This was by far and away the WORST place I have ever stayed! The reviews are correct that the sheers on the windows are completely see through at night. The first night, I stayed in the bedroom. Sheets are worn and have holes in them. The bed was terrible. The next night I decided to try the sofa bed. It was even worse. The location is good. A block from Squeal Barbeque and Jacques Imo's, but don't expect to get any sleep.
If I could upload pictures, I would, as I took a lot. The paint is peeling off the walls in the bathroom. The kitchen sink is full of rust, as is the soap dispenser. I felt like the whole place needed a good scrubbing, paint, and definitely attention to linens and mattresses. If you are a backpacker on a budget, you may consider this, but if not, go elsewhere!
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Jewel Box, as it is exactly what we needed for my husband and I for a short two night stay during Carnival season! We had stayed downtown in the warehouse district the first two nights because of the proximity to a meeting I was attending and then moved uptown for the weekend so we could be close to the Maple Leaf Bar and Jacques-Imo's Cafe, which is one of the hottest tickets in New Orleans for anyone looking for "real Nawlin's food." Both are located just steps from the Jewel Box and so there is no need for a car, only downside is that the streetcar line was under construction while we there so if you are counting on it, then you have to get on and off and switch back and forth between it and a bus or walking, so somewhat of an inconvenience. Only downsides to the condo are as follows: 1) The bathroom is older and could use some updating, 2) The Bedroom mattress is not very comfortable at all and the bedding and pillows are old and warn out, 3) The den is very small and so if you plan on bringing a 3rd person to crash, they will not have much room. Neither of these really bothered us much because we were hardly in the apt/condo at all. Upside included that we LOVED having the screened in porch for the short times that we were there, and of course it is nice have a reasonable sized kitchen. Overall we definitely enjoyed our stay and will most certainly consider staying at the Jew Box again!
Arrived to the property and was a little worried about my choice in lodging due to the seemingly un-kept lawn and pale pink unassuming outward appearance of the property. As soon as I figured out how to unlock the door and stepped foot inside my wrinkled forehead and scowl relaxed into a huge smile. I immediately appreciated what I could only assume was a "woman's touch" with all of the decor and teal accents throughout. My friends stepped in behind me and each offered a squeal of delight, satisfaction and kudos on my deciding to forego a hotel room this visit and go with this. One of the girls ventured into the kitchen area and noticed the "Welcome to the Jewel Box" handwritten sign, and declared "Jewel Box' my foot..this is the Jewel!" Needless to say we enjoyed our girl's trip to New Orleans, loved the area we were in amongst the locals. We enjoyed some good eating at Jacqui Mo's, Camelia's Grill, and being Texas girls we couldn't resist the delicious bbq and a cold Abita from Squeals Barbecue which was directly next to the property...which we later agreed the smoke aroma was a bit better than the actual taste lol. The only con that comes to mind is that the washer/dryer didnt work..major plus was a fully appointed kitchen and utensils. Can't wait for another excuse to visit again will def be staying here if available.
THis is a cute apt and not a bad location, but found the window locks broken or not functional and there were no blinds or shades on virtually all of the windows in the living and bedroom.....just sheer curtains which offer zero privacy with lights on.....As a single female, would not feel safe staying here....In fact, I didn't; even though I paid for four nights......left and found accommodations elsewhere.....an expensive lesson learned!
The Jewel Box is a small charming condo in a fun area of New Orleans. We stayed one month and would have been more comfortable in a larger space, but this condo is absolutely perfect for shorter stays. It's beautiful and has every convenience. The area is great. Good food and music available within three blocks. Great breakfasts at Oak St. Cafe, yummy falafels at Mona's, and a slightly longer walk to Ciro's du Sud for terrific mussels. It's around the corner from the well-known Jacques-Imo's restaurant. We are seniors and felt totally safe in the area.
In fact we like the area so well and love Lenora and her husband so much that we plan to stay with them again.
