“A very restful night!”
Reviewed January 26, 2014

After enjoying the "Swirl" wine tasting event at the El Gaucho restaurant it was wonderful to be able to simply walk up to my room. The bed and sheets are uber-comfy...I slept very well.
The sound view suite is well-furnished, with a small frig and coffee/tea maker, HDTV, and cozy furniture. There isn't much of a view though...you need to stand to see the water out of one window...if you want a great water-view the Edgewater hotel is best.
The staff here is friendly and the rooms are clean. I would recommend this hotel for anyone visiting Seattle's Belltown district.

Room Tip: If you want to save a bit of money, the city view rooms are very nice.

No problems at all staying here, infact we loved the character of the place. Stayed one night on a stop over from the UK to Hawaii. Rooms well priced for the £70-£75 we paid (we booked 2). Clean, comfortable beds, good showers and nice sofas. Can't think of anything more you would need for the price. We ate at the Seattle needle and it was nearby to there and fine to and from the airport time wise. Far nicer than staying in an airport hotel I would say. Thanks for a great stay.

I really enjoyed the hospitality from the staff. They went out of their way to accommodate us and the rooms were very nice. Being above the El Gaucho restaurant was also a bonus and I can't wait to return for the grass fed steaks.

If you need a place to stay and don't want all the frills and fees check out The Inn At El Gaucho. Perfect for a night or two and nicely located. You get a real caring staff and everything you need. Obviously the restaurant & bar are exceptional. Try it......you'll like it!

Whenever I have a special occasion that involves dinner and possibly an overnight stay, my first thought is always El Gaucho in Seattle. The food and service in the bar, restaurant, and Inn are always first class. From the valet parking out front, to the hostesses, to every member of the wait staff, I always feel like a MVP.

I celebrated my birthday at El Gaucho last week and spent the night in the Inn. We were given special treatment throughout our meal and stay. A few months back I treated my employees to dinner and a room at El Gaucho to celebrate a special milestone. Everyone still talks about that night.

Plan a birthday, anniversary, or get away to the city at El Gaucho and the Inn at Ell Gaucho. You won't soon forget it.

I am surprised by the bad reviews, because my friend and I had the most wonderful experience here. It is a very small hotel but the service was great. The restaurant downstairs was amazing as well. From the moment we arrived we were treated very well. The room was very comfortable. You should be aware that there are two flights of stairs you have to walk up, no elevator.
They have free wine everyday in the lobby from 5 to 7 which is nice.
I have to mention Staff Members David and Merica who were so very nice and went out of their way to make it a great stay.
I will stay there again when I go to Seattle.

The Inn is a unique and small hotel above the El Gaucho restaurant.
The Inn is within easy walking distance to Seattle Centre, Pike Public Market and downtown shops and restaurants. Use the valet service, its worth it.
Rooms are very comfortably equipped. Staff is very, very good. They go the extra mile as far as friendly and helpful are concerned.
The only drawback is no elevator; however, staff are very quick to offer assistance.
