So we stayed at three very different hotels during our trip through the La Rioja (Haro=Hotel Arrope, Laguardia=Hotel Eguren Ugarte and Laguardia=Hospederia de los parajes) and they all offer different things for diff people (Laguardia and Hospederia is truly amazing however!)
The city of Laguardia is probably the best city to stay in La Rioja (however remember that Haro although close is still a drive so if you want to explore Haro wineries I would stay in that area and then stay bulk of trip in Laguardia)
The entire hotel experience is delightful. The hotel staff are friendly and attentive. We checked in and Andrea was amazing and the Jean-Marie (porter/waiter) was friendly and attentive as well.
The hotel is in the town square (its a small town) and consists of 18 rooms some of which are suites. All of the rooms have a different name or story so you cant go wrong but do try to stay in one of the suites. The rooms are fairly large for European cities and have nice amenities.
There is an underground wine bar which is cool and romantic. .. .
I would highly recommend this hotel for a Rioja wine experience
Pros: everything is great
Cons: parking (but remember the city is walled off and there is no car traffic so not really con); you can park outside of walled city and then walk to main square. We parked near church by La Fabulista winery and parked there overnight (it is within walled city portion) and probably only parking within walled city
