“close to everything”
Reviewed 19 March 2013

We only stayed one night but the hotel is close to everything. Easy walking to Seattle Center, downtown shopping and Pike Market.The hotel itself was very comfortable and clean. It has a urban decor that suits well in Seattle. The parking cost is reasonable compared to other downtown hotels which will save you some money. The free coffee and cute cupcakes were a nice litle touch. If your in need of a downtown hotel for a reasonable price this is your answer.

Phew! My last few hotel reviews have been negative, and I was worried that I was becoming a crank. But after a great experience at Hotel Five, it turns out that it’s not me!

The hotel is a former Ramada Inn, stylishly remodelled in bright primary colours and modern décor. The rooms are basic, compact and comfortable. Lots of extras included: WIFI, free bottled water, coffee and tea in the room, a room safe, & ironing board. Could use more closet space for sure, but there are lots of drawers. The bathroom was quite dark, but strangely roomy. There is also a small, basic workout room or if the weather is nice, they have complimentary bicycles. They even offer coffee/tea and adorable little cupcakes in the afternoon.

My biggest hotel issue is usually with noise at night, and although the room doors were not soundproofed, there are continuous fans that provide white noise and air circulation, perfect for sleeping. We stayed on the fifth (top) floor, facing the monorail/street, it was an interesting view and not noisy at all.

The hotel is an extremely good value for its Belltown location, and they offer special rates as well. It’s within easy walking distance of the major sites like Pike Place Market, Nordstrom’s, the Seattle Art Museum and many excellent restaurants. Parking can be ridiculous in downtown Seattle, but was only $15 here. Underground parking was a little dark and sketchy.

I was most impressed by the front desk staff, they were friendly and extremely helpful. We got an early check-in, great advice on restaurants and places to see off-the-beaten track. I would definitely come back here again.

The Hotel Five is situated close to downtown, a five minute walk from Westlake station, and a ten minute walk to the Space Needle. It's a boutique hotel with spacious, friendly rooms and nicely sized bathrooms. The rooms are very clean, the only downside is that you can't open any windows. The Keurig coffee makers in the rooms were a nice surprise. WiFi is free, and there is also an internet terminal in the lobby where you can print stuff out.
Staff is very friendly and helpful.
You can have breakfast at Max's Café, where you will find a nice selection of breakfast choices for a reasonable price. Service could get a bit slow some mornings since the lone waitress tended to get slightly overwhelmed at peak times, but she was always very friendly and generally remembered people's preferences after 2-3 days, and I personally don't mind having to wait for my eggs, I'm on vacation after all. They also serve lunch, which I never tried.
I very much enjoyed my stay at the Hotel Five Seattle and would definitely stay there again.

Stayed at the hotel five in Seattle, WORST experience ever. Car got broken into in their parking garage. Told the cameras don't really work, almost caught the thief but she managed to get away. bumped into one of hotel staff the next day during checkout, appears to be her, right down to the tat and dreadlocks, although they said it couldn't be here as she lives to far away. Hello. She works there. Manager said she would provide refund due to horrible room, extra charges for having four people in the room without anything being provided for them, uncomfortable beds, car being broken into, now refusing!! Beware! If it is the hotel staff it certainly puts your belongings at risk when you aren't in the hotel.

I thoroughly enjoyed my stay at the Hotel Five. It is in a handy location, short walking distances from the Pike Place market, shopping, Belltown and the Space Needle/EMP Museum. The hotel is small and modern and stylish with nice touches like free bicycles, free wifi, and free coffee & cupcakes. My room was well appointed and spotless and had a neat view with the monorail at eye level right outside my window, which i thought was cool.
The front desk staff were so helpful and accommodating - happily helping me out when i had stupidly booked my room for the wrong month.
No complaints at all. I would stay there again.

Hotel Five is a pineapple chain (same family as my other favourite Maxwell Hotel), and situated close distance to downtown shopping and attractions. The front desk staff were great - friendly and personable. Afternoon coffee with pineapple cupcakes in the lobby are the chain's trademark. Beds were super comfy and rooms were very clean. Decor is modern. Quarters are tight in some single rooms. You can also borrow one of their bikes and ride around town. All the amenities you need without paying the high prices! Parking is only $15/day and convenient that you can leave your car for the duration and walk easily everywhere; within 5 to 15 minutes you are at the heart of shopping, great restaurants, movie theatres and Pike Place. Walk or hop on the monorail to get to the Space Needle centre.

Great deal for the area. They must have a really good PR company , its presented a little more slick than it is. I didnt have anything that I disliked about the hotel, the location was great, the rooms were nice , beds were comfortable , the staff was super friendly ... it just lacked wow factor. but for the price and location it was a great deal overall.
