We stayed in this hotel for Jazz Fest this year and were delighted. It is close to the Jazz Fest location and also easy to get to local Treme restaurants, and the French Quarter. The rooms are lovely. The common rooms are spacious and a great place to hang out with friends. The food is great. Peter is a wonderful... More

This was my third year at the Five Continents Bed and Breakfast and we loved it. The host, Peter is helpful, friendly and an excellent chef. He makes the best French toast I've ever had. We stay here when we go to Jazz Fest. I recommend this place to others who wish to stay in a beautiful restored home with... More

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... More

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... More

Peter N, Owner at Five Continents Bed and Breakfast, responded to this review

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... More

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... More

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... More

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... More
