We stayed at the Frank Gerry suite and overall had a great stay. The location is spectacular and the staff accommodating and professional. My only one comment, the food at the bistro and bar is very heavy. I was looking for a fresh, light salad in both restaurants and couldn't find any. Other than that, the hotel is great.

First views of the hotel from the road had the "wow" factor. Wonderful welcome from the porter, but the check in process was a little slow. We stayed in the annex, accessed by a footbridge from the main building. Room was lovely; high ceilings, high spec appliances and furniture, very comfortable bed, amazing bathroom and complimentary bottle of wine and... More

Knowing that we would be in Rioja, and being Canadian, of course we had to plan a stopover at this hotel. Driving towards Elciego, you round a hill,and there it is - - these ribbons of titanium gleaming in the sunlight. Service and everything else is what one would expect from a Luxury Collection hotel. Warm greeting. They confirmed our... More

We stayed 2 nights at the Marques de Riscal and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The building is quirky and great fun.we enjoyed our room even though we were totally overlooked by our neighbours - we found ourselves willing to forgive a lot to stay here. The hotel is small so the atmosphere is good - staff very helpful and friendly.... More

This hotel is just fabulous. The views from the original part of the hotel look out to the vineyards and village. Try and stay in this part of possible rather than the rooms which were built on later. The staff are professional and helpful. We used the bikes to cycle the tracks beside the hotel. We also took the wine... More

The Marques de Riscal is simply one of the best hotels we've ever stayed in. The combination of Frank Gehry's challenging architecture with the idyllic countryside of Elciego works and the terraces of the hotel offer wonderful views. Rooms are spacious, very comfortable with huge bathrooms. Food is delicious and the €90 tasting menu is a brilliant blend of flavours,... More

What a feat of design and how it blends into the winery and the grapes plants all surrounding this beautiful hotel. We had seen pictures many times, but until you see the sun dancing on the curved roofing and the background of the town and mountains, it still is just a picture. Great rooms, service, and the food was out... More
