Even though the reviews were mixed of the Palace, we decided to try this place because we like old and charming, and the location seemed great. We used to live in New Orleans so wanted a quirky old world experience. We have both traveled around the world and can stay in simple places, and as long as they are clean, we are content. After checking in here and trying to make it work, we chose not to stay here. I am choosing not to go into details because I don't want to hurt feelings, but the room was very dirty, the bed was dirty, and the bathroom needed to be cleaned from previous guests.
The room feels unsafe. There are old wires hanging out of outlets, the smoke alarm was disabled and in the closet, and other electrical items were rigged up in strange ways. We could have stayed it if was just funky and quirky, but dirty and unsafe didn't feel like a good way to start our vacation. On the positive, this guest house has a lot of potential and the location is very central.
