Kimber Modern Rating: 3.5 Pearls
South Congress, Austin, Texas

Oyster Review Summary

Photos and Review by Oyster.com Investigators

Pros

  • Trendy South Congress location
  • Hotel common area features an Apple iMac and printer, Arne Jacobsen seating, and full kitchen with espresso machine
  • Mid-century modern rooms have flat-screen TVs and mini-fridges
  • Shaded courtyard has hammocks and a 25-foot water feature
  • Sexy bathrooms offer spacious walk-in showers with rainfall showerheads, and Malin+Goetz toiletries
  • Free daily breakfast
  • Free Wi-Fi throughout the property

Cons

  • No pool
  • Hotel can book up quickly (as there are only five rooms)

Bottom Line

This stylish boutique hotel in South Austin has only five guest rooms, and caters to guests looking for a truly private and relaxing hideaway. An outdoor courtyard is shaded by tall trees and features a sleek water feature and hammocks. Just off the courtyard is the hotel's common area, where guests will find cool mid-century modern seating, a trendy Apple iMac computer and printer, and a full kitchen. The bright and airy rooms all have platform beds with comfy bedding, iPod docks, LCD TVs, and white decor. Suites have spacious bathrooms with freestanding tubs, and each room has a mini-fridge. But it's worth comparing rates with the nearby (and just as hip) Hotel San Jose.

Oyster Hotel Review

 Location

In South Congress, near shopping, dining, and major music venues

Kimber Modern resides in Austin's South Congress (SoCo) neighborhood. Known for vintage clothing boutiques and a lively music scene, SoCo is home to some of the state's most iconic music venues, including Emo's, the Moody Theatre, the Paramount Theatre, and the Continental Club. The hotel is near tons of funky clubs and restaurants, and is a short walk from Town Lake.

The capital city of Texas and home to the University of Texas, Austin is a kooky mix of straight-laced business types and creative artists. The city gains attention each year with annual festivals, including Austin City Limits and SXSW (South by Southwest).

  • 1- to 3-minute walk to coffee and ice cream shops
  • 1-to 4-minute walk to local art galleries
  • 3- to 6-minute walk to shopping and dining

  • 5-minute drive to the Paramount Theatre
  • 7-minute drive to Ziller Park
  • 8-minute drive to Festival Beach
  • 8-minute drive to Austin Amtrak
  • 9-minute drive to Lakeshore Park
