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....

My partner and I stayed here and were pleasantly surprised. The entire staff was amazing. Our room (17) was adorable and spacious! Great sitting area and nice comfy bed! Even had a Keurig and fridge! In such a great area!

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. I stayed here overnight in June 2015. The first thing was that on approach this was not the easiest place...

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.

I had the best experience at the Inn at El Gaucho! This hotel has a great sense of style. The hotel has unique vintage decor and my hotel room was Marilyn Manroe themed!!

If you have ever had a meal at El Gaucho, you know the service is as good as the food. The inn upstairs is the same. Great service and personal attention to detail. I checked in after 11pm, exhausted from a full day. Emily was there to welcome me with a smile and get me settled in. Was a treat...
