My husband and I decided to stay out at this guest house for the second time since we loved the experience so much the first time. We decided to bring two of our friends along this time! It had that familiar feel to it which made us instantly feel right at home (for the second time) and our friends also... More

We had a great time at Lafitte's and the staff was warm and friendly. It's one of the nicest B&B/ Guest Houses in the area within that price range. Parking off the street was a big plus and it was walking distance but nicely far enough away from the usual Bourbon street madness. The room was huge and nicely appointed.... More

Wow... we were so impressed with Lafitte. It reminded us of being in in a European family owned hotels. The art and the hospitality was superb! Lafitte is in just the right place for us to be in the thick of things while being in quiet portion of the quarter. Walking around the French Quarter was easy and convenient -... More

We stayed in one of the parlor rooms and absolutely loved it! The bed was super comfy and the decor was beautiful. The location was perfect for us, close to everything, but far enough away from Bourbon to escape that craziness! We were first time New Orleans visitors, so we appreciated being in the French Quarter. We would definitely stay... More

LaFitte Guest House is a perfect "home base" when visiting New Orleans. The Rooms are unique and charming, yet have every convenience. We greeted each morning on the balcony overlooking Bourbon Street with coffee and biscuits, plus many more goodies. The location is amazingly quiet, yet just a pleasant stroll to all that is wonderful in the French Quarter. The... More

What a pleasant place to stay in New Orleans! A friendly and helpful staff with the most comfortable beds we ever slept on. Situated in the middle of the French Quarter on Bourbon Street within walking distance to some of the best and most famous restaurants in the world.. A great visit and we will come again.

My husband and I stayed at the Lafitte Guest House with our 2 and 4 year old daughters. The location is perfect, right in the French Quarter but in a relatively quiet area away from the craziness of other parts of Bourbon Street. The house is lovely and the rooms are beautifully appointed. The kitchen is well stocked for a... More

We stayed at the Lafitte Guest House for our honey moon and 1st trip to New Orleans last September/October. I couldn't have asked for a better experience. The rooms were gorgeous and the staff was phenomenal! I have never meet a nicer group of people; at the guest house and in New Orleans itself. The guest house is located in... More

LaFitte Guest House is a 25 bed hostel with beautifully appointed rooms, great customer service and excellent location! We highly recommend it out. We will be staying there again. Ask for Room 21! It is on the second floor on the front and opens onto a balcony overlooking Bourbon St.

I've stayed at a few guest houses and hotels around the French quarter but this is the best one by far. I loves the location and I adored our quirky little room. Tje staff was super helpful. I'm planning to come back next summer with my friends and family.
