Had a great stay. The food was great! Definitely try the French Toast! The room was a tad bit dusty, but otherwise comfortable. The period pieces are nice, albeit sprinked with some contemporary furnishings that should be phased out. Peter and Walter are very cordial.

Peter and Walter were the best hosts! Very knowledgable about the Quarter and did all they could to make sure our stay in New Orleans was a vacation to remember! There is offsite parking and the B&B is within walking distance to the quarter! I highly recommend this B&B to anyone coming to New Orleans! Also, the breakfasts wee great. Goo selection and Peter is a great cook!

We loved our stay and couldn't have imagined it any other way. Our room in the cottage was fantastic, along with the parking, breakfast every morning and the main dining area where it was served. Thank you Peter for contributing to our wonderful honeymoon with your great service/Bed and Breakfast!

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!

We knew what to expect beforehand, by reading prior reviews and the Five Continents met or exceeded all our expectations. Peter was a very gracious and informative host, who took the time to recommend tours, restaurants and other places of interest. The breakfasts were outstanding, and there was a nice list to choose from. Each guest gets their choice prepared especially for them. If you are visiting New Orleans, you will enjoy the comfort and hospitality of the Five Continents Bed & Breakfast.
