“I love everything about this place... Everything.”
Reviewed 8 September 2011

The location is amazing-- the Marigny neighborhood is beautiful, and close but still removed from the bustling French quarter. I got a very "local" feeling, staying here.
The staff is also amazing-- everything is low-key, and everyone is friendly and willing to help (with directions, for instance) or just shoot the breeze.
The room we stayed in was furnished nicely and pretty clean. The balcony is a must-use: I sat there and read my travel books in the morning, and looked down the street towards Mimi's bar at night.
Schiro's restaurant is a great place to hang out-- delicious breakfast is cooked personally for each guest each morning, COMPLIMENTARY!, and drinks at night are tasty and fun.
I've been recommending Balcony Guest House to all my friends and I'd love to return soon!

My partner and I used to live very close to here. It was our 1st trip back to New Orleans since Katrina. The room was nice and clean...very comfortable. The staff was attentive and so nice. The breakfast was a real plus and made to order. Having access to the balcony over looking Royal St. was so nice. Several nite we chose to stay in and get a couple bottles of wine ( great selection down stairs) and just relax. We had such a nice vist, and plan to return to the city we so loved a little more often. When we do, this where we will stay.

This was our first trip to NOLA and what a memorable trip it was. We pulled up early in the afternoon and were checked in right away. Were shown to our rooms, rested for a few minutes then made our way downstairs for a refreshing beverage. Located in a nice, quiet part of town with good access to many of NOLA's attractions. We will return and this will definitely be our choise of places to stay.

This last trip to Balcony Guest House in April 2011 was for the Crescent City Classic Race. What a fabulous time we had participating in the race and hanging out at the Balcony Guest House in the Marigny. We frequently stay there; the owners and staff are very pleasant and make sure you have all you need. And the Indian food is a very pleasant surprise and highly recommended. Just park your car and walk where ever you need to go, it's close to many restaurants and bars in the Marigny and a short walk to the Quarter. Perfect!

Room Tip: Choose one of the rooms with direct access to the balcony.

I went there for a long weekend to discover New Orleans. The location is ideal as it's not in the French Quarters but closeby, very close to Frenchmen street (best place for jazz music to me). The place is not big but clean and cosy, and the owner makes you feel at home. And it's totally affordable. I certainly recommend this place !
