This review is for the Single Person room only. I stayed for 12 nights and overall liked the place, but I'm not too picky. That said, there were definite downsides. 1. Accessing the room requires going up a total of 19 steps, carrying your heavy luggage. 7 steps, a place to rest, 5 more, a place to rest, 7 and at the top. Now that might not seem like a lot, but to a person with limited capabilities or mobility, it's a mountain. It would be nice if that were mentioned in their room description. 2. No phone in the room. I don't have a cell phone, so that was a bit off putting for me. No way to call anyone in case of emergency. 2. The kitchenette has no microwave, just an old gas stove. Don't know if it worked or not, didn't try. That wasn't made clear in the minimal amount of room photos available on their website. Would have loved a microwave, especially since I was there 12 nights. If they took out the stove and replaced it with a microwave, it would make the room much better in my opinion. Nice to heat up leftovers during a long stay. 4. Only shower amenity provided in the bathroom is bar soap. No shampoo, conditioner, or lotion. Not good, if your don't bring your own. There are stores nearby to purchase what you need, but it was a bit surprising having to scramble for what seems like basic provisions. Also, the bathroom is very tiny. I would not recommend this Single Room to a person of size. I had to turn sideways to enter the bathroom, or be blocked by my shoulders. The shower stall is dark and small. You could hit your head on the sink if you fell asleep on the toilet, they're that close together. For the record, I'm 5'1" and had to stand on my toes to see my face in the mirror. 5. No "Do Not Disturb" signs. Some days, I don't need the room serviced but there's no way to let them know until they walk up 19 steps and knock on your door. 6. Worst of all was the wifi. There were two routers you could sign into, but neither of them had a decent signal. I tried on a tablet and a laptop, and was sadly disappointed with the lack of connectivity. This was the only way I could contact my family to let them know I was ok, and it didn't work 80% of the time. Don't advertise free wifi if it doesn't work well, please. I knew it was a small room to start with, so I'm really not complaining about the size. Just mentioning it for potential future travelers who might not fit well with this room. Good points? Location, mostly. 3 blocks away from Verti Marte, 3 blocks away from Rouses grocery. The room does have a good mini fridge for storing leftovers. The coffee they provide is delicious, the coffee maker could be updated a bit. Good cable tv, expanded basic with music channels. Great air conditioning. Comfortable bed. Wallpaper is a bit dated, but it's a guest house so I didn't mind much. It is not sound proof, take that into consideration if noise bothers you, You can hear all the noise in the street all day and night. In summary, this room would be better suited to a shorter stay. 12 nights of the Single Room was a bit too much for me. If the wifi worked better, it wouldn't have felt as long. Please fix the wifi, your guests would greatly appreciate it! I'm including many photos, so the next person will have a better understanding of what they're buying.

The location is IDEAL! You are in walking distance of everywhere and in particular Bourbon Street which is a block away! After a full night of fun, drinks and food, you can saunter back to the hotel and the area is safe at any hour. The folks at this hotel are very friendly and seem genuinely pleasant. They kept us informed of activities and parades. The wifi signal is not reliable at all so hopefully management addresses that weakness. If you intend to spend most of your time exploring what New Orleans has to offer, then this quaint and intimate hotel is a perfect place to stay! The room was clean though a bit dark and the bathroom was a tad small yet also very clean. While the size of the room is very limited, it should not be a deterring factor given that there is so much to do, see and taste in the French Quarter so you are hardly in the room except to sleep and shower! You lack for nothing at this location, cafes, a grocery, restaurants, bars, walking tours, shops and boutiques are close by. We used transportation to and from the airport only! Everywhere else we were able to walk.

The room was small but Ok and had everything we needed, the location is GREAT, right in the middle of everything but in a quiet street. But the hotel charged a service fee of $25 that is hard to miss when you make the reservation and it couldn´t be cancelled even right after I did it, 6 months in advance. That made the price a bit expensive fot what it offers, since the WIFI is really bad, it has no common areas and no place to leave our bags the final day until it was time to catch our flight. Overall it was not a bad place to stay, but for that price I saw better options.

This small hotel is perfectly located in the French Quarter just one block from Bourbon St. and within walking distance of most anything you want to do or see. The proprietor was very friendly and provided maps and suggestions for us. We loved that we could walk to just about everything including the WWII museum and Jackson Square. The rooms are small but very nice and provided maid service daily with fresh towels. We had room 6 which was very private and quiet. The walk to the war museums is long, about 20 blocks, but doable with comfortable shoes😀. Everything else is right there at your doorstep. Plenty of delicious food and sights to see nearby. We will definitely stay here again!

This room was in a great location , but that's about all I can say that is good. Smelled of mildew, tiny bathroom too small to put toiletries in, horrible bed and not at all as website depicted. No front desk, no room service and certainly no casino. Our credit card was charged $25 more per night than quoted on and at this point is not being refunded by the hotel. If you like a rundown room and hidden fees, stay here!

the rooms (suites?) are old and shabby. Sheets looked clean but can't be sure when bedspread was last washed. Only place on a tough weekend so we thought it might work. We were able to deal with the less than desirable rooms, but the manager/owner was totally non-responsive. Couldn't get an itemized bill. Checkout time was 11 and our flight was not till 4 so asked if we could leave our luggage. Hostile reply no room and walked away. Never again

We visited during the first weekend of Mardi Gras (wet and wild). While we have stayed at large chain hotels in the past, we wanted the flavor (and value) of a small independent. The Royal Street location was perfect, convenient to great restaurants and bars in the Quarter without the drunken crowd scene. To go to Riverwalk, Canal Street, Hurrah's, just jump on the Riverside Trolley, a short walk away. The hotel is vintage and charming. That means that the bathroom is small, but spotless. The little kitchenette is small but gave us added convenience. The bed is standard size, but comfortable. There were two umbrellas in the closet which was very nice. I spent part of an afternoon sitting on the hotel's front porch listening to a great blues band playing across the street. There's no parking. We parked in a garage on Rampart Street that was reachable by trolley. If you want to feel a part of New Orleans, this is an excellent place. If you need space, modern, more amenities, then stick with the name chains.

We stayed in room 6 which was on the side of the house. The room was big enough for a queen bed, two chairs and two dressers. There was a mini kitchen and bathroom en suite. Shower only. Toilet is super close to sink due to lack of space. Most hotels in New Orleans are small, so I can't complain. The room was clean. Housekeeping was weird. You never knew when they'd be coming and you couldn't decline services. They moved my stuff around the room and I'm not sure why. I locked the suitcase ahead of time due to other reviews. I'm glad I did. Nothing went missing though. Great porch and back garden. We sat on the porch a lot, drank and enjoyed a lot of music and people watching. Hotel is in a safer area. It's removed from bourbon street so it's pretty quiet.

I stayed in a small room here. It is not as convenient to use as some of the larger hotels as there is no front desk and the room was really small, with old, creaking floorboards but it has character that many people would probably prefer. The location couldn't be better for exploring the french quarter -- there is a coffee shop down the road to relax in during the day and the street seemed very safe. The porch would be great for watching parades. The decor was attractive.

Their "2 BR Delux suite" is anything but. It's a one bedroom suite with a bed thrown in what would normally be a living room/sofa sleeper area. Doors wouldn't even close to one of bedroom w/no latch. Couples nightmare! Smelled of mildew. 👎🏼
