“hands-off (b&b lite)”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 February 2012

this is not the place for someone looking for a traditional b&b. that being said, it was fine for what we needed, which was a quiet place to stay and a decent location if you're not looking to patrol the quarter for your whole trip. breakfast is self-serve in the single-room guesthouse. nothing fancy... cereals, breakfast bars, etc. instead walk down the street to the little cake shop for a great breakfast. they've also raised the price over the last couple years, so it's not the great deal it once was.

This is a beautiful place. It's a separate guest house, with it's own entrance so very private. The first floor has a kitchen/dining/living room area and the upstairs two nice sized bedrooms and bathroom. One bedroom has a door. The decor was perfect for this old home, and very comfortable. All amenities you need are here plus. Milk, coffee, breakfast items and all sorts of things you might need for bath are provided.
The courtyard was one of my favorite spot, a little oasis full of greenery and flowers, which was so nice as we'd just come from the brown, cold north.

The French Quarter and the French Market are an easy walk. It's close to the "action" but far enough away for plenty of peace and quiet. Stephen was so very helpful, telling us about parade routes, and places for coffee, etc. Every guidebook you could want was in the rental, plus brochures on many other trips. There was even a 2012 Mardi Gras guide!

This was perfect for our family of four. I would highly recommend staying here if heading to New Orleans. Hope to return to NOLA soon, and hope to stay here again. It's so much nicer than a bland, over-priced hotel room.

While staying in Gulf Shores, AL we decided to head over to New Orleans for a night and stayed at the Pierre Coulon Guest House. The location was great, the guest house was very clean, beautiful, and was filled with more amenities than I would ever need. Stephen was extremely helpful with navigating New Orleans, finding great places to eat, and making us feel welcome. Easily one of the best experiences I have had at a bed and breakfast! Thanks again.

After staying here for two weeks, my wife and I will never stay anywhere else in New Orleans. It's not a hotel room, it's your own private house. It has a private entrance, living room with small kitchen area and a spacious bedroom upstairs with a firm mattress on the bed and a nice clean bathroom. It's about a 10 min. walk to some of the best clubs and restaurants on Frenchmen St., and one block away from an amazing breakfast spot(Cake bakery cafe). It's also very quiet. The owners, Stephen and Rich, are extremely friendly and helpful and made us feel at home. After walking all over the city we decided our favorite neighborhood was the Marigny. I can't recommend this place highly enough.

It was perfect. Separate from the main house with its own entrance, front outdoor patio and French windows. The guest house is a part of history and makes you feel at home. It has 2 floors. The bottom floor being the kitchen and living room opening into the paved patio. The upstair is an artist loft with a beautiful bedroom and bathroom. The bedroom has French doors leading to a balcony facing the charming yard. The owners Steven and Rich are very friendly and always willing to give you the best tips for restaurants, bars, attractions,etc. The house is located in the Marigny, a 10 minutes walk from the French Quarter. We had the best of times.
