This bed & breakfast was amazing! We stayed in the Azaela Riom which was clean, beautiful and cozy! Russell was very friendly and helpful and made a delicious breakfast every morning! It's located in a beautiful area with things to do locally and the streetcars arrived close by. Thank you for your Nola hospitality we will come back!

My boyfriend and I stayed from 3/5-3/12, we got there a little early and left late, so Russell let us keep our luggage in the hall while they cleaned the rooms. The "streetcar" is right there so going to the French Quarter is a breeze. Not only that but there are so many places to get food that are close... More

If you're looking for a reasonable, historic B&B in New Orleans across the street from City Park, on the trolley line to the French Quarter, with an extraordinary range of amenities (full breakfast, open bar, free wifi, whirlpool tubs), with a gracious and genial host, look no further.

Not sure the owner has the right patron on mind. We have been to New Orleans many times, plan to be back, to attend my daughters wedding, if nothing else. If the owner told us the room was being renovated, I don't recall the conversation. If that's the case, the room charge should have reflected that fact. And since we... More

Stayed many times in NOLA mainly in the French Quarter. This time we chose to stay in a more quiet neighborhood. Oakview Bed and Breakfast is across from City Park and the most noise we heard were the sounds of the animals. Sitting on the front porch was so peaceful. Russell the owner greeted us with true Southern hospitality. We... More

Stayed here for son's recent wedding at city park. Great rooms, wonderful host, good breakfast. Host is a wonderful fellow, great to talk to. Only B & B I have ever been that had a supplied open bar which encouraged conversation with other visitors.

Host Russell is an attentive concierge to laid back New Orleans accessible from comfortable, clean, Oakview B&B. NOMA is literally across the street in City Park. The streetcar to downtown is on the corner.

We stayed 2 nights in the Asian room. Our room was large but not well appointed. No towel racks in the bathroom, no place to conveniently put your luggage and clothes . Curtains covered unattractive windows and woodwork. The furniture was of the period and was showing some wear. The proprietor explained the inn was undergoing renovation. We agree there's... More

oakview1, Owner at Oakview Bed and Breakfast, responded to this review

I think that the response had some substance but was very unfair. The guest called with an emergency situation in that no rooms were available anywhere else. The Asian was closed and being renovated and the guest were well aware of this fact as they were instructed to view the room in advance with my help and not only did... More

Oakview Bed and Breakfast is a wonderful place to stay in New Orleans. Aptly named, it's located just across from a park and provides a view of the huge, intricately shaped oak trees there. Just minutes away from the city center by streetcar and bus (both stop right around the corner) or rental (plenty of room for your car here),... More

From the moment I stepped through the doors of this beautiful house, I felt right at home. Russell is the most gracious and generous host, bending over backwards to make you feel comfortable. I stayed in the Azalea room, which was huge and has a separate entrance up the side of the house. The included breakfast is great and as... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
Oakview is a lovely 100 year old historic Victorian. It is ideally located across the street from the famous City Park and the New Orleans Museum. THat means we are walking distance to Jazz Fest, across the street from Voodoo Fest, two blocks from the start of the Endymion Parade, two blocks from the historic Cemetery, around the corner from Bayou Bugaloo festival, and a very short distance from the French Quarter, downtown and the convention center. The trolly stops in front of the door.Further the crescent city classic race and most other races and marathons ends here at the park across from the bed and breakfast. Unbelievable but true.We also feel that we are at least in the TOP 10 for the best Bed and Breakfast not number 75. WE are totally new, totally renovated and modernly upgraded with whirlpools in every room. ... more   less
