That sound? That flavor? That certain je ne sais quoi that lets you known you’re in “Nawlins” and nowhere else? It’s all good and in broad abundance on the streets of Tremé, where so much of what’s considered to be the very best of New Orleans culture and tradition is, put simply, just how people go about their daily lives in this historic part of town. As one of America’s oldest African-American neighborhoods and among the nation’s first established residential areas for free people of color, Tremé’s significant heritage and contribution cannot be understated. This is especially the case when considering some of Tremé’s most famous residents, most notably jazz great Louis Armstrong. For full flavored food, funky and jazzed up music, and vibrant street life presented with homegrown pride, you can’t beat a visit to Tremé.

This used to be a private residence until the 70s, when then owner started renting out the individual rooms. It’s just on the other side of Rampart one block from where the FQ begins. All rooms are priced the same but the rooms are not all the same. There are some out by the

Overall great location and place to sleep. Breakfast was nice daily and wifi was free but really bad. We stayed in room 7 which had a balcony but the balcony door didn’t lock. Parking was supposed to be $25 per day but we were able to find free parking on the streets. The

Located on the edge of the Quarter and a half block from Louis Armstrong Park, just off Rampart Street, this B&B is reasonably priced, secure w/ secured parking (extra price but worth it) and manned by the kindest, loveliest, most helpful staff ever! The breakfast is continental

I find it VERY hard to believe the good reviews on here. Location is good, but that's where it ends. The location is NOT excellent. It's about 4 blocks from Bourbon street and within a few mins walk......but so are many other hotels and guest houses in the area. The rooms are

Value priced hotel near Bourbon Street. Nice area, helpful staff. The building is not perfect, but the rooms are clean and comfortable. Would stay here again! They have a self service breakfast with a waffle iron!

Is the area safe?
I agree, there is a far walk from Bourbon Street and I would not recommend walking late at night on streets, especially when there are not too many people around. The Guest House is close to Louis Armstrong Park on Rampart St area, which used to have a bad reputation at night. My understanding is that it is much better recently, but better be safe than sorry. I visited the area and the Park during the day and it was actually quite pleasant. But one evening we had to walk back from the French Quarter quite late, and I really felt uneasy. Some streets can be dark and are unpopulated.

I was there at the end of march beg. April 2016. Felt safe, just be smart when talking to locals. They'll run scams to get your $$$. Be smart the breakfast is waffles and toast. Bananas store bought muffins and fruits. I think yogurt and maybe OJ but I am not sure about the drinks. So as I thoufht it was a B&B... it is not its a Continental breakfast. But still a nice place. Employees are very friendly they need a maintenance man!!! $20 for lot parking otherwise street parking and be careful

I was there March 6th - March 9th 2015 and I had none of the issues that have been described here..neither did the 2 couples that were with us.We stayed out in the "slave quarters " behind the main house. 1 couple did have a palmetto bug but if you know ANYTHING about the south you would know that they are unavoidable. They are huge but not a sign of filthy conditions like northern roaches. The staff was extremely helpful. Calling cabs,suggestions for restaurants,brought me his local paper when he was finished with it and even helping one of our friends with a prank he pulled on us! I would definitely stay there again!! Sugar gets sugar ya'll....bless your heart.

I am not the hotel answering this question -- came to me as a TA member. Remember that NOLA is a nighttime place, so your early evening arrival is long before the party starts. The Guesthouse is an easy walk into the Quarter. Check out St. Louis Cathedral at Jeff Square as they frequently have free musical events. As you Wander around the Square you will find many artists working - many of them are very friendly and will tell you a lot of info that you don't get from the tours. The carriage ride at the square is also a great way to find your way -- take the added cemetery tour so you can go in without any concerns. There is a wonderful restaurant on Frenchman St. Armando's -- you will not believe that there is a wonderful place upstairs when you open the door, look up at very iffy stairs, and then get upstairs and see a very simple, old place. Food is dynamite, the Ocean Sauce on anything is a marvel. Hanging out at Cafe du Monde will give you free music in a safe place with a number of friendly folk around. I also like to travel -- live in the SF area -- and am now alone. If you are interested in looking at trips - see if you can't get a message to me through this site. PatiD

Hi thanks for inquiring, we also read the review of cat urine odor and that guest did complain of it, however all other guests, staff and myself found no evidence . We do however have cats on premises..in the courtyard,one Miss Stella does on occasion slip in to get some extra attention..I am happy to note that you are allergic and try and locate you on the inside of main house and see to it that Stella is not inside at anytime during your stay. If I can assist in any way please feel free and call us at the hotel and speak to me. Philip

"Any room upstairs (we were in room 8)"
"choose a room by staying someplace else if you are smart"
"The rooms on the second floor of the main building are hot and stuffy."
"Rooms in back have immediate access to the courtyard if you want to spend some time sitting/eating outside. Anyone can use the area."
"avoid at all costs"
