Spacious apartment, nice view over the city from the balcony,calm cause we had one of the rooms to the backyard.service was satisfying and the restaurant belonging to the hotel has the best Indian food we have ever tasted.I highly recommend it. The only thing is you need to walk for about 25 minutes to the French quarter and downtown district...

The hotel was in a convenient location, with everything I needed within walking distance. It was a safe area. Everyone that worked there was very friendly and helpful. It was easy to find and close to the French quarter. The room was a little small compared to modern buildings, but it was a great experience!

The neighborhood and vicinity to all the must experience areas of New Orleans is ideal. Everything is within a 20 minute walk. Silk Road, adjoining restaurant, is a nice bar and restaurant. Ganesh is a great and friendly chef. Overall we had a great experience. The house itself has a good classic feel to it, lots of character. If you're...

For a great price we got everything we needed. The entire building had so much charm we didn't want to leave. The food at the restaurant below was amazing with a great staff that made sure you were taken care of. We walked to the French Quarter with no issues and took us around 20 minutes one way.

We had 16 family members to house for an intimate ceremony. We stumbled upon Balcony Guesthouse and immediately fell in love. The owners and staff were amazing, the beds are unbelievably comfortable, and the location was convenient for everywhere we had to be. It made coming home to the bayou an amazing experience! I would go back in a heartbeat!

Terrific value and location. Attentive owners and staff. If you're an independent and adventurous traveler and can roll w/the occasional bump and enjoy it, this is definitely a place for you. It's the real thing...just like NOLA itself.

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.
