Great B & B, very friendly staff

Posted Jul 6, 2014
Good b&b, about 15 minutes walk to the French quarter. Good breakfast with all guest sharing a large table which is great to exchange experiences and tips. Good large rooms. Only downside is that you should not walk back from the main areas after dark but taxis are reasonably cheap and easy to get.

Cannot Pass on this B&B

Posted May 13, 2014
Pros: Comfortable bed Best pillows I've ever used! Free, gated parking on site Fantastic breakfast, cooked to order Beautiful building architecture
Cons: I'm not sure the bathroom/sink could be improved, but that was the biggest flaw. It did take a while to get hot water to the sinks.
Location: Location/Proximity to French Quarter (10 minute walk down Esplanade) Amazing local food options
My wife and I stayed here for 5 nights for a Saints game and New Year's Eve. We were absolutely blown away from our experience at Five Continents. The staff was very accommodating and helpful. The room was comfortable, and the breakfast was amazing. We stayed in the Asian Suite. The layout of this room was a little different, as the bathroom was ridiculously small and the sink was in the living room. Other than this little issue, the stay was quite pleasant. A definite perk of the B&B is the secure, gated parking on site. The room was approximately a 10-15 minute walk to the French Quarter. We felt pretty safe in all our walks on that side of town. The only area that was somewhat shady was about 2 block south of the B&B under I-10. We did take a cab from the Quarter back to the room a few times at night, because Esplanade is not extremely well lit, but the fare ran us about $6-7. We were so please with our stay, much in part to our experience here, that Five Continents is our first choice to stay when we return. You will not be disappointed.

Nice

Posted May 2, 2014
Pros: Comfortable bed, great breakfast
Cons: Maybe an evening cocktail social to allow the guest to mingle more
Location: The walk to the Quarter is a little far if you aren't used to walking most places but it's still doable. Taking the bus is probably a better option.
We enjoyed our stay. The food was excellent and it was fun watching the 10k runners from the balcony Saturday morning. Walking to the Quarter was a little scary the first time out since you have to walk under the freeway and the neighborhood you walk through is a little sketchy looking but no one ever bothered us and we had no problems at all. The bed and breakfast itself is in a cute little neighborhood with some nice cafe's just north of it.

Great Oasis

Posted Apr 19, 2014
My 9-year-old daughter and I stayed here for four nights in April, and it was lovely. The European Suite was comfortable and quiet, and Peter's breakfasts, prepared to order every morning, were incredible. We wanted to be able to walk to the French Quarter (15 minutes), but not to be in the center of the action, and Five Continents was the perfect choice for us. My daughter loved Akko, the friendly B&B dog, too. Highly recommend.

Old world charm with modern convenience

Posted Feb 16, 2014
Pros: The decor was old world luxurious with antique furniture, and spacious rooms. The bed was very comfortable. The breakfast was excellent.
Cons: The window heater air /conditioner works well but is quite noisy along with traffic from the street
Location: It's about a15 min walk from the north eastern corner of French quarter, where there are many activities.
If you're looking for old world world charm about a 15 min walk from the French quarter then this is it. The owner is very hospitable, helpful and cooks a wonderful breakfast.

Quiet, charming Inn...not far from French Quarter

Posted Feb 13, 2014
Loved our stay here! Only a 10 minute walk to the French Quarter, and the bus stops right outside the door as well. We stayed in the Eurasian Suite with our 11 year old daughter. The suite has two bedrooms and an adjoining bath. It was quiet and cozy. The rest of the house is lovely, with high ceilings and interesting decor. Peter, the host, is gracious, knowledgable, and makes a great breakfast! We arrived very late the first night but Peter stayed up to greet us. Akko the dog is also a highlight...quite a friendly, quiet guy. We highly recommend this Inn...we had a wonderful stay.

The rooms were comfortable , the hosts helpful. The proximity to the French Quarter wonderful. A small issue, the room lights were a bit dark, hard to read.
