We went to New Orleans during the big orthopaedic surgeon convention so hotels were very hard to find. And when you did find a basic hotel it was several hundred dollars a night. So we did some research and found the Balcony Guest House. We hadn't stayed on this side of New Orleans before. The price was perfect! I was... More

I had such a lovely stay here for my spring break. The house itself was beautiful, eclectic, and very clean (with much appreciated complimentary coffee). It's central location made walking to different parts of the city very easy, and the part of the Marigny it's in is incredibly charming and alive. I would recommend staying here to anyone over and...

The Balcony guesthouse is not for those who want a cookie-cutter hotel room. The basic rooms are tiny, but well furnished with a modern, well-lit bath. The sitting room was great as we befriended another couple staying there and we had a nice , quiet space to chat and have a bottle of wine we bought downstairs. Breakfast was good,... More

This was my second stay at the Balcony Guesthouse in New Orleans. As far as I'm concerned it will always be my first choice. The owner and his family go out of their way to make you feel like it's your home. The rooms are lovely and comfortable, the onsite restaurant and bar are extremely convenient and the food is...

I stayed here with friends for a weekend, and the Balcony Guest House was a great homebase for our activities. They were incredibly nice and amenable (even when we weren't the quietest group that could've existed), had included breakfast that was cooked for us, and were conveniently located within walking distance to the French Quarter. Thanks for a great time!

Zak was a fantastic host -- in touch with us all along, answered all our questions, went out of his way to make sure we had a great time. His B&B is beautiful, extremely clean, a block from a few great bars/restaurants, a short walk from Frenchman Street, and a longish (but safe and pleasant) walk from the French Quarter.... More

My husband and I could not have been happier to stay at The Balcony Guest House for our honeymoon last week!! The incredible hospitality we received from the entire staff at The Balcony/Schiro's made us feel immediately embraced by the city from the moment we arrived. The cafe attached to the B&B, Schiro's was our favorite first stop of each... More

I stayed here for a week when I was performing at Marigny Opera House. Staying at this B&B made my New Orleans experience even more special. I loved the neighborhood; it's walking distance to the French Quarter, and all the popular local spots. The host Zak was wonderful, and he made me feel at home at his B&B. The room... More

We stayed a week here around Halloween and never had a dull moment. Check in time is 3 pm and Donald may not have your room ready, so be prepared to entertain yourself until then. That's not hard to do in the Marigny. The restaurant here is outstanding and worth a visit in and of itself. Zak and Naz were... More
