Lions Inn

Excellent location! Perfectly located near the the French Quarter yet apart and distinct. We have on site bicycle storage for guests who rent their own bikes for touring. Relax in the peaceful garden and patio with a book or use the WiFi access by the swimming pool.Continental breakfast daily.

Quiet, peaceful

Very peaceful resting spot afree partaking in a day of walking and sightseeing. Also a nice little cafe if you want a full size breakfast. We walked every day to the French Quarter.

Second time - even better

This was my second stay and Lion's Inn and I enjoyed it even more. I stayed in Room 1 right off of the pool and it was like paradise. Very nice and accommodating host and staff. A beautiful neighborhood with a few restaurants, a fairly quick walk to Frenchmen and a little further to Bourbon Street.

Nice location in New Orleans. Ed was helpful when we came in. We had a quiet room on the side of the house. Garden and swimming pool were very well maintained. Excellent choices for breakfast.

The Lions Inn was lovely!

The property is absolutely gorgeous, Ed the host was most gracious and accommodating. The location is quiet yet convenient to the livelier entertainment areas of New Orleans. Would recommend highly.

Lovely place to stay in the Marigny

I very much enjoyed my stay at the Lions Inn. Had heard great things about it from friends and they were right! Perfect location, wonderful host, and a gorgeous pool/garden area to enjoy breakfast or a late afternoon swim. I will definitely choose Lions for my next visit.

Thank you, Ed and staff, for your hospitality. My husband and I had a lovely weekend, and the Lions Inn was a big part of it. :)

Love this place

My husband and I love this place. Very laid back. Everyone is very respectful, including other guest. One room we really like. They always work with us to reserv this room. It is a peaceful place in the middle of a fast pace world. Sitting out by the poolyou can forget you are in the city. Always feel at home here. Defiantly will return to this bed and breakfast.

Paradise on Chartres Street

4.4 on May 27, 2016

When we walked up to the Lions Inn for the first time, there were two guests who had just checked out waiting for a cab. They said "Have you seen the back yet?" "No," we replied. They looked at each other and smiled. "A little paradise," they told us. And it was. This is the perfect b&b for New Orleans. Removed from the craziness, near great little spots in the quiet Marigny, and yet so close to Frenchman Street. The most charming host. A beautiful garden with koi pond, hot tub, ultra refreshing pool. Nice continental breakfast with yogurt, fruit, cereal, etc. We cannot wait to return. Thank you Lions Inn!!!

Great location for activities in NOLA, with an outdoor oasis for relaxing. Great Inn keeper. Spotless clean. Easy walk to French quarter and hidden gem local dining.
