The location can't be beat, far enough from 6th St so you can sleep but close enough that you don't have to worry about driving home.

Almost everything to do is within walking distance and with the new bike share station across the street you can easily get anywhere you want to go in minutes. Unbelievable location!

Other Things to Note

Congress Avenue is the main promenade in downtown Austin. It's the widest street in downtown and runs right through the middle up to the Capitol. Preservation Austin has created a free mobile app, called Historic Austin Tours, to guide you through Congress Avenue. The apartment is in the middle of the tour!

Overall Guest Satisfaction
Check In
  • The loft was absolutely perfect. We actually live just a few blocks away, but wanted somewhere special to stay for our wedding night. Everything was very clean and the view of the capitol was lovely! We are excited to have discovered a great place to stay near our home and will certainly recommend it to family and friends who visit in the future! The hosts were incredibly accommodating and worked with our busy weekend wedding schedule and our need to check in a little early. The roses on the counter were a special touch for our wedding weekend! Thank you again!

  • Raquel and Jacobs apartment is fantastic, situated in a great location with a lovely view of the State Capital building.

    Our previous accommodation canceled on us only 24 hours prior to arriving in Austin. Thank fully Raquel and Jacob were great communicators making the booking process very quick and very smooth.

    One comment, which is a personal preference, the bed is very soft so if you have trouble sleeping on a soft mattress, you may struggle here. Otherwise the apartment is very comfortable and clean.

    Thanks Raquel and Jacob!

  • Communicating with the host was fast and easy. Their instructions and recommendations were great and the keyless entry was so convenient when I got in after 10pm.

  • Incredible location in Austin. Clean, functional and very pleasant place to stay, right the heart of the city. Raquel and Jacob made it simple to check in and out (keyless entry is great). They are friendly and they also provide a very professional experience. And don't forget the great Capitol View. If I get back to Austin, this is the only place where I want to stay.

  • I stayed at this loft over the past weekend with my sister. I was in town for an Open House Day at UT for a graduate school program and the location for us (without a car) was perfect. Super easy getting to and from
    The airport to the apartment - there is a "100" bus stop a couple blocks down on 3rd and Congress. We found this easier than the provided directions. The apartment itself is great - very cutely decorated and super comfy bed plus you can't beat the capital view from the window. The hosts were very communicative and easily reached. We had no problems but I'm sure they'd be very responsive if anything would have come up. They even let us leave our bags for an extra hour until we headed back to the airport, much better than lugging them around Greenbelt. The keyless entry also makes for a very smooth, no hassle check in. No regrets choosing this spot from air Bnb and I would definitely recommend it to friends, family, and fellow air Bnb-ers. Thanks for the enjoyable stay!

  • Great location, very clean apartment. Raquel and Jacob were responsive to our questions over text and email. This place is definitely a good value. The apartment is ideal for one person or a couple, as the living room windows face a main street and there is light and noise from the street. But, the daybeds were comfortable and we found a white noise machine in the closet, so it all worked out!
