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!
