Amazing place to stay. This is an historical hotel , so , that being said if you expect " The Hilton" ...dont even bother going to the French Quarter. This is the place to stay if you would like southern hospitality , a room with some charm, cleanliness and amazing front desk accommodations...this place is well loved by those "who... More

If you are looking for a high end hotel, this is not it. This hotel is very old and simply has the best character. The elevator says it all. It is padded and only 2 people at a time. Now talk about character, old grandma the elevator has it.. Haha.if you get a room, I strongly suggest to get one... More

We recently stayed @ VILLA CONVENTO. It is in a good location and has VERY FRIENDLY staff, BUT is "rough around the edges!!" We were on 3rd floor with small balconey. The entire hotel, or what we saw, needs lots of work. I hesitate to "nit pick' so won't. Bed was comfortable, bathrm. clean, except mat in tub, looked a... More

I have stayed at many amazing hotels & also horrible ones, this one is super cute and has the authentic NOLA feeling to it. Was it best? no, but it was far from the worst. Super nice staff. It kinda smelled like the Pirates of the Caribbean, but when you are just staying a night as you pass thru it's... More

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.
