The service is the best I have ever received anywhere in the world! Every staff member went out of his or her way to be friendly, helpful and courteous. We ate at the restaurant downstairs. It was as good as the hotel!!

This is an overall amazing place to stay. There is nothing negative to be said about the Inn at El Gaucho. Checking in was flawless thanks to Emily. She checked us in, brought our luggage up the freight elevator, valet parked our car and made our dinner reservation at their on-site restaurant. Before dinner we stopped by the lobby for... More

The service was personable and they went out of the way to make you comfortable. I loved the little touches like the Bose stereos in the room, the free wine tasting fro 5-7. Room was smallish but very clean and nice retro decor. Found this to be the perfect spot for my husband and I "kid free" get away for... More

What a delightful place to spend a great weekend in the heart of Bell Town. El Goucho is located between the Space Needle and downtown Seattle. Also, Pikes Market is within walking distance. Our room was spacious and the bed was comfy. Located on street level is The El Goucho Restaurant. We enjoyed their happy hour - and reasonable prices.... More

My partner and I stayed here and were pleasantly surprised. The entire staff was amazing. Our room (17) was adorable and spacious! Great sitting area and nice comfy bed! Even had a Keurig and fridge! In such a great area!

We were looking for an overnight stay in downtown Seattle that was close to the Cruise ship dock area. We came across this 17 room inn and read the reviews and decided to give it a try. We are glad we did! Very personable front desk service. The room was very tastefully retro. Very comfortable bed...the only noise was Seattle's... More

If you are looking for a very nice and comfortable place to stay in Belltown then this is the place for you. If you are looking for a place to party in your room then you will be sadly disappointed. I stayed here overnight in June 2015. The first thing was that on approach this was not the easiest place... More

First let me say I bought a car in Seattle sight unseen on Ebay. The transaction went smoothly but I never met the seller and the car was left on the street down the street from The Inn at EL Gaucho and the keys, documents etc left at desk. The car was beautiful as described but wouldn't start. Upon texting... More

very nosiey with street noise and bars near by, dicey part of town. Is in a local withing walking distance of the needle and museum, far from the wharf though. be prepared to climb a steep staircase with your luggage, no elevator and the downstairs of the "hotel" is a bar. Staff was friendly.

We spent two nights in a beautiful room. The only drawback was that there is no elevator, but otherwise, we couldn't have asked for more. It is close to the Space Needle and related attractions, and not that far a walk to other downtown locations.
