You're paying for location, not amenities.

Posted Jul 18, 2014
Location is the selling point along with a low price. The place was well "used" and a little disorganized. Included a basic cold breakfast and a roof to sleep under. The desirable aspect was the location to everything in the French Quarter.

Charming French Quarter Guest House

Posted Jun 24, 2014
Pros: Overall historic charm Location is good Staff was helpful and friendly A good deal considering proximity to the Quarter
Cons: The furniture and fixtures should be upgraded Improve privacy/security on the balcony facing the street Fridge in room
Location: 10 minute walk to the heart of the Quarter Tours galore (cemeteries, swamps, river, historic, etc.)
Location is good - only a few blocks walk from the Quarter Parking is tight - will probably have to park on street but it seemed safe Staff was helpful and friendly - a good mix of locals and transplants Nice little courtyard in the back Charming New Orleans flair to the hotel and the rooms The furniture should be upgraded - there is an endless supply of antique shops and furniture shops that could help in sprucing the place up while keeping the overall atmosphere The bathroom should be redone - the shower stall was dingy and the bathroom cabinet was falling apart The picture frames should all be replaced - they are too cheap and tacky for some of the pictures in them The bed frame needed to be replaced - part of it was broken at the foot of the bed A quieter A/C would be nice - woke us up in the middle of the night a few times Having a balcony was cool - but it was accessible from the hallway outside our room which makes it a bit nerve racking safety-wise Overall a nice find on Ursuline and Rampart but it has a lot of untapped potential. For a place to crash in the Quarter you can't find a much better deal that is safe.

Very authentic hotel

Posted Jun 11, 2014
We stayed in this place for 2 nights. It was a great place to get a real feel of authentic New Orleans. Within walking distance of the French quarter. The room we stayed in was out the back in the courtyard and the floor was on an angle and the stairs to get to it a little scary. The room was very clean and smelt nice (a relief after the last few hotels we stayed in either smelt like smoke or mould). Bed was comfortable and the air conditioning worked well even though it was a bit noisy. The water had been turned off one morning but the staff let us use another room to shower so it was fine. The staff were extremely friendly and very helpful. I would definitely reccomend this place if you don't want to stay in a stock standard hotel. I would definitely go back if I was to visit again.

Close to French Quarter

Cute and cozy hotel. Room was clean, great hotel patio to hangout and enjoy coffee and/or drinks, and staff was very pleasant. Ten minute walk to Bourbon street and inexpensive parking. I would definitely stay again.

short stay

Posted May 5, 2014
Pros: Location is really good, personal was nice and helpfull and the inside court rather charming.
Cons: Rooms furnitures and decoration - the breakfast is also quite bad. They should rather not include it, as it only give a negative impression
Location: direct to French Quarter, so, very central to reach all what NOLA can afford - Louis Amstrong parc also direct beside the hotel.
Carpet was quite dirty and furnitures/bed not really recent. Bathroom was clean. Nice little court and quiet street. Direct next the French Quarter, so, everything can be done by foot.

We were very comforable there.

Posted Apr 3, 2014
Pros: It was casual and friendly
Cons: The house needs renovating, new curtains and updating.
Location: It was in a wonderful location We were able to walk everywhere. We went shopping, saw some action on Bourban St and heard some great music.
We feel the guest house needs renovating but we were very comfortable there. The staff were very friendly and helpful. We particularly liked the manager Philip as he told us where we could do for different events and for meals.

Cool area

Posted Mar 24, 2014
Cons: An exhaust fan in the bathroom or being able to open a window as there was a lot of condensation and a damp smell if ceiling fan was not going.
Across the road from the French Quarters and a short walk to Bourbon Street, also an easy walk to the rest of the city in a great location that is quite at night.The breakfast was o.k just all sweet cakes. Beautiful building and decor. The front desk people were very friendly and helpful with organizing activities and giving advice, they are only there until 11pm each night and whilst Mardi Gras is on they needed someone there overnight due to some incidents from other guests. The maid left her carpet sweeper in our room for 2 days hence the carpets were not cleaned anywhere in that time and she liked to help herself to all the breakfast item's whilst sitting around texting most of the time not very professional.

WorSt hotel ever!

Posted Mar 19, 2014
Pros: Location
Cons: Cleanliness, hospitality educated owner and workers
sadly the pictures didmy't match the actual place it was run down and not taken care of, the outdoor patio and food area was filthy and neglected. There seemed to be no one taking care of the place. Trash bag sat out for 2 days, ashtrays not emptied. Bathroom floor had hairs all over it and there was used q tips behind the trash can. breakfast was dry, bagged breads and danish. It was awful! I would go on... I would not recommend this hotel or its staff. Im heartbroke I spent my hard earned money there.

Bad hotel

Posted Mar 14, 2014
The experience in this hotel is so terrible. The sheet of bed is so dirty, and the air conditioner does not work. I feel really cold in the night. Moreover the price I reserved that time is 159 per night, so expensive. The hotel is not worthy . I must not choose the hotel anymore
