I told my wife the plans for her surprise 30th about a week before we went. She was uncertain this was a good option- I don't blame her as we could have been heading for a destination more renowned for a younger scene. However, it turns out this was one of the most magical holidays we've had. La Guardia is... More

The hotel is spotless and in a fantastic position , the room was good size, the owner of the hotel could not do enough for us , the hotel is full of character. We visited in November so it was very quiet and we could not use the outside dining area

My husband and I stayed at Castillo for 5 nights and were very happy with our accommodations and the location of this beautiful town in regards to the rest of Rioja. Javier, the owner and runner of all things at the Castillo, is a true gem. You can see all of the hard work he puts into the hotel as... More

We really enjoyed our stay at this historic castle. The surroundings were spectacular. Javier is a very attentive host making every attempt to see that his guests are happy. He went above and beyond. We would certainly stay there again. We felt very comfortable in our room that had a large bathroom. The rooms have so much personality with stunning... More

The hotel was amazing. We stayed in the "Love & Madness" room a few weeks ago (September 2015) while we were in Rioja for the harvest and it was perfect. After long days of wine tastings and exploring in the mountains, it was great to come back to such a great and unique hotel. The room was outstanding as it... More

All the reviews are true!! Amazing hotel in a wonderful place. Javier is the perfect host, a true gentleman and is devoted to this stunning hotel. The cleaning staff also do an amazing job keeping all of the beautiful furniture and little details in perfect condition. Our room (La Fabula) was lovely. We felt like we were on honeymoon again....

Located in a village that is definitively a hidden gem (not so many tourist guides give Laguardia the attention it deserves) the hotel Castillo El Collado is a great place to stay for those who seek a classy, super well grommed traditional Spanish castle to stay in. I agree with other reviews that Sr. Xavier's (owner and operator) and his... More

Our first time to La Rioja, we are on a 16 night northern Spain trip including Sitges, Girona, Alquezar, San Sebastian and Madrid. We were originally booked at Hospederia de los Parajes but after reading the extremely helpful "MARIBEL’S GUIDE TO THE RIOJA WINE COUNTRY" we changed to Castillo based on her recommendation. We were happy with this decision. We... More

Javier, the owner/manager, made this stay forever memorable. He was absolutely fantastic! The hotel is very unique being in an old castle. The food was great...I strongly suggest you eat breakfast there...Javier does an amazing job with breakfast and the homemade apricot jam is killer!
