This place was in a great location. It was a block from the parades so could walk back and forth w/o issues. It's a block away from a park, though not an actual playground but my son liked throwing the football around. The guest house was decent, my hubs wanted something more fancier but for the price during Mardi Gras,... More

I stayed in a six beds bedroom. Old house, but clean. If you can, bring your own pillow, towel and blanket. They give them, but not good ones. Friendly and helpful staff. Wirelles doesn't work in the most of the bedrooms, just in the aisles. About 1,5mi from Bourbon Street.

Loved our 3 nights there! We had read several of the reviews and were a bit concerned....but it was a great experience! Clean rooms, great location, for... More

We stayed here 3 night, dennis the chap that owns it is awesome really helpful and interesting. The place is in its original condition, its very old, so dont expect 5 star renovations, however we found it fascinating and added to the character of new orleans. The outdoor areas are lovely, I happened to sit on the patio out the... More

Very nicely located in a quiet room where you can park easily but close to a stop of the green street car. The owner will welcome you and will provide you information about the city and the house. very nice owner . But the pictures of the house should have been taken 20 years ago and then nothing has been... More

Good: reasonably priced ($75), one block from the streetcar line, quiet, pool, comfy bed, good shower, baked goods and coffee available all day. Not so good: stayed 4 nights, no housekeeping whatsoever, not even a garbage can emptied. Kinda skeevy outdated room with bad carpet, horrible ceiling tiles, a bathroom door that didn't close, no tv (but we knew that... More

The Guest House is the type of place where interesting characters stay and visit. We encourage those visitors who are on a budget and want to experience older authentic New Orleans Houses to consider the St Charles Guest House. We tell everyone that we are a simple older kind of place that is economical, in a great location on the... More

Had good memories of this place from college (1991), and took the family back this summer. Yes, it's not new or fancy at all. And there is a not-miniscule element of "roughing it" mentality you need. Think European hostel-plus. But it's got fantastic NOLA atmosphere, complete with creepy portraits, lending bookshelves, winding passageways. The price can't be beat. Neighborhood is... More

The St Charles Guest House is an economical place for bargain hunters. It is an older facility built in the late 1800's and the prices are the most economical in the area. A double with bath is $75 most of the time and more economical if one stays longer. It is a great safe neighborhood and one block to the... More

The St. Charles Guest House is one of New Orleans’s best kept secrets. A roomy, clean, safe, affordable,friendly, funky place to stay in the heart of New Orleans. Great for singles, couples and groups looking to enjoy being in the City. The St. Charles Guest House in NOT a chain motel. It has the flavor of an old school boarding... More

The charm of St. Charles Guest House Hotel comes from its history, location, and antique feeling. Situated in the center of New Orleans, in the Garden District, It has been a lodging place for 60 years and still continues to provide great service. It is within walking distance to the World War 2 Museum and Contemporary Art Museum, which I... More
