What our guests say
We were all so comfortable at the Old Jail and it really felt like home the minute we walked in.
Beautifully restored historic building in a very convenient location. Only a few blocks from Broad and a short walk to the trolley cars on Canal street (which connect you to the rest of the city). Rooms are beautifully decorated yet affordable. Owners Raoul and Liz are extremely attentive and ensure that your stay is enjoyable. This inn is a must see, and I would highly recommend to anyone!
My husband and I finally got the opportunity to visit the Inn at the Old Treme Jail and would definitely recommend it to anyone staying in the area. Our experience was for sure very memorable. During our stay we felt like we were at a home away from home. It was a safe neighborhood and allowed easy access to many other points of interest. The Inn presented great history of the jail and it’s structure was very unique with a modern touch. Also, can’t forget to mention how amicable Liz and Raul were. Overall, we enjoyed ourselves and would love to be back again!
A beautiful structure, keeping all the charm and history intact. So wonderful to have this magical space reinvented into a lovely inn, and in such a wonderful neighborhood. Fits perfectly into the fabric of the Treme. Love love love it.
The hotel is extremely unique and beautiful. Raul & Liz are the humble & down to earth people. The tour is amazing…the rooms are extremely clean and have a very “home” feeling for being an old jail. We will be back soon. Blessings.
LOVED this place. It’s so nice and clean. The beds and pillows were the most comfy ones I have ever slept on in my life. Woke up with no body aches. The owners are so sweet, kind and welcoming. It was nice being in a jail for a night. I will for sure be staying here again and recommending this place to others. Just be aware it is street parking but I wouldn’t be worried about it. Very happy with this place.
What a gem, a fantastic recently renovated hotel
The nicest couple owns this hotel and they restored this jail/hotel, we passed through just to check it out! We made reservations for voodoo fest in October! Can’t wait for our stay!
The building itself is beautiful, and very carefully restored, sparing no attention to detail and very comfortable to stay in. The room we stayed in, unlike in many high end hotels, echoed all of the same architectural touches as the rest of the space, including exposed brick, high ceilings, polished floors, antique furniture, a great non-standard issue bathroom and very comfy beds. Our room had several high windows from which we could see the almost-full moon. There is also a beautiful upstairs deck with views around the neighborhood. The neighborhood itself, was quiet, and a very short (5min or so) car or bike ride from the French Quarter. Raul and Liz were very gracious, welcoming and knowledgeable about the property, which is clearly a labor of love. I very highly recommend it.
Talk about HISTORY!!! This place is the place to stay!! Liz and Raul, the owners, are so amazing! They have taken so much time to restore this old jail and you can see it in every detail of every room! We were the third guests to stay since they opened and we will be back!! Go see why this is the new place to be!!
A more authentic NOLA than the French Quarter with as much history and twice the charm. An experience that should not be missed.
Magic place and lovely people Raúl and Liz!!! They are giving the old-charm back to the city!
