“Comfortable, friendly, great location, amazing service!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 4, 2012

I stayed in the 5Oda for two nights with my wife. We went to Turkey to do business in the fashion industry and decide to stay in this lovely hotel after a friend recommended it. The rooms are amazing, perfect size for a couple, with a little kitchen included that allows you to prepare a meal. They serve breakfast (an amazing one, super complete) in the room. The hotel is built on a restored building, and the restoration is very good. From the window of the second floor we could hear the sounds of gulls flying around the neighbourhood of Beyoglu, but only when the windows were open. If you close them, you hear nothing!
The weather outside was really cold (we visited in November) but the rooms were warm and nice. The bathroom is a little bit small, but goes perfectly with the style of the room.
The best of all?: the attention of all the people in 5Oda, everyone treated us as friends, they speak at least spanish, french, english and turkish (and maybe more) and helped us a lot with all of our requirements. Definitely recommended!!
Located near Galata tower, is perfect to move around one of the coolest areas of Istanbul!

Room Tip: I would recommend the lowest floor possible, as the elevator is super tiny, and we preferred to walk...

4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 25, 2012

My boyfriend and I stayed here after hearing about it from my sister and her husband. Overall, a great experience. There was a little bit of miscommunication about our arrival time. Unlike hotels, the staff are not available around the clock. It also happened to be unseasonably warm and we were in the room on the first floor, which made keeping the windows open a little uncomfortable-since we were basically street level (they had turned the whole building over to heat). Besides these two blips the stay was great. Breakfast was brought to our room, and it was a breakfast fit for a king and queen. The staff were very nice and helpful with directions and recommendations. The room was large and recently re-done. The hotel is off a quiet side street in a great neighborhood. We walked everywhere in the city. It's about a 45 min walk to the Blue Mosque area and 10-15 min walk to the Galata bridge. There are a lot of lovely places to eat within 10-15 min of 5oda.

The hotel is in a trendy part of Istanbul with lots of bars and restaurants. Our room was clean, modern and very spacious. It is easy to travel to the historic region from the hotel. The management team was very keen to help us and give us advice about where to go and what to do. Highly recommended.

We just returned from Istanbul and has a wonderful time at 5oda. The location is excellent - easy to sightsee and also to go out at night. The team there is incredibly friendly and helpful. And, very importantly, the beds were so comfortable!

U would have to say by far this is one of the best boutique hotels I ever stayed in, location is excellent, just of estiklal street, rooms are lovely decorated, breakfast was just lavish, something new everyday brought up to your room......and last but not least, the staff were just very helpful and friendly, all the guest that stay there are all people who keep coming back, so that alone tells you something, I will definitely go back.

We could not have asked for more after our wonderful stay at this hotel. The owners/management and staff were so helpful and very welcoming. The breakfast (brought to our rooms in the morning) were delicious. The beds were extremely comfortable and the rooms spacious, attractive and inviting. I could have moved in and stayed there forever! Coupled with a great location, 5ODA is a total thumds up! Loved it!

Room Tip: Lift access to all rooms we had the 2nd and 3rd floor rooms - all perfect.

This was our second trip to Istanbul and, wanting to again stay in the Galata neighborhood, we decided to try 5oda. We could not have been happier.

Rooms are generously spacious and immaculately clean. The decor is fun but entirely practical. It was a pleasure to spend time relaxing in the room. Breakfast was superb and was a wonderful start to each day.

The location is ideal. The Galata neighborhood is filled with interesting shops, restaurants and cafés. The major sights are a quick tram or bus ride away. With the Tünel funicular just a short walk from 5oda, it was easy to get anywhere we wanted to go.

Most of all, Gulten and Sennur as well as their staff are fantastic hosts. They happily assisted with everything from airport transfers to suggestions for shops in the Grand Bazaar. No question of ours was too trivial and no assistance was too much trouble. In a city as potentially overwhelming as Istanbul, it was great to receive such expert guidance and sincere attention.

We are already looking forward to a return trip.
