This Frank Gehry building with a Michelin star restaurant is pricy but a real treat. We stayed in the main building and the room was great with curved walls with a view through the curved roof panels of the local village. The vineyard tour was interesting and the meals great. There are also good spa, sauna, gym and pool facilities.

Breathtaking Frank Gehry designed facade at this stunning five star hotel that celebrates Spain's finest, best known Rioja. I was lucky to get a room within the facade looking down the drive. Top class wireless Internet connection. Nice, welcoming bottle of Riscal. Then a storm hit and it was fascinating to watch how the curves of the facade coped with... More

This is the hotel manages by the family of Marques de Rical, one of the biggest winery in Rioja. We stayed there in the first week of Oct 2014, from the room which offers the view of ancient Chateau and farm, the room itself is big, bright in date time and romantic while the curtains are closed. The only problem... More

Fabulous design by Frank Gehry in a really interesting location right in the Rioja vineyards. The interior a little disappointing , think more like a Novotel with light wood floors and doors , red carpets and bare walls and bright lighting. Let's the luxury title down especially the stairwells. Staff very good. We ate at the better restaurant and glad... More

Every review about this hotel has to commence with its design. Absolutely astonishing! No need to talk about it more. It is experience. Both from outside and inside .it really looks marvelous. However, I am little bit frustrated with the interior decoration of the public areas(not rooms). No color harmony, lots of empty walls, wooden frames for such a modern... More

I consider this to be one of the great hotels of the world, and if you are lucky enough to find yourself in this part of the world one day, please try to stay here. It is spectacular. Obviously because it is architecturally unique, but also because the attention to detail is outstanding. The rooms are perfect, the views are... More

My husband and did a two day self drive tour of the stunning Rioja District. One of the reasons we stayed here is the building is designed by Frank Gehry who also designed the Guggenheim Art Gallery in Bilbao. We visited the Guggenheim and then drove and stayed at Marques De Riscal and we were not disappointed. The hotel is... More

Stopped here with helicopter (has a great private helipad). Hotel looks amazing from the outside, and is just as good from the inside. Hotel is run by Starwood so expect great attention to details. Spa and indoor pool were a great place to relax. Vineyard tour was good, very informative, and being one of the biggest producers of wine in... More
