In the heart of Austin’s UT district, in a neighborhood popular with students
The hotel is located in a shady residential neighborhood to the southwest of the University of Texas campus. Even if you’re not a UT alumnus, the collegiate feel of the surroundings might transport you back to your college days. There are a number of houses in the neighborhood catering to students, as well as fast food restaurants and local businesses. With that in mind, don’t expect to find old homes as well-restored as the mansion housing the hotel.
Downtown Austin is a short drive or bus ride away, and several of the UT attractions are within 20 minutes’ walking distance.
Hotel Ella is closed for renovations through September 1, 2013. We are in the process of updating our review.
