The moment we walked in, we knew we had hit gold. As three women traveling for a birthday (during Mardi Gras), safety and comfort were very important. The location is perfection; between Bourbon and Royal, almost into Marigny but still in the Quarter. The area is residential but only a 5 minute walk to the French Market, the bars on... More

The location of this guest house is great! If you're expecting a big hotel or B&B experience this probably isn't the place for you. If you want a quiet, easy and convenient place to sleep in the French Quarter this is the spot. The rooms all have their own exterior doors that open with a keypad so there are no... More

My now husband and I stayed in several B&Bs in New Orleans as part of our honeymoon, and were disappointed with RBGH. The room itself was not very clean (hairs in the shower), and we had to keep the bathroom window open as there was no fan. We were bitten by mosquitos. Don't expect the room to be cleaned between...

My husband and I just recently visited for our honeymoon, and we really enjoyed our stay at the RBGH. We stayed in the suite, and it was a gorgeous room. I loved how it was decorated, and I thought having the extra little sitting area/living room really made a big difference. It didn't feel cramped at all. I think the... More

LOVE THIS PLACE! Me and my now husband came to New Orleans to get married and we stayed at several different hotels to get a taste of all different areas of New Orleans and out of the 4 we stayed this is definitely one of my favorite. Sugar B was our doggie guide to our room which was adorable! We... More

I can't say enough wonderful things about our stay at Royal Barracks Guest House. Kelly and Sugar made our experience feel like home with a little devious sparkle to the eye. We were running low on time to find a place and the rooms all around the French Quarter were booking up. I stumbled across Royal Barracks and I'm so... More

My friend and I stayed here for two nights during the Halloween season. The rooms are clean and comfortable with tons of character. We immediately felt at home. The location is just steps away from everything and for two women traveling alone we felt very safe and secure. Kelly (the Manager) was one of the friendliest people we have ever... More

My boyfriend was a bit skeptical when I said that I wanted to book a room with bunk beds. He was won over when he saw the place and its location. It's near the French Market and the great places on Frenchman Street. They make use of the tight space in the room. There was plenty of lighting plus a... More

Me and my wife stayed here this past weekend for our 1 year anniversary and we loved it! The location is perfect because your close enough to walk to everything and far enough from the loud hustle and bustle of the night life. We got great hospitality from the manager Kelly, she was very sweet and so knowledgable on the... More

This was our 3rd time to NOLA in 6 years. Love this city and found this place to be a different vibe than a hotel. You certainly get more of a local feel here than at a hotel or B&B. If you are picky about accommodations, then you won't like this place - it is not for everyone. If you... More
