Perfectly located near the the French Quarter yet apart and distinct. Walk or use our bicycles in and out of town or just relax in the peaceful garden and patio with a book or use the WiFi access by the swimming pool. Complimentary Cheese and wine each evening.

Easter in New Orleans

4.6 on April 11, 2015

We had a great weekend. This is the fifth B&B we have stated at in NOLA, and the best so far. The room was small, but who cares. The pool area was very nice and the conversations with the other guests was great.

great place to stay, within walking distance to everything.

The only disagreeable thing was the smell of dog in the kitchen. I think Ed's dog likes to mark the kitchen. Other than that it it a great place to stay.

A nice stay

A small room but clean and where you feel good. A wonderfull courtyard full of water and vegetation, really nice for breakfast outside. The guest doesn't speak a lot but in the other hand it's areally quiet place. Would come back there for sure!

Pleasant experience

This place certainly has a lot of charm! From its safe location to the rooms, the comfort, and especially the owner's hospitality, is admirable. It was my first time in New Orleans and the stay definitely made it more unique. Lion's Inn is in good proximity to the French Quarter and Jackson Square. A lot of good eating places there, and of course fab music. My friend and I mostly walked to places, we only needed public transport to visit the swamp and to go to the Museum of Art. I would recommend this B&B to anyone travelling to New Orleans, without hesitation.

Loved our stay at Lions Inn!

I stayed in this adorable little place March 11-15. I had Room D which was just above the balcony-it was small which is what I expected. It had a huge window that I usually had wide open because it was so nice and cool out. The bathroom was shared and across the hall. The continental breakfast was more than enough to fill me and the coffee was delicious. There was also a little coffee and pastry shop just down on the corner that was also lovely. Would totally stay here again my next trip out!

très satisfaisant

The Lion's Inn is just the perfect place to stay, not far from the French Quarter, close to Frenchmen street, quiet neighborhood. Ed is a gentleman
