We made reservations for a 4 night stay but checked out the morning after our first night. The photo of the room we had did not match the room. A couch had been added that took up much of the floor space on one side of the bed. The light above the bed had a spider web. The bathroom had a light and fan directly above the shower and had a pull to turn on the light that hung over the shower rod making use of the shower scary. The walls had peeling paint. The reviews of the B and B were shabby chic and reported to be clean but my opinion is the rooms were shabby and had not been kept in good condition. The hosts were very kind and allowed us to arrive late but when leaving did not ask any questions when we said we had to leave , said ok, and did not offer at least a partial refund of the room payment as we were charged for 4 days and stayed only one. Admittedly, we did not ask for the refund but were surprised that there was no conversation other than "ok". I believe the photos were done after an update and this update was done quite a while ago. We were surprised that a 5 star rating had been given. The price for the a night was very reasonable but only if the condition of the room had been as pictured. The location is very nice. The exterior was as expected.

There are many B&B's in the Marigny and I've been to many of them. La Dauphine will now be near the top of my list when I return. They are extremely courteous and helpful - or not if you say you don't need it. I enjoyed the room and was pleasantly surprised at the layout (I prefer to avoid human contact and found it rather easy here which is hard to find in most B&B's). There's probably better places for breakfast, but you didn't come to New Orleans for continental fair every morning. The owner is a fascinating guy who has a lot of stories - though, you may find yourself locked in a conversation a little longer than you intended when you sit down with him. Overall, the place is great and I can't wait to come back.

Clean, comfortable but somewhat cluttered. I'd go back.

We spent three nights at La Dauphine recently and could not have been happier. The hosts, Ray and Kim, were warm, friendly and provided lots of helpful advice. The location was perfect, very close to the French Quarter and other hot spots, but in a residential neighborhood with lots of charm. We are already looking forward to our next visit.

Charming little place. Not for you if you need modern or squeaky clean. This is an old house but full of character, and run by a couple of really friendly, accommodating gentlemen. The location is perfect, a few blocks off of Frenchman, with a great cafe right around the corner. Highly recommended for those that know the city well and want to embed themselves fully.

This charming B&B, located within walking distance of the French Quarter, offered cozy rooms, gracious accommodations, and great rates. Even over Halloween weekend, the neighborhood location of this this B&B remained quiet, though it was just blocks away from the action on Frenchman Street and the French Quarter. This was our third trip to New Orleans, and of the places we have stayed, this has been our favorite. We look forward to coming back and staying here again!

Our hosts Ray and Kim were an unexpected joy during our stay in New Orleans. Ray knows New Orleans very well and offers excellent recommendations. The house is at a very convenient location so you can easily walk to the french quarter yet enjoy staying in a quiet neighborhood. I would definitely stay at La Dauphine again.

My husband and I very much enjoyed outer stay at the La Dauphine bed and breakfast. It was the perfect distance to Frenchman Street (the best night life), and also walkable to the French Quarter and Bourbon. We would walk to the Quarter in the morning, walk back to Frenchman at night, and then back to our room after. The room was also very nice and we were even provided a map of the best streets to walk down when we arrived. Highly recommended.
