Firstly, if you are staying in Ezcaray - stay an extra night! I hope to one day stay for a week. It is a gorgeous mountain town with a stream and lovely walks. It is a fabulous spot to stay whilst exploring the Rioja wineries!! Our stay at the Echaurren Hotel was great! For EU80 for a recently renovated room,... More

We had the pleasure of finding this hidden gem while travelling through La Rioja. The El Portal restaurant came highly recommended from several locals "in-the-know" (owners of other restaurants, owners of wineries, hotel concierge) and it surpassed all of our expectations. From the minute you walk in the door you know you will be in for a world-class dining experience.... More

We loved this hotel! It is a surprising find in such a small village. The hotel has obviously been renovated somewhat recently as the rooms were very comfortable and modern. The staff were extremely friendly and the breakfast was excellent. The high point of our stay was the lunch we had at their restaurant. We had the tasting menu and... More

Ezcaray is a ski area in winter, and an outdoors destination in summer, with many rental apartments and lots of hiking and biking opportunities. The hotel is small, the rooms spacious with a very nice bath, our room had a tiny adjacent sitting room, too, and the rooms and the hotel are perfectly kept, neat as a pin, as the... More

We stayed only for one night and having arrived late, we were delighted with the comfortable bed, clean and clever design of the room and the amazing ham and cheese selection that room service arranged to be waiting for us in the room upon arrival; the complimentary bottle of Rioja was also very much appreciated! Breakfast was fantastic and had... More

Four of us recently spent a night at Echaurren. Our rooms were the modern ones (on the top floor) and we were very impressed with them. Amazing efficient use of space and quite charming. The women at the desk could not have been more delightful and helpful. The dinner was excellent as was the very delicious breakfast. And the town... More

The previous reviews were all spot on! We stayed here on our last night after 3 weeks in spain, and I have to say it was the best place we had been. The rooms are not huge but the quality and furnishings are quality and very modern in the superior rooms.. The additions of the free wine, snack box and... More

We stayed at Echaurren as our base for a 2.5 day visit to Rioja. We were only one of a few guests there at the time and received a complimentary upgrade. I have to say that the room was pretty strange--too modern for our tastes and not intuitive (and we're in our early 30's). It was also really small, narrow... More

Having seen the restaurant on "Rick Stein's Spain" we couldn't resist the chance to visit when we staying in La Rioja for the grape harvest. We went to the "traditional" side for Sunday lunch. What a fantastic experience. Luckily we booked. We started off outside having finos. We sat down in the restaurant at 2pm and didn't leave until 5pm!... More

Really friendly and good service...complete with complementary snacks in the room. The room itself was large and comfortable. Didn't eat at the hotel, but people say it's excellent. Ezcaray is well worth a visit too...and it's well situated to visit local wineries or the nearby ski resort.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Our parents inherited a small hotel - El Echaurren. They transformed it, converting it into their home and a home for all who visited. Our mother Marisa refined the traditional culinary meals of Granny Julia and stamped her own character and elegance on the dishes. Her efforts were recognised when she won Spain’s National Gastronomic Award in 1987.And now we, Marisa’s children - the fifth generation of the family, are dedicated to maintaining the essence of the Echaurren while at the same time invest in its future. As such, we’ve converted our old hostel into a modern, comfortable hotel where nothing is lacking. Our aim has been to give everything a contemporary twist but without losing the sense of warmth. You’ll notice a strong Nordic influence in the interior design. We’ve continued the traditional cooking of our mother which you can enjoy in the Echaurren Traditional restaurant. In 2002 we opened El Portal de Echaurren where Francis lets his creative juices flow freely. It specialises in avant-garde dishes - very personal and primarily sourced from the local area. Two years after its launch El Portal de Echaurren became the first-ever restaurant in La Rioja to gain a Michelin star. It has maintained this distinction ever since. In 2012 Francis won Spain’s National Gastronomic Award, a quarter of a century after his mother. ... more   less
