What a wonderful experience!! I have stayed at the Balcony several times now over the past eight years. I love being able to walk to Frenchman St. and Bourbon St. to hear music and not have to worry about driving or getting a cab back. Zak and his crew always make me feel like family. But this time was the... More

My wife and I chose this location for our romantic honeymoon getaway. We didn't want to stay in a typical hotel as the culture of a town is often lost in such establishments. If you're looking for a cultural experience, this is the place for you. With the excellent gourmet breakfast in our stomachs, we started our days walking a... More

After a phenomenal experience in 2011, it was a no-brainer to go back on a subsequent vacation. We wever pretty excited to come back as well! In fact, we suggested to family to stay there as well. However.... Well, however. We rented the Honeymoon Suite; we had 4 people. The Suite is up a second flight of narrow stairs. There... More

Zackary R, Owner at Balcony Guest House, responded to this review

We are very sorry that our guest was disappointed in our service. Due to a maid error, an extra set of linen, etc. was not left in the suite. After several attempts, when I finally reached her, I offered to come back to the B&B, at a late hour of the night, and provide her with the linens. She informed... More

We rented the owner's suite and an addtional room in the B & B along with both adjoining duplexes with 3 bedrooms, 3 baths each for a family trip to New Orleans for the Saints/Packers game. The owners, Zak and Naz, are almost finished with their renovation of all the rooms and the restaurant and they couldn't have been more... More

I wanted to like this place. I really did. But I just can't recommend it. This B&B is in a nice location: residential neighborhood close to Frenchman Street and walking distance to the Quarter. However we were "serenaded" by the drunken neighbors until about 5:30 am one night, and we were very aware of the horns from nearby trains all... More

My boyfriend and I stayed here for our first trip to New Orleans. Just a short stay, but we took the suite. The staff was very friendly and we had lunch in the restaurant which was delicious. Everything was very clean and comfortable. They were in the process of renovating the downstairs area so I am eager to see the... More

My friends and I stayed here for 6 days for a bachelor party and it was a terrific experience. We had twelve guys sleeping comfortably, with a lot of space, and enough privacy for everyone. What really stood out was Zak (the proprietor)and his staff's hospitality. Everyone there is like a family, and when you stay there, you're treated equally.... More

Owner and staff were all great insuring the time spent there was enjoyable and all needs met. And the food is outstanding a must try. Even if you are staying elsewhere. Great wine list and the locals are starting to frequent the restaurant.
