My wife and I decided to head down to NOLA for a long weekend over the 4th of July. A friend had recommended the guest house so we decided to make it our home away from home for a few days. The location was fantastic. We ended up spending the bulk of our trip on Magazine street, away from the... More

Upon traveling to NOLA from TX my husband and I were looking for a safe inexpensive place to stay within walking distance to the French Quarters. This was the most wonderful place located in the Garden district. Didn't have to pay to park, safe streets, easy parking, and there is a tram just off of the main street that takes... More

We traveled to New Orleans for Wrestlemania XXX. We wanted to find a hotel with some character and to find a "slice of life" in New Orleans, a glimpse of what life is really like in New Orleans. St. Charles Guesthouse was the perfect place to stay! We were within walking distance to all the major tourist attractions as well... More

Stayed a week and found it very comfortable, clean and friendly. I felt like it was my home right away. The staff is great and very helpful. The breakfast room was like a cheerful enclosed sun porch and decorated appropriately. Coffee was very good, and lingering every morning with coffee and very interesting guests was a great way to start... More

We stated three nights and were totally satisfied. The location is right near the trolley car. The price was very reasonable. It was a little chilly and there were two extra blankets in the closet. There was good coffee and lots of fresh fruit, toast, bagels, good orange juice, etc. we would definitely stay here again.

We have been there 2 times last year, the second time never even thought about looking up another place, nor will we ever. St Charles Guest House, would be my choice if i go alone, in couple, with friends or with kids. The pool is incredible, the rooms are clean, the kitchen open all day is something you never find...

Those that work in the Hospitality industry try very hard to assist and be of service to those who come to our city and bless us by staying at our establishments. When we get compliments it really makes us feel like we are doing not only a good job but are connecting on a personal level to those who visit... More

We stayed for a convention in New Orleans at st.Charles. Staff is very helpful and friendly. Rooms are OK : clean, well equipped and have really good beds. We have slept our jet lag out and felt very good. Breakfast is little bit of a disappointment : in an small space, with half bench furniture, scarce on choices of cereals... More

This was the worst place we ever stayed at. Cons: 1. Dirty - floors not vacuumed, found other people's shoes and socks under the furniture, found pubic hair in the bathroom 2. Dilapidated - the window couldn't close properly and we had to fill the opening with toilet paper, wall paper stained and tearing off the walls, ceilings stained and... More

We certainly try to do the best we can with what we have. When one charges from $35 to $45 per night per person' we cannot provide microwaves, refrigerators, tvs and such in a room. We do however have a very nice breakfast room (overlooking a pool) that has a microwave, small refrigerator for juice and such, water, in a... More

This was my first trip to New Orleans to attend a conference at Tulane University and I couldn't have made a better choice of hotel. From pre-booking through check-out, the staff (specially the owner) was exceptionally helpful in answering questions and providing helpful information such as touristic options, lifestyle, restaurants, etc. From its fantastic location to the overall ambience, this...

We are especially pleased when someone from another country enjoys our place. We call ourselves a European style Bed and Breakfast Guest Houise. We are a simple place that provides a lot of service to those visiting. We are especially sensitive to those from France as it is our sister European city. We also enjoy telling those from other countries... More

This place has been here for a while now, and you might really like its character, and dig how staying here is really is like living in an old-style hotel you'd find in a big city back in the 30s and 40s. And it won't break the bank if you stay here for seven days. That is a plus for... More
