Kimber Modern Hotel

Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 11 July 2014

Stayed two nights and we love this place! Will be returning for certain. It's like a luxury bed and breakfast - and their service approach of being "minimally invasive" is wonderful. We stayed in the White Suite - with a wonderful private deck, huge room and very comfy bed and expansive shower and bathtub - all for what a nondescript room in one of the chains on the north side of the river would have cost. Able to walk down to the common room to get coffee or drinks anytime; a choice of chilled beverages COMPLIMENTARY in the room - and in the kitchen in the common area should you run out. And being in the SoCo part of town was great - far better than being up in the big hotels.

My husband and I stayed at the Kimber Modern after our wedding. It was wonderful. We had had so much going on with the wedding and just wanted a few nights with just the two of us. We arranged for a bottle of champagne to be waiting for us at check in and there was a really kind note from the hotel congratulating us. The location was amazing. We didn't do much research on where it was before booking it and we were able to walk everywhere we wanted to go. Our room was very cool and the shower was amazing! We would wake up and make ourselves a coffee in the common room and then venture out for the day. We hardly saw any other guests or staff so it felt like the entire place was just to us. We don't like a lot of fuss and we prefer to do our own thing so this trip was perfect! We will definitely be returning!

My wife and I seek the very best values in hotels wherever we go, as well as high quality and the experience of a strong "hip" factor. The Kimber Modern has all three. If you like clean lines inherent to modern architecture, clean rooms and public spaces inherent to owners with a meticulous eye for detail and the coolest vibe in Austin, you'll love this hotel. No hassles, no problems, no attitudes, no negatives (except maybe a friendly "second" to the previous motion for king beds). This hotel ranks with the best in which we've stayed from the Mandarin chain to the smallest boutique inn. We'll be back!

Room Tip: All rooms are good…you can't go wrong.

Love this review. What a nice compliment to be in the same company as the Mandarin Chain. I'm with you on the king beds. The Kimber Modern Rainey will have all king beds. So glad you stayed with us. Please come back soon.

This small hotel punches above its weight. An interesting, though unassuming facade, greets the visitor. Walking up the well lit stairwell one is greeting by a beautifully treed central court yard. Texas live oaks kiss the sky. A map shows one where to go and the key-less entry makes hotel/room entry a snap. The rooms are light and airy. Mid-century modern buffs will appreciate all the furnishings. The common room was clean and well stocked. The manager and staff were friendly and helpful. It was great to sit around in the court yard and talk with other guests. One block away one encounters all the action/music one needs. Downtown in a half hour walk. The hotel is a quiet oasis situated in the funky locale of SoCo. Definitely a must for boutique hotel lovers.

Room Tip: All the rooms are beautiful, though the suites are bigger.

Decided to check out a local Austin hotel for a one night "stay cation" downtown. We enjoyed the night life of "First Thursday" on S. Congress then short walk back to the hotel for a relaxing finish lounging in the outdoor area before bed. This Kimber Modern location is behind the Continental Club on S. Congress and an incredibly convenient location. Everything about the stay was fantastic. They have uniquely modern interior room decors, but the real emphasis is on the outdoor open area and large room indoor common area. The outdoor area has night lighting, ample seating (even a couple hammocks), beautiful Live Oak tree coverage (including protective tarp from any birds), nice waterfall style water feature, and barrier fence line of bamboo. The features help to reduce and exclude much of the external noise making it feel like an oasis. The indoor common area has fridge with refreshments, snacks set out, a full kitchen, self-serve coffee/espresso/latte/cappuccino, and self-serve water dispenser (still and carbonated). A continental style breakfast is include, which is also self-serve. The owners are very friendly and accommodating and enhance the warm, congenial atmosphere. Once the room is booked you receive key codes that you chose yourself to gain access to the hotel and your room, again making it feel friendly and accommodating, but also making it convenient if your schedule is erratic because there is no need to check in.
The room rates are a little steep, however, reasonable for the area and modest for what's provided. The only negative would be the limited parking, which again is in line with the area. However, additional parking in my opinion is the only knock from 5 stars.

Thank you for the detailed review of your stay cation. We have only five parking spots for seven rooms. Normally there isn't a problem but sometimes there aren't enough spaces and folks have to park on the street. I apologize if you were inconveniened at all. Please come back and stay again.

We recently returned from a visit to Austin. It had been over 25 years since my last visit and much has changed. There is a lot to do, music to hear, wonderful biking system and super good food. We like small boutique hotels that meet our selective criteria: interesting design, "appropriate chill factor", no kids, and a great location. We selected Kimber after carefully considering San Jose and Saint Cecilia. Nothing against the other two establishments but we were very happy with our choice. It hit all marks and then some.They have incorporated a lot of nice details, including keyless locks, a great center kitchen/commons space stocked with good coffees, brew and munchies (hence better than home!), it is super quiet and the design is perfect. We chose one of the three suites and couldn't have been happier. We felt like family there and spoke for a while with management about the property and future plans. Our only knock is that we were in a queen bed - yes only one of the seven rooms has a king! Definitely something they are well aware of and may change down the road. We understand they are opening a second outpost in Rainey - a very cool area northeast of the Kimber. It will be 4-5 X as large. Let's see if they can translate 7 rooms to 30ish. I think they can!

Room Tip: Really liked the blue suite - white has a private patio that could be great...

What a super location - so close to everything in SoCo, and just a place to be able to pause at the end of a busy day touring about Austin. I loved everything about it (my husband was a tad perturbed that we didn't see any of the on-site Managers for almost two days, and he found the breakfasts less than stellar - I found our needs were more than meet). The coffee machine in the common area (available 24/7) makes amazing beverages, the outdoor lounge area was a lovely place to sit and contemplate, and the happy hour beverage offerings were very generous. The rooms are clean, the beds comfortable, and the decorating very calming, Oh, and the M&Ms were appreciated (it is indeed the little things!).
