The host, Peter, was gracious, helpful, and accessible. I've stayed here before and have always been very satisfied. The location makes visiting New Orleans more manageable.

My husband and I stayed at Five Continents for several nights while visiting New Orleans for Jazz Fest. It was walking distance to the fair grounds. We stayed in the cottage. The room was very spacious, more like a mini apartment. Peter was wonderfully hospitable and personable and his homemade breakfasts were delicious. A million times better than staying in a hotel.

We had a wonderful 3 night stay in the North American Cottage. It was clean, beautifully decorated, and very peaceful. We enjoyed the proximity to the French Quarter and found it easy to get around the city. The breakfast each morning is absolutely amazing and even though we did not get the chance to meet the owners (they were on vacation), we were very well treated by both David and Becky. We will recommend Five Continents B&B to all of our friends and will definitely be back!

Our stay here was one of the most memorable. The facilities were exceptionally well cared for. The staff, including Akko their dog were the most friendly and conscientious we have had on any of our trips. We would return here on any occasion for a New Orleans visit. This a high value B & B.

Immediately upon arriving Peter made my husband and I feel welcomed! The inn was beautiful our two room suite was spacious, clean and beautifully decorated. The breakfasts were amazing and prepared as requested. Peter and Walter made us feel right at home and we all had great conversations during our breakfasts with other guests. The only problem was that we had only 3 days to enjoy the accomodations and the beautiful city of New Orleans. We will be back!! Thank you for everything!

We stayed only one night after deciding to start our vacation a day earlier than we originally planned. Our other accommodations were in the French Quarter at another B&B. The Five Continents Bed and Breakfast was beautiful! Compared to our other B&B I would rate the Five Continents much higher. We drove and they allowed us to park our car in their gated drive way FOR FREE! They served a delicious breakfast, which our other bed and breakfast did not! The location is only a short taxi ride from the French Quarter and in my option worth the cheaper nightly rate and the extras they provide.
