We recently stayed four nights at the Balcony Guest House. It's located above a deli-restaurant-bar-laundramat about 3 blocks from Frenchmen's Street. Being an older couple, we preferred Frenchmen's to Bourbon St so the location was perfect for us. It's in an older building on the second floor with small rooms and small updated bathrooms. A large balcony and small interior lounge added the NOLA amibiance to our experience. A full breakfast started each morning, served by a very friendly staff. The deli sold everything from candy to wine and if you wanted a beer, the bar was right there.
Some negatives: The neighborhood seemed a little seedy (but safe) until you walk it and see how much they are fixing it up. We never really saw the B & B staff and they didn't service our room on any of the 4 days. This wasn't a problem for us because the only thing I prefer is a made bed so I made it. We weren't in the room except to sleep. Room was clean but old with shampoo and soap. Overall, we had a fairly good experience and it seems to be a good, quiet value for the money especially with breakfast.
