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 Kinda skeevy outdated room with bad carpet, horrible ceiling tiles, a bathroom door that didn't close, no tv (but we knew that...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

Beautiful hotel right in the heart of downtown. I was very happy to find one that alowe dogs as our was on board for this trip to the beach and the St. Charles was a pit stop.

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
