The hotel is an architectural masterpiece by Frank Gehry. This metal phoenix rising out of the vineyards in the Rioja wine region should be out of place but it works magnificently in the surroundings. The titanium metal shapes undulate across the building. The curves covering the building of pink titanium and stainless steel are massive. It is a brilliant piece... More

This unique architecture is fascinating you from the first moment you see it. Rooms are not much luxury but very modern and different . It is not easy to express my feelings of staying inside such uniqueness . Service is very elegant as it suppose to be. Expectedly high price but definatelly worths it.

We always wanted to stay in a small spanish city, but could never find an upscale hotel to feel comfortable with. This allowed us to do both. The walk to the city is a little dissapointing-- not so pleasant, but once there, it is a great city to expore, and within a few minute drive, there are some very interesting... More

We stayed at MR primarily to visit the Rioja region and go winetasting . We enjoy the MR wines so this made perfect sense.We love Gehry's architecture and wanted to experience his hotel. Loved the Gehry design of MR , enjoyed a marvelous view of the El Ciego village and the mountains from our room & appreciated the perfect service.... More

Absolutely amazing experience - everything: service, rooms, restaurant, ambiance.... It's a must-see gem in Rioja. We stayed in the main building (there are only 14 or 15 rooms there). Very attentive service, beautiful pool area and a spa (expensive).

Its bonkers but brilliant architecture is endlessly photogenic. A delightful spa, most comfortable rooms with huge beds, excellent restaurant and warm and welcoming staff. I cannot recommend this place highly enough! We were booked in for just one night but stayed on for a second as we were enjoying it so much.

An exceptional piece of architecture that houses a great boutique hotel experience! excellent service from a very friendly and helpful staff. Great restaurants. Convenient location for winery visits. Very nice spa. There are a very few rooms in the Gehry designed main building but try to score one of them as opposed to a room in the adjacent building. Easy... More

Situated in working vineyard. Lucky to have arrived second day of harvest so saw entire process start to finish. Nyheim hotel competed us to an excellent tour of their wine making on an industrial scale. This contrasted to the family run winery we visited in LaGuardia. The Gery building is extraordinary looking. Our room in spa wing was very luxurious,... More

This Gehry designed hotel has a fantastic setting surrounded by vineyards. The color of the steel fits well with the surroundings. It also has a Michelin one star restaurant which is an added bonus. They offer a tour of the winery and we found it to be one of the best winery tours we have taken.
