Reviewed yesterday NEW

Situated in the heart of the beautiful vineyards, the hotel is a stunning building. The staff are very welcoming and helpful, and the bedroom was perfect and very comfortable. Parking is easy, and the wine tour was fascinating. It was a very quiet time of year, so the main restaurant was closed and the bistro a bit lacking in atmosphere....

HOTEL’S FAVORITE REVIEW
Reviewed December 8, 2016

As I was planning some day trips during our upcoming San Sebastián, I discovered photographs of the Hotel Marques de Riscal. My interest was piqued. If you want to see and experience the Frank Gehry architecture you must either dine at the restaurant or stay as a guest. (You can see the exterior of the building during the winery tour,...

Very luxurious bedding. Big room. The spa was enjoyable, and I used it every day we were there, even if the jacuzzi could not get up to temperature. The place felt stiff, perhaps understaffed, and Frank Gehry's open spaces don't work as well as a hotel interior. The winery is nice, but, perhaps not as exciting of a destination as...

Absolutely one of the finest hotels I have ever had the privilege to stay in. My wife and I were in a rental car on our way from Madrid to San Sebastian. We were using Starwoods points to stay in five cities in Spain. A friend who works for the Starwoods organization had recommended we stay here for at least...

This is one of my favorite hotel experiences! Driving up to this hotel s magical. We were fortunately there during harvest time f the grapes. The village was busy with tractors hauling trailers of grapes. The vineyard was a flurry of activity and a celebratory energy. We toured the vineyard and were up close and personal with the wine making...

We had the pleasure of staying one night in this amazing hotel recently. It's very difficult to impress my hubby who stays in hotels regularly for his job but he was blown away. We are both lovers of architecture, and in particular Frank Gehry's work and this hotel is stupendous. The colours, the textures, the curves and angles all look...

We stayed at the stunning Marques De Riscal for one night during our stay in La Rioja. This unique gem is situated in the middle of wine country in La Rioja, next to the old town of Eltziego (Basque). We were thoroughly impressed by the hotel. Everything about it screams luxury. Our room overlooked the vineyards of the accompanying winery...

I spent two nights at this wonderful hotel last year. Rooms are enormous with huge bathroom and any kind of comfort. Breakfast is amazing. Views: breathtaking!! I went there with a "Guided Tour" and honestly those were three superb days spent between vineyards and wine makers. EXCELLENT!!

It's hard to imagine this incredible facility in the middle of no where, but it looks EXACTLY like the photo! The atmosphere and amenities were top notch! We spent two nights there, but were not able to eat in the Michelin dining room, due to hours of arrival and their schedule. The food in Gastromomico was just OK-nothing to write...

What a fabulous experience. The service everywhere in the hotel was outstanding, the food in the restaurants was exquisite, the views are spectacular. Our rooms were oversized and we could walk out to the vineyards. Beautiful all around.
