Great small hotel, and like New Orleans, somewhat funky. Excellent and very helpful staff. My room was a spacious one with typical NOLA balcony, which I enjoyed. Only the balcony was of course onto the street and it's the French Quarter, a half block off Bourbon, so street noise at night was excessive. No fault of the hotel. Will certainly return to Olivier House, but would ask for a room with balcony onto one of the interior courtyards.

Loved staying here! The location was so convenient and the property was beautiful and very cozy!

Great location for access to dining, Bourbon St. and shopping in the French Quarter. The room we had was unique like the rest of the hotel and had everything we needed. The AC worked like a charm after a hot day. The upstairs loft had 2 lamps but still pretty dark in the room. It helped us to sleep in though.

The staff is fabulous and so very helpful! The place is a piece of history and has done a great job renovating the place. Would definitely stay there again the next time in Nawlins!

It’s like stepping back in time. Old world, amazing

Within walking distance of everything.

We stayed in the honeymoon suite and it was amazing. The hotel has so much charm and character and the bathroom and huge balcony were amazing!

It’s was great

Perfect location.

Great Place! Bobby is awesome

The staff was amazing. I also enjoyed the look of the hotel. They seem to have preserved the look and essence of New Orleans.

Beautiful charming historical homes converted into private rooms. Oozing charm and right off of Bourbon Street. There are also hotel cats, if you’re into that sort of thing.

This was a gem of a hotel, staff was excellent, went above and beyond! They were so helpful with all our questions and had many recommendations for us. They assisted us with the trolley and bus system to go to the garden district and museum, even set up our cab to get us to the airport on our departing day which was cheaper than uber. The whole hotel was clean and had that old French quarter feel. Beds were amazing to the point I want that mattress at my house!! Never slept that well on a vacation! Air conditioning was great and the shower was wonderful every night! Pool was refreshing after walking all day! I will definitely stay here again when in New Orleans! It’s a block from bourbon street but the hotel itself was very quiet, sound machine comes in the room however we didn’t use it at all.

Quaint place, coffee and cookies 24/7. With a building this age, poor insulation is to be expected so I would recommend the top floor if you don't want to hear every step the occupants above make. Literally sounded like a heard of buffalos. Unfortunately, the FQ is suffering - it is much dirtier than it was 10 years ago and I didn't feel safe walking around. A lot of the cooler shops have been closed down, filled with more tourist shops that are a dime a dozen. I lived in the FQ back in 2007 and loved it. Now, I don't think I will return until they do something. A lot of riff raff and it was filthy.

If you want to stay at the real thing in the real place this is it. An 1840s complex tastefully period decorated with balconies. One block off Bourbon on Toulouse for my 87 yr old mother, no ubers necessary. Rouse market not far either. Delightful.

So much history and character! We loved the unique layout, the resident house cat, the hospitality and the coffee bar!

The staff did an excellent job of making our stay comfortable. Our first trip to New Orleans was a lot more than we expected, but in a positive manner.

We just went to NO for Memorial Day weekend and stayed at the Olivier House while we were there. It was such a rad little hotel. We had a balcony room and I loved sitting out there in the morning with my coffee while my wife slept off the late nights on Bourbon. The entire hotel is so unique and cute. One afternoon we brought cheese and wine to the patio to get out of the heat. It was such a great location to relax. We brought some friends and family to enjoy afternoon snack and they all said that next time they're in town they want to stay at the Oliver House. Our original plan was to stay at the chain hotel nextdoor, where our cousins were staying, but we're so glad we went this route instead. The staff was helpful and accommodating and the cats were great. Can't wait to go back!

Hi Conley, That is a good tip for others to know about the balconies. The ones overlooking the street really put you into the action and are fun for seeing what is going on but can be noisier at times, mostly on the weekends. The ones over courtyards are a bit more romantic but certainly a more mellow experience. No right or wrong just different experiences. Any guest can call the hotel before time and request either one. It was a pleasure to have ya'll with us and hope to see you again sometime, Jim

Hi Sophia, Glad you loved your time here, and that you found the Olivier House to be beautiful. We feel like travel ought to wipe away all the cares and worries of the days or weeks before, and a place that is beautiful is a good place to start. Since the Olivier House is historic on top of that, our hope is that our guest feel like they are just in another time and place that immerses them so fully that there just isn't any room for stress or worry. Then, for a few days at least, they can just let go and live! Thanks for your review, it was a pleasure to have ya'll with us, Jim

Hi Jennifer, thank you for staying with us and for your review. Nice to hear you found the Olivier House close to many good dinning spots. It has been said that the food in New Orleans is a delicious as the less criminal forms of sin. One does have to be careful not to over do it with all the good food here. As an example to our guest, I myself exercise a great deal of moderation on the subject and so make it a rule never to eat while asleep. Glad ya'll had a good time here. We'll take a look at the lamps in the room to see if it needs more, Jim

Hey Micheal, we appreciate you nice review. New Orleans does listen to the seductive call of the future, but she always keeps one foot in the past. That is what keeps it steeped in traditions with a certain culture and way of life. If a visiter really wants to find the soul of the it, having a desire like yours, to understand the history and immerse yourself in that history, is the way to do it. Everybody knows what New Orleans looks like, but only those like yourself will know what it feels like. Thanks for spending some time with us and hope to see you again, Jim

Hi Jean Pierre, j’aime ton nom de type Nouville Orleans. So many of our guest like it that they are able to walk to everything easily. Glad you felt that way also. Jusqu’a la prochaine food, Jim

Hi Alexander, Great to hear ya'll enjoyed the honeymoon suite and the balcony overlooking the street. Those street side balconies are great for people watching, but can sometimes be a bit louder at night than the interior balconies. Of course, sleeping comes so easy to some people, they can do it with their eyes closed! For others, (who didn't get that pun) noise could bother them. So all our rooms have white noise machines just in case. Then again, some people staying in the honeymoon suite, maybe aren't too concerned about other people's noise.(nothing like a nice "professional" reply to a review) Anyway, we love having guest like ya'll, and thank you for your nice review. Hope to see you both back again sometime, Jim
