Hotel Ylem, Houston
Unique place to stay.
Here for day surgery. The hotel was eclectic and very unique. Enjoyed our stay thoroughly. Room was very clean and neat as was the hotel.

Loved this quaint hotel the first night! Then at noon the second day, there was no hot water. Staff said it was a boiler problem and was being addressed. No hot water that night or the next morning!! Checked out to go to MDA and wrote an email complaint to the manager that was never answered!

Excellent hotel with an exceptional staff
The customer service here is incredible!!! The rooms are clean, the beds are super comfortable. I felt important and cared about. The hotel has a cute boutique look and feel and supports non-profits with their gift shop sales. This will become my first choice of hotel on my future trips to Houston.

Bad experience
The room looks nice and clean with creative decoration, but they had a show going on downstairs, making a lot of noise and music was so so loud!!! We could hear everything clearly in our room! If you call this a hotel, they should think about their guests! I've never been in a situation like this! I believe their actions was very unthoughtful.

Clean, quiet room in an interesting hotel
We loved this hotel. It's kitschy and interesting. It was quiet, which we wanted, as my husband had a procedure at MD Anderson the next morning. There were USB and regular plugs on the sides of the headboard which we found both interesting and certainly useful, as there are rarely enough plugs in hotel rooms. This hotel has been redone, and you can certainly tell, so you'll see flaws in the work and sloppy areas, but it's not enough to detract from the nice room at a reasonable rate. If we need to stay overnight again we will stay at this hotel for sure.
