We stayed 2 nights - New Orleans' best kept secret! What you get for the price is unbeatable. We stayed in the Memphis Minnie room, and it was beautiful. The bathroom was convenient and private. We were an easy walk from the ferry, which cost $2 for a one-way trip (only takes exact change) and drops you off right in... More

We stayed 2 nights here. Kevin (the proprietor) was very accommodating. The "red" room was as advertised, and did not disappoint. Daily breakfast of fresh fruit, yogurt, tea or coffee. Fresh croissants from a local bakery Sunday morning of our stay. The location is a short walk from the ferry to Canal Street. Although the ferry crossings are limited the... More

My husband and I stayed here two nights for our honeymoon last year and loved it so much, we came back to stay five nights for our one-year anniversary. The house is in the beautiful historic neighborhood of Algiers Point, just a ferry ride from the French Quarter, and is cozy and welcoming inside and out. Our bedroom and bathroom... More

Kevin and Wendy have truly created the most home-like environment away from home I could have imagined for a vacation. I am not normally someone who likes to travel, but having the ability to come back to their cozy house in Algiers after a day of exploring New Orleans truly feels like coming home after being out for the day....

Last came to New Orleans 15 years ago, came this time to celebrate our 60th birthdays and 40th wedding anniversary! Had the most wonderful time, stayed with cockney Kevin and Cajun Wendy at the House of the Rising Sun B&B! Their house was a delight, everything you could possibly want, so comfortable. Their company, amazing, pointed us in the right... More

This is a lovely B&B. All other reviews are accurate with regard to hospitality, food, room comfort, etc. This is a fun and funky place, which was just what we were looking for after a few days in a stuffy downtown hotel. Kevin does a nice, healthy breakfast. The neighborhood is quiet and safe. The room and bathroom was very... More

Many thanks for the wonderful review!! As the RTA are still new owners of the ferry, they are still trying to getting the best service possible for us. With two new boats on the horizon (no pun intended) we hope for an extended service some time soon. There is always a bus, cab or guests' cars to get to the... More

Our first visit was 10 years ago; and like a good wine, House of the Rising Sun Bed and Breakfast has improved with age. Its unique neighborhood, Algiers Point has also improved over time. We took a cab from Louis Armstrong International Airport to the foot of Canal St. in the French Quarter, caught the ferry to Algiers Point, and... More

A friend and I were in town for a concert. Everything in the city was booked. I was a little nervous about staying in an unknown place across the river, but it was a WONDERFUL experience! I will definitely stay there again! A few highlights: 1. Traffic was a breeze! It was super easy to find, and there is a... More

The best location possible. One of the best times was sitting on the back porch with Kevin and talking about New Orleans and the locals in Algiers. The rooms were very spacious, clean, and quiet. Our stay included celebrating my husbands 65th birthday at the Old Point Bar...which is in one of the greatest locations on the point near the... More

Wendy and Kevin are the perfect hosts.They have the ability to make you feel at home the minute you walk through the door. Their local knowledge was invaluable in making our stay and experience of the magic that is New Orleans, quite unforgettable. I can't rate them highly enough. You will not be disappointed.
