“Unique, Great Character and Great Staff”
Reviewed 1 March 2012

My husband and I went to NO in January for a little get away. It's about an 8-10 minute walk from the French Quarter. Not bad at all. We felt safe walking the ENTIRE time. Even all the way from Bourbon St. late at night. The room was basic. Just what we needed. A bed, internet access, a small bathroom, and t.v. We could walk out onto the balcony right from our room. The place itself is SO neat. It's a convenient store/ laundry mat/b&b/bar/Indian and American Restaurant. We ate there twice for dinner. The Po Boy and the Indian dish we tried were both REALLY good. The cooked breakfast was great! They have great happy hour specials on their beer-- $2 for whatever kind your heart desires, and there are a lot to choose from. The staff behind the bar was SO nice, and extremely helpful in pointing us in the right direction for anything and everything. If you hang out at the bar around dinner, the locals are all nice, and very happy to converse. It wasn't anything fancy, but it had great character, and we loved being in the neighborhood and amongst all the locals. When we go back we're staying here. 3 days wasn't long enough!

Room Tip: Go to their website, and it will tell you which rooms have balcony access. THAT would be the room I...

We stayed here during Mardi Gras week and were so pleased with our choice. They didn't price gouge us and even included a delicous breakfast each morning. Upon arrival, we were offered a free cocktail of our choice and Chuck took our bag to our room. We weren't going to New Orleans to sit in our room so it was fine that the room was small. Although it was small the bed was comfy and the balcony area was beautiful. I would definitely stay at the Balcony Guest House again because of the awesome neighborhood, hospitality, and great food at Schiro's.

This place has ALOT of character and if you are looking for a true New Orleans experience you will like this place. The location is safe but far from the sites, get a trolley day pass. Breakfast isn't served till 9:30 - 10:00, we are early risers so this didn't work for us. Not very clean or private and you will smell the restaurant downstairs the whole time. But if you want that gritty NOLA experience...here is the place for you.

Room Tip: Front balcony room seems like a good idea but it's not a private balcony and the drapes offer NO...

My daughter & I stayed there August/September 2011. Great hosts, the restaurant etc is very convenient and the food was good. Priced reasonably & walking distance to the French Quarter etc. Plan on staying there again.

My cousins and I stayed here in 2010 for the Essence Music Festival. Parking is free, so that was a definite plus. At the time, we were given free drinks and breakfast. The rooms are above a restaurant/corner store. The shrimp po'boys and hamburgers were absolutely delicious. We stayed in a suite, which was spacious. The bathroom was extremely small, but the bedroom was decent in size, especially with the pull out couch as an option. You could sometimes hear the entire conversation of the people in the next room.
