Modern B & B

About

Escape from the traditional. An award winning architect designed this amazing B&B. Eighteen rooms, great amenities such as an expobar espresso machine, guest kitchen, and self-serve laundry as well as the industry standards: wireless internet and cable TV. Our top-shelf rooms have their own private floors with whirlpools for 2 and large balconies. The Cayman/Chickadee is our two-room family suite with a shared bath; the Mod rooms are on the bottom floor with street-level entrances. We serve a full breakfast. Enjoy fresh smoothies, a fresh-baked good, local eggs, 10 grain waffles, etc. We love to cook!! Close to Menil Museum, Rothko Chapel, Medical Center, Downtown and the Galleria.

Modern B&B

3.6 on January 04, 2017

Overall, the room was nice but I have 2 complaints. First, we could not get the TV to turn on. Second, we could see where there was Wi-Fi available but we didn't have the passcode. I called the number on our confirmation email but got voice mail and nobody ever returned my call.


Great time

Definitely not your average

The Modern is great quality quirky eclectic accommodation with brilliant personal service. Be sure that if you want to just check in & be left alone you an do that, but what's the fun? Julie & her team are a great bunch of interesting characters & did a stunning job of ensuring I felt much more like a house guest than a customer. They are knowledgeable about the local activities & attractions, including gems of pragmatic info you don't get in standard tourist offerings. The location is great being out of the madness of downtown & close to the excellent Museum District. Thoroughly recommended. Will definitely stay again.


Great location and great people...

I've stayed at several Houston B&B. Modern B&B was such a pleasant experience. Great location for museums and restaurants. Staff was so friendly and helpful. Unique communal breakfast table enabled me to meet and mix with interesting people over great food. Hosts went the extra mile to accommodate my requests. I'll be back. Debra B.

I stayed for 2 nights in the Cayman Room, which had a Jack and Jill bathroom connecting to a room my mother stayed in for one night. Other family members had rooms there as well and Lisa was so gracious, making sure we were all comfortable and had everything we needed. I will definitely stay again!


Great place!

We've stayed here several times and love it. There's always interesting conversation with the other guests at the breakfast table.


Modern, funky decor with good service

My husband and I were looking for a place to stay in the Montrose district of Houston and the Modern B&B came up on a google search. It looked interesting so I booked 2 nights. It more than met my expectations. We lvd the open, modern feel of the place, and our room had a stunning view of the skyline from our balcony. The staff was helpful but not faning which we appreciated. The breakfast was delicious. We can highly recommend it.


Love this place

I love the spirit about this place and will stay here again. For a bit of constructive criticism, I did have issues with wifi. The speed was so slow.It was difficult to have any page load in a timely manner and streaming was impossible. I did not have a chance to speak with the owner/manager about this. Maybe it was just the particular day I was there.


Awesome!
