“Great Place!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 30, 2005

This is a place where you can get a true New Orleans experience, and not have to worry about the noise etc... of one of the more touristy locations. Yet, it is not so far away from everything as to be a problem getting to where you want to go.

Nice staff! Great free full breakfast. Nice clean rooms (get #1or #3) and wonderful balcony where you can watch the locals go about their daily business. It's an easy walk to the river and Frenchman St., and not bad at all to the FQ proper. We walked home every night, (3 of us) and had no problems whatsoever. One thing though, if you like really great water pressure, you might look elsewhere. But since that was the only con for this place, I can still highly recommend it!

My husband and I stayed last October and we are now planning on going there this fall. The staff are excellent and the rooms are nice, the breakfast is great. We hope the same staff are going to be there for our next visit.

We just returned from New orleans and while there we stayed at a lovely little B&B called The Balcony Guest House. It is situated 6 blocks from the French Quarter and you can walk that easily OR take public transit which stops almost outside the door of the B&B. The staff at the B&B couldn't have been nicer. This B&B is situated above a little neighbourhood pub/restaurant/grocery store. Breakfast is served at the restaurant each day and is limited thru the week (weekends there is quite a choice of breakfast entrees) to bacon and eggs, toast etc. or a panini sandwich (scrambled egg, bacon, tomatoes on a panini bun). Tea, coffee and soft drinks are available at all times, free of charge. As well you are entitled to a welcome cocktail. Breakfast was so filling to us that we often skipped lunch or just had something very lite when we were out sight seeing. Parking is free and on street parking. It is a safe neighbourhood and we didn't feel threatened when coming home in the evening. There is a fabulous balcony that wraps around 1/2 of the building and was of use to us. Our room was lovely, a bit on the small side, but there was also a pretty common sitting area that we could take advantage of as well as the wonderful outdoor balcony. The room was furnished beautifully and the bed was a queen and was very comfortable. We can't say enough about this lovely gem of a place. If you would like to see their website, go to ----------------------------- and have a look for yourself.

After a mix up with my room and which one I was suppose to have, it was all smooth sailing after that. Zack, the manager was so helpful as were the rest of his staff. The room was nice and comfortable. The hot breakfast in the downstairs restuarant was great. The food in general was very good in their restaurant. It was also very convenient having a grocery store on the premises. Another thing that was nice is that Zack and I talked several times on the phone before my arrival. He gave me many great suggestions on where to go and what to see. I would highly recommend this B&B...I would definitely stay there again.
