The place was very nice and close to everything. We did have a minor issue, the air conditioning stopped working. The matter was resolved but aside from that we would definitely recommend Stay Alfred to our friends.
We booked this establishment in March 2017 for a stay in March 2018. In September 2017 we started to receive DAILY calls and emails telling us we needed to re-book as they were overbooked. After speaking to them we found out that they were NOT over booked but wanted me to pay double the reserved and confirmed price as they realized their pricing was not what they realized they could charge. NOT MY PROBLEM. They refused to honor my reservation and finally after 2 weeks of back and forth I gave, I cancelled and will NEVER use them, booking.com or Stay Alfred again. Unacceptable practices and the worst experience I have had in over 20 years of traveling. Very unfortunate as it looked like a great place, we go to NOLA every year at this time, our money will happily go elsewhere now.
We stayed at the Carondelet condo at Gallier Court for the second weekend of Jazzfest. It was very clean, had a great kitchen and in-unit laundry which was convenient. The bedrooms were nice size with good mattresses and nice bathrooms. The location was great, 1 block off Canal, 24 hour restaurant next door. The Stay Alford staff was very responsive to a couple of minor repairs and that was appreciated. The only drawbacks were: only 1 entry key which was a minor hassle and the street noise (street car comes down Carondelet, street preachers with megaphones, etc), but you have to expect some of that in New Orleans. Overall, great experience.
The only negative, which by the way is also a positive, is on the street of a rail car, which makes it noisy, and a light sleeper may have a tough time. The other bedroom is farther back and not quite as bad. But this also makes it great for transportation. Two couples came for a long weekend, and I will come with girlfriends due to safety and convenience. Will definitely stay here again!!
Perfect location! Bedroom closest to Carondelet is kinda loud, but who goes to NOLA to sleep? We WILL stay there again...soon!
The location of the apartment could not have been more perfect for our family of four. Literally 3 blocks from the heart of Bourbon Street, with all the essentials within walking distance. It was nice to be able to leave the craziness of Bourbon Street at the end of the evening and head "home" to relax and catch up. The apartment is well furnished and provided just enough room for my husband, and two kids (teenager and young adult) to have our own space during our down time. The apartment was clean and nicely decorated. The beds were very comfortable.
A high spec, fabulous property but please cut ANOTHER apartment key - it was a real pain having to use the lock-box for 6 days!
More bath towels and tea towels needed - don’t be stingy I paid a lot to stay here.
The front bedroom is very very difficult to sleep in as those trolleys sure do make some noise!
