only that we mainly ran into locals that choose to come here for a stay. Alex was most helpful and a great source of information.
