Absolutely Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

We came to New Orleans to celebrate with friends and family. When we found this listing we were thrilled! The location is absolutely perfect and the decor could not be more lovely. We found the property manager extremely helpful and the owners very responsive.

Staying at this property made this a very special experience. Anyone looking for a place that's just right, private yet located in the middle of all the action, this is the place for you!

Highly recommended and very happy!

Great place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great experience at The Cottage on Royal! George was responsive to our check-in questions and met us when we arrived to show us our rental. He was delightful and gave us a great history of New Orleans as well as an extensive list of places to go and not to go. Everything was clean and fresh!

I would highly recommend staying here!!

Needs some TLC

  • 2 of 5

Started in the 3rd floor 2 bedroom. No elevator so had to walk up 40 winding stairs for access. Room was spacious. Furnishings needed updating. No TV, manager said they were working on getting somethingTV in room were small very old tube type. 1 bathroom very small. Air conditioning was not working. Manager said they would look at it on Monday(3 days). He switched us to a 1bd after fought wr left. 1bd & 2bath. Newer furnishings. 2 dead cockroaches 1 live one. Room needs work. Old cracked sealant in bathrooms. Floors needed. Cleaning especially bath rooms. No basic amenities such as soap in bathrooms, salt & pepper etc. old scratchy towels & wash cloths. More issues than space here. George the manager very friendly and helpful as possible given the state of the property. Great location but better placed elsewhere. Not good for seniors.

Great location

  • 4 of 5

We stayed for eight nights in early March. The location was excellent for immediate access to the French Quarter, and to streetcar connections. The apartment is well equipped and comfortable. Thanks for immediate attention on our first day to a couple of cleaning and equipment issues. The courtyard was a very nice enhancement. Small negatives--it wasn't as clean as I would have liked, and it's time for new bed linens (lots of stains) and pillows, please! I would recommend to friends to choose this apartment for a wonderful New Orleans getaway. One further note--if you have a car, the nearby parking is not free street parking (unless you want to spend time moving your car frequently), but a city lot is just a couple of blocks away and runs about $20 every 24 hours.

Arrived 7 FEB and NO ONE met us at the property, had to wait outside with our luggage for almost 50mins while we waited for the Property Manager & Owner (George Fee's voice mail is ALWAYS FULL) to respond and unlock the gate. Once finally inside there was NO HEAT (it was 55F in the unit). Contacted the Property Manager (Carol Gomez-Robelo) and she did nothing. We waited with friends who had heat at their place for almost 3 hours until the Owner finally called back. He told me the unit had heat on the 6th and that I did not know what I was talking about. I went back to the unit while Mr. Fee gave me bumbling instructions until I finally found the circuit breaker. Clicked the breaker and now we had heat. Additionally both TV's had NO SIGNAL, I reported this to the Mr. Fee and Ms Robelo and they both said someone would be out on the 8th to fix it. No one ever came out so we had NO TV the entire stay (7-12 FEB). Here are the other issues (have pics but no where to post): sheets had holes in them, vent in the bedroom was caked with dust/dirt/mold, the chain to the ceiling fan in the bedroom was caked with dirt/dust. Wish I could give this review ZERO STARS. The Property Manager is incompetent and does not respond efficiently, the owner is arrogant, rude and obnoxious. They are good at ensuring you pay your fee's in advance. So my recommendation is to NOT STAY HERE until they get new management, the place is cleaned properly, and they are able to respond to customers in an efficient manner.

We were so pleased!!!

  • 5 of 5

The cottage was just what we were looking for in a place to stay in New Orleans. Easy walking to everything in the French Quarter and only two blocks from all the Jazz on Fishermen Street. The cottage was beautifully decorated and very well kept. We enjoyed the courtyard when the weather was nice. George was so informative and helpful with tips on where to eat and what to see. WE can't wait for our next visit!!!
