Having been hired to plan a wedding at the Hotel Marques de Riscal I had the opportunity to spend a great deal of time at the hotel and got to know the staff well. I must say they went out of their way to make our client happy and the experience was exceptional. During my 3 visits I was also... More

Wow is all I can say about this hotel. Great architecture by Frank Ghery, it is most beautiful during sunset when the titanium roof reflects the different shades of wine! The restaurant in the hotel 1860 offered great value for money €49 per person for a five course lunch with a bottle of wine (house selection), still water and coffee... More

I have stayed here three times, each time biking the Camino de Santiago. Each time I was upgraded to the corner suite with its own vineyard out the back door. I looked like hell each time I arrived, usually after 9-10 hours on a bike, so the guard was a little hesitant about allowing me through. The suite is a... More

The hotel is not easy to get to but it is well worth it! With world famous architecture, a vineyard and a Michelin Star Restaurant it is a destination to put on your bucket list. It is one of those places where when you show people where you stayed they don't believe it exists.

Iconic building in one of the most beautiful parts of the world. What a pity this hotel has been handed over to be managed separately to the Marques de fiscal vineyards. If the hotel was run the same way as the vineyards then this would be a truly excellent hotel. Unfortunately that is far from the case. The hotel is... More

Designed by the famous Frank Ghery, it definitely is a beautiful designed hotel, inside and outside both. The look is almost identical to that of the Guggenheim in Bilbao, but the almost magical lighting provides you a bit different sense of beauty. The winery is wonderful (I'm a fan of marques de riscal wine) and the location is pretty close... More

We had a short stay at the hotel in our journey to Portugal. Our original interest was the outstanding form of the building in he pictures showing the distinct trace of Frank Ghery. To fully enjoy this we asked for the Ghery suite and I have to say that it was really an amazing experience. The wide room has 2... More

I was only at this hotel once, in the Gehry wing, and I really hope to come back. The architecture is amazing, and the location is great. The views were absolutely stunning. The food was good, and the staff was very friendly. I was on a tour around Spain, and I was in Barcelona, Bilbao, and Seville, and Elciego. This... More

Stayed here the second time, the staff at the front desk remembered us and even sent us a welcome email. The hotel was designed by Frank Gehry using the wine region as the theme, super beautiful and in the same property of another winery, so you get a free tour of the winery with tasting.

Frank Gehry designed this hotel. I am golf that the roof resembles a flamenco dancers skirt in the colours of autumn vine leaves. It sounds like a blot on the very beautiful landscape but it does work. I am a great fan of the Rioja area, the wine, the food and the people. All a thousand times nicer than the... More
