The Gateway Guesthouse is our current go-to B&B in Austin. Very high quality and delicious breakfast. And the Beds are super comfortable. Our favorite room is the Master Retreat because its huge and nicely furnished. We have also stayed in the loft and found it very cozy and warm. But beware the stairs are steep. For those who are interested in experiencing downtown, on our last visit we took the 7 bus, which picks up across the street, into downtown and spent the evening on 6th street. After a night of drinking we took a very short taxi ride back to the Guesthouse and were very pleased that we did not have to drive our car into downtown traffic, or drink and drive. Also, my husband enjoys swimming in Big Stacy in the mornings, it is a natural spring fed swimming pool, only a 5 minute walk away. We will continue to come back to the Guesthouse and fully recommend it to others.
