“You will feel like you are staying at a boutique downtown Austin hotel with the amenities of an extended stay hotel,” hosts Noura and Joe describe. The apartment is close to 6th Street and the 4th Street Warehouse District, the two biggest nightlife areas of Austin, and includes a walk-in closet, washer, and dryer in unit and a beautiful pool. Even though the listing states that the place can fit up to six people, the previous guest advises that the apartment offers a more comfortable stay up to four people. It’s a wonderful alternative if you prioritize an excellent location.

“Keep Austin Weird” is the city’s motto, and you can experience that vibe in your stay in this private room, part of Blair’s 1904 historic mansion. The bedroom is known as “the blue room” and is part of a house with antique hardwood floors and rooms covered in artwork. This is a one-of-a-kind accommodation in a one-of-a-kind city.
Guest Chris describes: “This house is one unique experience. Stunning old home, beautiful condition, dark wood, flowing floor plan – and every inch of wall; including ceilings covered with art, photography, memorabilia, curiosa. Blair has an eye for the quirky and surreal, which is a truly creative blend with the older traditional design. You could spend days just strolling the house and examining the art.”

This listing has not only been praised for its prime location by guests that traveled for the South by Southwest festival, but also by people that attended conferences at the Austin Convention Center. The room has twin beds and is in a shared condo where hosts Raul and Zac offer other rooms for rent, so the bathroom is shared with other guests. However, the place provides an additional value for a property that is in the middle of the buzz: curtains and double-paned windows that help you minimize the noise. Whether you are in town for the music or for business, it is a fantastic selection.
