Reviewed 24 August 2010

I stayed at the Casulo for one nite - - and that was enough. The noice coming from the atrium kept me up way to long. Didn't get enough sleep and it showed the next day.

Reception lacked much friendliness ad professionalism.

They forgot my wake up call.

Rooms are decorated nice - -but it is trying to be first class and it is NOT!

My husband & I stayed @ the Casulo late July for the weekend. The hotel is new & clean & updated. The location is good, close to downtown Austin & all the action. A few problems... We had a petite suite. The shower door didn't have a strip or build-up to keep water from escaping. The carpet in living area got wet every time we showered. Shower is too small, could barely turn around. The decor was nice overall, but they seemed to be going for an Asian look but didn't take it all the way.There were a lot of small decor & construction issues that could have been better with some attention to detail.It has the feel of a project that ran out of money before completion. Internet was very sluggish & only worked part of the time. Bed was comfortable. Room was good size with loveseat & tv in sitting/living area as well as bedroom. We were on the 1st floor. It was noisy with staff moving around everywhere. Breakfast was complimentary, hot & sufficient, better than most hotels offer. Parking spaces very small in front. Curb appeal could stand some improvement. Overall nice stay but I doubt I would stay again.

We stayed three nights and enjoyed this hotel very much. For the same price as other chain hotels, we are able to get a superior suite. When you also factor in the fact that Wifi is FREE at the Casulo, it makes it even more of a bargain. The suite was spacious with several seating options and chairs for reading. The bed was extremely comfortable and the dim-able lighting throughout the suite added a luxurious detail. The bathroom is enormous. Our room had a mini-fridge. The six foot tub is great for a hot bath and the shower area offers a wall mounted and ceiling mounted fixture. The pool is quite small, but we didn't spend any time there since Austin has so much to see and do. We did not try the hot breakfast or the room service, but observed others enjoying the food. One of the best aspects of this hotel is the location. It's true that the I-35 area in Austin should be avoided between 4pm and 6pm on weekdays, but we had no trouble navigating cross streets. The hotel's location made it easy to take Hwy 71 over to the Barton Creek Mall and Loop 1, and easy to get to downtown. I would definitely stay there again.

Casulo hotel in Austin, Texas is a brand new and very nice and cozy hotel situated in a convenient location which is by the South IH-35 and near downtown Austin. Therefore, from the hotel, within few minutes of driving you can reach most of interested points in Austin, such as, State Capital, Campus of UT at Austin, downtown of Austin, etc.
The hotel is quite excellent in is bed, sheet, blanket, tub, and especially its clean and Zin environment which will let you stretch yourself and get a full relax and rest. Its hot and healthy breakfast will make you get full energy for the coming day. You will love to stay at this hotel and choose to come back for staying again when you have a chance to visit Austin again.

This is my second stay at Casulo and I like it for several reasons: it's independent and I appreciate the small details that come with that. The hotel has a fantastic bathroom. Super hot! It's the small things that make a business trip more enjoyable. Rooms were clean, modern and perfectly appointed for travel. Breakfast was wonderful, plenty of coffee and I really enjoyed the pool/indoor bar & lounge. Overall a great deal.
