The hotel itself is an incredible display of art and architecture, but what makes it really special is the staff. From the moment we checked in and Pedro, escorted us to our room, the magical journey began. Everyone, from Yolanda in the wine lounge, to Diego at the front door, and Marta who gave us a tour of the Marques... More

Just a one night stay on our drive to Barcelona. Unique architectural designed hotel. Welcoming staff, all were enthusiastic and helpful. Amazing views of the mountains from our room (#14). Food, wine and service all good and we would definitely have stayed another night. Yes, it was expensive but a real treat. Lots of Bodegas to visit, many within walking... More

We stay at the Hotel Marques de Riscal for 2 nights during our vacation in March 2014. Before the trip, I agonized over choosing this hotel, given the somewhat mixed bag of reviews on Tripadvisor. In the end however, the fact that this hotel was part of the Luxury Collection tipped the scales for me, and I was not disappointed.... More

This was our second stay at the hotel (first time was about 2.5 years back). We stayed in room 27 for 3 nights which was situated towards the end of the annex, on a corner with a view of the town. The room was extremely spacious and comfortable. The view from the room was on to the Frank Gehry designed... More

Great beautiful hotel in a vineyard. Guard check in and out. Very private. We had a junior corner suite but it is more like a much larger room with very tall ceiling. Even with an extra bed for my son, the room was still very big. Great sunlight. Quiet. Roomy bath with all the closet spaces you need. Concierge are... More

This hotel was fantastic and so very unique! It was beautiful inside and out, and the views from our room were enough to make us not want to leave! The spa was also very nice, as was the restaurant. If we ever return to the region, we will definitely be staying at the Marques de Riscal again.

I read the reviews before we stayed in the hotel and I read the few most recent postings. I am fascinated at the strong reactions that this hotel causes, hence my calling it a marmit experience, you love it or you hate it! We stayed over the New Year for three nights and had an enjoyable time. The weather was... More

While the hotel is an architectural gem, the glitter ends at the front door. The staff, while friendly were mediocre at best, failing to answer calls from the room when one of the phones would not work, unable to provide basic information about restaurants in the town, and completely failing to recognize my status as a member of the SPG...
