This house was on a quite street. The owner was so accommodating and generous. Our room was spacious and comfortable. Private bathroom. They offered a hot breakfast or simple grab and go meal. The other guests were all so friendly during our stay. We will be returning next year.
It's a shame because this would've been a 5 star review... Booked the red room well in advance because its was it the back of the house, a little more private, and just off the court yard. Communicated with the owner on our arrival time...he was very nice and mentioned no problems. When we arrived, he shows us into the green room. I stopped and asked him...wait... What about the red room? Only then does he tell me that he gave our room away to someone else because a baby had been crying in an adjacent room the night before. Their reservation overlapped with your 2 night res, so (only because I asked) we could move into the red room on night two. The owner seemed taken aback that this was an issue for me. We traveled a long distance and I wanted to settle in and not worry about packing up mid trip to move rooms. Only after my boyfriend suggested that this was unacceptable, did the owner say, well I guess I can give you a discount. Someone else was in the room I booked, so what could I do? We took the green room. The room itself was ok. Except the bathroom door wouldn't latch so there was zero privacy (it swung open and the bathroom is right next to the bed). We had to prop it shut with the trash can. Romantic trip to nola!! Ugh. Later on we chatted with the people who were moved into our room and they said they never requested a room change. The owner took it upon himself! I was so angry! I guess a reservation means nothing here. I never received a discount, either. Would still love to see it! We opted not to switch over to the red room day two since it wouldn't be ready until 11ish and we had reservations for brunch elsewhere. We didn't want to mess up our plans. Other than the room issue, the burgundy is a nice house in a quiet neighborhood. Decent price, comparatively. Breakfast was good (enjoyed before checkout). A bit of a hike to the french quarter, but doable. Experience just left a bad taste in my mouth and put a damper on a special trip. I planned this for my boyfriend's birthday trip and paid for the whole thing. Being a teacher, I don't make a ton of money so I try to research my heart out to get good bang for my buck. All the planning in the world wouldn't change how this ended up. ☹️…
Our NOLA trip was definitely enhanced by staying in this lovely, quiet home. We felt very at-ease here. I loved the location, in a quiet neighborhood but so close to Frenchmen St. and many great restaurants. Our room was cozy and beautiful, with everything in perfect working order. Like all the other reviewers, I also want to celebrate Joe's kind hospitality and Federico's amazing breakfast service. I'll stay here again if I come back to NOLA.
This place has everything. Reasonable price, quiet but convenient location, great breakfast, and perhaps the best porch in the Marigny. Great restaurants in walking distance, and a short walk to the Frenchmen Street and the French Quarter. Joe and Federico are wonderful hosts, and Federico puts on a fine breakfast. We absolutely loved it, and would absolutely stay again. Recommended!
We had a clean, comfortable, and spacious room in this converted double shotgun house with eclectic New Orleans décor in gentrifying Marigny area. Host Joe was informative and accommodating, and Federico’s breakfasts had lots of options and great fresh fruit. Convenient 10 minute walk to music venues on Frenchmen Street. Thirty minutes to Jackson Square. Twenty minutes to streetcar and French Quarter. Good value for the money. We would definitely stay here again.
We stayed at The Burgundy for a week this February and couldn't have been happier. Joe and Federico are superb hosts -- always available to help, but leaving you with your privacy. We stayed in the blue room which was comfortable and we loved the local decorations. The house itself is a traditional NOLA house in a quiet residential neighborhood -- but with tons of things within walking distance! French Quarter is about a 15 minute walk, Frenchmen Street is less. We loved the New Orleans Cake Cafe (about 4 blocks) for breakfast and THE BEST king cake. A special treat is the hot tub in the back yard at the Burgundy -- a wonderful place to recover from a fun day of sightseeing and parading! We definitely will book The Burgundy for our next trip to NOLA. Thanks again, Joe and Federico!…
Highly recommend this nice, clean place to stay in NOLA. Located just 15 min short walk to French Quarter, safe residential neighborhood. Joe and Federico are the best hosts we have met. Federico makes best breakfast, yum,yum. Would stay here again and recommend to friends and family.
The best thing about this B&B was the outstanding hospitality of the hosts -- from the warm welcome upon our arrival, to the wealth of information about what to do and how to get around, to the delicious breakfast, and other small details too numerous to mention, they were wonderful. Our room, and the house as a whole, were very comfortable. The location, in a safe residential area within walking distance from Frenchmen Street, was perfect. We look forward to staying there again next time we're in New Orleans.
On arriving here in the dark we were a little concerned as area looked a bit scary, Dont be. The next morning we felt very happy and not worried at all. It's in a great location easy walking to the market, the river and bourbon st. Joe meet us on arrival showing us around giving us a map and explaining places to eat and drink locally . We ate in silk rd and the tai both are fab. Breakfast had a good range of food. Room and bathroom maybe could do with some updating . Bed was comfy. Found bedroom quite noisy from the trains in the night and also a bit light. All in all a nice place to stay and would recommend.
Everything! When we got there we could not get in, but within 3min the owners came strolling up the sidewalk and cheerily welcomed us to their home. We were offered water or beer and finished our check-in and all the places were were curious about were annotated on a map for us, which proved invaluable all weekend! We were then shown to our room, walking through the charming house to the back. Our room had its own entrance to the back patio (sadly too warm to use the spa!) and was clean as a whistle. The space was typical of this type of house, smaller floor space with HUGE ceilings. There were shelves with brochures and pamphlets if you were looking for information or something to do, and water/beer available for a minimal fee in a shared fridge. We didn't partake in the full breakfast because we had brunch reservations both days we were there, but we did steal some fruit and juice while conversing with another pair of ladies staying in the house as well, they did partake in the breakfast which they said was delicious. The food was standard fair but well prepared, definitely a way to save money too. We were offered food both mornings which we politely declined, but our needs were always met. Saturday we wandered in and out a number of times as we prepared and partook in the Pride Weekend events and were greeted cheerily each time, offered beads, water, snacks, etc. Truly a wonderful experience, especially for the price. You are a bit of a walk from The Quarter, but we aimed to spend much of our time on Frenchmen St. anyway, which was a short walk away. If all your activities are in The Warehouse or Garden Districts, maybe choose somewhere closer, but if you're capable of the walk, we had no problem getting all the way to Canal St. and back. If you get too tired, Uber is always available, which is also how we went to and from the airport for around $34 each way. Compared to where we almost stayed, The Royal Sonesta on Bourbon, it was quieter, cheaper, and far more charming.…
