To the point Discover our review following our stay in a beautiful Sonder apartment in New Orleans.... we'll explain this new concept!

After a one night stay at the Q&C HotelBar New Orleans, Autograph Collection, we invite your to discover our Sonder apartment in New Orleans.

What is Sonder?

The Sonder platform was invented in Montreal in 2014. Since then, it has been gradually conquering North America and gradually expanding into Europe.

North American cities already covered by Sonder

It meets a need: that of people who want the comfort provided by an apartment and the services provided by a hotel. And in this market, there are few players.

Sonder offers more than 2,500 apartments of all sizes (studio to… 6 bedrooms!) in nearly a dozen North American cities…. and has already won over 200,000 customers!

The advantage: no surprises on arrival that the apartments found on Airbnb can have. Comfort is assured, as is the cleanliness of the premises: it’s similar to entering a top-of-the-range hotel suite room.

Booking

Once the booking is made, Sonder will send you all the details to access your apartment. No need for keys, different access codes are provided to you: front door of the building, door of the apartment, WIFI code.

You also have a number that can be reached 24 hours a day by phone or SMS in case of need, which acts as a concierge: you need something, we bring it to you (e.g. a Firestick or Chromestick to see online content on your TV).

Arrival

So here we are at the door of our Sonder apartment building in New Orleans.

Sonder Apartment – New Orleans

The building smells new: it is probably a completely renovated industrial building. All the apartments on the 4 floors belong to…. Sonder.

As we enter the apartment, we notice one thing: it is bathed in light due to its position in the corner of the building!

Sonder has even left small welcome gifts for all guests, which are custom to each city. In this cas, we got coffee from New Orleans and different kinds of chips.

There is a very small dining room next to the entrance. Convenient for our lunches and dinners (we promise you, Arthur and Alexandra did not paint the frame 😆 ) .

The master bedroom and its bathroom

Let’s move on to the two bedrooms. The master bedroom first:

The bedding is very comfortable! On the other hand, if you like to sleep in the dark, go on your way. In this month of July, you’ll wake up at dawn with these white curtains.

There’s a very large dressing room in this bedroom, in which we were able to put all our luggage and the stroller.

An adjoining bathroom with shower + bathtub + toilet, again rather exceptional in our eyes for an apartment on short term rental!

Conclusion

This Sonder apartment is of excellent workmanship. With two children, the surface area – around 1000 sq. ft. – and the layout were ideal!

The cost per night was about the same as our first night’s hotel in New Orleans… that’s how great Sonder’s value for money is! In our future trips to cities covered by Sonder, we will certainly repeat the experience!
