Vu Guesthouse

3.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Looks very appealing, but the rooms are extremely small. It’s like a small single and it’s more like a rendezvous type of hotel. Not a hotel you would want to stay at for more than 1 night or bring a family to.

Lové this hotel. The rooms could have better lighting but that is only complaint

Rooms could use a mini fridge. Other than that the place was perfect. Very beautiful and clean. The staff was very generous and helpful. We loved our stay!

Got therd and no bellman. Room was hot and turned A/C on. Wohld not get cold. Had diiner reservations. Missed getting ready on time because they moved me. Took 30 min ffrom the time I first called. New guy cohldn'fix it. Ended up moving me to a room the TV did not work. Left after finally getting ready and got room to started cooling down. Was late picking her up. Set the tone for a bad night

Very unique and eccletic hotel with its unusual ambience. Room is clean but compact- shower is located next to bed. Lighting is on the dark side, as there is no ability to turn up the brightness of the room. Overall ok though.

We loved our overnight at the Vu. The room was charming AND edgy, and the staff super friendly. Located on the skirts of Smoketown and a short ride to the ballpark, it's a must. There is no restaurant on site, hence the 4-overall stars, but there is one in the works for later this year. The next time we roll through Louisville, Vu will be in view.

The rooms could use a bit more light, but the staff was very friendly and accommodating and everything was clean. The bed was one of the most comfortable I have slept in for a long time. Will look them up when I am back in town.

Great place for a romantic overnight getaway! Located in downtown area and close to all attractions and riverfront.

Beautiful, modern hotel. Incredible staff. Everything was perfect! This is my go to place in Louisville now!!!

Hello and thank you for your review of our property. We are proud to offer many different room types to meet the needs of our guests. From our spacious 1-bedroom suites that have a separate living room and sitting area with desk to our smaller full studios and queen deluxe rooms - we have a room type that meets most customer needs. Because we only have 2 rooms that have two queen beds in them, our rooms are not designed for large families or parents traveling with kids as we do not have roll-away beds, cribs or sleeper sofas. Our hotel is designed for business travelers, couples and tourist who want to experience the fun and excitement of Louisville. Whether it is a concert at the Yum Center or a conference at the Kentucky Convention Center, we are thrilled that our property has allowed our guests a unique, hotel experience that is only a short hop away from downtown. On behalf of the staff and management, I am sorry we did not meet your expectations. Your feedback is important, and we will use it to make sure that we offer all our guests the best possible experience during their stay. Safe travels home and thank you for sharing your thoughts with us.

Thank you for staying with us! We're glad you enjoyed your stay and apologize for the lack of a restaurant at this time. One of our two restaurants should be opening within a few months with the other to follow shortly after. We look forward to seeing you again!
