un have de paix

5 on September 07, 2016

Le Burgundy a été un véritable havre de paix pour nous. On a pu poser nos bagages et nous laisser porter par Carl qui est un homme absolument fantastique. Grâce à lui, on a faire les visites insolites et importantes de la nouvelle Orlean. La maison est situé dans un quartier vraiment très sympa ( le quartier!) avec magasins bio à côté et accessible à pied du centre. Elle est très agréable, avec une cuisine à disposition qui permet de préparer ses propres salades ou réchauffer ses plats, un petit salon pour les invités et une cours intérieure. Non vraiment c'est ma plus belle expérience de Guest House. Simple, cosy, sympa, intéressant ( les discussions avec Carl). Isabelle ( et ses deux enfants)

Amazing as usual.

From the start Carl is so sweet and welcoming. The entire home is beautiful and vintage. The rooms are perfect, and clean, comfortable. I will and have recommended to other couples in my community. It's the perfect location for all that is the French Quarter, and a cute bar literally 5 houses away.

friendly, homey

Carl was a most pleasant host. I was travelling with my 3 sons and he made a point of learning all our names and greeting us each morning by name. The breakfast was far more than I expected and Carl was nice enough to join us each day. He provided us extra festival chairs for the jazz fest which saved us time and money. I'll be sure to book a room here again on my next stay and will pass along the address to anybody I know coming to New Orleans. Brian Milburn, Clinton, MA

This is our 3rd year staying at the burGUNdy while we attend French Quarter Fest. An easy walk to Frenchmen St and the Quarter. I continue to love the funkiness of the neighborhood and appreciate staying in this double shotgun. I consider innkeeper Carl Smith a friend and always enjoy talking with him over breakfast. It has always been quiet and comfortable in our room and the place has a nice laid back vibe.

A satisfied return guest

Always a pleasure to stay at the Burgundy B&B. Away yet close enough to enjoy the Frenchquarter. The Burgundy offers personal touches and a warm private atmosphere that's hard to find. Thanks again. We hope to see them again next year.

First Experience with a B & B

4.2 on March 01, 2016

My wife and I chose to stay at this Bed and Breakfast for our last 2 nights in NOLA. It was such a nice change from the hotel we were in at the beginning of the week. Carl was very welcoming as was the whole place; the room was very comfortable. We will definitely consider B & B's for our future travels!

A nice, quiet place to stay

Thank you Carl for your hospitality. You provided lots of advice regarding the area restaurants and attractions that helped us out. It was great talking to you about your city. We will see you again sometime.

Great B&B to experience New Orleans

5 on February 13, 2016

The Burgundy was perfect for our first trip to Mardi Gras! It was close enough to walk to all the fun but far enough away if you just needed to relax for a minute. Carl (the innkeeper) was great and told us all the places to go and how to get there. We stayed in the Green room and it was quiet and very comfortable. If you want to have a full experience of New Orleans, this is great place to stay.

Quiet B&B in convenient location

4.6 on January 25, 2016

The Burgundy B&B was exactly what I was looking for when I wanted a short stay in NoLa. It was within walking or biking distance of everything I wanted to do. Carl was a pleasant and informative host. The B&B was quiet and clean; my room (the smallest available) was much bigger than I expected and benefitted from a nice tall ceiling. The house rules were fairly standard for a B&B; not overly strict or lenient which would have potentially made the enjoyable stay, well, less enjoyable. I would absolutely recommend it and plan to return. Note that I didn't have a car; I walk and bike when I'm in town. So proximity to what a visitor may want to do is of course relative.
