  • Older travelers

    We were delightfully surprised by the Bienville House Hotel. It was an enchanting hotel, with interesting decor, and a European ambiance. Our room overlooked the Mississippi River, with steam boats, and a lovely bridge. The small romantic pool added a special touch and was available 24/7. If you request particular room features, such as view or sunny location, staff is very accommodating in providing them. Choose the Bienville House Hote, and go enjoy all that New Orleans has to offer, from your doorstep!

    Not really. Some people might find the location of the elevator an inconvenience, if their room is located in one of the three adjacent buildings, which is not in the elevator building.

  • Older travelers

    Excellent location positioned right in the French Quarter and with a very pleasant ambiance that made our stay relaxed and special.

    Breakfast could have been better. More choice wouldhave been nice.

  • Older travelers

    The locality was perfect. The style and classic feel of the hotel added to our total experience of New Orleans. Felt like we were in another time & place. Service excellent & staff always helpful.

  • Older travelers

    Beautiful comfortable rooms. In the French Quarter but far enough away from the noise of the crowds, Short walk to all of the action!

  • Older travelers

    Really liked the quaintness of the hotel. Location was great and a fantastic staff.

    Did not like interior rooms, no windows and it stayed damp the entire weekend. Will definately upgrade to a balcony room next time.

  • Single

    The room was large and on the whole quiet. The pool area was lovely.

    The staff were not great (when I arrived they accused me of mis-pronouncing my own name) and the room was tired and looked dirty. There is only one lift and it is slow. The biggest problem was a large group had booked half the rooms in the hotel. This meant using the lift, pool or breakfast room was impossible if the group was there. This hotel is not set up for groups.

  • Group of friends

    Rooms very nice, location desirable for trips to French Quarter and rates reasonable for that area of New Orleans.

    Internet access is not free, and was less reliable than rates would dictate.

  • Group of friends

    Local was top notch next door to the best club in town, walking distance from the House of Blues, Bourbon Street, Restaurants and Shopping.

    Room and hallway had a molely smell, poor air condition, water backed up in bath tub. Housekeeping service poor, towels, linens, utensils flithy. Drapes old and dustly, allergy nightmare!!!

  • Single

    Location--in the French Quarter. Near the things you'd want to see and do there.

    Inside room, no windows. No warning that this would be the case. Crowded lobby, one clerk, front desk service slow.

  • Couple

    You could hear everytime someone walked down the hallway and above you

  • Older travelers

    Location is excellent as on fringe of French Quarter which puts you in a relatively quiet area with very easy access to any area of Quarter and relatively easy access to Hwy's for travel outside Quarter. Rooms are very comfortable and overall service is good.

  • Older travelers

    I thought the location was unbeatable. Within a short walking distance to Jackson Square and Burbon Street,the pool was a great plus although small it was beautiful set in the courtyard.

    We went down for breakfast at 9:00 am and I got the last box of cereal and the last yougart. My husband asked for one and they got him one but didn,t put anymor out even though breakfast was not finished and at least 20 people came down when we were there. They also ran out of milk and did not refill the orange juice, I thnik this let the hotel down badly.

  • Group of friends

    Location is perfect, everything you wanna see is right around the corner. Decatur street is great for live music and dinner, but without the typical tourist bars like on bourbon street. Very nice staff, very personal. Not only at the front desk but also at breakfast. This makes the hotel very special. The pool is small, but good enough for a dive after a day in the heat.

    nothing really, but make sure you have a room with a view. And don't get one too close to the airconditioning on the 2nd floor which makes a lot of noise.

  • Older travelers

    The room was very clean, quiet and comfortable.

    The room was not ready at check in which was after 3pm.

  • Couple

    Very nice room, very good location.

    Don't like it when I do not get WiFi included in the room rate.
