Great place to stay in Austin.
The room was very clean, modern, and comfortable. Access to the facility and parking were very easy. It’s located at the prime location in South Austin, very close to everything.

Great stay in Austin
Great location! Easy and walkable to Congress Street. Plenty of restaurants and shopping in the neighborhood. Accommodation. Comfortable and clean, like new!

Unexpected Frustrations
The room itself was great, HOWEVER, Sonder requires that you download their app and jump through several other hoops before you can receive check-in details. I was not informed of this by or Sonder at the time of booking. I did not know this until I called trying to figure out where the instructions were. Then then repeatedly told me I had not followed the instructions I never received. Had I known this, I would have selected a different option.

Awesome Stay at Sonder South Congress!
Stayed at the Sonder South Congress with my husband for a weekend getaway adventure in Austin & it was an amazing experience! It was such a good call to stay there instead of a big hotel. The location is ideal - right on the South Congress strip of restaurants, shopping, & nightlife. It has a great neighborhood feel vs being right downtown. We absolutely loved our little "home" for the weekend! The condo was easy to find & access with incredibly helpful, detailed instructions. It also included covered garage parking a short walk from the building. The condo itself was impeccably clean & adorably decorated with all the usual conveniences of a hotel - extra toiletries, towels, & bedding - plus in-unit laundry, dinnerware provided in the kitchen, etc. Thanks to Sonder for a memorable, relaxing vacation experience!!!

Great space, amenities and location
This was a great value! Centrally located in SoCo neighborhood, good security, free WiFi, quiet location, comfortable and modern furnishings. We loved having full kitchen and washer/dryer. When we had questions, we had quick response and assistance.

My stay
It was very clean and efficient but a lack of local amenities made getting food bit awkward. Overall, quite good but not recommend for a long stay. Also a lack of elevators makes getting luggage upstairs a chore.

Very nice and clean! Long stair case when entering but was not an issue for this stay. Close to shopping and eating! Prime spot!

Great location, some quirks.
Location is amazing, walking distance to great spots and just a ride away from so much more. The upstairs neighbor though is so incredibly loud. Everyday at 550 AM woken up by clomping, stomping, yelling, dog barking. The noise went on for hours. Also the space is clean but the vents for the AC were filthy. My husband and I are highly allergic to dust and every morning it felt like a pound of dust in our lungs. Luckily my husband is a heavy sleeper and we were out of the space most of the day.
