Royal Barracks Guest House
We stayed in the bunk house, which has bunk beds that were comfy, the only problem was the toilet was a bit small for my long legs, kelly was very friendly and helpful, the quest house is in a quiet area of the French Quarter but close enough to everything

Lovely location
Lovely location midway between Jackson Square and Frenchmen Street. Lots of character and the really helpful Kelly. If I returned I would not stay anywhere else.

Hidden Gem
We spent 3 nights at Royal Barracks Guest House, a real find for French Quarter accommodations. It is quiet, yet convenient to the party that is Bourbon Street, galleries on Royal Street, Frenchmen Street restaurants and art market, the French Market and the Riverfront Streetcar - easy walking or riding to everywhere we wanted to go. We stayed in the Blue Room, unique and funky, but quite comfortable.

Quaint and Unique Place
The best way to describe this guest house is quaint. If you are used to big chain hotels and want a big bathroom and all the amenities, you are likely to not be happy here. However, if you want a unique experience with great customer service in a great area, look no further. The room was small but had everything in it that one would need for a comfortable stay. They do not clean the room daily, but I like my privacy so that was not an issue for me, they are very accommodating so I'm sure if you asked they would. The room does show some wear and could use some minor repairs and a deep cleaning, but overall we enjoyed our stay. The area was really quiet but very close to all the action.

New Orleans Charm
This place is wonderful. Kelly was very helpful and accommodating. The room had a unique New Orleans charm and it is walking distance to everything great. We will definitely be back.
