The stay at Auld Sweet was nothing but amazing. Nancy was extremely accommodating. The homemade breakfast was delicious and she took the time each day to make sure we had everything to make our stay prefect. She gave us many great ideas and activities to do each morning. We can't wait to go back and visit again.

We loved to stay in the Sweet Olive, a beautiful house and stylish furnished. The neighborhood is quiet and seemed safe. Very close to Frenchman St. and its fabulous music, along with many great restaurants. We walked to the French Quarter very easily, about 15 to 20 minutes. The house and the grounds are beautiful and charming, with great indoor... More

I'm a writer and i chose this B & B because one of the listing photos shows a bedroom with a lovely little desk looking out to a window, and it turned out to be a perfect place to spend the morning 'at the desk' before going out into the city. The owner, Nancy, is a delightful host, and it... More

Staying at Auld Sweet Olive far exceeded my expectations of a bed & breakfast experience. I felt like Nancy warmly welcomed me into her home. Every detail from the delicious food to the sweet smell of rosemary in the organic shampoo made my stay memorable. I loved its proximity to restaurants, live music, art galleries, shops and the French Quarter.... More

I'm working in NOLA for a few weeks, and my husband came down for a romantic weekend together. I read the reviews of Auld Sweet Olive, and was lucky enough to get a room on short notice. WOW. It did not disappoint. The place is CHARMING. Room was comfortable and immaculate. Nancy is a warm and welcoming host who will... More

My Girlfriend and I stayed here for a long weekend. Great area within walking distance to Frechman St., the French Quarter and other New Orleans highlights. Nancy is an absolutely wonderful hostess. Highly recommended if you like a low key place with a great breakfast, and want to stay just out of purview of the craziness of Bourbon St.

LOCATION: - In the Marigny, a residential neighborhood just 15 min walk east of Frenchmen St & the French Quarter. This means you don't HAVE to rely on taxi or car to walk into the touristy areas to explore, but it's recommended to take a cab at night. (We never did and we felt fine.) - The neighborhood is undergoing... More

My husband and I stayed at the Auld Sweet Olive in early January 2015. The rooms are comfy and cozy. The sheets are super soft. Nancy is a wonderful hostess and cook. The breakfasts were delicious. We loved the location - quiet, neighborhood within walking distance of all the action. Highly recommend. We will definitely stay again when we visit... More

Me and my son stayed in his beautiful house, I say house because that is what it feels like. Nancy is a great cook and she was very hospitable to us. We drove from Houston to NOLA and my concern was a place to park my car. I just parked the front of the garden with a kumquat tree which... More

We stayed at the B&B during a long weekend and received great advice for places to see and where to eat. Nancy was great host, very friendly and easy going. We stayed in the Courtyard Suite and the neighborhood is quiet and seemed safe. We walked to the French Quarter very easily. The room was clean and met our needs.... More
