Balcony Guest House

Rated 7.9 in 504 reviews. 13 rooms.

Just outside of the French Quarter, the Balcony Guest House has been an “only in New Orleans” landmark, and center of neighborhood activity for over 100 years. It began as a corner grocery – a fixture in New Orleans neighborhoods from a time gone by. In true turn-of-the-century fashion, the owners lived upstairs. The Balcony Guest House now occupies this space. These 6 beautiful suites above are a hidden luxury within our family owned B&B. Wake up to the sights and sounds of old New Orleans with Balcony Guest House's beautiful and large wrap around gallery balcony. In the springtime, you'll often wake to the smell of magnolias and wild jasmine. During Mardi Gras, you'll have a front row view of the floats as 5 parades pass directly in front of the property. Our balcony in the heart of the Marigny neighborhood is the perfect place to sit back with your cup of coffee, take in the sights of the city, and truly experience what it means to live like a local. Each unit boasts a private en-suite bathroom, microwave, mini fridge, iron, blow dryer, toiletries, and linens, we have everything you need to make yourself right at home. Some rooms have direct access to the large shared balcony and other rooms have their very own private balcony as well.
