“Old well cared for inn with charm and style”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 17, 2014

A very good location on Urlsulines toward the end of Bourbon. The Lafitte's Blacksmith Shop is nearby. If you want a polyester perfect cookie cutter room this is not the place. These are old buildings which have had some well done upgrades. Good bathroom, good air conditioner, great bed. Staff was wonderful, helpful and informative. We were on the street side and there was not enough noise which kept from a good nights rest. Le Croissant d'Or down the street was the breakfast place for us on 3 mornings. The group owns other similar properties we may check out on our next trip but the location of Urluslines was perfect for us.

Room Tip: Stairs could be a problem for some. Ask for gound floor room.

We absolutely loved this quaint little guest house!! It was tastefully updated without losing it's charm! The rooms were clean and the staff was helpful and friendly! It's walking distance to just about any where, but bring good walking shoes! We love the city of New Orleans, and can't wait to bring our friends back with us to this lovely Guesthouse!

Spent the weekend here. Carrie Sue greeted us and the place was perfect for us; two adults and no children. Small and intimate, wonderfully clean and comfortable and the best location. Hot tub was a plus. Get a room that faces the courtyard. It was quiet and the bed was comfy. Housekeeping was spot on. We will return...

We found the location of this hotel really convenient to everywhere we wanted to walk to in the French Quarter. And yet, it was a quiet location. I am late in getting to this review- we stayed in November 2013, Thanksgiving weekend- probably a quiet time of year as far as New Orleans goes. We had a street level room, and we were not really bothered by too much noise, just the garbage pick ups in the early morning. However, being a street level room, there was really no way of getting some light into the room without having the whole room on view from the street since the only "windows" were the doors. Beautiful and original as they were, that made the room very dark in a time of year that was somewhat gloomy anyway. If we stay here again, we will go for the upper story so we can open the room. The bed was comfy, and room decoarted nicely.
It was quite chilly when we were there, and the hot water was not very hot. In fact, lukewarm would be the description. I'm sure its not like that in the warmer months.
And we were disappointed they did not keep the hot tub open. It would have been nice to be able to use it, but it was covered and cold.
The hot tub not being open, the hot water situation, and the lack of light in the room makes this a 3 star review. Almost a 4...but thats "very good". We were not really feeling like it was a good choice for our money.

This was my first time in NOLA so I really just picked this Inn because of location, quaintness and price. Now that I have a better feel for the French Quarter I have to say I would still pick this Inn. The Inn is restored buildings from the 1830's. Each room is tastefully updated, decorated and unique. The beds were very comfy, the staff very helpful and friendly and even though it has easy access to all in the French Quarter it's on a nice quiet street. I was traveling with my 21 year old daughter and she thought the best part of the trip was the Inn on Ursulines because if was quaint, comfy but really close to the craziness on Bourbon Street. Our only concern was that they have no nearby parking but directed us to a lot they own with a sister property 5 blocks away. The lot is open on street level and my daughter felt nervous leaving her new car there unattended for 4 days. We checked on it a few times and every thing was fine, no one had bothered with her car. They charge $20 per night for parking. Definitely consider stay at this Inn, you won't be disappointed! Ask about their midweek special - 3 nights for the price of 2! A great bargain for such a wonderful Inn!

Room Tip: We stayed in room 21 on the first floor with 2 queen beds and will ask for that room again!

First time staying in an Inn as opposed to a hotel (our 3rd time in NOLA) the rooms are very clean and cute, beds are SUPER comfy, bathrooms are clean but the water pressure could have been a little stronger. We happened to have a hot tub outside of our room and it was an excellent surprise. Staff very friendly and helpful. Would highly recommend

...without all the craziness, this is a nice place to stay. The courtyard rooms are comfy and fairly quiet. The proprietors are wise enough to put ear plugs in the bedside tables in case things get a little noisy...this is New Orleans, after all ! The rooms are furnished in a crisp, sophisticated style that is clean and inviting. Baths are good sized with nice amenities. I have stayed in more opulent places but this one was a nice balance, close to the heart of the quarter, and in easy walking distance to restaurants and bars.

Room Tip: The street side rooms are, on some nights, noisy. Take earplugs...but the hotel furnishes them, too...
