River House
Ranked #78 of 141 New Orleans B&B and Inns
Reviewed April 26, 2011

I can only add my enthusiasm to that of the other reviewers. My husband and I (in our early 60s) stayed in the third floor apartment and the other couple we were traveling with stayed on the second floor. We chose the third floor because Csaba recommended it after I told him my husband was a big guy with a back problem. Indeed, the bed was large and extremely comfortable, even for Steve! The room was whimsically and ecletically decorated. The bathroom was HUGE. Our friends loved the second floor apartment, as it was elegant, beautiful and comfortable with WOW factors everywhere.
I also fell in love with the Fauberg-Marigny neighborhood, close to Frenchman's street, and a few blocks from the Quater with trendy little
eating spots that served up surprisingly delicious food.
All in all, I would totally recommend River House to those travelers who value uniqueness, good service, beauty, and convenience in a true New Orleans neighborhood.

The huge house with only 3 spacious apartments is located in an old neighborhood just outside of the French Quarter. It can be used as a base to explore or, if you're not in a hurry, to just laze around by the pool and amongst all the great trees and smells.

Hosts, Csaba & David are fantastic. This my second stay and I will be back!

Has to be one of my favorite vacations of all time. House and Hosts were wonderful! If you like Old New Orleans this is the place to be. Very close to French Quarter but far enough away to spend quite time on the balcony.

Dates of stay: January 14-17, 2011
Travelers: Two, fifty-something married couples; second & 3rd floor apartments
Value: River House would be a bargain at twice the price.

Holy cow what a wonderful place to stay. I'll get to the extraordinary physical appearances of the River House in more detail below. But first, what sets this place apart from any other is its hosts, Csaba and David, who have spared no expense in renovating and decorating the three apartments in their home. The allure of the River House goes above and beyond its luxurious physical attributes. This place is managed by a couple who love what they have created and want to share it, and their city, with appreciative guests. The River House is not a bed&breakfast. Each apartment is private and secure and is fully self contained with separate bedroom, kitchen, bath, and living areas. Every amenity you'd find in a five star hotel is provided. In fact, our apartment came equipped with a brew-by-the-cup coffee maker and a separate espresso machine. A variety of coffees, teas, sweeteners, muffins, crackers and other snacks were in the cupboard. Our hosts stocked the refrigerators with sodas, water, milk, juice, and even cream cheese for our muffins. The interior decor of each apartment is unique and ranges from exquisite museum-grade antiques and rescued local memorabilia, to zany mid-Americana kitsch. Their labor of love places an obvious decorating emphasis on their guests' comfort, enjoyment, and even amusement. Our 2nd floor apartment was huge. The first and third floor apartments were of similar size or even larger. To top things off, Csaba and David welcome their guests to make use of the home's beautifully landscaped and lighted backyard garden, with fountains, a cabana, and an in-ground swimming pool. While my wife and I have probably experienced at least 1000 hotel nights world-wide, our stay at the River House was by far our most enjoyable.

I stayed here with my husband and another couple for three nights in April 2009. I seriously don't know where to begin, from the complimentary airport pick-up to the luxury linens on the beds, everything was perfect. I was a bit worried not being familiar with this section of New Orleans, since I have only stayed in the French Quarter but Csaba assured me everything was in walking distance and we were in a very safe neighborhood. Well, he was 100% right! Jackson Square is only about a 15 minute walk, but it will take you hours because it is such a lovely journey. It will take you a while to get off of Frenchman Street (if you ever want to leave)with all of it's live music and lovely restaurants, make sure to have Csaba or David show you where the local bakery is, AMAZING breakfasts! The mansion you stay in is filled with amazing antiques and personal touches like a stocked refrigerator, fluffy towels and fresh flowers. Don't plan on leaving the pool area because the comfy lounge chairs and tranquil setting are irresistible. I will NEVER stay anywhere again when I return to New Orleans. If you want to truly experience this wonderful city, stay with Csaba and David. You can go party and walk the streets of the French Quarter but then return to your "home."

During a recent 5-night stay in New Orleans for a conference, we chose to stay at River House at 625 Marigny Street rather than the designated hotels. For the same price, (consider taxes, occupancy fees, and other hotel surcharges) we had not a room, but an entire floor of a distinctive, beautiful 1850's house outfitted with every imaginable amenity. From a full kitchen (stocked with refreshments and light breakfast supplies) to a jacuzzi tub, high-speed internet-connected computer system, complete entertainment system --CD, DVD, VCR, and 2 TV's, telephones, lots of room to lounge on comfortable furniture, a queensize bed with fine linens, made to dream in, and don't forget the laundry facilities in the huge closet off the splendid bathroom. The carefullly chosen decor, flowers, dishes and toiletries only added to the complete feeling of being at home, or rather in your dream house. The hosts, David and Csaba could not be more hospitable and will provide you with as much help and as much privacy as you wish. Why stay in a bland, noisy hotel when you can have your own home in the Faubourg Marigny neighborhood, steps away from the raucous French Quarter and a pleasant ride on the riverfront line streetcar to the convention center?
