Been to New Orleans a few times but always missed out before on Algiers Point. It is a little oasis of calm, just a ferry ride from the bustle of the rest of the city; this B&B is a lovely base from which to experience it. Kevin, Wendy & Boudin are exemplary hosts: we had been there almost five minutes... More

Grateful are we to experience this wonderful B & B located in a fanciful neighborhood adjacent to the captivating city of New Orleans. The House of the Rising Sun proved to be so much more than a base-camp as we set out on our 12 to 14 hour activity-filled days. Awakening to the aroma of fresh brewed coffee and recognizing... More

What's not to like? Wendy and Kevin shared their lovely home with us. We had a beautiful comfortable room, the rest of house was beautifully decorated with lots of interesting pieces to admire! We were pleasantly surprised at the ease of using the ferry to the French quarter, just about 5 minutes walk from the b&b and another 5 minutes... More

Many thanks to Kevin, Wendy, and Boudin for another terrific stay at the House of Rising Sun B &B! Kevin and Wendy are the most gracious hosts. ‘Wonder dog’ Boudin is a sweetheart.

If you are looking for: - a very nice, perfectly well kept place; and - a lovely, safe and absolutely quiet district (no mass tourism around but a local pub and cafes); and - a chance to get valuable information about the city from locals; and - an easy and quick access to the very center of New Orleans (just...

Kevo was a welcoming host and more so with a cold brew. This BnB offers a nutritious and generous brekkie, cool comfort in private quarters as well as great conversation. Its a wonderful neighbourhood with an interesting history as we learned from our local tour. Quiet and yet convenient to New Orleans central districts just across the river.

To start with, this was my third stay at House of the Rising Sun Bed and Breakfast. I still do not think there is any better place to stay in when you visit NOLA.

Staying in Algiers

Neighbourhood Profile
Algiers
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.
