We were looking where to go over Easter Weekend and search Starwood Resorts. To our luck this masterpiece was shown to us and away we went. First the design of the hotel is pretty incredible. We used to live in Los Angeles and saw Disney Hall everyday so was a bit accustomed to the architecture. To see this in an... More

My wife and I had our very first bottle of red wine together - a bottle of Marques de Riscal Rioja Riserva 1987 - shortly after we met. So a very special wine. And now there is a unique hotel above the bodega in which we celebrated my 60th birthday. In style. The hotel is an architectural masterpiece. The room... More

My family and I loved the experience of staying at the Hotel Marques de Riscal. The hotel staff were marvellous and they attended to all of our requests, as we were travelling with two kids. The restaurant was also a great success, with a mix of both traditional and modern Spanish gastronomy. My only two comments that explain why I... More

After visiting the Guggenheim we were determined to see the Frank Ghery designed Hotel in Elciegio. Thank goodness for Sat Nav, it is quite literally in the middle of nowhere. What a fabulous structure when you finally find it, it is stunning. Of course it is not in the middle of nowhere if you are a wine buff this is... More

Amazing architecture, beautiful views of the surroundings. Huge room. We asked for a room that is viewing the Gehry building and we got room no. 20 that was really great. Imagine your self waking up in the morning watching the beautiful Gehry architecture on your left and a picturesque view of Elciego village on your right. Like heaven. The library... More

I love this hotel. It is a stunning building; the architecture alone is worth a visit. However, the rooms are well equipped with luxurious marble baths and fantastic views of the town. The staff is friendly and helpful and the tapas lounge offers good wine (naturally) and tasty tapas. The only recommendation I would make to the hotel is to... More

The hotel is located in a wonderful area of Spain where you may not only visit wine producing "Bodegas" but also see charming old villages such as La Guardia, Samaniego, San Vicente de la Sonsierra or Briones. Free bikes can be taken from reception but you'll need to be fit enough to face the numerous hills of the region and... More

We booked the Gehry suit at the Marques de Riscal for our Wine tour, when booking the hotel we requested for a car to pick us up since we were getting there late at night, the concierge told us there was no need to reserve a car as taxis were all around and they were 5 minutes from the hotel,...

Must stay there just to see it. This Frank Gehry, designed titanium edifice set among the vineyards of La Rioja and juxtaposed with the medieval village of El Ciego is quite a sight. This hotel may be on its way to iconic status. Beyond that though, the hotel is excellent - the rooms were specifically designed for the hotel and... More

We came for the building and it didn't disappoint. In fact throughout our two nights (we'd booked for one but to appreciate the hotel we soon realised you need a minimum of two nights) the views evolved and were transformed, the reflections changed and the experience became ever better. It's a building that is so wonderful to live in and... More
