Location great. Walking distance to everything we wanted to see. Room great. Staff very helpful. Lee, the lovely lady who first saw us when we booked in couldn't have been more helpful. She gave us lots of information about Seattle and was extremely friendly and helpful. Lee went above and beyond in customer service.

The Inn is a really neat place to stay in! I stayed only one night to be close to the bell harbor conference center. I stayed in the deluxe king junior suite. It was huge! Nice king bed, long couch and huge TV. The room was nicely decorated and made me feel like I was in a swanky hotel room... More

The Inn at El Gaucho is amazing! It is a funky gem located in a perfect location near Pike's Market, the Space Needle, Chihuly Gardens, EMP Museum, Olympic Sculpture Park and the waterfront. We walked everywhere! Our room was spacious, clean & view of Bay. The staff couldn't be nicer or more helpful! Celebrated our 25th & they surprised us... More

Don't let the outside throw you off. The Inn is very nice and the staff is exceptionally friendly and helpful. The rooms are large and comfortable with ample sitting area. We were welcomed with a personalized note and cookies. The Belltown area is walking distance to needle and market and harbor area. Lots of restaurants, deli, and bakeries nearby. The... More

An old college friend and I decided on a whim to visit Seattle as neither of us had ever been there before. We flew into Seattle from California with no hotel reservations, thinking we'd find something once we arrived. We're both impulsive sometimes. Anyway, after spending about an hour outside the airport looking online, I decided to look through Tripadvisor.... More

Location perfect between Pike Market and Space Needle. The staff was incredibly accommodating. We had two bikes with us on our travels they assisted in carrying up and down the stairs and stored for day while we walked around downtown. Lee, the concierge, was incredible helpful while we were checking in and running late to meet friends for dinner. The... More

Arriving in Seattle after a very long flight we were made very welcome. There is no elevator so grab the doorman to transport your bags to the first floor as you follow behind. Our room was very spacious with a sofa and chair in the room. Very comfortable bed, great shower and has a air conditioner so we were able... More

I've bene there for 2 nights with my family. First of all the bathroom was dirty, I found hair on the floor and I asked for extra cleaning! The room was really uncomfortable because the only window was inside an internal garden, there were other 2 windows but too high on the wall like in a basement. I felt like... More

There are many plusses but I must begin with the negatives because their Web site doesn't make them clear. Prospective guests need to know that The Inn is not handicapped accessible; in fact there are 34 steps to the 2nd floor lobby and guest rooms (by comparison my house has 13 steps between floors) and no elevator. After a long... More
