“Felt like home! (But sooo much better.)”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 11, 2013

Absolutely loved this modern boutique treehouse getaway right in the heart of SoCo, within walking distance of everything you'd want to do/see in Austin. Our hosts were lovely and attentive, and we felt at home immediately. The room was comfortable, simple yet elegant, and SPOTLESS. Loved the touches like water in carafes and oversize pump products from Malin & Goetz, and keyless entry. Breakfast and snacks were delish, and the continual open fridge policy (which included wine and beer, and non-airy alternatives for my coffee!) was very thoughtful and much appreciated. The ONLY things I could find to nit pick (and I'm reaching) are I wish there was a full-length mirror in the room, and that the coffee, while tasty, wasn't very hot - it cooled very quickly and there wasn't a microwave to reheat. But honestly, overall I was extremely pleased with my stay, will definitely be back if I'm in Austin again and have already recommended it very highly many times. GO! Worth every penny.

Room Tip: Can't go wrong!

Thank you for a wonderful review!! I am so happy you enjoyed your stay! I like the idea about a full length mirror and why not? We could put it in the closet, behind the door. We hope you can make it back to Austin and try out our new Kimber on Rainey opening 2015. Your imput is appreciated.

Absolutely loved this hotel. The design is exquisite and the amenities wonderful. It was a modern treehouse oasis in the heart of trendy SoCo. Would definitely stay again and recommend to anyone going to Austin. Thank you to Cassie for being such an attentive host.

Have to say that this is one of best boutique hotels I've experienced. Love the keyless entry, the modern architecture, the decor and comforts of the room. The breakfast granola and pastries were super. Coffee is incredible:)

I thought the hotel was amazing. Modern. Private. A one of kind type of stay. This hotel would be my first choice if I was to visit Austin again. It is in a great area walking distance to quaint shops and drinking establishments. However, the hotel itself is the selling point. It is just wonderful & everyone I encountered was gracious, helpful and friendly. Fantastic.

OMG having been round the world a few times it is rare to find such an amazing hotel, serene setting, fab decor, nice people. Having the best time here. Walking distance to groovy eateries and views of downtown to boot. Coming to Austin there is nowhere else to stay but here (apparently they are expanding to Portland, Oregon too).

Truly a great experience.

Room Tip: I got the end room if you want extra privacy.

The circumstances of our booking the Kimber Modern were out of necessity as we live in the Austin area and were flooded out of our apartment from leaky pipes above... (we stayed 8/25-8/28)

From our booking to our arrival and greeting from Kimber, the experience was ethereal. She was more than kind as she pulled out an extra bottle of wine and left a small offering of fresh flowers in a mini-vase at our door while we were unwinding in the common area. I'm thinking we looked a little stressed!

Kimber and Carrie truly went above and beyond to accommodate us as we did not know when we would be able to return home. We stayed in the lovely Orange room for one evening and then the Green room for two evenings.

I love, love, loved the breakfast and enjoyed preparing bagels, fruit and lattes from their fabulous machine in the morning. The afternoon snacks were just as wonderful from the cheese and dried fruit to the delicious chocolate covered almonds and M&M's.

The outdoor areas were quiet and peaceful (sans Sunday night when Valet Waste was emptying the never ending river of glass bottles from the apartments on the other side of the fence).

The area is uber-convenient to all the great things SOCO has to offer, especially if you are an out of town guest. It was almost too dangerous being so close to Burro and Amy's. Haha!

Thank you KM for a home away from home and making our stay enjoyable, relaxing and stress free. We'll be back to truly enjoy ourselves soon.

Room Tip: We stayed in the Orange room for one evening (courtyard, right next to main area) and in the Green r...

Attention to detail is so important when I chose a special getaway for my spouse and I.

If you are looking for an up-scale, relaxed hotel in the heart of Austin with NO hassle for check-in and amenities, look at Kimber Modern.

What I read in these reviews was confirmed and I see how it is the top rated boutique hotel in Austin. You will not be disappointed. From the beautiful courtyard to the help yourself cocktail area, you will feel right at home without someone looking over your shoulder "trying" to make you feel at home.

Come prepared with the right attitude that you are family and there is no hassle and you will not be disappointed.
