I would say for the price I paid (just under $100/night including taxes and cleaning fees) I was happy with my stay....

About the neighborhood
The studio is just south of downtown Austin. To give you a sense of where we are:
- 1 mile to the convention center
- 1.2 miles to the Congress bridge (bats at night in the fall)
- 1 mile to SoCo (South Congress Avenue) through the neighborhood. If you're a music fan, the Continental Club is on SoCo.
- 1.5 miles to SoFi (South First Avenue) is the same direction. Both offer uniquely Austin shopping and dining.
- 1.5 miles to the 2nd, 4th and 6th Street districts downtown
- 1.7 miles to the Capitol
- 1.5 to ~2 miles you'll find at least three museums
- 2.5 miles to Univ of Texas
- About 1 block to the buses going into downtown and less returning (capmetro.org, routes 7 and 20)
- Across from the Town Lake Hike and Bike Trail, which is up to a 10-mile loop
