I stayed here with my boyfriend and my two friends. We had a great time here. I think what people need to understand about this place is it is a privately owned and run B&B. It is not a chain hotel and there will be differences! I love to stay at places like this that are kind of off the map, and I thought it was great and had a lot of charm. Beatriz (the owner) was very proactive with our reservation and making sure we were accomodated.
My boyfriend and I had a room with a queen bed which was nice. The bathroom was a little small, but we liked it. My two friends had a room with a king bed, and they had a much bigger bathroom than us! I liked their room too! We had no problems getting to where we wanted to go in New Orlean from this location. The only issue at the time we stayed was that the St. Charles streetcar was not running. But the B&B has no control over this.
Breakfast was really good. There is a big common breakfast area that was nice. As far as parking, we were able to park in the gated area. We had no problems opening and closing the gate (as I have seen some people complain about). It is a little hard to find the property from the street, but Beatriz explained this to us and what to look for before we arrived. So we had no problem finding the place. We also felt that we were in a safe location. Some areas in New Orleans can be a little shady, but where the B&B is seems nice. It was a somewhat residential location which was nice too.
Yes, it is an old property and it may not be for everyone. But my boyfriend, friends, and I loved it. It was perfect for our weekend trip and I have no complaints.
