Very nice b&b. Well situated. Ed, the owner is very nice and helpful. The climatisation was a little bit too noisy on the room but we were tired so we slept very well. I recommand. Swimming pool and tub available. Terrace to eat your breakfast (be careful with the mosquitos if you don't want to be eaten at your turn).... More

Ed was so helpful when booking, I had some questions about transportation shuttle vs. cab, advised we use United Cabs and we did for the whole trip, they were great! Arriving at the property we were greeted at the door by Ed who provided a rundown of the property/amenities provided and then a map of the area (came in extremely... More

I stayed at the Lions Inn 5-5- to 5-8-2015. The location was an easy ten minute walk to the French Quarter. I felt safe walking to and from theFrench Quarter. I would probably take a taxi after dark so has not to get lost walking back. I also felt the neighborhood was safe. The Lions Inn was a great place... More

Neat and quiet-appearing from the street, a side door opens the way to a brick pathway leading to a lovely pool and natural pond environment that is meticulously landscaped. The rear of this B&B feels like a tropical island to this New Englander in mid-April. Breakfast offers a variety of choices, so my 8-night stay started each morning with a... More

Warm welcome, good documentation available, nice pool/garden area, and there are free bikes available and they are great bikes! The inn is very well kept and clean. Breakfast is abundant, however the coffee is not good. Should be using local beans like Coffee du Monde or at least a better than average brand. This simple detail makes a difference for... More

Its a nice place, with a beauty energy. Just the place that somebody need in a trip to rest in peace. The bed and breakfast is located in a good zone too. The service is so gentile. You must enjoy it.

My husband and I found the Lions Inn on line and booked it for a week, based on some good old honest reviews. We had a bedroom with a queen bed, small kitchenette and bath at a very affordable price. Originally, we booked a hotel near Bourbon Street, but we've always liked quaint out of the way places that don't... More

I stayed at this B&B 02/18/15 - 02/21/15. It's Chartes, the locals pronounce it "charters". The main reason I chose this inn was approx. close proximity to the French Quarter and the price. My room was number 5. It shared a bath, commode, pedestal sink and corner shower. It was in the house adjacent to first of two houses operated... More

Our party of 4 arrived travel weary after flying in from the UK for Mardi Gras. We stayed at the Lions Inn for 6 nights and the hosts could not have been more accommodating. Fresh towels/housekeeping every day, the room was lovely + spacious (we were in the attic), the shower was fab (although if you are taller than 5ft6... More

My wife and I were on a road trip (Nashville, Memphis and New Orleans) prior to a cruise. The Lions was just perfect for us, the area is very quiet and maybe 5 minutes walk to Frenchmen Street and a further 5 minutes or so to the French Market. We parked the car on the street outside and did not... More
