Beautiful room. Scrumptious breakfast. Even had a chocolate covered strawberry on my pillow at bed time. Easy access to delightful guests staying there, and as easy to be completely private when I wanted to be.

I stay in bed and breakfast places often. This is the best I have encountered.

For the price, this place is a good deal. We paid a little over $100 for a large room with a great bathroom. Fantastic price in N'Awlins especially during a busy time in the city.

Pros: large room, marble bathroom with a jaccuzzi, great dog!, nice owners. In fact, the house itself could not be better. It was very quite too.

Cons: For me at least, an out-of-the-way location in a strange neighborhood. We also encountered friendly but somewhat inconsistent housekeeping. Great one day, didn't get any the next day! As others have said, you have to rely on the public trolley ("streetcar") which can be packed with rowdy schoolchildren and very slow at times. This was very irritating! Not the fault of the bed and breakfast people, of course, but something travelers should heed.

As you can see by other reviews this B&B has its fans and I, too, would probably return. Oh, and eat at Juan's Flying Burritto. Yummy!

Brad and Larry have out done themselves with 1896 O'Malley House. This beautifully restored home with friendly and accomodating hosts offers a wide range of amenities and reasonable prices. It should be on the list of "must see" attractions. We'd definately stay there again.

No question, the best place to stay in New Orleans. Brad and Larry do a wonderful job at making you comfortable and suggesting restaurants and places to see. Their Bed and Breakfast is so clean, quiet and well decorated. Breakfast is scrumptious and I couldn't eat all that was offered! The convenience to the Canal Street Streetcar is a huge plus also. It was so comfortable to come home and enjoy a glass of wine and relax in the living room at the end of a busy day. I wish Brad and Larry continued success and when we return to New Orleans, we will only stay there.

We found the OMalley House on TripAdviser and found our room to be very nice. We loved Codey the dog, too. Such a sweetheart. We enjoyed the wonderful breakfast conversation as well as the food itself but found our room to be a little loud. In fact, the room #2 has a built-in alarm clock in that it's just above the main breakfast area and if you're a late sleeper, too bad! (We could even here conversation from downstairs).

Mixed emotions about the Canal trolley. It can be a lot of fun or a real pain in the --- when you are trying to get somewhere within 30 minutes!

Overall, the house still gets a solid above average rating from us. Kudos.

Our family had the opportunity to stay at The O'Malley House for 4 nights at Thanksgiving. All four rooms were fantastic. The mid-town location is convenient to anywhere in the city.

I can't say enough about the hospitality. Brad and Larry have provided an elegant yet comfortable setting. The beds are very comfortable and the rooms have everything you need. The breakfasts are a great way to start the day.

We will be taking advantage of their hospitality again. I would not hesitate to recommend The O'Malley house to anyone that is considering a visit to New Orleans.
