“Very nice stay.”
Reviewed 27 May 2013

B and B's are about the experience, and ours was a very positive one I must say.
House is convenient to the FQ, and well maintained. Host Carl was friendly enough.
Had use of a kitchen - with fridge, sink, coffee maker, etc.
Access to bikes, and a hot tub (we used neither actually).
Biggest plus was the FREE PARKING for 5 nights.
Room was OK - it's an old house, so don't expect the MGM Grand here. Could have used a woman's touch I think - ya know, to maybe change the shower curtains when they start to turn a yellowish hue...
Only downer was the breakfast. Would it kill the new gen of B and Ber's to scramble a few eggs once in a while??? Bunch of cereal, white bread bagels, and packaged croissants we could nuke.
Anyway, enjoyed the stay overall.

Room Tip: Try not to get the room off the kitchen. Although folks aren't supposed to eat until 9am, they...

The Burgundy is in a quiet neighborhood, but still just a short walk from the music of Frenchman Street and a little farther (about 20 minutes) from the heart of the French Quarter. The rooms were neat and clean, the beds comfortable. Carl, the innkeeper, was fantastic. He never tired of my questions about the area and was always on the mark with his dining/sightseeing suggestions. He also makes the best cup of chicory coffee I had while in town!

Room Tip: Green room is further away from the breakfast room if you're a late sleeper. The Blue Room is t...

Spent 4 wonderful days in the month of March on Spring Break with the hubby and son. The Burgundy was a fabulous place to stay. It felt like home and Carl was the perfect innkeeper. He gave us advice on where to go, eat, shop, tour, etc. The other guest were enjoyable to talk to during breakfast and they, too, gave advice. The breakfast Carl provided was great. We also, stored food in the freezer (you definitely can't do that at a hotel). We left our car parked on the street without any worries. We enjoyed the walk from The Burgundy to the French Quarter. The neighborhood was pleasant and safe (no worries). We have returned home and already we miss New Orleans and Carl hospitality. When we return to New Orleans, we will definitely stay at The Burgundy Bed and Breakfast. Thanks Carl, for the wonderful memories....smooches!!

Room Tip: We enjoyed the Green Room...queen bed and day bed....shower...loved it

Spent a few days here in October - returned this time for a week - had another great stay here - the last time i was so busy running around daft, with all the tours that i'd booked in advance, that i seldom spent much time at the Burgundy...this time, i was able to relax and pace myself...so i enjoyed breakfast, speaking with other residents, now new friends, and Carl - what a font of knowledge about his beloved NOLA and lovely gentleman to boot...he assisted me in booking a swamp tour and plantation tour...and gave advice about the best happy hours around town...

Regarding all the criticism about the non-cooked breakfast - it is ILLEGAL for bed and breakfasts to offer cooked breakfast, according to local laws...each morning, i enjoyed a toasted muffin with butter, fresh cantaloupe, pineapple and strawberries, fresh orange juice and fresh coffee...also available were bagels, bread, jams, bananas, grapes, cereal, tea...i was happily full but not over-stuffed...

Already thinking about my return trip - see my earlier review for full details on the property itself...

Room Tip: the coral room is perfect for a single or a loving couple...

Great B & B in the cute neighborhood of Marigny. You will do alot of walking to where all the action is. But no big deal. We felt safe the whole time.
Carl will help you with whatever your needs are. We stayed in the red room and would recommend because of having its own entrance off the patio.

I stayed at the Burgundy this weekend, on my third visit to NOLA this time with my parents. In my last two visits I stayed at another B&B in Marigny and I liked the neighborhood as it is very close to the Frenchmen Street and within the walking distance from the French Quarter. I wanted to try a different place and gave it a try at the Burgundy and I was satisfied. The Burgundy is in the safer residential area, and I felt safe leaving my car parked by the streets and walking back home at night. Carl was very informative and thanks to his advice we were able to enjoy the Mardi Gras parade in the best spot and attend the gospel mass at theTreme neighborhood. Moreover anything, we enjoyed our conversations with Carl during breakfast. Learning about New Orlean's history and sharing our life stories was a unique experience we got to have staying at the Burgundy. King cake, assorted muffins & bagles, fresh fruit and boiled eggs were a good start to the day as well. If you are like me and value good location, safety and cultural experience in choosing your lodging, consider staying at Burgundy. (PS: Carl is a retired professor from Germany, so if German is easier than English for you you could consider this as well.)

We really enjoyed our stay here and found it a friendly, well run and well organized B&B. The host, Carl, was born and raised in New Orleans and knows the city well. He’s a fount of help and accommodating the various needs of the traveler. The rooms are comfortable and homey with all sorts of conveniences for the tourist. There is always fresh fruit, coffee and tea ready for a weary tourist. The price was certainly fair.

The proprietor is a retired university professor who enjoys providing this kind of service for tourists. Internet services, TV and countless DVD discs are available for your enjoyment. Parking is easy for a city experience and an easy walk to Frenchmens Street (where locals go to hear wonderful jazz). It’s a 20 minute walk into the French Quarter- we certainly enjoyed the exercise.

This a gay-friendly B&B and my wife and I never felt unwelcome here because we were not gay. It never came up in conversation as there were much more important things to discuss with the owner.
