We had a wonderful time in this excellent restaurant. Thank you to Francisco Javier, our waiter, we understood the exquisite menu of this top place in La Rioja. If you are close, don't miss it. 😊 Reasonable sizes and prices for a Michelin restaurant

What a design just stunningly beautiful. Found the room large and comfortable. Rooms in the main block would be better if you've an option. Service was always great. I loved the library for a late night glass. Wine bar was also good. Didn't use the spa but with it opening at ten it's a tad frustrating it's so late. Also... More

There really isnt much to say about the experience at the Marques de Riscal besides that it is almost faultless. From the moment you check in, the beautifully appointed rooms, the comfortable beds to the attentive service.

This is possibly the best hotel we've ever stayed in. Our two days here were such a pleasure. Our room in the main building surpassed expectation. Breakfasts were good.
