We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at The Five Continents B&B. The hosts were gracious and accommodating; the breakfasts were fantastic; and the location was perfect. We were able to walk everywhere, safely and conveniently. We would definitely stay here again!

My husband and I recently stayed at the 5 Continents for 3 days/nights. Overall we enjoyed our stay and would recommend it to others! The main house is decorated beautifully and really gives a feeling of being in Nola. The hosts were very friendly and accommodating. Any questions we had they answered to the best of their ability and always...

I have reviewed many places all over the world, but this one has proven to be the most difficult to write, due to the fact that I wanted to try to remain positive, simultaneously giving an honest constructive opinion. As you can see the vast majority of previous reviewers believe it’s an excellent one. It is for lots of different...

Thank you for your comments. It is always sad to hear when a guest is disappointed by certain aspects of their stay at the Five Continents. These observations are very much the exception. For most guests our house is a base for exploring what is really interesting here, namely the city, its culture and its many fabulous attractions. Our guests...

LOVED, LOVED, LOVED it! The B&B is situated just outside of the French Quarter, certainly within walking distance. We loved the charm and architectural design of the old home, turned B&B. Our hosts and small staff paid personal attention to our every need. We loved every morsel of food that was served for breakfast. We stayed twice. Our stay began...

Loved this building, lots of quaint character. We stayed in the Egyptian room. Parking was gated and private so you feel safe not having to leave your car on the street. You can come and go as you please with your own set of keys, building is always locked so it's very safe. Breakfast was absolutely fantastic! The walk wasn't...

My husband and I stayed in the cottage behind the bed and breakfast. The place is clean, quiet, and had everything we needed. The French Quarter is only a 10-15 minute walk from the bed and breakfast. We really enjoyed breakfast in the mornings and coming back "home" in the evenings. Peter is an excellent host and chef. We will...

Let's start by saying location is fantastic. Our room was lavishly decorated we had the Asia room. The only thing we say is because the shutters were closed no natural light got in. The balcony outside was lovely and gave us chance to get to know the neighbours. The breakfast was amazing and great choice. Peter was our host for...

This place exceeded all expectations. Ten minute walk from French Quarter and about 25ish from the Superdome. A nice quiet place to retreat to after hitting the town. The owners respect your privacy whilst remaining welcoming and helpful, and the included breakfast was insane - better than most you'd go out and pay for!

This B&B is exactly what you expect. It is a very old, majestic home. Our room was comfortable and clean. The atmosphere is informal. There were a couple of burnt out light bulbs which is always a little annoying. Breakfast was great and the owner/staff was very friendly and helpful with lots of good advice. We only spent one night...

“The Cottage offers the greatest privacy and has a wonderful porch for reading, enjoying a glass of wine, or just relaxing. It is not a part of the main house, although you have a key to the main house for entering for breakfast. Visit their website for pictures.”
