About our Serviced Apartments in Austin
Citybase Apartments now feature stunning serviced apartments in the city of Austin, Texas. These idyllic self-catered apartments are situated across the city. The Harry Ransom Center is a library and museum at the University of Texas, with a plethora of literary texts, photographs and rare books. The key attractions are a Gutenberg Bible (one of only 26 in the world) and the View from the Window at Le Gras, the oldest existing photograph. It also houses Jack Kerouac’s travel journal, Edgar Allen Poe’s writing desk, and two paintings by Frida Kahlo. Metropolitan Park is the jewel in the crown of Austin’s parks and open spaces. The park is home to Barton Springs Pool, gorgeous botanical gardens, a sculpture park and a Nature centre. It features open air theatre in summer and a Kite Festival every March. Barton Springs Pool is a federally protected habitat and home to the endangered Barton Springs Salamander – but still open for people to swim. The pool is bordered by soft, grassy sward and kids can learn more about the area at Splash! An educational exhibit. The Domaine shopping village is a fantastic place to pick up upscale and high street fashion items, with retailers varying from H&M to Luis Vuitton. If you want some authentic cowboy boots, head to Allen’s Boots – quality, but not cheap. The high street has the regular shops, and you can also pick up some interesting tea, cheese and deli meats in the town centre.
New to serviced apartments?
Serviced apartments offer around 30% more space than a hotel, and a great deal more privacy. You get high quality kitchen facilities, living space and bedrooms; along with reception, concierge and maid service. Sushi lovers will love Uchi and Uchiko, outstanding restaurants owned by the same award winning chef. They aren’t a cheap option, but their ‘happy hour’ prices are a lot more affordable. For more traditional Texan cuisine, head to the Franklin Barbecue for the most delicious barbecued meat in Texas; you’ll have to wait, but consensus is that it’s worth it. For Italian, head to Pieous, for delicious homemade style pizzas and juicy pastrami sandwiches. If you fancy a gourmet version of that other Texan classic, the beef burger, check out Hopdoddy Burger bar, featuring organic Angus beef, bison patties, and even a vegetarian option. Want to do real self-catering in your apartment kitchen? For healthy foods, visit the flagship Whole Foods store, or head to Austin’s Farmers Market. You can buy sweets and puddings from Lammes Candies, or the Sweetish Hill Bakery. There are also numerous supermarkets and grocers for general ingredients. Let our team of vacation professionals find you the best space for your visit, whether you are a solo traveller, part of a couple, or taking your whole family.
