Kimber Modern Hotel
Ranked #1 of 36 Austin B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed April 12, 2011

My husband and I just got back from our lovely stay at Kimber Modern. It's a beautifully crafted, serene space. The hotel seems to be its own entity that operates silently and efficiently. The staff is very friendly and pick up on the first ring to answer any questions you have.

I would say this is more of a boutique hotel, they do provide light fare for breakfast, beverages and snacks for happy hour. Within walking distance, there are so many restaurants, diners and the row of trailer food dining is a unique experience in itself, make sure to stop at Hey Cupcake! for some yummy goodness.

Keep in mind the location is right off South Congress. It's a bustling, active area and understandably there will be some noise especially in the evening.
The "balcony" rooms are off the street and the "courtyard" rooms are set in the back.
We did not have any trouble with noise in our courtyard room (which was upgraded to the Red suite for free since we happened to be hanging out in the commons area).

We had a wonderful stay and recommend it to anyone wanting a unique hotel experience in a great location! Will definitely return.

I travel all over the world for work and the Kimber Modern is my favorite boutique hotel in the world. It's in the heart of the South Congress area, it's modern yet warm, the small staff is wonderful, and there are even snacks/wine/beer out in the afternoon, and a nice breakfast in the common area in the morning. It's a little oasis.

Location couldn't be better. The Manager Sarah, was very helpful with restaurant and transportation needs! Clean, modern & new! The green space patio is a joy to relax in after a day out. The happy hour spread was tremendous and the breakfast spread perfect for getting started. Thanks for a great Mom/BFF break! ;)

The Kimber Modern is my favorite hotel in Austin.
The rooms are spacious, the beds comfortable.
The staff is friendly and accommodating (and super cool!).
It's located just steps away from everything, yet still offers the peace and quiet you need after a long day at SxSW.

My boyfriend and I were looking for a warm getaway from snowy New England, and we found Kimber Modern through Travel & Leisure. It did not disappoint. We absolutely loved it. We stayed in the White Suite, which featured a gorgeous, tiled bathroom with tub big enough for two and a private outdoor patio shaded by an old, sprawling tree. The common areas are comfortable and beautifully designed. We enjoyed breakfast, happy hour and the delicious coffee that's available 24/7. The staff is friendly and helpful; we appreciated the fantastic restaurant recommendations. The hotel is also perfectly located in the center of the hip So Congress neighborhood, but sufficiently off the beaten path. Kimber Modern is now our Austin hotel.

I travel to Austin often, and I promise you, Kimber Modern is the nicest, most beautifully designed hotel you can stay at in the city. Upon close inspection, you can tell it was built by talented architects....everything is such quality (the moldings, door handles, lighting, bathroom hardware). It also doesn't hurt that the hotel is decorated with insanely expensive furniture. I don't want to discredit other beautiful hotels in Austin (San Jose, Saint Cecilia), but Kimber has this serenity and peace about it that is hard to find at hotels.

I noticed another poter complained about the breakfast. Well, if you want to gorge yourself all morning, go to IHOP. KImber is about quality over quantity. The fruit salad is killer, and the baked goods are local. It's all self serve, which I love. Nobody is there to watch you, so you can go back for seconds if you'd like :) Muesli, juices, jams, yogurts, and other high quality items are also available. Their espresso/coffee machine makes a great cup and is available all day, as well as wine and beer for happy hour!

I feel like I'm promoting this hotel, and... I sorta am. I would just like everyone to have the chance to experience it. Maybe I'll be sorry.... i just tried to book in April and they're full. Kimber, you're the best!

Stayed at the Kimber Modern when my wife and I had the chance to get away for a few days. The room is different than most hotel rooms but we found it to be very comfortable and functional. The bed was very comfortable and we really liked the large shower and bath products. Other things to like: Free parking on site; included light breakfast of high quality items such as fresh fruit salad, bagels with spreads, yogurts, etc.; the happy hour with complimentary beer, wine, fine cheese and crackers, nuts, fruit, etc.; located right next to South Congress. We really liked the keyless security system and felt very secure inside the property. Loved the interior courtyard space - perfect for relaxing on a pretty day. Would highly recommend this as an alternative to the big hotels. It was a great experience.
