This place is under new ownership, sometime in the past couple of months. I hope that most of my problems can be attributed to a changing of the guards, however, I will warn others as I wish I had been warned. We had high hopes for the Voodoo Room because of the full kitchen and two rooms and perfect location. It is in a great location if you like Frenchmen Street and the Marigny. It's not so functional as two rooms since it is a shotgun and you have to walk through the bedroom to get to the bathroom and kitchen. The full kitchen was not as described or I expected; a hodge podge of dirty utensils and plates without a microwave or a working oven Lastly, it is my opinion that it was FILTHY. Although I tired to grin through the dirt, I couldn't handle it and we had to find another place to stay. Our feet were blackened by the dirty floors after walking around without shoes, the bedding was stained, the trashcans were beyond gross. These are just a few of my gripes about my stay. The bad taste came after, once we received our promised refund, less 2/3 of the refund for a "cancellation fee" which the owner failed to mention when she emailed me that she would be happy to refund our money.
