My boyfriend was a bit skeptical when I said that I wanted to book a room with bunk beds. He was won over when he saw the place and its location. It's near the French Market and the great places on Frenchman Street. They make use of the tight space in the room. There was plenty of lighting plus a...

Me and my wife stayed here this past weekend for our 1 year anniversary and we loved it! The location is perfect because your close enough to walk to everything and far enough from the loud hustle and bustle of the night life. We got great hospitality from the manager Kelly, she was very sweet and so knowledgable on the...

This was our 3rd time to NOLA in 6 years. Love this city and found this place to be a different vibe than a hotel. You certainly get more of a local feel here than at a hotel or B&B. If you are picky about accommodations, then you won't like this place - it is not for everyone. If you...

Great location for the French Quarter, which has some great bars and restaurants, although we found the music on Frenchman Street to be better. The room is a 4-5 minute stroll from all the action on Bourbon Street but far enough away to be quiet. We stayed in the Peacock Room, which had the potential to be great but fell...

We had a great weekend at the quaint rooms at RBGH. Each room has a character of its own and is spotless and old-timey - mine had a bunk bed and my cousin's was all done up in blue jazz. I don't think there was breakfast, but we wanted to walk down to Cafe Du Monde anyway. Everything in the...

My wife and I wanted a weekend alone in the French Quarter and this little gem was perfect. Kelly, the inn keeper, was so helpful and courteous. The location is convenient to one of our favorite restaurants, Port of Call. It's a must! It is New Orleans, so parking can and will be a nightmare. We stayed in the Peacock...

I can't say enough good things about this place! We booked the room a little later than we probably should have, so the Peacock Room was all that was available for the days my boyfriend and I were going to be in New Orleans, but when we got there, we were beyond impressed with the accommodations. The room was clean...

Second stay at Royal Barracks Guest House and this time we enjoyed the suite. Kelly and Sugar B. greeted us with a glass of wine and showed us to our room. The real charm of staying here is once your settled in you feel like one of the neighborhood locals, coming and going as you please with all the bars...

This little guest house was the best place for my husband and I to stay on our first trip to New Orleans. Kelly is the manager along with her lovely little dog Sugar. She makes you feel like you are actually staying at her home. She is one of those special people that as soon as you meet her, you...

How awesome is it to say you stayed in a guest house with bunk beds. This RBGH is in walking distance to French quarter and bourbon. The quarters are small and the pooper is a bit open but overall a neat little place. Problem which is why rating goes down is that when I came back Saturday afternoon, I could...

Staying in French Quarter

Neighbourhood Profile
French Quarter
A small and teeming network of laissez-faire living lounged out on the balmy banks of the Mighty Mississippi, the French Quarter has long been a port of call for folks in search of a good time and a great story. Perpetually inebriated Bourbon Street runs across its midriff like a strand of cheap ribbon tied around an otherwise rather pretty and impressively well-kept vintage dress. Throughout the rest of the Quarter, brightly colored Victorian homes and businesses, famously done up with wrought-iron features, provide a distinct and immediately recognizable backdrop for all varieties of fun. At any given moment in this historic riverside setting, some of America’s finest meals are being cooked, most potent cocktails are being mixed, and most engaging music is being performed.
