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...

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...

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....

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...

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.

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...

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.
