“Absolutely charming”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 8, 2012

I had three days alone in NOLA and needed somewhere quiet but with possibilities of socializing. The Green House turned out to be an excellent choice.

My room was big, clean and original, with windows towards the garden/pool area (wich is bigger than it appears on the pictures). It could have been noisy with other guests in the pool, but the whole place just oozed with tranquility and noise from the pool area was only a problem one of the nights (and not a big problem).

The host was relaxed and friendly, and generous with his time and advice.

Breakfast was... uh... American. Wich is not a good thing in the eyes of a Norwegian. Too much sugar and fat. But it was the best breakfast I got during my visit to the USA. And the fact that the guests of The Green House Inn are allowed to help themselves in the kitchen was really convenient.

Great place, that I wish I could have stayed at longer!

An Excellent location.with secure parking. 5-6 minutes by car to the French Quarter , 2 blocks from the highway but you would never know it. lovely accommodations. the bed was very comfortable, the hot tub and pool an absolute delight after a long day out in New Orleans. Highly recommend it.

Hello Drik,

Thank you for choosing the Green House Inn for your stay in New Orleans! We are glad that you had a chance to experience a few of the many sites New Orleans has to offer and enjoyed the hot tub after a long day of touring. We loved having you as a guest would love to have you stay with us again!

This is a small hotel with a pool and hot tub (clothing optional) in an old house. Our room was at the back of the property, in the old servants' quarters, and it was very clean, comfortable and quiet. We had a king-size bed and our own bathroom with nice thick towels. Breakfast is a do-it-yourself affair with a selection of fruit, cereals, yogurt and a waffle iron. Snacks are available at any hour of the day or night. Frank called to find out the details of our arrival and followed up with information on travel from the airport, which was helpful. All the staff members we met were very friendly and welcoming. We are regular visitors to New Orleans and would definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: Rooms at the front might be noisy because of the bar on Magazine Street.

Just got back from a nice trip to NOLA with my wife. We really enjoyed the hotel but both agreed a 4 for the rating.
The location is in an easy to get to location and very close to bus routes to and from downtown.
The only real knock on the place is the fact that it is an old building and could use a few basic up grades. One issue was that it was a real struggle to get anything more than luke warm water in the shower. Again, it is an old house so that makes some sense, but if you are like my wife and I a hot shower is a must.
That being said, the bed was super comfortable, the pool was very relaxing. I'd have no problem recommending this place to people if they were going to NOLA.

This was the last place that my wife and I stayed on a 24-night cross-country drive, and it was easily the best. The price was right, the check-in process was easy, the innkeepers were friendly and very accommodating, the property was nice and well-maintained, the parking was secure, the pool and hot tub were awesome, and the bed was comfy. The inn is located in a transitional area, but at no point did we feel unsafe. We walked to and from the French Quarter multiple times during our stay and never did we feel threatened in any way.

All around A+. We will definitely stay here again!

Room Tip: Awesome place for couples, but probably not very convenient for families with small children.

This place is perfect. We were unbelievably impressed. The moment we arrived, we were personally welcomed, given a tour, recommendations of what to do, where to go, local bars, etc. The owner has lived there for majority of his life. They are flexible, hospitable, laid back. There is are snacks available around the clock, the pool is clothing optional - but it's not full of a bunch of people trying to see naked people. It's very classy and calm - It's like having your own personal oasis. (A great place to tan your butt cheeks with out living a scene from Eurotrip).

After a night out, this gives you the perfect COMFORTABLE AND CLEAN BED to come back to, RELAXING & INVITING pool, family style breakfast, CLEAN quarters, UNIQUE bedrooms, and WELCOMING STAFF!

I'll never stay anywhere else when I go there.

We have stayed at the Green House inn twice and are headed for our third third time very soon, yet not soon enough. I can't tell you how wonderful the staff has been to us during both of our stays and I don't see that experience changing on our next visit. I highly recommend a stay at the Inn if you enjoy a relaxing place to stay while in a city not known for its calm. You can relax at the Green House Inn as much as you want and party as much as you want in the French Quarter and the rest of the city. It is truly an experience, take each day as it comes, see how you feel and enjoy both worlds!! I can't say enough about the accomodations, staff and the beauty of the setting.

Room Tip: First floor access to the pool or a nice, quiet view from the second floor, there are no bad rooms!!
