I stayed at El Gaucho Inn this past week and truly enjoyed my stay. The suite was on the corner with a comfy bed, leather coaches and views of Belltown. The suite was clean, well maintained equipped with a flat screen, cd player, etc. Most of all the afternoon front desk representative Sandra displayed top notch customer service. Sandra was... More

This place was really fun! The staff are so friendly, helpful and welcoming. The place is quaint and a little bit on the shabby side, but in a charming way. I was bummed that there was no tub in the bathroom, but the shower was fantastic, so I can't complain! The location is excellent, and makes it easy to really... More

My son and I spent a few nights at the Inn at El Gaucho in the Belltown area of Seattle. The Inn is located on the upper level of the five star El Gaucho steakhouse; a culinary throwback to another era. Concierge Sandy and her staff are wonderful. Couldn't be nicer or more educated about Seattle and fun stuff to... More

Being a small hotel with less than 20 rooms, the staff will make sure you are taken care of properly. Nice little gestures when we checked in like a hand written note welcoming us and some sweets. Plus wine tasting in the lobby everyday from 4 on. The staff was super helpful when I had any questions. If you decide... More

This staff knows how to treat a customer and are AMAZING at providing service. They were all friendly, all accommodating and all willing to go above and beyond to make our trip perfect. Being on top of El Gaucho is a treat as the restaurant is phenomenal and the service there is just as good as the hotel.

I have stayed in nearly every DT Seattle Hotel and El Gaucho has become my go to spot. Small boutique style, top notch personal service, and a location in active neighborhood with easy access to DT businesses, Belltown culture and, Inner City sites make it my favorite. Add to that a complimentary wine reception and actually has well chosen wines... More

This place is awesome. Great location. Great rooms. Typically great service. With that said, they are not at all flexible. And actually, they can be fairly rude. It's one thing to have rules. It's entirely another to actually use common sense in the application of those rules. Guess that's what they need to work on. Sad. I'm just one customer... More

The Inn was an unexpected gem of a find! This was my third time to Seattle and I loved how close the Inn was to a variety of places and restaurants in Belltown! The front lobby area is cozy and has a lovely fireplace, couches. My room had Audrey Hepburn pictures and a view of the water. TV was a... More
