Our stay was nothing short of AMAZING! Kelly and Sugah B were excellent hosts and the BLU room felt like HOME! Cozy and intimate and exactly what we needed. And the location was perfectly tucked away in the back corner of the French Quarter - just a stone's throw from Frenchman St. Loved the onsite laundry and magical backyard gazebo.... More

RBGH is our home away from home!! My husband and I visit at least once a year if not more and have even taken our kids by to see it on trips passing through NOLA. You will not find more hospitable hostesses than Kelly and Sugah'B - they'll greet you on 'da stoop and offer you a beverage and a... More

It was my first time to New Orleans and went down with some friends. Miss Kelly (The Owner) and of course Suga B couldn't have been more pleasant to meet for the first time! We were greeted with a glass of champagne out back and escorted to our room my none other than Miss Suga B herself! It was so... More

Went to RBGH in 2012 for the first time & we've been going back every year since . The location is absolutely perfect , a somehow quiet street between Royal and Bourbon only a few blocks from Frenchmen .. Beautifully decorated rooms and the absolute best hostess in the city . Going back in a few weeks and I cant... More

Myself and a friend visited New Orleans in April from Ireland and we had another friend joining us from new York. Before we booked the Guest House we made an enquiry explaining that there would be 3 of us and if it would be possible to share 1 room. We were told that this would not be a problem and... More

We stayed in New Orleans for a number of days, and booked the Royal Barracks Guest House based on the Tripadvisor reviews. This type of accomodation does not fit into the regular categories. If you are looking for a hotel experience, you are likely to be disappointed. It also does not fit the typical B&B description. This accomodation fits somewhere... More

Well, Kelly did it again!!!!!! She made us feel so at home. I wished we lived closer, driving distance instead of flying distance. Maybe in the same country would also help. This time we stayed in the Peacock Room, it is lovely. Much bigger compared to the Garden Room we staying in last time. The rooms are not the reason... More

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
