The gentlemen that own this B & B are gracious hosts and very helpful. There is an upgrade planned for Asian room that will be a positive improvement. We were very comfortable none-the-less. We loved the location!

My husband I stayed here for our first trip to NOLA, and it was wonderful, close to everything in walking distance, the room was great and spacious. Peter makes the best breakfast ever.

This b$b was awesome. Peter was very friendly and informative of the city and activities to do. The breakfast was delicious, that French toast was Devine.

I would highly recommend the Five Continents- it was a great place to stay while visiting New Orleans. Peter was a wonderful host who made great breakfasts and was full of information and tips about the area. The accommodations were outstanding.

We stayed in the Eurasian suite with out 2 children, and it was perfect for us. We also had friends that stayed in the Cottage, so we were able to use the patio areas with them and the kids nightly. Peter's breakfasts were delicious, their dog is so sweet, their service was wonderful, and I would definitely stay again. Since we were traveling with children, we chose to drive each day rather than walk. Their off-street parking made that very convenient.
