“The only hotel I book in Austin”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 July 2012

Have stayed here several times. If you like privacy, self sufficient access to breakfast, snacks, gourmet coffee and beverages (and full kitchen if you really need it), and a wonderful modern aesthetic this is your place. When service is required, the very cool and accomodating staff are only a call away. Beds are comfy-baths are divine. These guys think of EVERYTHING!
The suites and rooms in the rear are the best- you can get some club noise from the front rooms, but all part of SoCo.

I used this site to select our hotel. I read the reviews, and the reviews were spot on. The Kimber Modern was wonderful. My two daughters and I stayed in the white suite...which was spacious, spotless, very private, and the bed was SO comfortable. Even the bath products were upscale! Not to mention...a complimentary mini bar...and we all know that does not happen often. If you can afford this room, it is worth the extra expense! The happy hour was a favorite for us...exotic nuts, cheese and speciality crackers...and not to leave out the wine and beer! Breakfast welcomed us each morning with fresh fruit, bread, organic hard boiled eggs and bagels, if you choose...along with the smiling, friendly face of Paco (one of the excellent staff members at the hotel). The hotel itself is located near busy SoCo...but once you enter the lobby door...and make your way upstairs...you are in an outdoor, quiet paradise...water feature, plants and all! We were so glad to have picked SoCo versus downtown too...everything was within walking distance and to get downtown it is just a very, short bus ride! We did not want to hassle with a car. All and all...this architecture marvel was perfect, and I would highly recommend staying at the Kimber Modern! Thanks again for having us Kimber, and it was such a pleasure to meet you and your staff.

Room Tip: The white suite was worth the extra money...private outdoor patio area! We slept 3 adults in that r...

You cannot beat the location of this cool hip boutique style hotel.
It is right off South Congress and the great area of SOCO.
We walked to shops, restaurants, viewing of the bats under the bridge,
and all of the downtown area attractions.
BUT the main reason to stay here is the Kimber itself! The exterior has a cool modern edge but as you proceed up the entry steps you are immersed into a garden zen accompanied by waterfalls, hammocks and comfortable lounge seating.
You dont check in but are given a key code which allows your entrance into the hotel and lounge and your room.
In the early evening they set out munchie snacks and cool drinks; even had beer and wine.
It is self serve and comes with a stocked kitchen including a 24 hr barista machine we used late night for espressos.
In the mornings a wonderful organic breakfast was set out: yogurts, whole grain breads and bagel, granola , fruit and soy milk, regular milk etc... The best OJ ever!!!
There are newspapers, a MAC desktop and various readings on AUSTIN and its scene.
This place contains all of this for your room price.
The rooms are COOL! with wonderful bath products, robes, flat screen TVS and our personal favorite : A CEILING FAN!
We WILL be back and will spread the word about this incredible place.
BY The Way though, we did drive by the #2 boutique hotel the HEYWOOD(Kimber was #3) and
although it looked like it could be interesting, it was in a very UNDESIREABLE location!
and on top of that you would have to drive everywhere....(cause you wouldnt want to hang around those parts if you know what I mean....sorry Heywood!)

It's very seldom I come across the perfect B&B and the Kimber Modern is in every single, possible way. We stayed for four nights and had a delightful time. It's a great spot, hidden away from the hustle and bustle of the SoCo area, but still quiet and peaceful in the evenings.

The Kimber offers everything a modern traveller could ask for. The rooms are pretty spacious, the bedlinen are prestine, the mattress not too soft and it's got large despensers of my favourite beauty stuff - Malin & Goetz.

The breakfast is great - fresh baked bagels, yoghurt, fruit, granola and banana cake. An automatic coffee machine for free use. A really nice touch was the afternoon happy hour where we could try some great cheese and interesting wine/beers.

The code system had an initial hiccup - we couldn't access our room due to a faulty code being put in - but Kimber the owner turned up within 5 minutes of us arriving to sort it out.

Room Tip: If I come again I would choose another room than ours (Orange) as I'm a very light sleeper and I...

We loved the Kimber Modern. Situated just off of South Congress in a trendy, artsy area that's just a short walk to the Continental Club, restaurants,shops etc sits this small boutique hotel most notable for it's bright and modern but warm design. The beautiful shaded courtyard just outside of our room was my favorite spot.
