My family and I made a point of reserving two rooms three weeks in advance of our trip to New Orleans. We had read wonderful things online about this place, and were looking forward to its touted charm and atmosphere. First, I had to make a minor change to the reservation. It took three unanswered emails, an unacknowledged phone call,... More

We booked the entire house for a group of people over a long weekend in NOLA - entirely based on previous reviews. Our experience was AWFUL - and we couldn't relate to any of the previous reviews after our stay. It was absolutely filthy. Would NEVER stay here again. PRE-STAY: A friend who was in town called to see if... More

I wouldn't call Elysian Guesthouse a B&B, since there is no breakfast. What you get for your money, is a lovely room with plenty of space in an authentic NOLA house. The room was lovely with a small walkway, containing a fridge, leading to the separate bathroom and a lovely room with a beautiful antique bed, a couch, TV and... More

We had an amazing stay here. David, the owner, is an amazing person to work with. He was more than accommodating. We never had a lack of communication and he was always quick to respond. As far as the house, it was amazing. We rented the whole house. All the rooms were great in size. It is not a B&B!!!... More

We rented the River Suite, Porch Suite and Avenue Studio for a party of 10 people. First off, they were very accomodating with respect to adjusting the schedule of renting the units (several of my guests were coming in at different days). David, one of the property managers, was very prompt with his emails and always was very receptive to... More

We had a pleasant stay at the Elysian Guest House. The hot tub is large and nice. We rented the Porch Suite and found the room to be quite spacious, clean, and had all of the basics well covered -- it was nice to have a separate living room and small fridge. The location is a 10-15 minute walk from... More

We stayed at the Elysian Guest House in April of 2007 and it was very cute and charming. The owner Ted is soooo nice but be aware: THIS IS NOT A BED AND BREAKFAST. Poor Ted seemed quite shocked that it is advertised as such on Expedia and this website. He was very accommodating though, and I thank him for... More

The Elysian Guest House has a beautiful website. Though its photos are accurate, they also do not show how very small the courtyard is or how many locks (on doors and gates) one must continually lock and unlock to get in and out. However, once I got accustomed to these two rather unexpected things, the Guest House was what I... More

My wife and I stayed for three after the Hurricane and found this place to be very quite and comfortable. Nice garden and the Hot Tub was great (after cleanning the city during the day)

We stayed here for 5 nights in July. Elysian Guesthouse was quite charming. The location seemed a little out of the way, but in reality was quite convenient. The guesthouse is at the far corner of the Marigny triangle, right across the street from the Phoenix(for all you gay travellers!) and at the edge of all the Frenchman St. action.... More
