We recently spent two nights at this amazing hotel and I would definitely recommend it to anyone visiting the Rioja region. The hotel itself is uniquely charming and it totally met our high expectations. We had dinner at the hotel twice and we thoroughly enjoied both meals, which offered us the opportunity to taste different local dishes. The owner was... More

This is a lovely Hotel, set in the beautiful Laguardia. We stayed for 2 nights. The rooms are all unique, varying in styles, views and bathrooms, spotlessly clean and very well presented. We were given the choice of 2 and chose the one with a huge bed, sufficient for a small family, even though it was just the 2 of... More

this is only a 2-star hotel but it was a 5-star experience because of the unique nature of the hotel. It clearly did to have all the modern luxury attributes one might expect and want from a 5-star hotel (no elevator; no on-site parking - but no hotel in Laguardia has it; not a large staff-the owner does everything but...

The Castillo has some charming sides, namely the fact that it looks so gorgeous from the exterior and the peaceful terrace. That's where it ends thou. The rooms/bathrooms are ageing and are not consistent with one another. Our double bed were two twins attached and our friends' room looked straight out of the exorcist. The breakfast is quite terrible with... More

We agree with everyone that this is a beautiful small hotel and clearly the pride and joy of the lugubriously charming owner. Perhaps though because we had been told by friends just how wonderful it was and especially the food, we were slightly under-whelmed. We had the half board option and whatever dinner menu came with it but we think... More

This wonderful, pristine castle hotel with individually beautiful rooms is not exactly cheap, but it is, truly, a genuine find. Good beds, lovely bathrooms and a warm welcome from the inimitable host. Highly recommended. Alas, the restaurant is a convenience-food paradise, if you like that kind of thing. Otherwise, eat elsewhere.

My family had a great experience at this very charming hotel. The host and staff made our short stay wonderful! My husband and I stayed in the "Amor y Locura" suite and it was perfect! The room had incredible views and a shower with several massage heads and a large bathtub that we enjoyed immensely after our long day of... More

We arrived in Laguardia with another couple for a few nights. This charming, small boutique hotel is converted from an old castle and located in the walled village of Laguardia. The guest rooms were clean, large and comfortable, each uniquely decorated and with beautiful views. The restaurant offered a varied dinner menu based on local ingredients, and the food was... More

I have always travelled extensively for pleasure and work. Recently I took my wife on a trip where we carved out three days for just us. We had not been to Northern Spain so picked it. Because the name LaGuardia made me think of the famous New York mayor, we decided to go here. A beautiful, magical town. But then... More

This means, you have to come here. The old little castle transformed into a little hotel has surprising rooms with very good beds. The host is incredible and the service he offers is more often seen in expensive hotels than in small places like this. Food is as well very good. Spanish traditional cuisine is at one of the best...
