Wonderful B&B with great hosts. Situated in an historic neighborhood within walking distance of some terrific restaurants and pubs that are far enough from the French Quarter . You can walk the streets at night and it’s very safe. Exactly what we were looking for....More

Thanks for the wonderful review! Hope it doesn't take as many years before you get back to New Orleans again!
My first time staying in a B&B and it was an excellent experience. Safe, quiet neighborhood. Walking distance to the free ferry to the French Quarter. Healthy breakfast every morning at 8am. Kevin was accommodating, helpful, and shared some great tips and stories. It was...More

Many thanks for a great review. Hope to see you soon.
My wife and I just finished our second stay and loved it both times. The rooms are very nice and comfortable, the breakfasts good and the company, especially Boudin, incomparable. We love walking around the neighborhood and then taking the free ferry over to the...More

Thanks for a great review and we look forward to a third visit.
This was our first trip to New Orleans. When you first find out the Bed and Breakfast is across the Mississippi from the French Quarter, you may be reluctant. Need not fear. The Free Ferry that crosses over is only 3 blocks away from the...More

Thank you so much for the great review. We look forward to seeing you back in the Big Easy some time soon!
The House of the Rising Sun B&B is truly a New Orleans hidden gem. While in NOLA for a national conference (4 nights), I chose this quiet, charming hideaway instead of the host Brand Name Big Hotel. I have no regrets. I found that the...More

Thanks for the great review. Look forward to seeing you next time.
Sitting pretty across the Mississippi River from the rambunctious French Quarter, the Crescent City’s second oldest neighborhood is as historic and as scenic as any – just a lot less showy about it. With its numerous 19th and early 20th century homes and plentiful parks and riverside green space for cycling and walking, subdued and low key Algiers yields the best views of New Orleans and offers a quiet haven
from the hustle and bustle in other parts of town. Most of the area’s activity, for visitors anyway, takes place at Algiers Point where the famous Canal Street / Algiers Ferry has been the main attraction since 1827 and is still giving folks one of the best rides in town at very affordable rates. Restaurants, bars and music venues here all but guarantee the utmost of authentic experiences sans any hype or high prices.
