This was such an unbelievable experience.. . ..to stay in not only a historic winery in La Rioja but to stay in a hotel designed by the legendary Gehry was amazing! We are SPG platinum and have traveled a lot and even this place left us with a WOW experience! When we checked in both Carolina (check in) to Serey... More

My wife and I stayed at Marques de Riscal during the second half of July 2015. The hotel is beautiful, with a striking modern design in a wonderfully quaint setting. The contrast between old and modern is handled superbly and really is what gives the hotel its character. We stayed in a room in the main building, with a view... More

The building is stunning and so unique, typical of Gehry. Staff in hotel were generally very helpful (excluding restaurants), apart from specifically being told at check in we were given the best room in our category only to find we were actually given the smallest room in our category (room 8) - it would have been better to say nothing!...

As you drive into Elciego your attention is first drawn to the beauty of the old village surrounded by vineyards.. But then you see it, the Hotel Marques de Riscal, sitting slightly lower than the city itself in the middle of vineyards. At first it appears daunting and out of place. Does this structure belong here? It does not take... More

The Marques de Riscal hotel is a jewel in the middle of Spanish wine country. The attention to design detail is everywhere, this place was built without a budget! This should be five stars, but they fall short on the service. It is very good, just not at a luxury hotel level: You can hear the staff talking loudly in... More

This hotel screams art, elegance, and character. Not far from Pamplona, it is still a destination by itself. Rooms are quirky and different, and hotel grounds (the winery) is such a beautiful place! We loved the hotel (though we are not wine drinkers!) very romantic indeed.

Frank Gehry created a masterpiece in the middle of a Spanish medieval town and vineyard. Rooms are roomy, bottle of wine waiting in the living area and chocolates on the pillow each night. Choice of three types of dining areas. Breakfast is included as well as a tour of the winery. if you are able to find the hotel in... More

My wife and I are just back from a trip to Spain that included three nights at the M de R. Wish we stayed longer! One of if not our absolute favorite non-seaside hotels we've ever been to. Great service in a uniquely designed, stunning hotel in a beautiful area. We were fortunate to get a room in the Gehry... More

Marques de Riscal has a beautiful setting within the vineyards of the same name. A medieval town is nearby and the mountains in the distance, all of which can be viewed cinematically from the giant panorama windows of the rooms on the front side of the Gehry building. Nice combination of old and new, excellent restaurants, attentive service. Highly recommended.
