GREAT spot - I'll be back, for sure!

I knew I wanted to do something fun for my birthday but didn't have time to put much thought towards planning. HOTELette ended up being the PERFECT slumber party staycation celebration spot. I had 6 of my best ladies over for pizza, wine, and games - and 4 stayed the night. We each had our own room, which we all agreed were super cozy. The decor and ambiance are to die for...we thoroughly enjoyed walking through every room ewing and awing over every detail. I highly recommend renting HOTELette for any occasion or need to get away. Bravo to the incredibly talented founder and designer for the brilliant concept and her impeccable taste.

Thank you, Erin! Now, we have to get you to HOTELette Nashville, because that's the only HOTELette you haven't visited. Please come back soon! Allison

Beautiful House in a Perfect Location

We rented this house for two nights my Bachelorette party in late June 2018. There was 6 of us, but it would have been easy sleeping for 8! There were 4 beautifully-decorated bedrooms -- each room had its own unique flair! The master bedroom has a king bed, while the other three bedrooms have queens. Three bedrooms upstairs (including the master) share one bathroom, while the bedroom downstairs has its own bathroom. The kitchen has updated appliances and is stocked for cooking, but we didn't get too hands on in the kitchen over the weekend we were staying, since the house is SO close to the heart of the South Congress neighborhood. Jo's coffee is one block away, and it's an easy walk to other cute shops and plenty of restaurants (Hopdoddy burgers, Torchy's tacos, plenty of food trucks, etc). The Hotel San Jose two blocks away is the perfect place to stop in for a glass of the MOST AMAZING frose! For a Bachelorette Party, we would have love to have seen an extra full-length mirror (or two) in the upstairs bedrooms. For 6 high-maintenance ladies getting ready to go out at night, there is limited space to do so. We also had a little bit of confusion/struggle with the keybox outside, but got the hang of it by the second day. The main notification system gives you a 10-digit code to enter the house, but that actually is not used for anything. You will need to go into the rental portal in order to find the 4-digit lock box code. Overall, our stay was amazing and we'd gladly come back to this house again!! But maybe at a time of year that is slightly cooler (it was over 100-degrees when we stayed) :)

amazing house, awesome city, best weekend!

This house was incredible. I knew it was going to be great from the pictures, but they actually don’t do it justice. The decor and vibe were perfect for our girls weekend. It was a short $8 cab ride to all of our destinations. All 7 guests were extremely happy with our stay and all want to return to Austin and this house! 1000000% reccommend!!!!!!

Gorgeous Mid-Century Modern House for 6 girls!

I have only nice things to say about our stay in Austin. The house was a short walk away from South Congress, and right around the corner from Jo's Cafe. The neighborhood was incredibly safe for the 6 of us girls, and it was extremely accessible to Ubers and Lyfts when going out at night. The house itself was immaculate and slept 8 comfortably (we had anticipated only 3 beds, but there were 4!). The outside back patio was beautiful with string lights that lit up the sitting area in the evenings. The owner is an interior designer (we ran into her briefly and was SO lovely), so of course the decor was gorgeous - everything was mid-century modern and minimalist in design, aptly fitting the overall feel of Austin. The kitchen was spacious and clean; the living rooms/sitting areas were perfect for hanging around; and the 2 bathrooms were perfect for the 6 of us. Highly recommend this to anyone looking for a home for a girls' weekend away or a smaller bachelorette party!

Excellent-- great location

We stayed here for a girls weekend. The location is great- walking distance to many bars, shops and restaurants. $5 Uber to downtown and other attractions. It was clean with comfortable bedding. The house was really cute!

Great spot in Austin!

Two couples spent a long weekend at Hotelette for a wedding/New Years. It was a beautiful and comfortable place to spend time and was in the absolutely perfect location! Another couple would have fit very comfortably!

Thank you, Michelle, for your glowing review. Glad you had a fabulous time at HOTELette and please visit us again soon! Allison

High style home in a perfect location!

3 women on a business trip shared this house and we loved it! It was beautifully styled, we loved the artwork, the beds are really comfortable. Located just off Southern Congress, we could walk to restaurants, lots of shopping there, too, although we did not have time for that. When we were going to other neighborhoods, it was a 1-minute wait for an Uber driver. The house was spotless and had everything we needed. Will definitely stay here again.

Thank you, Tracie, for your kind works. We work very hard to make sure the house is spotless! Thank you again for your compliments.
