Reviewed 28 March 2013

The perfect vintage hotel in the heart of Bell Town! An easy 10 min. walk to the Space Needle. The stay was made very comfortable by the excellent staff, and the little things like fresh cookies in the room. The room was larger than I expected.

Room Tip: The view from the SW corner room (#8?) was worth the extra $ - watching the ferries and other boatin...

The hotel was in the perfect location and the valet parking was very convenient. We didn't have to worry about finding street parking and we could walk to all our destinations. The staff was absolutely amazing; so friendly and helpful! The room was very clean and the bed was so comfortable we almost didnt want to leave the room :) can't wait to go back!!

I read the reviews berfor booking this hotel and they were correct. A great place! Very clean well appointed, comfortable. Nice amenities. I would stay here again in a heartbeat. The only downside for some is there is no elevator, you have to walk up two flight s of stairs. They take you luggae up for you.

This place was fantastic! The warm orange decor, the movie posters and photos, the free wine in the afternoon, the art deco fixtures and that is just the lobby. The rooms were great too - like a junior suite with a comfy bed and leather sofas. The hotel is on the second floor and I think there are only 22 or 24 rooms. My room was very quiet. One great thing about the old building is that the windows open in the rooms. Those who are spoiled by modern glass box Hiltons and Crowne Plaza hotels may not like this little gem as there is no elevator but the bellman was happy to lug my bags up the two flights of stairs. Parking is also difficult. You can valet or you can park on the street for free from 8:00 PM to 8:00 AM. During the day you have to pay to park every 4 hours (I went over by 15 minutes and I got a ticket). If you are like me and like small and stylish hotels like this one you will love this place. On the ground floor is a great restaurant and a wonderful bar. In the basement there is a movie theatre. I go to Seattle often to visit Boeing and I will definately stay here again. What a jewel!

No on-site parking, no internet WIFI or otherwise, no in-room coffee pot, no peephole in entry door, no posted check out time, bathroom door in need of repair, and 8am hammer drill in the restaurant directly below. Had to troubleshoot the tv / cable unit just to watch television. A complete fail at this price point. Will never return to this facility.

Great location, just above the Victoria Clipper Terminal is very convenient, and local restaurants are excellent! Rooms adjacent to the Atrium are particularly desirable! My wife and I will definitely stay at the Inn at El Gaucho again!

Good food with excellent service. Our server was fast and food was on time. Arrived 15 minutes early and were seated immediately. Free birthday cake. Our table was in a very nice and comfortable location. I will go back soon for sure.
