Quiet (for New Orleans) neighborhood guesthouse with plentiful street parking. Nice breakfast included with DECENT coffee! Inn keeper is the best. Room included a small fridge and microwave. Tastefully appointed with antiques but a thoroughly modern and comfortable bed.

Great neighbourhood spot, half hour or less walk to the busiest parts of the French quarter, has nice bars nearby like mimis on the corner. Room was adequate but light switches difficult to reach and could not draw the blinds on one window so the room was quite bright (also at night from the streetlights). Fairly quiet street but when...

Excellent spot to stay! great location, staff is outstanding from owner Zak and Chef "G to their staff. Silk Road excellent food, and reasonable prices. 20 mins walk to the French Quarter, but a fast 20 mins, lots to see and do while you make your way to Bourbon St. I would certainly stay there again.

We LOVED Balcony Guest house. My husband and I stayed in Room 9. It had a dining table and full kitchen (no pots/pans though) . It wasn't huge, but big enough - it wasn't too fancy, but nice enough. The bed was comfortable and we had access to a back patio. All of the people, from our Bartender/house keeper, Michelle,...

Great location. The dinner here was amazing to say the least. Zak was the perfect host. We will only stay here in when visiting NOLA. We have had nothing but a great experience when staying here. Thank you Zak for your hospitality.

Stuffs in the guest house were extremely friendly and helpful, they arranged me late check-in and early check-out without any hustle. The neighborhood is safe, quite and appearing. 20 min nice and easy walk to the French quarter of New Orleans, where you find all interesting day and night activities.

Stayed here for 3nights. Our room was not the biggest, but it was clean enough. Felt save to stay here. Breakfast was surprisingly good and the owner is such a fun guy to talk to. He let us use his laundry facilities after we came soaking wet back from our day, without any problem. Location is great. You can walk...

Charming old, refurbished house with a cozy room with bath, kitchen and bedroom. Located close to the French Quarter on a quiet street in F. Marigny neighborhood. Cleaners were attentive and asked, if we needed anything for our room. Breakfast was served in the nearby restaurant, called Silk Road, we ate there once on our 4 day stay, and it...

Staying in Faubourg Marigny & Bywater

Neighbourhood Profile
Faubourg Marigny & Bywater
Nestled between the French Quarter and the Ninth Ward, the Faubourg Marigny & Bywater environs are largely residential. Of course, folks around here love to go out and have a good time as much as they do anywhere in NOLA. And if out-of-towners want to join in the festivities, well then so much the better! Home to some of the most revered live music venues in New Orleans, an eclectic gaggle of gourmand dining destinations, and a come-as-you-are vibe that’s as infectious as it is alluring, this is real deal New Orleans oozing with southern hospitality and the promise of a most epic night out. For endless opportunities to boogie, to admire row upon row of lovingly restored homes, and to escape the fray of the more touristic parts of town (but still live it up in grand style) head to Faubourg Marigny & Bywater.
