The Guesthouse is not staffed during the night. The curtains in our room were running to holes. The fridge was rusting. Mould in bathroom. No coffee in room. Stand... More

All of the bedrooms have TVs, but not the sitting rooms. There is also a very nice patio in back. The owners... More

friendly little guest house on a corner in the middle of the Marigny. Great indian influenced restaurant with nola flair downstairs. You must try the crab bisque. Friendly bar staff and locals made us feel at home.

The room was nice and clean for what I needed. The free breakfast was not that great. Doors were locked at 9;30 when breakfast was suppose to be 9-10. I had to call owner and nothing was set up. Food was picked over from previous day. Not much better the next day.

Perfectly situated close enough to walk to Bourbon St but far enough away to enjoy some quietness. People were very friendly and the room was nice and cozy and the balcony was just lovely to sit on and enjoy the evening breeze.

I went to New Orleans for a birthday trip. The beds at the Balcony Guest House were amazingly comfortable and the kitchen in our room was clean and spacious; however, the bathtub was not cleaned very well. We were in one of the older rooms but were able to switch after some of the guests in our party checked out.... More

Staying in Faubourg Marigny & Bywater

Neighbourhood Profile
Faubourg Marigny & Bywater
Nestled between the French Quarter and the Ninth Ward, the Faubourg Marigny & Bywater environs are largely residential. Of course, folks around here love to go out and have a good time as much as they do anywhere in NOLA. And if out-of-towners want to join in the festivities, well then so much the better! Home to some of the most revered live music venues in New Orleans, an eclectic gaggle of gourmand dining destinations, and a come-as-you-are vibe that’s as infectious as it is alluring, this is real deal New Orleans oozing with southern hospitality and the promise of a most epic night out. For endless opportunities to boogie, to admire row upon row of lovingly restored homes, and to escape the fray of the more touristic parts of town (but still live it up in grand style) head to Faubourg Marigny & Bywater.
