About

Balcony Guest House, is a bed and breakfast conveniently located in the Creole Faubourg Marigny. At 2483 Royal Street (Corner of St Roch and Royal) it is only 6 Blocks from the French Quarter. Our guesthouse is the renovated second floor proprietor's home of Schiro’s Grocery. It features comfortable and inviting accommodations (4 Guest Rooms and the Master Suite) with a New Orleans Creole / Caribe feel. The Café and Bar is a popular neighborhood gathering place for our local collection of artists, musicians, and lets just say “personalities”, and offers authentic New Orleans comfort food, knock your socks off cocktails, and great people watching. The Marigny is also home to the New Orleans Center for Creative Arts, an emerging live music and eclectic restaurant scene of Frenchman Street, and the historic St. Roch Cemetery. A short bike ride and you are at idyllic City Park. There, you can stroll in the botanical gardens, lounge under the infamous “Dueling Oaks”, or lunch at the world renowned New Orleans Museum of Art.

Property was beautiful but no one seemed to know anything about anything.

2.2 on April 06, 2017

Booked my room through the Balcony House/Silk Road website. When I checked in, I was told I had rented a property across town. I asked if the property that I was now having to stay at was on the website. They informed me that it was not so I was confused as to how I rented a place that wasn't even being advertised. The first apartment they put us in was very nice, but the air conditioner wasn't working. A landscaper outside had to call the owner and we were then put next door. We weren't even given an address to this place, we had to follow the innkeeper over there so they could clean it. I had no codes to the doors, no general information at all when the inn keeper started to leave. She have me the information and I finally got a text message about an hour after we were all settled. We weren't on site of the complimentary breakfast, but we could drive to the other property if we wanted that. We also were not in the room by the check in time. We ended up in a much bigger room than we paid for, and the property was beautiful aside from the work being done in the yard. Aside from not seeming to have their crap together in terms of people having any information about anything, and by also putting me in a room I didn't actually rent, it was a nice visit. But I don't think I'll ever book with them again.


A Magical Stay

The Balcony Guesthouse is, even in New Orleans, an exceptionally precious experience. Immaculate, well-appointed rooms with a comforting feeling of having arrived for a relaxed visit in an 1875 private home; a splendid restaurant with a creative, lively bar; and friendly, helpful service at every turn. From the people you encounter to the lush foliage surrounding the property, there's that easy, happy, indulged feeling of languid, understated old luxury. A great neighborhood, quaint, wonderful coffee shops, beautifully restored old homes. Go here. Suzanne Lea

The Balcony Guesthouse in New Orleans, in The Marigny, is a supremely magical, wonderful place to visit. Exquisite, pristine, elegant. Lively neighborhood, outstanding bar, lush surroundings. The Silk Road restaurant surpasses expectation even in New Orleans. Go there, relax, and enjoy an experience you will not forget.

Calhoun Winning Wedding Weekend was EXCELLENT!

5 on July 25, 2016

My fiance and I were looking for a place that would house all 16 of our immediate family members for our intimate wedding weekend. We stumbled across the Balcony Guesthouse and we were both immediately intrigued with it's beauty. Once we made reservations, Zak made it incredibly easy to ask questions, while receiving incredible responses from him. He made this whole process so simple....every step of the way. When we arrived for our weekend the staff was generous, courteous, and available for anything we needed. The space was perfect for our family. The beds were incredible. No one ever wanted to get out of them. The restaurant downstairs is convenient and absolutely delicious. My husband and I are planning to revisit soon!

My boyfriend and I snuck away for a couple days and this was the place! We loved the room with the amazing view. We will come here again.


Great location!

Great location with restaurants and bars within walking distance. Staff was very friendly and helped to make our stay enjoyable. French market is a short walk away as is the trolley. The balcony was why we picked this B&B and it did not disappoint.


A great stay

This is a great place to stay on the edge of the French Quarter ... away from the tourists. You get a real feel for the local community here. My favorite this was the little sitting area near the balcony door. I spent hours there reading one night. Very relaxing. Everyone in the restaurant/bar downstairs are very friendly, the food is delicious.


Three nights in the Marigny

Very quiet and just a short walk to Frenchman Street. You can still easily walk to Bourbon Street in a few minutes - but why when there is so much else to do. Don't miss the Thai restaurant on Royal and Elysian Fields - truly great.


Great place, great value.

This B&B in a quaint neighborhood. It offers a real feel for the more authentic section of the French Quarter (away from the typical tourist sites). The restaurant and bar on the first floor of the building has excellent food ... I highly recommend the lentil and spinach soup.
