Perfect location in a peaceful part of New Orleans

3.4 on April 23, 2014

Chose the pool room here on anticipation of hot weather - it was not the Lions' Inn fault that it was a bit chilly but the pool and garden are jungly and peaceful to sit in just the same. A nice place for guests to sit and meet each other. Room not huge and a bit dark but with good lights. A little underfurnished for my taste - could have done with a second bedside table and a bigger wardobe long enough for a dress with more than 3 hangers. We had also expected coffee making facilities but maybe this was our mistake - we were however able to use a microwave in a nearby room (down the outside passage). The cleaning service was good and we were able to get a load of washing done for $10. Breakfast was plentiful and help yourself served in a nice kitchen-diner or outside. We were there for 5 days and it did not change. Maybe a variety of pastries and breads and juices on different days would be nice. Useful Wifi. Most important - this place is in a wonderful leafy road within easy walk of Frenchman, the Mississippi and the French Quarter. There is free on-road parking. Its location is fantastic though you can hear train whistles at night which are sometimes disruptive to sleep - bring earplugs if sensitive. The hosts are welcoming. Recommended!

Calm, relaxing, beautiful.

This B&B was absolutely beautiful. So charming, with the serene pool and amazing courtyard landscaping. Perfect location, just blocks from the french quarter yet quiet enough to still feel like you're on a vacation. Ed was so friendly and accommodating, we truly felt like valued guests. Obviously we'll stay here again during our next visit.

I Love the Lion's Inn!

I love the Lion's Inn and would definitely stay there again! It's clean, the back patio and garden are beautiful, the neighborhood is quiet but close to the Quarter and lots of great bars/restaurants/galleries and coffee shops.

Lovely B&B

We just had an incredible time during our stay at the Lion's Inn. It is tucked away in a beautiful/artsy neighborhood with the cutest little cafe's, but is still within walking distance of all of the hustle and bustle that the French Quarter has to offer. The inn keeper was a gracious host, and the pool/hot tub area was like a hidden oasis. I will definitely be going back to this B&B, and highly recommend it!

a lovely place, that I enjoyed thoroughly
