Quiet, comfortable hotel at the edge of the French Quarter. Staff is attentive, rooms are clean ,onsite parking, continental breakfast that can be enjoyed in the lushly landscaped courtyard, surrounding the pool. Short stroll to French Market , and Café DuMonde among others. I highly recommend Bienville Hotel for an authentic stay in the Quarter.

We stayed this summer at the Bienville Hotel and had a wonderful time. The hotel room was clean and nicely laid out. The breakfast was great; you could sit and eat your breakfast in the garden early in the morning and feel a sense of the quiet beauty of New Orleans. I recommend this hotel as a convenient and delightful... More

Close to shopping with onsite parking. You're right at the beginning of the FQ on St Peter/Decatur. Small quaint rooms that seem recently updated. Lobby is rather small but has a few seats we used for waiting on family members to meet up for our adventures. They have a bar and small pool. Make sure you check the times of... More

We absolutely loved it! The hotel was recommended to us by friends to host our wedding and we were NOT disappointed. From the time we walked in & Miss Cynthia smiled big and welcomed us then proceeded to show us the various suites available personally it was the start of a great weekend.

This hotel is very convenient to the French Quarter. It's easier to get to than most hotels that are located within the quarter since it is on the edge of the quarter. The hotel staff is excellent. The courtyard is charming. We did hear a train in the middle of the night since the tracks are very near. I would... More

Very quaint Boutique Hotel. Nicely done rooms and extremely helpful staff. Beverly at the front desk was most helpful and friendly. Very quiet and clean. Would highly recommend this hotel experience for those that are tired of the chains!

There are definitely specific reasons you'd want to stay at this hotel. Boutique feel, great distance from well known restaurants and popular streets in the French Quarter, and even downtown, and super friendly service especially for the price. Everything was easily walkable from this location. It's just far enough from Bourbon street to not be bothered by festivities and revelers... More

Bienville House Hotel is a wonderful place to stay. It is convenient, an easy walk, to everything in the French Quarter, the streetcar lines, and the business district. It is far enough away from the crowds to be very quiet too. All the staff are exceptional. I ride a mobility scooter and the staff, from the ladies at the reception... More

We like this hotel; stayed there several times over the years and will continue to do so. However, this hotel will not be perfect for everyone. We like price, value, location and the service. The rooms are small, bathrooms are small with limited counter space, and the shower is very small. No room service, valet parking is very expensive (use... More
