My husband and I normally don’t stay in B and B’s but this place is a delight! Emily the innkeeper is a doll and has been so accommodating and terrific. She really made us feel at home. It’s a beautiful home with gorgeous decor but not stuffy or pretentious. The vibe is chill! 5 stars for sure!!

My husband and I came to New Orleans on a weekend trip from Austin. We loved our stay at the R&B Bed and Breakfast. It has the comforts of home while on vacation. Emily provided a nice spread for breakfast every morning, and welcomed us to grab food from the kitchen as we pleased. We enjoyed bagels with fresh salmon with capers for breakfast one morning, and fresh cinnamon rolls from a local bakery the next. We stayed in the Mardi Gras Jr. suite. It has its own bathroom with a jacuzzi tub which is lovely after walking around all day long. The bed is great, and the whole room is set up nicely. The place is located away from the noise, but still conveniently within walking distance to any site you would want to see in New Orleans. The owner provides drink vouchers for The Spotted Cat and Cafe Negril located next door to the B&B which play wonderful live music. I am so glad we stayed here, and don't think I will ever stay in a chain hotel again after such a wonderful B&B stay. Thanks a ton to Emily who was a wonderful hostess and gave us all the good spots to eat at :)

My partner and I stayed at the R&B for the second week of January for our much needed vacation after a crazy holiday season. We are both jazz musicians and our main passions are travel and New Orleans jazz... and yet this was the first time we were exploring NOLA together! As musicians, it was crucial for us to be where the best music was. Any local musician or dancer will tell you everything is centered around Frenchman street. This is the first reason why R&B is the ONLY place to stay if you share this goal... they are literally a two minute walk down Frenchman to one of the most popular jazz clubs, The Spotted Cat, an intimate old club where you can see some of the best bands in the city play nightly. Not to mention, there’s a piano in the bathroom. I’ve been to New Orleans quite a few times, so I know the lay of the land better than a first time visitor..... but with Emily the innkeeper’s advice and local insight, we did things this time that were brand new to us! We were lucky to come right at the start of Mardi Gras season, and Emily didn’t only tell us we HAD to go to the Joan of Arc Twelfth Night parade, but she came with us on the adventure and we had a blast weaving through the city! Both Emily and owner Rita are full of interesting info, stories, and just plain good conversation, which we got to enjoy daily at the breakfast table, which simply feels like you’re in the coziest, most beautiful version of what feels like your home in another life. They both go far and beyond the requirements that traditional B&Bs maintain to get the good reviews. Their love for the city is apparent in every conversation, and it is clear that their main goal is to show visitors the New Orleans that they are so passionate, to make everyone fall in love with the music, the culture, the food, the PEOPLE. The B&B itself is simply perfect. Each room, Rita explained, was themed for a different genre of music. We were in the blues room, which is complete with a HUGE raised bed (royalty style) and a double head shower with tub! There are nooks all over the house, including the front room and the side courtyard, to lounge in and get lost in a book. It really does feel like home - the home I imagine having in my dreams! If you want an unforgettable and truly unique experience during your visit to the Big Easy, this is THE place to stay, and these are THE wonderful people you want to know. Endless thanks and love to Emily and Rita..... we’ll see you again as soon as possible! ;)

This is a great little B & B on Frenchmen Street in New Orleans. Emily is a great Hostess who does her best to make every guest feel welcome. The rooms are comfortable and very clean. A beautiful parlor and formal dining room are underused. Not to say that this is a bad thing because the breakfast room/office is comfortable and inviting. I would love to see the private courtyard realize it’s potential. The next time I visit, I would love to enjoy a coffee or a glass of wine in this very underutilized area.

R&B Bed and Breakfast was perfect for a weekend getaway to New Orleans. Emily, the innkeeper, is welcoming, thoughtful, resourceful, and pays great attention to detail. She fixes a mean gourmet breakfast fit for a king/queen. You can tap into her vast knowledge of the food and culture of New Orleans, which is happy to share. The B&B is very well appointed. It is ideally located, close enough to the action on Frenchman Street, yet offers a tranquil experience with a quiet park in front. Don't forget to step out into the backyard with your freshly brewed cup of Keurig coffee on a crisp morning for a peaceful zen experience.

Recently decided to take my wife on a get away aka honeymoon. Upon her choosing the location I inquired about a little romantic flare and was blown away to see the care and love that was put into the room. Upon arrival we were greated by The Amazing Emily who was all smiles and had a very friendly personality led us to our room, showed us around the house and answered all my questions about the Architecture all the way to the layout of the town... Thank You for amazing stay, the lovely room, and the well needed vacation. We will 100% be coming back and booking our room at The R&B....

Enjoyed several days in this lovely B&B with friends! Emily, our host, was terrific! She treated us like family, provided wonderful recommendations for restaurants and music venues, and served us delicious breakfasts. This is a great location for those interested in the "music scene" on Frenchmen Street. It's not a bad walk at all to the French Market and other areas of the French Quarter. Lovely restored home with great amenities!

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.

great hotel on frenchman street


Fantastic place located a few blocks from the center of the French Quarter allows for easy access. Frenchman Street itself is full of great clubs and restaurants literally within less than a minutes walk from the R & B.

clean and comfortable


R&B Bed and Breakfast is a great place to stay! Rita, the owner, could not have been more accommodating and helpful. It is right next to the French Quarter (we walked everywhere) and the house and room were very clean and comfortable. Our room was private and lovely as are all the rooms. Rita and her husband Pierre have done an excellent job renovating their expansive 19th century home and decorating it with beautiful furnishings. Snacks were always available and Rita provided coffee and fresh pastries and fruits for breakfast. We would highly recommend staying at R&B!
