We were on a short trip to sample some Bodegas in the region and only stayed one night. Situated in a small, picturesque village the hotel was super classy to look at and stay in. We had a standard room but it was spacious and it had lots great touches. I lay in the bath for ages with a lovely... More

Sadly we only spent one night at the Hotel Viura, but I must say that it was one of our favorite hotels of all time. Keep in mind that we travel often and know good service when we get it! Not only was this property interesting and cool, and sexy and classy, the staff was so helpful and kind. People... More

If you are looking for somewhere to stay in this area then look no further as I'm sure that the options for somewhere better both on value and hospitality will be few and far between. We arrived early, no problem your room will be ready. In a moment, it was. We wanted to visit a Bodegas that afternoon, it was... More

Stayed here overnight on a quick NorthernSpain adventure and loved everything, the quirky boutique layout, private terrace, bed quality, shower pressure, staff and wow the bar! Given the hotel is a cubist (?) daydream attached somewhat awkwardly to a medieval rural village, who would expect it to work so well with true city slick, charming front desk, first class resto,...

We arrived from the UK on Brittany ferries (Portsmouth to Santander crossing - which was briliant - great food, decent nights sleep, plus we spotted 6 whales and too many dolphin to count ....highly recommend it - so much better than the dover calais ferry service) and drove the 2 or so hours to the Viura. Situated in a very... More

We spent one night (unfortunately...) at Hotel Viura. Had we only known....we would have booked for more nights. What a nice gem, great design, friendly staff, great wine and fantastic atmosphere. We took the hotel bike and went for a short ride, enjoyed the complementary wine tasting and the great room. We are sure to come back and highly recommend.

Very modern hotel, quite a contrast to the village it's situated in. But somehow it also blends in extremely well. We spent 2 nights here in June 2014 & loved our stay here. Spacious room, excellent breakfast, great dinners & a super helpful staff. Great artworks so that wherever your eye falls, there is something to admire. The location is... More

My husband and I stayed here for three days the last week of May. We absolutely loved everything. The contrast between the modern hotel and the old town worked. Our room was spacious with a view of the town, the bed was very comfortable and it had a great rain shower. We ate one dinner in the restaurant-- it had... More

Wow! Even when you've seen the pictures on their website, the hotel is an amazing sight. Not quite what you'd expect to come across in the middle a small ancient town, but it integrates surprisingly well. The interior shows the same imagination and attention to detail. The public areas exude calm, rooms are very comfortable and well-equipped. The hotel's restaurant... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Composed of whimsically superimposed cubes that seem to surge forcefully from the centre of the earth; punctuated by French windows that flood the rooms with views of the relaxing scenery. Situated in Villabuena de Álava in the Rioja Alavesa, Viura is perfect as a base for discovering La Rioja. Only 20 minutes away from Logroño and from Haro and 10 minutes from such emblematic wine cellars as Ysios and Marqués de Riscal. In addition to its magnificent restaurant, the bar, a fine old wine cellar and a gymnasium, Viura has wonderful terraces on the top floor with panoramic views of the San Andrés Church, built between 1538 and 1728, and of all the mountains of the Sierra de Cantabria. All hotel guests have at their disposal, without any charge, wireless internet connection, soft drinks from the mini-bar, gym access, bicycles and parking. The hotel also offers dvd players and a wide range of movies on DVD, for free. ... more   less
