While this was more expensive than any of the other hotels we stayed in on this trip to Spain, it was worth the cost. Spectacular and contemporary in design, it is the sort of hotel where you instantly feel pampered. Rooms are very spacious, bed large and super comfortable. Bathroom also has plenty of space, fittings top quality and with... More

Let's start with the good things: this is a modern hotel with stylish and good-quality furnishings. The rooms are well-sized and beds comfortable. Unfortunately those are the only good things in this hotel. AF Pesquera claims to be a luxury hotel, but it fails on almost every count. Some examples: - The hotel isn't in the village but next to...

This property is new and modern and the common areas are very pleasant and "cool". Unfortunately, we found the room very basic and lacking any luxury - all of the attention has gone into the common areas. I think the price of the rooms could be lower. The breakfast is typically Spanish but good and the staff are pleasant. First... More

The hotel is new, clean and the staff is polity, however, not able to provide good indications for the ones looking to explore the wine experience that the region can offer. The site is misleading when says the wine tasting is available - what may be true only during certain weekends, and that the wine cellar provides opportunity to explore... More

Hotel AF Pesquera is a stylish luxury hotel converted from an old mill. It is very modern and would not be to everyone's liking but it is ideally situated for the wine tour route. We spent 6 nights at this hotel visiting many bodegas in the area and venturing much further to visit very impressive natural parks for bird watching.... More

What a jewel. Tucked in Penafiel and perhaps its greatest secret is this beautiful and comfortable setting. I highly recommend staying here and using this as base as you can discover Ribera Del Duero wine region easily. It's perfect!!! The town of Penafiel was fantastic. So many good memories. There are a lot of small wine makers called "Bodegas" you... More

A very modern hotel, decor and rooms. Rooms were off a corridor and the doors made it look like you were entering cells. Friendly Reception staff and breakfast staff, limited English. Garage parking, nice gardens. Hotel is located just on the outskirts of the town which is easily walkable. The Duero runs alongside. Very Spanish and very friendly. It was... More

The restoration of this old building into a stylish hotel has been very well done and the room was very comfortable, large with a very good sized bathroom. When I booked they only seemed to have two rooms available, but it was clear when we were staying there that the hotel was virtually empty, so I have no idea why... More

This hotel is slightly odd for its surroundings. About ten minutes from the nearest bodega, Hotel AF Pesquera is set on the outskirts of the small town around it. The decor was, as many people have mentioned, slightly odd, but it served only to create a sense of isolated space from the outside world, an avant-garde modernist oasis in the... More

Everything here was perfect. Service was excellent, rooms were quiet and well laid out. The décor may not be to everyone's taste and the trip from the underground parking garage to your room can be very confusing but that said I would certainly stay here again if visiting the Ribera del Douro wine region. As a bonus we got a... More
