We have stayed at the Modern B&B many times. Each time has been wonderful. The rooms are very comfortable and the location is over the top. We look forward to going back.

Room Tip: The treehouse room is gorgeous but if you want to sleep in you should probably choose a different ro...

The house is beautiful and the food fantastic (with wine, tea, coffee, and snacks available throughout the day). The chef will cook you breakfast to order, plus she makes delicious quiches, smoothies, and baked goods. The location for getting to the museum district is perfect and easy, plus there are fantastic restaurants close by. I recommend this to people who like modern design, good food, and don't want a hotel-like atmosphere. It was a bit noisy (sounds/voices from the front door, living room, and kitchen), but if you have ear plugs for sleeping, it's fine. Besides the noise, my only complaint was that the rest of the house was rented by a group in town for a family wedding. So everyone else staying there knew each other well and it felt a little strange like I was in someone else's living room when they were around.

Room Tip: Further from the kitchen and front door is probably quieter.

I really cannot say enough nice things about Modern B&B and Lisa (the proprieter/hostess). Without a doubt the nicest room we've stayed in so far in our drive across the country (best shower and most comfortable bed) - but that's not what makes Modern B&B so special.

Lisa was so happy to accommodate our last minute booking and was friendly and hospitable beyond our wildest expectations. Being entirely unfamiliar with the city, she recommended a number of bars and restaurants within walking distance, helped us with out laundry and just generally made us feel right at home. Breakfast was a delicious and communal experience and just, well - fun.

Fantastic room, fantastic breakfast, fantastic hostess, fantastic location. Would absolutely recommend.

I found modern B&B by accident last year - and if you're staying in Midtown Houston it's really the only choice that has the best location. Midtown is the art center - and this is the only place in the heart of midtown. But what makes the difference is Modern B&B. (By the way - it's not a country cottage type B&B - the interior design and buildings are super modern and amazing structures themselves.) I stay at Modern B&B almost every month - it is truly a home away from home. Lisa the owner and Gina the hospitality manager are super helpful and great. The location is central and there are lots of great places, restaurants, pubs & boutiques nearby. I've stayed at their main building and when we have the kids we've reserved the bungalows (like little houses - very 'midtown') Always I've had an excellent experience. The savings is huge too - to try and do this at a 'hotel' (especially with kids) would cost more than the airfare... we'd have to pay for several rooms to get the space and amenities that Modern B&B provides. Plus I never feel like I'm at a 'hotel' - so if you like inpersonal, commercial hotels that are stacked like ant farms...this is not the place for you.

Like European B&Bs, Lisa's great, modern inn in Midtown Houston provides a super place to stay without the usual sentimentality and sappy frilliness of the typical American B&B. The other folks who stay here are cool, often repeat business travelers who call MBB "home" when they're in Houston. Also, the very fine Menil Collection, nearby, houses guests here who are working with the museum. Restaurants in the local area run the gamut and are the best in Houston. It's like having a home to go to in Houston without having to deal with the dysfunctional family. A great find for the right kind of traveler.

Room Tip: "Treetop" room is really a treat.
