I can't recommend this place enough. This was my first time in New Orleans, spent a week there staying at this fantastic B&B. The location is ideal, on vibrant Frenchmen Street by the French Quarter. Most of all, Rita is a perfect and attentive host. The rooms are exceedingly comfortable and quiet; the beds are very comfortable; and Rita was assiduous in making sure I felt at home. She made sure there was a wide range of food for breakfast (going out of her way to buy a particular yoghurt I liked), recommended things to do in the city, and even booked me onto trips to secure the best rate. If you're going to New Orleans, if you're looking for a wonderful place to stay, look no further. CF

Our family stayed for three nights in November to attend a Saints game. We had a wonderful time. This B&B is so beautifully restored and cared for. It has a very homey and welcoming environment. Ms. Rita in nothing but a delight and excellent innkeeper. This is a home not a hotel room. Excellent overall location. Convenient to the French Quarter to go back and forth. I would highly recommend. When we come back to New Orleans this is where we will stay. Thank you Rita and Emily for making our family vacation such a success.

We stayed here for 3 nights in November and had a wonderful time. The house is beautiful and has been restored to a wonderful standard. It is homely and welcoming. Ms Rita was lovely and accommodated us by allowing us to stay an extra night. The breakfast was wonderful and we had the pleasure of meeting the hosts niece who gave us lots of information about where to eat. We ate at a restaurant she recommended and had a fabulous meal.The house was in the perfect palce to explore the old quarter. Would recommend to anyone wanting a nice relaxed stay.

I feel like we found our home in New Orleans at the R&B B&B. This house is so beautifully restored and cared for, it was a joy to stay here over a long weekend. We enjoyed time in the quarter, and the house’s excellent location made it so convenient to pop back in and drop off our purchases or freshen up before heading back out. Rita is a delight and a first rate innkeeper, I felt like we could talk to her for hours! Emily gave us great recommendations and a unique local insight, I can’t wait to come back and check out more of the great places she suggested. Generous hospitality is what sets the R&B apart from other beautiful hotels. We were warmly welcomed and really felt at home. Thank you Rita and Emily! We hope will see you again soon!

Perfect and charming location in the french quarter and just outside the most touristy area. We loved our stay at this beautiful and charming bed and breakfast. Rita, our hostess, was so welcoming and made sure we were well informed about New Orleans and the area. She was very helpful and offered to arrange tours for us and made great recommendations on what to see and which jazz clubs to go to. She even asked us what we would like for breakfast :) Would definitely return here again.

Room was quiet and clean and it was in a great location. Our host was awesome it made our trip even better. We couldn't have asked for a better experience and wouldn't stay anywhere else. The trip was even better than we could have expected, we would recommend to anyone going down there.

R&B Bed and Breakfast is a great find ... steps away for the party atmosphere of NOLA but also a nice quiet night's sleep. Rita (proprietor) offers timely, insightful tips and is super helpful in learning how to navigate about town. The breakfast is "always on" so there is no need to motivate super early, and it's also available for late night munchies. Comfy bed ~ I also liked the sheets!

We had 2 rooms for the Georgia/LSU weekend and decided to stay at the R&B Bed and Breakfast. The game didn’t turn out too well, but our accommodations and advice from Rita were fantastic. The location is amazing being a block from some of the best bars/clubs in Nola. There are multiple great breakfast places nearby if you want a bigger breakfast in the morning, although we had coffee, doughnuts, fruit which was fine. The furnishings were very comfortable and the house was very quiet. The house is located across from a park on a residential block of Frenchmen. We had a great time at the market, the Spotted Cat and Cafe Negril, but it was also a quick Uber to Bywater, the Quarter or Uptown. Rita has great recommendations, helping us with a pregame meal and she’s extremely accommodating. She gave up her parking spot when we needed one, I noticed she immediately lowered the AC when another guest asked and she provided us with a cooler and festival chairs so we could tailgate in Baton Rouge. When we set up our reservation, she answered all our questions and when we arrived she took the time to make sure we understood how to be safe in Nola. All in all, a great trip and I would definitely stay here again.

We recently stayed at R&B B&B as part of a group of 4 couples which is challenging to find accommodations to say the least. We were challenged also because 3 in the group are over 6' tall so it was important to have larger and more comfortable beds. After answering many questions for me when I initially inquired about the space, I took the info back to the group and decided this was the place for us - back in March. We finally arrived in October and were delighted. Yes, there is a lot of information for you when you arrive. But you are in someone's home and its in a fantastic location and in a region completely different from my world. I saw another review where someone mentioned the locking of the door, the park across the street, etc. I laughed at that because when asking another friend who grew up in NOLA for advice, she said 'be street smart - like in Manhattan". That resonated with me - when you have people from all over the world staying in your home its important to help them understand the area. It was a bit odd to be told not to put luggage on the bed but this also isn't a large hotel and there were luggage stands in every room from what I saw (there was in ours and we looked at our other friends rooms so that leaves one we didn't see) and I appreciate the amazing details in the bedrooms and authenticity. That's one of the reasons for staying here! There is no elevator and if you are staying upstairs you do need to 'lug' your luggage upstairs. I don't recall it being as many steps (only one floor instead of 3) as the place we stayed in Paris (as in France) so just something to help others do some comparison - if you been there you know what I mean. This was easy comparatively. If you haven't experienced the steps/no elevator in old countries and are comprised in any way then make sure you get a downstairs bedroom or perhaps look to another place to stay. I just want to be honest here as I also have done a lot of research and I read the reviews to help me figure it out. Speaking of bedrooms and doing research - I looked at a lot of places with 4 or more rooms when trying to find a good space. Lots of other places weren't clear and I'd have to look pictures and floor maps and you have to go through a room to get to another room. I want to be clear that at R&B all rooms are there own private rooms and all have their own bathroom. As for the breakfast part its mostly pastries, yogurts, fruit, cereal. They are not able to serve a hot breakfast due to being a boutique/5 room b&b. I don't make the rules - try interpreting the US tax code and you got it. But to be honest - no one wants that large of a breakfast. You want to go a few blocks in any direction to get breakfast. You just need enough to level you out in the morning especially if one wakes up earlier than others in your group! There are three amazing places less than a 1/2 mile from Rita's place. The St. Roch market is amazing with lots of little places to choose from inside which is about a 1/2 mile away (and featured in many chef/cooking shows), and Horne's and the Rose Nicaud which are literally right around the corner. And countless others but those three are all literally less than a 5-15 minute walk. My spouse can definitely recommend the "Cranky Wife" at Hornes :) Rita was the hostesses and shared a lot of information with us - she wanted us to have a great time and shared all of her knowledge with us. She even invited Amzie Adams over the first morning as soon as my spouse brought out his guitar and was softly playing at the breakfast table waiting for the rest of us to wake up. That was such a treat - Amzie is a local legend (and the local music shop proclaimed him a local legend - not just me!). That's the kind of local touch that Rita has and how dedicated she is to making sure you have a great time and I really appreciated that. She really wanted all of us to have a great time. We did have a fantastic time, Rita was a big part of it. The location is perfect - its at the end of Frenchman's where its way quieter than other areas of Frenchman's or Bourbon. i didn't hear anything crazy - no loud thumping music)and there were blackout curtains in every room. And when we came in late at night, thinking we were in trouble the next morning, after making peanut butter toast at 4 a.m., (I don't think we were noisy, just probably didn't clean up very well) Rita said that's what you are here for - to have a good time - and no worries. When she found out it was my birthday (my 50th lest you think it was my 21st and couldn't be sophisticated enough to know a good BnB when I saw one) she bought petit fours. I just couldn't eat them all (I tried!) but they were so appreciated and was so very thoughtful! I am not posting the picture of me at 12 a.m. eating some! So if Rita rubs you the wrong way - just give it a day to get over your jet lag, have some great food or go for a walk and enjoy the area. It can't be beat. And if you are into music, play music, enjoy music - its a great place. On Sunday we walked a blocked and at 10:30 a.m. (that's a.m. not p.m.) there were at least three choices of bars playing live music. Wow! I loved NOLA, have so many great memories with my friends, and R&B was the fundamental baseline for that - without a great place to stay - everything else becomes so much harder. I hope y'all enjoy it as much as I did.

This little inn is in a perfect location for enjoying history, food, and music. The building has been lovingly restored with all the modern amenities. Rita, our innkeeper, provided us with a nice array of snacks, beverages, and a continental breakfast. Comfy bed and a jacuzzi tub were perfect after long day of sightseeing.
