Iconic building in one of the most beautiful parts of the world. What a pity this hotel has been handed over to be managed separately to the Marques de fiscal vineyards. If the hotel was run the same way as the vineyards then this would be a truly excellent hotel. Unfortunately that is far from the case. The hotel is... More

Designed by the famous Frank Ghery, it definitely is a beautiful designed hotel, inside and outside both. The look is almost identical to that of the Guggenheim in Bilbao, but the almost magical lighting provides you a bit different sense of beauty. The winery is wonderful (I'm a fan of marques de riscal wine) and the location is pretty close... More

We had a short stay at the hotel in our journey to Portugal. Our original interest was the outstanding form of the building in he pictures showing the distinct trace of Frank Ghery. To fully enjoy this we asked for the Ghery suite and I have to say that it was really an amazing experience. The wide room has 2... More

I was only at this hotel once, in the Gehry wing, and I really hope to come back. The architecture is amazing, and the location is great. The views were absolutely stunning. The food was good, and the staff was very friendly. I was on a tour around Spain, and I was in Barcelona, Bilbao, and Seville, and Elciego. This... More

Stayed here the second time, the staff at the front desk remembered us and even sent us a welcome email. The hotel was designed by Frank Gehry using the wine region as the theme, super beautiful and in the same property of another winery, so you get a free tour of the winery with tasting. While The hotel only has... More

Frank Gehry designed this hotel. I am golf that the roof resembles a flamenco dancers skirt in the colours of autumn vine leaves. It sounds like a blot on the very beautiful landscape but it does work. I am a great fan of the Rioja area, the wine, the food and the people. All a thousand times nicer than the... More

Amazing architecture. The hotel´s location, service and atmosphere is perfect for a couple occasion. I really enjoyed it. We stayed for a weekend. From our room we could see the vineyard. We also had the chance to visit the winery and taste their wines. Loved it! Never forget that trip to Elciego!
