“Great mid-budget hotel”
Reviewed September 4, 2013

If money's a big factor in your decision-making process and this hotel's showing up as a good low-priced option, then it's totally worth it. The location is between downtown and Belltown, which is actually great - it means that you can get really easily to either one on foot if you like. The hotel itself has a sorta modern bohemian vibe, and the staff were really friendly. This place isn't a five-star hotel and doesn't purport to be, but it's clean, the wifi is good, the shower is good (although in my room it was a standalone - that doesn't bother me at all but it does some people), and the bed was comfy. The room itself was actually quite nice with hardwood floors, which I also really liked (but again, some people don't).
I think it was a bit short on amenities but since I was there for business I didn't really use anything except the room.
Personally, I liked this place a lot but it was more about the location and vibe than anything else.

Fun and colorful hotel with a great staff who were friendly and helpful. Close to the Space Needle and the Belltown area. Free WiFi and bikes to lend to guests. Great recommendation for a late lunch from the staff and the breakfast at the attached diner was good as well. Would stay there again.

Liked the location as it was a reasonable walk for us to public transit, Pike market, or other shopping and eating excursions. The decor is very modern and edgy. Front desk girl Skye was friendly and efficient. Our room had AC where our friends in other downtown hotels did not. No fridge. The only negative we experienced was the shortage of towels after the room was cleaned.

As mentioned in other reviews, this is in a great location with easy walking distance to many attractions. It is also easy to get to by taking the train from the airport. The staff was helpful and made good suggestions about restaurants, etc. Our room was clean and comfortable. I think it was a decent value for a hotel downtown.

We really loved our time here. Location is perfect - closed to Space Needle area and downtown. It's very clean and spacious, I really enjoyed the decoration of the room and hotel itself, they really took care of all details - loved the note next to the umbrella in the room. Also the staff is fab!

The only thing I'd suggest is a brighter light at the bathroom by the shower.

I'm glad you enjoyed everything about our hotel, including the staff :) We are currently re-evaluating some of our light fixtures and energy efficient bulbs to create a brighter finish that is still an energy saver.

Great location - walking distance to Space Needle area and downtown. A few minutes more and you're at Pike Place Market. A great look to the place, too -- kind of EuroStylish. Also Loved: Funky decor, free coffee and cupcakes all day in comfy lobby that has computer terminal for guest use, free bikes to borrow. Staff friendly, young, personable.

Room Tip: Our room, 408, faced away from monorail and we had no noise whatsoever.

First time in Seattle for an Alaskan cruise. As new visitors we were unsure of our location in time and space. Took the Link train right into Westlake Center which is a 1/2 hour ride but much cheaper than a cab. Hotel Five was a straight level 4 block easy walk from Westlake, even with luggage. We were met by a super friendly desk clerk, Brennan, who was so welcoming and friendly. He supplied us with maps and other information about the area. Hotel is funky retro but very tasteful. Room was clean and fully supplied right down to a Keurig, bottled water and even an umbrella in case in rain! Location is central and safe for walking to all area sites. Would highly recommend and would return to Hotel Five in the future.
