I don't usually write reviews, but in this case I can't resist. Napoleon's Retreat is among the top five B&Bs I've had the privilege of frequenting. The place is a gem. High ceilings and airy rooms, quiet, perfect hostpitality, nestled in a gracious historic neighbourhood and within walking distance of fine dining and a gorgeous public park. It's a hike... More

We stayed here for one night as part of a road trip across America. Wonderful owners, gorgeous room and tasty breakfast! Nice bar just down the road. Enjoyed exploring St. Louis and lots of helpful tips from owners. Had a really nice stay and sure we will be back one day!

Napoleon Retreat was awesome!! So personable and cozy, location was great, the breakfast was to die for as well. We will definately return when in St Louis. Our room had a great bed and a beautiful balcony with a view of the courtyard and all of the great old buildings, you could even see the arch! We highly recommend staying... More

This is our second stay at Napoleons and it is always great. The food is amazing and the rooms are super nice with a comfortable bed, the Burgundy Room has an awesome new jetted tub. I look forward to our next stay there.

this was a nice place with clean rooms and a comfortable location close to the city. Only issue for me was the on street parking - not a problem per se, but our cars are in the +$100K zone and really need to be in an off street parking location. Other than that it was a fine stop for a... More

Jim, thank you for your kind words about Napoleon's Retreat Bed & Breakfast. We're very glad to hear that you enjoyed your stay. As mentioned on our web site, parking is in a separate, designated lane with about 15 feet of clearance from on-street traffic. Many of the 130-year-old homes in our neighborhood don't have garages. We park our cars... More

Just wanted to share that our stay at Napoleon's Retreat was top notch. Our room was comfortable, clean, and classy, great sheets and whirlpool tub. Stacy was a superb host, taking into account my wife's food allergies. We loved the area, amazing architecture and nice park close by, how you can easily walk to good restaurants/bars/even a desert bar that... More

This bed and breakfast is more like boutique hotel. The rooms are beautifully decorated and a lovely size. Personal touches are the difference here. Stacey is a wonderful host and picks up on details of your visit, provides lots of information and the prettiest breakfast table every morning. The breakfasts are delicious as are the homemade cookies left everyday in... More

Excellent B&B with great hosts. Stacy is exuberant, helpful and rightfully proud of what she and her husband have created. We were upgraded to the Charles DeGaulle room because the room we had chosen was having some repair work done. Our room was in the back and could be entered separately through the courtyard. The room was spacious, comfortable and... More

It was our first time visiting St. Louis. We came for the NCAA Wrestling Championship and wanted to find some place that was within walking distance of the Scottrade Center and other attractions. This was the perfect place, we stayed in the Josephine Suite that is like a mini apartment and it was perfect for my husband and myself and... More

Naolean's Retreat is a beautiful B&B in a charming neighborhood. We found it a peaceful oasis with easy access to great restaurants and downtown sights. The innkeeper did not overlook the details--our well-appointed room had everything from bath salts to a dish of candies to fresh-baked cookies awaiting each afternoon. Breakfasts had something to suit every taste: fresh fruit, baked... More
