The location and this hotel are an odd combination. The town/village itself is small but beautiful. Literally nothing else was open at the time (late September) and I didn't even see anything like another restaurant or bar which could have been open. However, this hotel is beautiful. Visually stunning and a great experience. Super friendly and helpful front office staff... More

We loved our stay at Hotel Viura in September 2013. A fantastic location from which to visit wine country. The restaurant was outstanding and served some of the best food we had in Spain. Intimate, friendly and modern. I highly recommend this unique hotel.

We had no issues getting here with GPS ( garmin) took us right to the place. Love this small boutique hotel. Our only regret is that we were just passing by on our way to Bilbao and stayed only one night. Because of the great reviews and how interested the placed looked I figured one day/night would be great ..... More

A few cautions: 1. Better rooms (more space, balcony, view) seemed to be priced equally with lesser. Try to sort this out before arrival. 2. Village streets are confusing. Google navigated us through threateningly narrow lanes to the useless rear façade of the hotel. The front approach is required and easier. Best to obtain detailed motoring directions in advance. 3.... More

This hotel is beautiful and modern. Nicely priced, comfortable and roomy. The surprise was the bathrooms in room had no real privacy, it was behind the headboard. A curtain for a door and the wall didn't reach the ceiling. If you are sharing a room, you should hope you can do all your "activities" quietly or you'll be sharing with... More

We stayed in this quirky building when making a wine visit to Rioja. We ended up eating the tasting menu twice as it was so stunning and nowhere else compared to this in the region. In the heart of Rioja so easy to get to the main locations of interest. '

My wife loved it, I didn't appreciate it at all. Except for the very skilled, friendly and helpful staff to me it was just a strange place. Was it modern??? With the cubic spaces, the naked concrete floors and ceilings, with the waste wood used as decoration??? I don't know. Was it minimalistic??? I think so. What counts for me... More

Wanted somewhere different and special to stop in Rioja for my 50th birthday. Hotel and staff lived up to expectations. Great. Location, although don't believe your sat nav if you put gps coordinates in! Ended up in a farmers yard at one point! Once there though, hotel is calm, tranquil and stylish. Staff had organised two vinery tours for us.... More
