This place is in Beyoglu, a very nice neighbourhood in Istanbul. It has easy access to the tram (10 minutes walk), the subway (2 minutes walk) and the main port, Eminönü (15 minutes walk or 3 minutes funicular). Galata tower is just a short nice walk away, as is sedar-i ekrem street, with lots of cafes and clothing stores. Istiklal... More

We were completely happy with our 2-night stay. The room is cleverly designed, all blond wood; it's long and feels like a studio apartment. The kitchenette is new and functional; there's coffee and tea, great bathrobes. Great room service breakfast every day. Sennur is a perfect host – cool, cheerful and caring. Our outgoing flight was late in the evening... More

This is a great boutique hotel and we had breakfast there every morning. It is right in the centre of Beyoglu and very close to Galata towers. We enjoyed the hospitality thoroughly. Would recommend this place to go stay. Thank you for making our trip memorable.

For our return to Istanbul (we stayed in Sultanahmet at the beginning of our trip), our base was the 5 Oda hotel near the Galata Tower. The owner and staff were delightful, the breakfast delivered to our room was delicious, and the elevator for 1½ people was a big hit with our child. We were able to wander out and... More

Was recommended by my sister who resides in Turkey part time. Once you find it(get the airport transfer, taxis can't find it either) it's in a great location. Safe & centrally located. An easy walk to the Tunel or a short walk downhill thru music & gift shops to Galata bridge. Much better than staying in Sultanmehet . It may... More

What a nice place, 5 rooms only 1/floor, very modern and spacious rooms. Excellent location in Beyoglu, Istanbul. Extremely friendly staff, very helpful and caring. Feels like home!! Beyoglu is excellent for staying away from the old town "sultanahmet" area, although needs public transportation for the landmarks.

5oda has a great location, two blocks from Galata Tower and Iskele Caddesi ( lively, mile long pedestrian street) and the upper Tunel station( the short but extremely useful funicular that runs from near Galata bridge up the steep hill to Iskele. ). The rooms are large-- modern Scando appearance with built-in kitchenette , but the bathroom looks like an... More

Stayed at 5Oda in February and loved it! PROS: The location is just perfect in a quiet street next to Tünel and İstiklâl Caddesi. The hotel is clean, cozy and it makes you feel at ease (in the hall you can find also plenty of info and guide books about Istanbul). The 4th floor room is bright, wide, well furnished... More

We stayed at 5oda in April 2013 for three nights but with an early check-in and a late check-out it seemed much longer... When I read the reviews and I can see the pluses and the minuses. Mobility challenged, then give them a miss. Stairs into the property. Claustrophobic, then give them a miss. Two person lift. Bothered by people... More

The hotel is very close to galata tower but hard to find for the taxi driver. The owner is very helpful but not around all the time so if you want to check in at a different time then she has to make an extra trip. The room is big with kitchen so if you are a family who cooks... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
We love Istanbul and can not think of anywhere else to live other than this city and this neighborhood. So, we thought about ways we can share our passion for this city and decided to create a small lodge for our guests that would reflect the spirit and pulse of our magical city. We renovated a 1932 building and convert into 5 comfortable and large rooms, each about 38 sq meters, with the main concepts of comfort, space and individuality in mind. We invite you to experience our room and our city. ... more   less
