Excellent location, very friendly staff

Posted 2-May-2016
Pros: The friendly staff and Location, Location, Location
Cons: A bit of room maintenance
Location: Close proximity to all the action. We walked everywhere and always felt safe. Cool little coffee shops and cafes within a couple blocks
We were nervous based on reviews, but we were short on options and decided to give it a shot. As all you do while in New Orleans is hang out till wee hours, we were not so worried about it. There were 12 of us and everyone said they would go again. The early mornings and late evenings on the main front deck meeting new people was great. The rooms are in dis-repair and I wonder why they don't spend a few hundred a room to improve, but? I have stayed in other reasonably priced slightly off the action hotels and homes and this was .not all that much worse.

DO NOT STAY HERE!

Posted 17-Apr-2016
Pros: NOTHING
Cons: Tear it down or gut it and renovate.
Location: Location is not bad.
The conditions are horrible. The hotel staff are nice but in retrospect ashamed. We were shown to our room, which is dead bolted and the front desk person left immediately. When we entered the room the walls are in horrendous condition, the bathroom floor was rotted through, the mattresses are covered in plastic, the room smelled. The only window was was opaque glass with a broken blind. There were roach traps in the bathroom and the best of all, only one bath towel with black stain marks. We left and found another hotel on royal street for twice as much but 1,000 percent better.

The only good thing I can say is that the location is awesome but the management needs to make upgrade to the rooms. They need to makes major repairs and fixed the water leaks. It was not worth the money I spent. Another hotel told us this place is known for prostitution and drug place. We we're so very disappointed, it could really be a great place if the owner put money into the facility.

Spartanisches Hotel in Nähe des French Quaters

Posted 11-Apr-2016
Die Lage des Hotels ist super! Es befindet sich unmittelbar am Eingang zum French Quater. Abends ziehen sogar noch Bands direkt am Hotel vorbei. Die Zimmer sind sehr einfach. Es gibt ein Bett, einen Stuhl und einen Fernseher. Weder Ablagen, einen Kleiderschrank, noch Wandhaken sind vorhanden. Generell ist es nicht besonders sauber und die Decke hat etwas geschimmelt, weil es im Bad weder Lüftung, noch Fenster gibt. Außerdem ist es sehr laut. Man hört alles, was sich im Gang abspielt. Die Zimmertüren können gar nicht leise geschlossen werden, weil sie ineinander keilen. Alles in allem würde ich das Hotel nicht mehr buchen. Es war mein zweiter Aufenthalt in New Orleans, daher weiß ich aus Erfahrung, dass es bessere Alternativen zum gleichen Preis gibt.

Close to the French Quarter, it's a good & cheap

Posted 15-Mar-2016
It's great if you want a place to sleep and shower. Just a few blocks away from the French Quarter. The staff was nice. For us it was a good stay. Not to expensive. I'm you don't go to New Orleans to sit in a fancy hotle anyway. Prefect for people who are going to spend a lot of time seeing the city. The only thing I say is. . . If you have kiddos this is not really a place you would probably want to take them, it more of an adult atmosphere. Nothing crazy a lot of people coming back late from Bourbon Street. Lol

Location: Within walking distance of Bourbon St.
Dirty floors, mold and dust on ceiling. Ant traps in room. No guests allowed back in rooms. Weird shower head, had to crouch down a little to be under it. Another patron's cash was stolen. Declined room service due to this. Charged for something not agreed with, but paid to not start anything.

Nasty Hotel

Posted 23-Feb-2016
Pros: Leaving it
Location: Bad unless you want to be robbed or mugged.
Dirty falling apart and smelly with cockroaches. This hotel should not be on any respectable travel site. The area is unsafe and the hotel is a haven for cockroaches and drug addicts.

Close to French Quarter.

Posted 14-Feb-2016
Pros: Cheapest option for me. Lightning fast internet, cable TV, and hot water. Free parking. Staff was really nice.
Cons: Sound-proofing, but hey, this is a low budget operation and it was fine for the price. Parking was even free.
Location: 2 1/2 blocks to French Quarter.
Will be even better, when the new streetcar line opens on Rampart, which is 2 blocks from the Empress.
