    My girlfriend and I stayed at this hotel on our first trip to New Orleans.  For the price, I don't think I could have asked for a better hotel.  

    The hotel is actually an old house that's been converted into a hotel.  There's a few rooms in the main building of the old house, and then additional rooms behind the main structure of the house in a two-stroy building.  The hotel itself is small and quaint.

    The service was incredibly friendly and great.  They have 24-hour securit and small parking lot for free parking.

    Our room, while on the smaller side of things, was comfortable and clean; which is basically all I'm looking for in a hotel room.

    As soon as I got back from our trip, I immediately sent hotel a letter informing them of our wonderful experience (something I had never done before).  I don't think our trip would have been as nice if we had stayed anywhere else.

    One note: Almost everything about the place (except the interior of the rooms and building) is pink.  Which makes it nice, as you'll never lose where your hotel is at. when you come back at night.

    Overall I like the guest house. The courtyard is filled with banana trees and koi fish, Lizards and cats. Very cool, very tropical. We stayed in room 5 I believe. It must be the sweetest room in the place. The room has a door that opens up to the  balcony. No fridge :( you can however get ice from the courtyard. Wifi is free and parking is limited. The keys must be left at the desk incase they need to move the car. No problems because you are in walking distance to everything worthwhile. It kills me to give 3 stars. Would rather 4 but my room def had bed bugs. I was there for 3 days and on my last morning i noticed all the red itchy misery congruent with bed bugs. That aside its a nice place to stay. Area isnt bad and it seems like there is always something to do.

    Had an excellent stay at guest house. This was my first time to NOLA and I felt so much character in this place. Art at every blink. It's cozy! The owners are awesome! Rooms are all different and that includes size and beds, so be sure to know your needs.

    I stayed here based on the reviews, I will return based on my own experience. The location is convenient: walking to distance to anything in the French Quarter you want to enjoy. The parking lot gets locked at night, a real plus on a busy time like New Year's Eve.  The proprietors are helpful and friendly, the rooms are lovely.

    The gentlemen who run the place, are warm, open, inviting, and generally concerned about your stay. The house and garden are quaint, beautifully pink, and well cared for.

    The rooms are clean, well taken care of... beds are really comfy. And depending on the location of your room, it is pretty quiet.

    24 hour concierge service.
    The parking area, though small, and a bit like playing Tetris... is locked every night, to keep your valuables safe.

    The continental breakfast, mentioned in an above review... was not lacking, even though some of the fruit is obviously canned... hey, its New Orleans... who cares??! One of the proprietors serves it to you as you sit inside the small garden room, or on the beautiful patio.

    The house is non-smoking, but smoking is permitted on the patio.

    There is a small fridge outside by patio area, where one could store drinks and alcohol.

    During my stay, there was an eclectic mix of people: everyone from a young family with a small child, to other younger and older couples. Everyone I encountered was super friendly and always said good morning, etc. The place just has an awesome vibe, very positive and happy.

    I will absolutely be staying there again, on my trips back to New Orleans.

    One more thing, its only about a 5 minute walk to Bourbon, if thats your thing. And like a ten minute drive to Magazine St.

    My only recomendation... book early, because this place fills up fast.

    We had a very good time at the NOGH.... I try to make reservations here everytime I go to NOLA but they are always booked... shame, shame..... They are in a great location that's very close to The French Quarter and Bourbon St. The service was great and very friendly and help us with local history and directions. Yes, we will stay there again if we can get a room.

    Holy shit, if i could live here i would. I've stayed at cheap ass airport hotels, 5 star Hollywood hotels and a lot of places in between, and i can say that this was the absolute BEST accommodation i have stayed at on any vacation, period. The staff are so friendly, the building is absolutely gorgeous, and the character of the place is incredible. Why stay at a boring hotel that looks the same as it would in any other city when you can stay in an old building with lots of New Orleans character?

    The location is perfect- just cross the street and you're in the French Quarter!- and it's also close to the quieter side of the FQ with a lot of restaurants locals go to. It's also a quick walk to Cemetery No.1 if you want to do some sight seeing!

    The continental breakfast was suuuuper delish too! Fruit, a fresh croissant and all the juice and coffee you can drink! I was really glad it was a lighter breakfast because of all the greasy food my bf and me would inevitably eat later in the day!

    On the second day of our visit, my bf and me said 'the only thing this place is missing is a cat!' .... And a few hours later we met the two kitties who live there! Stella and Stanley are their names! Stanley was a little shy, but Stella was pretty friendly! It was so nice having them around!!

    So to sum it up, if i'm ever filthy rich, i'm just going to become a permanent resident of this B&B. I miss it so much already!

    I visited some family that was staying here one evening. Nice little place with a gentle old man working the front that greeted our drunk a**e* with a nervous smile and a barely audible whisper. Turens out the walls are paper thin.

    The decore of the place is very nice and is somewhere where I wouldn't mind staying. From the google earth street view it doesnt look like anywhere where I would want to go but turns out it is pretty ok!

    Yes it's the big house on the street--at least you won't miss it when you're coming home drunk!
    We stayed here for 4 nights and had pretty good experience overall.

    The Pros:
    Great location--10 min walk to the French Quarter, close to the highway, and right down the street from the great restaurants on Esplanade Avenue. Very quite and peaceful
    Friendly owners and 24 hr person in the front
    Safe & locked overnight parking & wireless internet included in rate
    Clean room, big bathroom
    Very cute cats on premise--reminded me of my house =)
    Reasonable prices for the close proximity to the FQ.

    The Cons:
    The breakfast was juice, coffee, and a croissant served with fruit--some of which was canned  =( Booo on canned fruit  and I'm used to much better breakfasts at B&B's so it was a bit disappointing.
    The bed was not the most comfortable-- it might be on its last leg.
    No fridge in the rooms which was inconvenient

    Book directly through the hotel and you'll get the same price as on expedia.com . Overall a good price for a great location.

    We were placed here after having booked a room at the Historic Street Car Inn on St. Charles.  We booked through Hotel Tonight and they confirmed that we had a reservation at the Historic Street Car Inn.  Obviously, someone came there and was willing to pay more money and we were bumped.  The same people own the New Orleans Guest House, so they acted like they had done me a favor by putting us there.  It was a DUMP!  The room was not level.  The headboard of the bed was about three inches lower than the foot of the bed.  It smelled awful.  The bathroom was old and dingy.  They told us they served breakfast-outside.  They already had the dishes set out for the next day and there were cats roaming everywhere.  Cigarette butts all over the ground, dirty ash trays outside at the tables.  Garden area was overgrown and not kept up.  The place was just plain nasty.  We did not stay there.  Called Hotels tonight, they were shocked that we had been bumped..it is not supposed to happen. Hotel Tonight was fantastic.  Finding us another hotel-The Hotel Modern-which was very nice!

    Stayed here for two nights and had a great time. Super funky with very pleasant staff. Philip was very helpful with things to go and do. He also got us a great rate! I highly suggest this place to anyone visiting New Orleans. So much personality to it!!

    This place features a friendly staff and a clean room. That's where the good ends (but those are the essentials).

    - WiFi didn't reach our room. That sucks and is easy to fix.

    - black mold spot in our bathroom. It had been painted / cleaned before, but was prominent

    - Dirty courtyard. It needed some love. Stuff everywhere, plants needed trimming / tending. It just felt unkept.

    - $20/night parking. Seriously?

    We would probably explore other options when returning to New Orleans, but this got the job done and was in a good location.

    I am vacillating between 3 and 4 stars.

    I enjoyed this guest house even though it was pretty funky. The room itself wasn't very big and it was actually kind of crooked (bed was slanted, bathroom door didn't fully close) and the first few days, our room wasn't cleaned because the (obviously new) housekeeper came too early the first morning and then misunderstood us the next day when we said we didn't need extra towels. But everyone was friendly and helpful, it was affordable, and it was in a great location, within walking distance to the French Quarter, the Tremé, Marigny (Frenchmen Street), and Louis Armstrong Park. And very convenient by bus if you are on a budget and feeling adventurous. I wouldn't write home about the continental breakfast - mainly packaged foods - but the little courtyard patio setting was lush and charming and the resident kitties are cute and friendly.

    It was perfect because we didn't spend a lot of time in the room and the hotel's bright pink exterior was a welcome beacon on our stumbles home. I would recommend it if you are ok with low-frills accommodations but wanted some New Orleans character.

    I've never stayed at a B&B before, so for a first timer and in New Orleans, it was Perfect! The manager was so nice and helpful!! He helped us with our bags up the stairs and was very friendly. The rooms are so unique. My room was red, with cool, artsy decor, and it was very clean. There was a cool little patio on top. You feel very relaxed and at home in a sense.
    + Staff, Location, Parking in good very close distance of Bourbon St., Heater in shower, Outside sitting area, internet
    - Small parking lot, no refrigerator, saw a big spider in the room xP, only a few outlets for charger and etc.

    But overall really great experience!! It's so close that if you take a taxi ride back from Bourbon or Frenchmen St. It's at the most 7$.
    Goodluck!

    About as romantic a little place as you could hope to expect.  

    Even if you're on your own, it would still be romantic.  It's a lovely little pink building just 2-3 blocks away from Bourbon Street.  Gated parking, a nice little patio area in back where breakfast is served (which is perfect for either writing or just enjoying the ambiance), wonderful, very helpful staff that helps you to navigate more "local" New Orleans, and just immaculate and charming.  

    The place is full of personality.  Very artsy with great decor.  The bedrooms are just wonderful.  I love the location: Just enough away from the craziness, but a pleasant walk to and from.  It's right next to Louis Armstrong Park.

    We only stayed one night, but I loved the location, the Bohemian charm, and the wonderful and friendly staff.  Next time I find myself in New Orleans, they will definitely have my business again.

    I love finding funky, yet chic, and beautiful places to stay when I'm on the road. I tried to find such on a quick recent trip through NOLA. I had little time to research and I did not want to pay an arm and a leg for this stay.
    I found this cute little pink house online and booked, here is what I found to be note worthy of this little abode.
    The House-
    Its not classic NOLA French Quarter, though it sits in this area, the exterior is deceiving. It looks simply like a pink house, nothing special. Once you walk in you find yourself in a beautiful living room converted into a front desk area. The walls are adorn with antique pictures of ladies in pompadour up do's and 18th century garb, and you instantly feel like you have stepped back in time.
    The staircase is grand yet narrow and the rooms are decorated with thought and care. My room had an old iron fireplace built into the wall, and my in-laws had a beautiful claw foot tub.
    I had a small balcony, though it was a bit old and shaky, and obviously needed some worked done so I didn't dare step out on to it. The hallways looked as though they had the original chandeliers and light fixtures and these definitely adds character, mystique and beauty to the place.

    The Garden-
    Its beautiful, but needs more care and work. There are 1980's glass tables on the weathered porch where you can help yourself to a buffet style breakfast. I think maybe these tables are not the right style for this outdoor area. The tables are a bit too close together, which made me a bit nervous for the children walking around and helping themselves to juice and breakfast breads.
    A gentleman was busy tidying up the banana trees, but there were leaves and decaying plant life here and there. I'm usually okay with this natural type setting, but since this area is narrow and small, its best to have the walkway clean and clear for safety reasons.

    Breakfast-
    Is complimentary but could use some love, as well as the serving area.

    Juice, Coffee, Tea
    Yogurt, Croissants, toast and cereal

    Concierge/Front Desk-
    SO HELPFUL, kind, and accommodating! These guys know what customer service is! I wish I could remember the name of the gentleman who helped us check in, but he was very helpful, let us check in early since the rooms were available already. He also gave us great walking directions, a brief history of the area, just a great personable front desk agent. Kudos to the staff.

    I didn't give 5 stars only because of the outdoor breakfast area.  I'm sure its a work in progress though.

    This place is clean, beautiful, and accommodating. Take a look and be pleasantly surprised.
