I just got back from Jazz Fest weekend and absolutely LOVED this hotel!! The staff are the friendliest people ever. Love the family feel. The exposed brick walls in the rooms gives you that old charming feel. It is the only place I will stay in the Quarter.

Stayed here with a friend of mine. We tried to book online, but it showed they were fully booked. When we called, they were able to find us a budget room. Upon arrival, because there were two of us, we were upgraded to a multi-bed room! Parking is included, which is a DEAL in itself, but you will have to... More

Can't express enough how generous, friendly & welcoming the staff of the Villa Convento are. The house is quaint, homey and a perfect example of old world New Orleans. I see some reviews mentioning that the bathrooms were unacceptable-if you're like me and won't be spending the majority of your vacation inside the bathroom, they are just fine. Beautiful little...

We stayed during Spring Break in late March in room 401. Yes, I had read the reviews prior to staying there. Yes, I realized that it would not be the Ritz, but we were surprised at the condition of some things. We were pleased with a few things: location was great, room was very spacious, balcony views were good, bed... More

My wife and I stayed at the Hotel Villa Convento for 3 days and nights and it was wonderful! The hotel is old, as the city, and feels like it could be your grandmothers home, as in homey, warm and comfortable. The staff was great and Warren and Triskell both took good care of us! On the first day Warren... More

Everything was wonderful! The view was beautiful. The staff was more than helpful, very knowlagable, and took the time to answer all of our questions. I would recommend this hotel to everyone, and will stay there again on my next trip.

Interesting place, and a good deal in the French Quarter for $135 with free parking. It was a little difficult to get to as all the streets in the area are one way. Best thing about this hotel was the location - close to Jackson Square, Bourbon Street and Riverfront areas. We could walk to lots of restaurants (I'd recommend... More

Located in the French Quarter two blocks from French Market, and two blocks from Bourbon a Street, this hotel is a great value. They have a complementary parking lot a few blocks away, but if you are patient you might find a space on the street in front of the hotel. Rooms are small and bathrooms are tiny. Ours had... More

Found this place on the internet looking for a bit cheaper in the French Quarter. They have average rooms with few amenities but the building itself and its history are well worth it. Close to both Bourbon Street and Decatur Street it's the perfect location to adventure from. Staff is helpful and friendly, like everyone in NOLA, and the rooms... More

We had out of town guests and decided on an impromptu trip to the French Quarter. I came across this hotel on this site and after reading the many favorable reviews we decided to give it a try for one night. It did not disappoint! The place is full of charm and character, was very clean and comfortable and the... More
