If visiting Rioja or around, this property is probably the place to be. Most of all, I found it very quiet. Rooms have plenty of daylight, comfortable large beds, wifi works perfectly. Staff is very attentive, smiling and professional. The hotel has the Marques de Riscal winery right next, hotel guests can visit and it´s a very recommendable one. Fine... More

If you had enough sea, this rural region may attract your attention. Hotel built by Frank Gehry (his visit card is Guggenheim Museum in Bilbao) in vineyards of Rioja. Absolute stunning building! Good spa (with French vinery cosmetics Caudalie) excellent food and of course Rioja wine. Taste it. Enjoy it.

We stayed at this property for 5 days in October. It is a perfect base to explore the Rioja region by car.

My fiance and I stayed her in September on an SPG award stay. We were upgraded to a fairly large room with a very spacious bathroom.

From the moment we arrived we were looked after with a smile. The room, restaurant, wine bar and spa were all excellent as was the tour of the winery, all surrounded by spectacular autumn colours. My only minor complaint is that there was no opening window in the room. We look forward to staying here again.
