We turned up after a 6 hour drive to be told that the hotel had been taken over and that our booking had been cancelled back in August. We were not made aware of this. We were told that they had cancelled people's bookings as they got more money of other people they had booked in. They did however assist... More

Three weeks before my trip to New Orleans, Five Continents cancelled my November reservation. The House Manager cited that they came under new ownership and would be operating as a guest house. She also said that they no longer had access to the credit card system used to process my deposit. She offered to send me back my refund via... More

I booked two connecting rooms in this B&B 4 months prior to our stay. When I contacted the owner to ask a question, I was told that the place had been sold and that it was being turned into a Guest House. She explained that they would give us vouchers for a nearby restaurant for breakfast. What I didn't realize... More

We were extremely disappointed with our 2 night stay at the 5 Continents. This is not a B&B. We were told 2 weeks before we arrived that the original owners sold and it was turned into a Guest House. There was no one to greet us when we arrived. The key was left in the mail box. The new owner... More

I stayed at this Bed and Breakfast a while back and just now got a chance to review it. We had an amazing experience here. The owners are very nice and attentive. They prepare an amazing breakfast every morning. This was our first time at a Bed & Breakfast and we were a little concerned about it. They changed the... More

I stayed here four days with my sister, mom, and aunt. We stayed in the European suite for our first time in New Orleans celebrating my sister's birthday. It was a very nice room with balcony. I enjoyed the house even though we did not sit in living area or use that area. We had a good breakfast each morning.... More

We stayed in the Asian suite, a nice and spacious room with access to a balcony. Everything was well kept and clean. The innkeeper Suzi made us feel right at home, she was always helpful and full of good recommendations. Her breakfast was stunningly good, a perfect start into the day!!

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

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Not your normal Bed and Breakfast. The Five Continents is a reflection of the owners' world travels and life experiences. Both the founding and current owners have lived in or visited five of the seven continents of the world, hence the name. Located just six blocks from the French Quarter down the historic Esplanade and close to the Race Track at the Fairgrounds where the world famous New Orleans Jazz Festival is held, the Five Continents is perfectly situated for a memorable visit to the "Big Easy". A gourmet Breakfast is provided between 8:00 and 10:00 a.m. Guests order from a menu of various freshly cooked specialties. Pets are welcome in the North American Cottage. An important note about parking at the Five Continents.... Our parking area in the courtyard can comfortably accomodate four or five guest cars. The courtyard, driveway, and gate are from the late 19th century. They were designed for horses and carrages. Small and normal-sized cars fit very well. Please be aware that vans, pick-up trucks, larger SUVs, and trailers will likely not fit into the gate or driveway and cannot be accomodated in the parking area. There is, however, ample unrestricted parking on the street for vehicles which do not fit into our courtyard area. ... more   less
