Wonderful house with excellent amenities and close to everything. About one minute's walk to Frenchmen Street and only half a block to the start of the Quarter, though probably a 10 minute stroll to the start of any FQ attractions. George, the property manager, is very helpful in orienting you to the area and highlighting the local music and food favorites. Our personal favorites are Coop's on Decatur for fantastic local food, especially the Rabbit and Gator Jambalaya; at peak times, there will be a line, but it's totally worth waiting (or go early or late). Check out Maison and Cafe Negril on Frenchmen for great music any night of the week for no cover. You can't go wrong with this accommodation -- the location is ideal!

We loved the clean, lovely cottage. George, the person who checked us in, was wonderful and gave us maps and lots of advise. We appreciated that a lot. Perfect location for walking to French Quarter, Bourbon Street, and we especially loved the shops and restaurants on Royal.

I loved this location for my stay in New Orleans. The cottage is beautiful and the service was very accommodating. I loved the neighborhood - really convenient for hanging out on Frenchmen or in the Quarter. I would stay here again and again - and I hope to do so! Thanks! Jenna

THIS IS THE PERFECT PLACE TO BE! THERE WERE 4 ADULTS, AGED 52 TO 58. THERE WAS MORE THAN ENOUGH ROOM. THE PICTURES MAKE THE ROOMS LOOK NARROW, BUT THEY AREN'T. EVERYTHING WAS IN PERFECT CONDITION, EXTREMELY CLEAN, ROOMY AND LOVELY DECOR. THE COURTYARD MADE YOU FEEL THAT YOU WERE SECURE AND IT WAS SO NICE TO SIT OUT. THE PLACE IS AT THE BEST LOCATION YOU COULD ASK FOR. WE RENTED A CAR FOR THE WEEK AND FOUND A PLACE TO PARK. YOU DO HAVE TO BE CAREFUL. IF YOU ONLY WANT TO BE IN THE NEW ORLEANS AREA, THERE WOULD NOT BE A NEED FOR A VEHICLE. WE TOOK CABS FOR OUR NIGHTS OUT BUT WAS HAPPY TO HAVE A CAR TO TRAVEL DURING THE DAY. IF YOU HAVE A CAR, BE SURE TO GO TO ZEA ROTISSERIE<>GRILL IN METAIRIE. HAD LUNCH THERE TWICE. AWESOME!!! I WILL ADMIT THAT I CAN BE PICKY AND THERE IS NOT ONE NEGATIVE THING I CAN SAY ABOUT OUR STAY.

Amazing cottage - close to everything!

Our group of six decided to head down to New Orleans for New Year's, and we wanted a place that could accommodate all of us comfortably and still be close to the action. We found the Cottage on Royal, and it was great! The cottage truly was charming, and it was only a short walk down to Frenchman St, Jackson Square, and Bourbon St. As other reviewers have noted, the cottage sits right across the street from a pretty popular bar, so there is a bit of noise late at night. However, what do you expect in the French Quarter? It was not a problem for us. The place was absolutely gorgeous and was appointed with everything we needed. It is clear that this is a well-cared for rental unit. The only issue we had was that there was construction on the unit next door almost every day we were there. It wasn't so bad until the morning we woke up to the guys sawing down and removing the trim around the front door of OUR unit. It was VERY loud and took away from our experience (we did come down for the complete New Orleans experience, after all). It was definitely an inconvenience that we were not made aware of before or when we arrived. An oversight by the property manager, I'm sure. All in all, our experience at the Cottage on Royal was a good one. Had there not been VERY LOUD construction most mornings of our stay, I would not hesitate to give a 5-star rating. I imagine when there ISN'T construction, it's an even more amazing place to stay! We would certainly consider staying here again, and we definitely recommend the Cottage on Royal!

Charming cottage, ideal location

The cottage was even cleaner and cuter than I expected. It was ideal for a group of girlfriends travelling together. The courtyard and carriageway were so charming, and the house itself was just lovely. I would absolutely return here again.

Very lovely cottage. Clean and tastefully decorated. Pictures on website are nice but it's even better in person. Great neighborhood and easy walk to the French Quarter. The property manager is a gem, and has lots of helpful information for first time visitors. Even with the occasional late night noise from the bar across the street we wouldn't hesitate to stay here again.

My husband and I stayed here with our teenage daughter in January. It was a very nice little cottage, hidden away in the back of a courtyard/patio, accessible by a code. We felt very comfortable and safe in the area and loved how close the cottage was to the French Quarter as well as lots of nice restaurants. The noise from the bar across the street was definitely noticeable on the weekends, but not unusual for New Orleans. The cottage was very clean and updated, and nicely decorated. Our only minor complaint was that someone was waiting outside our cottage about 20 minutes prior to our checkout time, waiting to come clean it, and we felt rushed to leave because of that. Other than that, everything was great.
