The hotel was very easy to find. Great location, many excellent bars and restaurants near by. The room and amenities were great! Very comfortable and clean. The staff was excellent and very accommodating. I would absolutely stay here again.

Negative: dated, 70's fixtures, tiny shower stall, not really well-maintained, pretty brutal staircase makes this a non-starter for people with any sort of physical challenge, no breakfast. Not cheap (paid $210/nite via Expedia). A/C did not work properly: made loud noise each time it switched off, waking us up. Positive: great location, sweet service, spacious rooms, comfortable beds, good (Keurig)... More

My husband & I recently traveled to Seattle for the first time & stayed at The Inn at El Gaucho. We absolutely LOVED everything about it! A quick walk of some very doable stairs took us to a very welcoming, gracious staff & a very tastefully decorated lobby. Our check in was very easy & the staff was extremely friendly.... More

We loved our stay at IEG! The room was well appointed, clean and had a very comfortable bed with high quality linens. The location in the middle of Bell Town couldn't have been better, so close to the Market and the Waterfront. Coming in off of the busy downtown street we were concerned about noise, but our room facing First... More

ONE STAR IS TOO MANY! I am so floored with the experience I had at this hotel! 6 of us arrived at the hotel for our first time in Seattle! We should have known from the beginning when we had to take all our own luggage up 3 flights of stairs to the rooms ourselves. We then checked in and... More

We would definitely stay here again. The location is perfect, at most a 10 minute walk to the major tourist attractions (Space Needle, Pikes Market). The staff is friendly and helpful. We had a suite with a large sitting area so we could spread out. The bed was very comfortable with a pillow top, nice linens too. The building is... More

Stayed here for only one night and it was lovely. Staff was very friendly and helpful with any request that I had. The room was very clean and had a lot of character. Not to far of a walk to Pikes Market, wonderful places to eat and shopping. Give it a go well worth it.

I really wanted to love El Gaucho. And I think other conditions it would have been great. It is in a good neighborhood for food and site seeing in Seattle. The rooms are big and the bed is comfortable. I went to Local 360 both nights for dinner, which was wonderful. The bakery Macrina nearby serves a great variety of... More

Very comfortable, boutique, Belltown hotel. Caught the light rail from SeaTac, about 1/2 hour trip to Westlake Center. Monorail to Seattle Center there as well. Just under a mile to walk to Inn. Comfortable beds, wonderful amenities, cookies on arrival, wine available in the evenings. Very welcoming front desk ready to assist. This hotel is on the second floor, so... More

My fiance and I stayed at The El Gauch for a quick get-away. The Inn is located in a great part of Seattle. It's got a cool vibe that is refreshing compared to the cookie-cutter experience you get in a standard hotel. However, the bed wasn't that comfortable, but I'm spoiled with an excellent mattress at home & this is... More
