“at the heart of the French Quarter”
Reviewed February 13, 2004

Staying at the Bon Maison makes you feel like you're a local. Walking back from a local corner shop with your food which you can cook in your own room kitchen (a new friend once made me an excellent Gumbo), you look at the 'tourists' and feel somewhat sorry that - unlike you - they don't stay round the corner. (A bit like how I feel in my own city - Edinburgh, Scotland.) The two owners (if they're still there - it was long time ago) are great when you need them but also leave you to do your own thing. A great wee place. Must go back.

Outstanding! This is one of the missed gems in New Orleans. The owners live on site and do an exceptional job of taking care of their guests.
I stay here everytime I am in N'Awlin's. It is impossible for me to speak more highly of this wonderful place.

Location location and location make this a terrific bargain. The bon maison is located a block or two past hte noisy part of Bourbon street - steps away from all the action but still secluded enough for a good nights sleep (on the other hand do not expect to be able to look out of you window on the crowds.
The entrance is a bit forbidding - a locked steel gate into a dark corridor, but they let into a cheerful courtyard. THere are about 6 rooms - the 2 I've stayed in were pleasent, but not luxurious, and had microwave, refrigerator, coffee maker (but no coffee!) etc. The couple who run the place are very helpful, rooms are clean. Only negative - it is a small place with no real security but a locked gate - you cannot help but wonder if somebody might find there way in one night - not that I know of this ever happening. For the price and location, you cannot beat it.
